Sterling Hot Yoga welcomes Jessie Weddell to Mobile!

By Announcement

Jess guest teacher sterling hot yogaJessie grew up in Fairfax, Virginia as an athlete-turned-dancer. She found Bikram Yoga in 2012 during a very difficult time in her life.

As soon as she started practicing several times a week she noticed tremendous benefits in her focus, passion and peace.

Over time through consistent practice, she was able to heal the damage done to her body and mind and knew she wanted to share that gift with others.

She completed Sterling Hot Yoga Teacher Training at Casa Om in October 2014 and continues to take every opportunity she can to expand her knowledge of the practice.

Jessie will be with us on and off for a few months. She will teach Gold 90, Sterling 60 and Iron Hour! Welcome, Jess!

Reggie Wilson Shares Inspirational Yoga Story

By News

Reggie inspirational yoga storyThis is Reginald Wilson. Reggie started practicing with us in August of 2014. In his introductory month, he practiced 22 times. Since then, he practiced, on average, about three times a week.

This Superbowl Sunday, February 1, Reggie felt a tightening of his chest. His wife insisted he go to the hospital and after several tests, the doctors determined that Reggie had 100% blockage in one of his arteries and he needed a triple bypass.

After the surgery, the doctor asked him what he had been doing and Reggie told him, “Sterling Hot Yoga.”

The doctor said that there’s a good chance the yoga saved his life! His heart had actually developed alternate routes around the blockage and the strength of his systems got him through the surgery with relative ease!

Reggie returned to his practice this week and he is taking it slow and following our one rule. We are thrilled that he is Sterling!

Core Strength, Iron Hour and Standing Head to Knee

By News
Core Strength Iron Hour Sterling Hot Yoga

Iron Hour helps build core strength, which helps improve your postures in the Sterling 60 and Gold 90 hot yoga classes!

In many of the standing poses in our yoga series, we talk about the locked knee.

The locked knee, in good alignment with the ankle and the hip, is absolutely important, and it takes a great deal of strength to maintain it for more than a few moments.

In Standing Head to Knee, locking both knees is especially challenging.

In this wonderful photo example, Jason Winn is executing the full expression of the pose where his arms are extended, no longer holding on to the foot.

Yes, absolutely, Jason has a tremendous amount of strength in his legs, but it’s core strength that’s holding it all together!

Strong abs, strong legs and strong arms (and a lot of determination) are what allows Jason to pull off this beautifully executed pose.

It’s strength that supports flexibility and flexibility that supports strength. And now, Sterling Hot Yoga Works can help you to attain both.

Adding Iron Hour to your practice is a great way to improve your Standing Head to Knee and many other poses! But remember, taking the Sterling 60 and the Gold 90 also helps you to maintain good overall health! It all works together!
