We’ll Help You Chill Out in Final Savasana!

By Announcement
chilled lavender towels final savasana

Lavender helps alleviate anxiety, insomnia, depression and restlessness. That means our chilled lavender towels will make your final savasana even more relaxing!

The lavender herb can trace its roots (haha!) all the way back to ancient Egypt where it was used in the process of mummification.

Its name comes from the Latin words “lavare,” which means “to wash,” and the similar word “livendulo,” which means “livid” or “bluish color.”

Research has revealed that the essential oil of lavender may be used for treating anxiety, insomnia, depression and restlessness.

Always striving to ensure you have a great experience at Sterling Hot Yoga Mobile, we have put into place a system for everyone after every class to relax even more at final savasana with cool, soothing lavender towels!

We rolled out the towels (haha!) just in the last week, and we will be working to ensure everyone has the opportunity to relax with a lavender towel at the end of class.

If, for whatever reason, you don’t want to receive a lavender towel, that is absolutely no problem. Just let the teacher know.

When you are finished with class, please place your used lavender towel in the basket just outside the hot room door with any rented Sterling practice towels. We’ll take care of the rest. We hope you enjoy!

Get Ready for the Alchemy Challenge!

By Announcement
alchemy challenge, sterling hot yoga, body composition testing

Alchemy is the forerunner to modern chemistry.

Sterling Hot Yoga is billed as a ‘foundry for change.’

A regular practice can bring about physical, mental and emotional changes, and many of our students’ personal stories and experiences have reinforced that.

So to build on that idea of change, Sterling Hot Yoga Mobile is organizing an alchemy challenge.

What does that mean? Well, the definition of alchemy is “transforming a substance into great value; an elixir of life!”

When you practice Sterling Hot Yoga, you are chemically transforming your body and mind into something greater, better, stronger and, yes, you are creating an elixir of life!

So with that in mind, we are introducing the Alchemy challenge. Here’s how it works:

1.  Before your challenge begins, you will schedule a one-on-one meeting for a baseline analysis which will include:

  • Basic Nutrition Counseling
  • Basic Yoga Therapy Consultation
  • Body Composition Analysis, including: percentage of body weight that is fat; percentage of body weight that is muscle; and calculation of ideal weight.

2.  You will commit to the following schedule each week for four weeks:

  • Two Iron Hour Classes AND
  • Two Gold 90 OR Sterling 60 classes

3.  You will complete an exercise and nutrition diary to track eating and moving habits and general health (feelings, thoughts, sleep patterns, moods, etc.)

4.  After four weeks, you’ll meet again to review your nutrition diary and recalculate your body composition for comparison.

Body composition testing in Mobile can cost upwards of $200 for one test. At SHY Mobile, two consultations will cost you only $79 (in addition to your membership) for those on autopay and $109 for those on an introductory, comeback special or other non-autopay package.

If you want to do a second month of Alchemy, the price for a third meeting is $49 (in addition to your class package).

Space is limited – so sign up now for your transformation!

The Spring Challenge Begins Soon!

By Announcement

Sterling Hot Yoga Spring ChallengeThis challenge will be different than any other we’ve done before and you are going to love it!

Here are the steps:

STEP 1:  Choose the number of classes you will complete in the 30 day period:  15, 20 or 30.

STEP 2:  Choose your mix of class types — your challenge must include the Gold 90, Sterling 60 and Iron Hour. You get to pick how many of each class you will take.

STEP 3:  Choose a personal affirmation that you will commit to saying at least once during every class. Your challenge card will give you options — they include affirmations such as:

  • “I now achieve my goals with joy and laughter.”
  • “My gratitude is strong and constant.”
  • “I love who I am and whom I’m becoming.”

STEP 4:  You will be assigned a team. Work with your team members to encourage them to keep coming, to get encouragement, to work together, to make friends and to ensure success for all!

WHAT DO YOU WIN?

1.  If you complete your personal goal, you will receive a challenge T-shirt and you’ll be able to sign the Challenge Wall.

2.  If your team collectively completes more classes than any other team, your team gets two prizes:

  1. One person on the team will be randomly chosen to receive three months of free yoga!
  2. Your team gets to choose one person to receive three months of free yoga. That person can be in or out of your group. It can be whomever your team chooses. So now you are not just doing the challenge for yourself, or for your team. You’re doing it for someone you choose who needs the yoga!

THE FINE PRINT

1. Challenge begins on the first class on April 19 and ends after the last class on May 18, 2015.
2. Each person must complete a challenge card and keep it on file at the studio.
3. Participation will be confirmed by studio software — make sure to sign in for class!
4. All classes must be completed at SHY Mobile. Hot yoga classes completed at other locations will not apply to this challenge.
5. Teams will be randomly assigned by SHY staff.
6. Team members will be posted on the chalkboard.
7. Winners will be announced on May 23 after the 9:30 class. We will host a party at the studio for all challengers!

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!
