Originally from Toulouse, France, Muriel now calls Pensacola, Florida, home, where she nurtures well-being through her private massage practice. Her background in running and yoga ignited her fascination with the human body and its potential. This passion led her to yoga teaching and, in 2009, she discovered Thai Massage while undergoing her first yoga teacher training.

Inspired by the profound connection between body and mind, and its impact on holistic well-being, Muriel dedicated herself to refining her skills. She honed her expertise in Thai bodywork through the Vedic Conservatory and for the past 13 years under the guidance and the mentoring from David Roma, LMT, RomaThaiYoga. Her dedication to continuous learning saw her travel all over the United States and internationally, including studying at the Sunshine Massage School in Chiang Mai, Thailand, in 2013.

Muriel’s commitment extends beyond personal growth. In 2019, she returned to Thailand to assist with a Thai intensive retreat, sharing her knowledge and supporting others. Throughout 2023 and early 2024, she further deepened her practice through immersive experiences like assisting her teacher David and studying Osteo Thai & Dynamic Thai massage with Flo Bisogno.

This summer, Muriel will delve deeper into Osteo Thai in France, learning from internationally acclaimed teacher Arno L Hermitte. Additionally, she holds the designation of an approved Florida State Board of Massage Therapy Instructor.

Michelle Wilson finds the variety of class offerings appealing

By News

Michelle Wilson knew after her first class at Sterling that she had found something that was exactly what she had been trying to find. “I was thrilled, an hour in the heat and I realized I was moving and stretching muscles I hadn’t thought about moving in years.”

Michelle had tried a few studios starting in 2018, but about a year ago some friends gifted her with a three month membership to Sterling. The mix of different class styles and an accommodating and consistent weekly class schedule were appealing and made it easy to get to the studio for classes.

After a short time, she realized that yoga and Pilates provide a great workout for any level of fitness. “As long as you keep trying, you get better. Even if you can never touch your head to your feet, you will feel better and more flexible with every class you take.”

“This is a wonderful studio. Thank you to all the great instructors who make every class energizing and enthusiastic. I know this isn’t easy, but you all make it look that way.”

Michelle knows that her Sterling practice will give her results that go beyond increased flexibility. She has improved her sleep habits. An inclination for snoring has all but disappeared, something that her husband certainly appreciates!

Weatherby George finds better health from her very first class

By News

Weatherby George had never taken a yoga class before joining Sterling only two months ago. In those eight weeks, she has noticed many improvements to her physical and mental well-being. She also signed up for the Summer Bingo Challenge right after joining AND completed the game!

While her first class was physically challenging, it left Weatherby curious to further explore how yoga and Pilates can improve flexibility, create more energy and reduce stress. “I’ve always thought of myself as a worrier, and did not think there was any changing that. But in just a few short weeks, I am noticing a calmer mind. I’m becoming comfortable with the uncomfortable!”

“I wanted to get healthier and form a consistent workout routine. The convenient location and variety of classes and times were important in my decision when I was looking for studio.”

Weatherby keeps coming back because of the encouraging instruction and welcoming community she receives. We’ve all experienced the feeling that the hardest part of practicing is showing up for class. “Just commit to making it happen and I’m sure you will find it to be a very enjoyable experience!”

Amy Weaver Surprises Herself, Inspires Everyone

By Testimonial

Amy Weaver was looking to improve strength, balance and flexibility, like most people seeking yoga. But as a kidney and pancreas transplant recipient who is also blind, perhaps no one was more surprised by her progress than Amy herself.

“Being blind with a kidney and pancreas transplant, and having some serious old fractures with misaligned healing, I was not sure that I could successfully do yoga,” she said, “but with the staff’s guidance and encouragement I have progressed further than I ever thought possible.”

Amy has been practicing at Sterling Hot Yoga & Wellness for three months, but “very sporadically” between 2002 and 2013, including a class called WarriorLess at The Lotus Seed.

A caring friend encouraged her to try yoga to improve her mobility and state of mind, but she returned to Sterling because she had visited before with previous ownership and an old friend who is a yoga instructor in Fairhope recommended it.

With consistent practice, Amy says she has experienced several changes: “less back pain, stronger on my feet, my balance is improving, I am more flexible and my mental status is better.”

That’s part of the reason she keeps showing up on your mat. “I keep coming back because I feel better mentally and physically, and the staff is so friendly and helpful,” she said. “One gets the feeling that they genuinely care about you. The staff and the other students feel like friends.”

Amy uses the assistance of a staff member, the ballet barre and sometimes the wall, but she is an inspiration to everyone at Sterling because of her determination and dedication.

“I was encouraged to keep trying, I liked the way that I felt and was excited about coming back,” she said of her first class. “I have learned that I can be more disciplined than I thought.”

She credits David, the owner, and the Sterling instructors with the progress she has made. “I could not have made it at any other studio,” she said.

Amy surprised herself, and she believes first-timers can experience the same thing. 

“Give it a try and you will like it, you will enjoy it,” she said, “and you will surprise yourself at what you can accomplish.”
