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!

Platinum Plus Is Back at Sterling on Saturday, March 28 at Noon

By Events

Have you been missing Platinum Plus? It’s back on this schedule this month at Sterling on March 28 at noon.

Platinum Plus is our 75-minute take on the intermediate hot yoga series, and it combines postures you would practice in the 26/2 of the beginner’s sequence, intermediate Ghosh postures and others similar to vinyasa or yin.

Don’t be intimidated by the word “intermediate.” Every pose has steps you work on as you progress. We do recommend that you have practiced the 26/2 sequence for a minimum of 10 classes before taking this one. 

This class is offered for a $10 drop-in rate. Reserve your spot here!
