Another Guest Teacher, Platinum Plus Returns

By Announcement

Tom Palmer Guest Teacher at Sterling MobileOne of our favorite guest teachers, Tom Palmer, will return to the podium at Sterling beginning Monday, June 19 for the 9:30 a.m. 90-minute class.

Tom has been teaching the 26/2 sequence since 2008 and practicing since 2007. He has taught at studios in the U.S. and around the world!

If you haven’t taken a class from Tom before, make it a point to while he’s in town so you can learn from this globally experienced teacher. He will be teaching through Thursday, June 29. Check the schedule to see when he’ll be on the podium!

On Saturday, June 17 at Noon, our Platinum Plus class will be back! Led by Michelle, this 75-minute practice incorporates the 26 postures of the beginner’s class, but it is also complemented by intermediate Ghosh postures, as well as vinyasa and yin postures.

The Platinum Plus is an excellent way to challenge yourself, work on new postures outside of the 26/2 sequence, and feel energized and accomplished. We recommend that you have practiced the 26/2 sequence for a minimum of three months before taking this class. This class is offered for a donation of $10.

Lucille’s Last Class (For Now)

By Announcement

LucilleFarewellforNowBlueLucille and Bill Moran opened Bikram Hot Yoga Mobile in October 2010 and established a thriving yoga community fueled by their passion and enthusiasm for the practice and the area.

Mobile’s original hot yoga studio quickly became a place where people from many different backgrounds and abilities worked through challenges to improve body, mind and spirit.

The studio was renamed Sterling Hot Yoga officially on Jan. 1, 2014, but more than a name change, it reflected an opportunity to add more classes beyond the 26/2 sequence.

Today, we offer Iron Hour, Inferno Hot Pilates, Vinyasa and Yin yoga, all of which allow the studio to welcome many more new people to our yoga community.

None of this would have been possible without Lucille and Bill’s decision to locate their studio in Mobile, and to share their love for and the benefits of hot yoga with us.

Lucille will teach her “Farewell (For Now)” classes on Wednesday, June 7 @ 9:30 a.m. and Saturday, June 10 @ 9:30 a.m. Please join us in gratitude for all Lucille and Bill have done for the Mobile yoga community and let’s send them off with lots of love.
