New Sterling Classes to Be Added!

By Announcement
new yoga class schedule

We are adding a few new offerings to the Sterling lineup! We encourage you to try each one and incorporate these classes into your practice. Keep your eye on the schedule—new class times may change and evolve in order to encourage best attendance.

Rest-Air-Ation: a 30-minute class focused on conscious breathing. This particular breath class is based on a Kundalini sequence designed to open the heart, provide a calming effect, eliminate unnecessary thoughts and feelings, and be more present. Rest-Air-Ation will be offered initially on Friday after the 9:30 am class and on Saturday after the 9:30 am class. As it grows, more classes will be added.

Melting Pot Meditation: In foundries, a melting pot is a metal, clay, or ceramic vessel in which metal is melted. At Sterling, we offer a class of guided meditation in order to allow your body to melt away your fears, concerns and trifling thoughts. Melting Pot Meditation will be led a few times a month by a variety of individuals skilled in the practice of mindful thinking and rumination. Betsey Grady led a very popular guided meditation a few months ago, and she will be back again on February 24. We will offer two melting pots in March. Check the schedule for this periodic offering so you don’t miss it!

Hot Bronze Flow: The Sanskrit word “Vinyasa” refers to a transition between two different positions, so the emphasis is on the flow from one posture to the next. Vinyasa also means one breath, one movement. If you practice Iron Hour, you will be familiar with some of the postures in Hot Bronze Flow, but there will be many more that will challenge your core, your balance and your mind. Brooke Nisbet will be leading Hot Bronze Flow on Tuesdays at 6:15pm. You’re going to love her!

One of the most visible ways to do that is to wear one of our new pink Sterling T-shirts!

Designed specifically for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, these shirts share the simple—but powerful—message of “Heat. Health. Hope.”

Shirts are available as pink crew necks for men or pink V-necks or hot pink tanks for women. Each style is $20 (including tax).

SHY Mobile Sends Teddy Off With a Great Big Camel!

By Announcement

Teddy and Lucille, November 2011

It seems like a long time ago now when we all came together to help send Teddy to Teacher Training.

Here’s a photo of Teddy and me at the Hollywood sign taken in November 2011 when Teddy was at training.

Since then, Teddy has become a client-favorite on the podium. He’s even gotten a few Best Yoga Teacher Nappie Awards to prove it!

We are sad to say that Teddy’s last class at Sterling Hot Yoga Mobile was Thursday, August 13.

But the good news is that he promises to be back now and again when he’s in town. Meanwhile, Teddy will be spending the majority of his time with Nicole at Bikram Yoga Pensacola.

Thank you to each of you who showed up to send Teddy off with your best wishes, gratitude and love for his time and instruction here with us in Mobile.

You all definitely gave Teddy a proper adieu. We hear his infamous eternal camel spanned three sets!

Thank you, Teddy, for all your hard work with us all at Sterling Hot Yoga. You (but maybe not your camel) will be missed.

May the force be with you!

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!
