At least we can count on the consistency of these yogis in our year-long Renew You 2020 Challenge!

Congratulations to these students who showed up on their mat at least 20 times in June. We’ve gotten used to seeing their names!

We are updating your challenge cards with your monthly classes here at the studio. (But you can always check your visit log when you sign in to your Mind Body account to make sure you’re on track with your goals.)

Keep in mind you are working toward some great prizes at the end of the year! 

Everyone who completes 20 classes each month of 2020 will earn a place on the challenge wall and a long-sleeved Dri-Fit pullover, and will be entered to win an annual membership or one of two Fitbit fitness trackers. 

And for every month you complete 20 classes, your name is entered into a drawing for some awesome prizes too!

Congratulations, everyone! It’s a new month, so time to get back to work!

Update from Sterling Hot Yoga & Wellness

By Announcement

We’ve always known that each of you contributes to the positive, healing and fun environment at Sterling Hot Yoga & Wellness.

But without your physical presence at the studio due to our temporary closure related to Covid-19, it is even more apparent. The studio is just not the same without you!

If you feel affected by fear, sadness or anxiety, I encourage you to reflect on an important benefit of a regular yoga or Pilates practice. 

One of the most important things you learn on your mat that can translate off it is building resilience, the ability to act from a place of peace and calm regardless of the situation you are facing. Now more than ever, it’s important to keep moving, stay focused and stay strong.

We are making it easy for you to maintain your regular practice from the safety of your home. 

Many of you have joined our livestream classes in our Zoom Room, and we’ve had nothing but positive comments from those who are participating.

Of course, it’s not the same as practicing in the studio, but this is a great opportunity to focus on other aspects of your practice, like stillness, breath and awareness.

But it still offers you a way to “meet” your friends in the hot room, and we all could use some connection to the outside world right now. (See instructions on how to join these classes below!)

Thank you again to everyone who is able to continue to support Sterling Hot Yoga & Wellness. By maintaining your membership, you are not only supporting the studio, but also each of our teachers who work tirelessly to provide compassionate guidance and knowledgeable instruction. 

Even by sharing our social media posts, encouraging a friend to join us, offering words of support or sending positive vibes our way, know that we appreciate every thing you are able to do. We are eagerly looking forward to the day we can gather together again in the hot room.

Please call or email me if you have any questions or comments on how we can improve Sterling Hot Yoga & Wellness!

Let’s Stay Together at a Safe Distance! Practice With Us Via Livestream Classes

By Announcement

We’ve got to keep a safe social distance from each other, but we’re not going to let that stop you from practicing with us.

We would love to “see” you in class, and thanks to technology, we can! You can also stay connected to your favorite Sterling Hot Yoga & Wellness teachers during this time by joining our livestream classes!

ALL classes on our schedule can be practiced from your home, so even though we’re apart, we can be connected energetically.

Follow these steps so we can stay together and you can maintain your practice:

  1. Sign in to your account on Mind Body. Please note that you may have to reset your password. (Contact us if you need help.)  
  2. Book your class. You’ll receive an email confirmation from FitGrid Live that you’ve registered. 
  3. Watch your email for follow-up information, also from FitGrid Live, with a Zoom link to access the class if you choose.
  4. If you don’t see these emails, check the email address associated with your Mind Body account. (You can always update your email address in Mind Body.) Also check to be sure that you’ve opted in to receive all the email types under Subscriptions in the Contact tab in your Mind Body profile. If you still have issues, please email david@shywmobile.com or message us on Facebook.
  5. Log in to Zoom any time within the 30-minute window before the class starts. Be on time! You won’t be able to join a streaming class after it starts.
  6. Have a great class!

How to Prepare for Your Livestream Classes

Please be mindful that practicing at home will be much different from practicing at the studio. You’ll see and feel the difference! But keep these tips in mind so you get the most benefit despite this significant difference.

  1. If possible, practice in front of a mirror. It will help with your alignment and focus just like it does in the hot room!
  2. You can also use a heater if it’s available.
  3. Wear a long-sleeved shirt and leggings, as these will help you generate more body heat as well.
  4. Before class begins, do a one-minute plank to fire up all of the muscles in your body and build even more heat to warm you up for class!
  5. Without the heat, you will not be able to access the depth of each pose that you’re used to. That’s OK! This is a great opportunity to pay more attention to your alignment, your breath and your stillness.

Remember that even if you are practicing alone for the time being, we are still all in this together! Thank you for your presence (even virtually) that helps make Sterling Hot Yoga & Wellness the special place and community that it is!

Sterling Spring Challenge Extended Through the End of April

By Announcement

When we kicked off our 30-Day Spring Into Transformation Challenge, we had no idea what exactly type of change our world was in for.

But as with any unknown, we’re taking this as an opportunity to be flexible, to be pushed out of our comfort zones and to ultimately grow. 

We’re doing everything we can to help you achieve your challenge goals despite the sweeping disruptions.

All of our classes are available for livestream access online to help you maintain your practice at a safe social distance, and we’re extending our challenge until April 30. 

Good luck with your challenge! We’re cheering you on virtually!
