New Sterling Classes to Be Added!

By Announcement
new yoga class schedule

We are adding a few new offerings to the Sterling lineup! We encourage you to try each one and incorporate these classes into your practice. Keep your eye on the schedule—new class times may change and evolve in order to encourage best attendance.

Rest-Air-Ation: a 30-minute class focused on conscious breathing. This particular breath class is based on a Kundalini sequence designed to open the heart, provide a calming effect, eliminate unnecessary thoughts and feelings, and be more present. Rest-Air-Ation will be offered initially on Friday after the 9:30 am class and on Saturday after the 9:30 am class. As it grows, more classes will be added.

Melting Pot Meditation: In foundries, a melting pot is a metal, clay, or ceramic vessel in which metal is melted. At Sterling, we offer a class of guided meditation in order to allow your body to melt away your fears, concerns and trifling thoughts. Melting Pot Meditation will be led a few times a month by a variety of individuals skilled in the practice of mindful thinking and rumination. Betsey Grady led a very popular guided meditation a few months ago, and she will be back again on February 24. We will offer two melting pots in March. Check the schedule for this periodic offering so you don’t miss it!

Hot Bronze Flow: The Sanskrit word “Vinyasa” refers to a transition between two different positions, so the emphasis is on the flow from one posture to the next. Vinyasa also means one breath, one movement. If you practice Iron Hour, you will be familiar with some of the postures in Hot Bronze Flow, but there will be many more that will challenge your core, your balance and your mind. Brooke Nisbet will be leading Hot Bronze Flow on Tuesdays at 6:15pm. You’re going to love her!
