September is recognized as National Yoga Month, and the 5th Annual Mobile/Baldwin Yoga Week will be celebrated this month as well.
Sterling Hot Yoga is participating in several activities related to both!
To commemorate this occasion, our local edition of Natural Awakenings magazine reached out to the Mobile/Baldwin yoga community for a photo shoot.
September’s issue highlights some of the amazing mental and physical benefits that yoga has to offer.
If you’ve seen the magazine, then you might have recognized some of your favorite Sterling yogis featured in the September issue, including Sprite on the front cover! Click the photo above to see the entire issue, as well as other photos from the shoot taken by local photographer Brock Larsen.
Brock chose Brookley Aeroplex in Mobile for the site of the shoot largely because of the “incredible transformation process that it’s currently undergoing,” he told Natural Awakenings. “Rather than destroying the beautiful old buildings and putting in new, Mobile Airport Authority Is honoring its history through renovation. I think this is very much in line with yoga philosophy–improving is great, but it’s just as important to be happy where you are now.”
Hopefully, we can inspire people to give hot yoga a try this month!
Yoga Life Fair
On Saturday, September 19, Sterling will be part of the Yoga Life Fair! Starting at 2:30 p.m., at the Fairhope Pier Park, join us for healthy refreshments, live music and a full schedule of yoga classes from beginner to advanced, chair yoga, aerial yoga, meditation, paddleboard yoga and more!
Sterling will have a table at the event and Anna will lead a hot (in all sense of the word) class! Be a part of it! For more details, visit www.YogaLifeFair.com or find the Yoga Life Fair page on Facebook.
Yoga Month Food Drive
Have a friend who’s interested in coming to Sterling? Make it a win/win!
As part of yoga month celebrations, from Sept. 19 – 26, donate five pieces of canned or dry food (Thanksgiving type) in exchange for a free class!
All donations will go to the Bay Area Food Bank to help families in the central Gulf Coast enjoy a healthy and fruitful Thanksgiving holiday! And if you don’t have someone who wants to come that week, bring in some canned food yourself and get a free class card to hand out to an interested yogi in the future!
