May Brings Workshops, Special Classes

Announcement | May 05, 2017

SpriteArmBalanceSterlingHotYogaManja Podratz is now leading a 60-minute vinyasa slow flow class on Wednesday mornings at 8 a.m. Manja’s style of vinyasa yoga is offered in a non-heated room with a focus on postures that build strength, promote balance and increase flexibility in flow with the breath.

She received her 200-hour teacher training in 2014/2015 and also has extensive knowledge of hatha and kundalini yoga. This Wednesday morning class is currently planned for May and June, and is offered for a donation of $10.

On Saturday, May 20 at Noon, make plans to attend our Platinum Plus class led by Michelle. This 75-minute practice incorporates the 26 postures of our 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 one-time class is offered for a donation of $10, and may be added more frequently depending on response.

Finally, Sprite will be leading a workshop on Saturday, May 27 at Noon. “Finding Balance” will be a 90-minute session that will teach students arm-balancing techniques that will complement students’ Hot Bronze Flow practice and teach a few new techniques as well.

Balancing poses help connect with the present moment by requiring constant focus. Adding the challenge of balancing on the hands or arms instead of the feet requires an even greater degree of mental focus. Arm balances can also help to increase feelings of self-confidence, courage and inner strength. “Finding Balance” is offered for a donation of $10.

Alabama-Made Ginger Water to Take ROOT at Sterling

Announcement | Apr 08, 2017

Alabama-Made ROOT Ginger WaterWe are excited to offer a new refreshing and healing beverage at Sterling beginning Monday, April 10. Created by one of our own yogis, Anna Luce, ROOT is ginger water that can be enjoyed alone or as an addition to teas, mocktails or cocktails.

Ginger packs proven health benefits, everything from supporting digestion, immunity and healthy skin to reducing inflammation and nausea. It reduces muscle pain and soreness, it lowers cholesterol and blood sugar levels, and it offers potassium and vitamins A, C, E and B-complex!

Start sipping on all of these great benefits the next time you visit the studio. Take Root will be available at Sterling for $3.95 for a 12 oz. bottle.

Kangen Makes Water Healthy!

News | Apr 05, 2017

Kangen Water HealthyAs yogis, we know the importance of proper hydration before and after a rewarding class in the hot room.

But the key to receiving maximum benefit from water consumption really is the quality of the water.

Here are some more great reasons to consume Kangen water on a daily basis:

– 9.5 pH, highly alkaline water, providing an antioxidant boost, helping to fight off free radicals that can lead to cancer, diabetes and heart disease

– Can help to speed up weight loss, especially with a consistent exercise program, like that offered at Sterling Hot Yoga!

– Helps to balance out the effects of an overly acidic diet

– Makes hydrogen more biologically available to the body

– Rich in minerals, purged of impurities

– Tastes great!

According to Sterling member and Kangen water expert A.J. Krause, “If you make it a goal to drink one gallon of Kangen water a day in your for the next month, you will see changes in your appearance, your performance and your overall health that will convince you that good alkaline water really does make a difference.”

Look for even more testimonials in the next few weeks from other Sterling members who have seen the positive results from drinking Kangen water.

Monthly unlimited supply is only $20; that’s 66 cents a day! Isn’t that worth a try to experience Kangen water yourself?
