I have been struggling with hip pain for years. I feel great after this session and I will be returning to it regularly until I can sit as deep in the poses as you! Thank you!

This video introduced me to the yin/yang style of yoga and it's right up my ally! I can really feel the difference. Trying to get back into a yoga routine since the gym is out of the question right now and this style seems to be a great way to get me going again. Thanks!

This really helped my hip and lower back pain. Thank you, Sarah Jane.

I, too, have hip flexor difficulties like TurtleVsHare, so a modification would be helpful. However, I truly appreciate the flow of discussion during the poses to reinforce the need for keeping open and breathing.

The class is good and I felt more flexible, more fluid at the end but that one simple position at about 10:30 is basically impossible for my hips and knees. A modifier there would have been helpful.
