If so, join Michelle Ryan on Sunday, July 26 at 4:30 p.m. for a new type of class that will help you utilize the science of passive stretching to effectively change your body, improve your posture and increase your range of motion.

Welcome, Tina Collins, New On-Site Massage Therapist

By Announcement No Comments

Do you have “issues in your tissues” that yoga hasn’t addressed? We’re happy to announce we’ve got someone on-site who can help!

Join us in giving Tina Collins, our new on-site massage therapist, a big Sterling welcome. She was born and raised in Nashville, but received her training in Mobile, where she graduated from the Mobile Institute of Soft Tissue Therapy (MISTT) in 2003.

Licensed as a massage therapist and neuromuscular therapist, Tina specializes in deep tissue, pain management and generally “works the kinks out.” 

In addition to Sterling, she also works at Family Chiropractic in Daphne and has been employed there since 2003. 

If you have questions about treatments or would like to make an appointment, contact Tina at 251-391-7901. She’ll be available Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and some Saturdays by appointment. 

Welcome to Sterling, Tina!

Sterling Summer Schedule Changes Announced

Need more time to enjoy the beautiful summer weather? We are making some seasonal adjustments to our class schedule for the months of July and August that may help!

Effective immediately, the following classes will be paused:

Tuesday, 8:15 a.m. Iron Hour

Sunday, 4:30 p.m. Yin Yoga

During this time, we will be evaluating the class schedule with you in mind. 

We have plans to offer some different and exciting classes as we head into the fall. In fact, we will be testing a couple of these new offerings in July, so stay tuned!

Of course, we’d love your input on what you’d like to see more (or less) of, so look for a studio survey soon as we work to build on what we think is already Mobile’s best and most dynamic yoga studio! 

 

New Studio Policy: Wearing Masks Required

By News No Comments

In compliance with the City of Mobile’s ordinance requiring residents to wear face coverings in public places, we are also requiring our students to wear masks at the studio. 

Effective Friday, July 3 and for 30 days following, everyone will be required to follow these guidelines: 

  • Wear a face covering when you enter the studio
  • Wear face covering at all times while in the lobby
  • Enter the yoga room ASAP and secure your spot
  • Please keep face covering on until class begins 
  • You may choose to wear face covering during class (make sure breathing stays efficient if you do this) 

In addition, please also adhere to the following protocols that will continue to keep Sterling a safe and happy space for all! 

Please enter the yoga room through the first door (closest to the entrance) and exit through the second door (closest to the back exit) to avoid congestion. 

While Sterling is a unique community and we all enjoy connecting with our fellow yogis, please continue to maintain social distancing before and after class.

Thank you for your cooperation and support!
