21-Day Healthy Habits Challenge Starts on Wednesday

By Events

How is your year going so far? If you need motivation to stick with your healthy habits or to develop some, we’re here to help!

In March, we’re encouraging you to set healthy habits with our 2022 Healthy Habits Challenge! Since it takes about three weeks to form a habit, the challenge is to take 21 classes in 30 days and get your year off to a healthy start!

Everyone who completes the challenge will be entered to win a drawing for these prizes: a one-hour private lesson with the teacher of your choice; gift cards to local restaurants; Sterling gift cards and more!

Of course everyone who completes the challenge will receive a special T-shirt and have the opportunity to sign the challenge wall.

The Healthy Habits Challenge begins Wednesday, March 3, 2022 and ends Thursday, March 31, 2022.

Sign-up cards for the Healthy Habits Challenge will be available this week!

Virtual Classes Phased Out in March, Replaced With On-Demand Options

By Announcement

Due to decreased demand, we have been slowly phasing out our virtual class options.

Virtual classes have been a great asset to the studio during the height of the pandemic, but we feel they have served their purpose.

Beginning in March, virtual classes will no longer be offered. 

However, archived recordings of past live streaming classes will be available through March 31.

We will be working on creating an on-demand class option so you can still practice with us while traveling or if your scheduled doesn’t allow you to make it to the studio in time.

Stay tuned!

How We’re Getting Into the Spirit of Halloween at Sterling!

By Events
We’re excited about the month of October at Sterling, and with so many fun classes we’re planning, we hope you will be too! 
 
Most of them are inspired by Halloween, and who wouldn’t want more chances to celebrate that?
 
Don’t forget that the 30-Day Fall Challenge begins Friday, Oct. 1 and ends Sunday, Oct. 31. We’re encouraging everyone to practice 30 classes during that time, and we think these creative options will definitely inspire you to participate!
Sunday, Oct. 3 – 4:30 PM
Wheel Yin Yoga 
Experience your yin yoga practice in a new way! Deepen your backbends, open your shoulders, massage your spine and more by incorporating a yoga wheel. Wheels will be available for purchase or rent at the studio, or you are welcome to bring your own if you have one.
Monday, Oct. 18 – 7 PM
Spooky Vinyasa Flow
Experience a challenging vinyasa flow with a creative take to make it spooky! Some familiar posture names may be changed to help get you in the mood for Halloween. Join Bridget to get into the spirit of the season and have even more fun flowing!
Tuesday, Oct. 19 – 5:30 PM
’80s-Themed Inferno Hot Pilates
Break out your neon, jellies, leg warmers and big hair, and get ready to sweat to the fabulous tunes of the ‘80s! We’re encouraging everyone to dress up for this one, and since Halloween is coming up, there’s no better time to get in costume. Expect to have even more fun than usual!
Thursday, Oct. 28 – 7 PM

You think you know the Original Hot 60, but not in this class! Will you do one set or two? What postures will you flow through? We can’t tell! Just know that this will be a great challenge for your body and your mind, and if you like knowing what’s next, it may be a little scary too!
Saturday, Oct. 30 – Noon
Platinum Plus
Maybe it’s a little scary to push yourself out of your comfort zone, but you and your practice will be better for it! Platinum Plus is a 75-minute intermediate-level original hot yoga class that is designed to do just that. Work toward advancing your practice with us! $10 drop-in. 
We encourage you to register in advance for these classes because we do expect there will be even more interest in them! You can book classes through Mind Body, and if you have any questions, please let us know!

NEW! Wheel Yin Yoga Class on Sunday, Oct. 3 at 4:30 PM

By Events
Have you ever used a yoga wheel?
 
It’s a great prop to help massage the spine, assist in deep backbends and aid in flexibility, and we’re introducing them at Sterling!
 
Join Michelle on Sunday, Oct. 3 at 4:30 p.m. for a yin yoga class that will incorporate yoga wheels. 
 
We’ll have wheels available at the studio for sale or rent, or you can bring your own. 
 
We also encourage you to bring a thick towel or thin blanket if you do participate.
 
Wheels are commonly associated with deepening backbends and assisting in reducing tightness in the chest and shoulders. 
 
But this class will also make use of the wheel in forward folds and hip-opening poses. 
 
Sign up here in advance so you will have access to a wheel and to reserve your spot. Class size is limited! 
 
This is the first of what we hope are even more wheel yoga classes, so we hope you can join us and let us know what you think!
