Sterling Introduces Inferno Hot Pilates

By Announcement

inferno hot pilates, mobile al, sterling hot yogaSprite, Michelle and Lucille recently returned from Houston, where they attended an Inferno Hot Pilates teacher training! And now, they are excited to share this class with our Sterling community.

After just two classes, Lucille said she feels stronger and already can see muscle development.

Michelle, who has taken multiple Inferno Hot Pilates classes at Bikram Hot Yoga Huntsville, said it’s a challenging practice that delivers quick results and helps you realize greater potential in yourself!

The course was taught by the world-renowned Gabriella Walters, who designed and founded Inferno Hot Pilates. The class is a fun, challenging, full-body, low-impact, high-intensity practice using the principles of Pilates, including mindfulness, humility, control and breath.

Performed on a yoga mat and towel in a slightly heated room with energetic music, Hot Pilates is an amazing practice that strengthens muscles and burns fat. It is designed for all fitness levels. Both men and women love it!

Mobile is the first studio in Lower Alabama to offer this amazing class! I am confident that you, like me, will find this class to be life-changing!

We will offer Inferno Hot Pilates on Tuesday at 6:15 p.m.*, Thursday at 8:15 a.m. and Saturday at 9:30 a.m.* Starred class times will rotate with other offerings, so be sure check the schedule to verify class type.

Julia Szvath to Visit Sterling Hot Yoga Mobile

By Announcement

julia svath holistic therapyThe last time Lucille was in Mexico, she worked with Julia Szvath to identify the patterns of thought that were not serving her and that may have caused the dis-ease she was diagnosed with or at least got in the way of her healing.

Through breath work, body work and emotional exploration, Julia’s holistic approach has helped Lucille to heal her body, mind and spirit.

Julia says that, “A holistic approach is crucial to achieving long-lasting positive results. Treating the whole individual as an interconnected being rather than treating a symptom or an illness is the key to re-establishing balance, peace and harmony. We all have the power to make ourselves happy and well.”

Julia will be in Mobile on March 22. If you are interested in working with her, let Lucille know. Learn more about Julia at exclusivepersonalretreats.com.

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.
