PIETRA FITNESS is a unique ‘whole-person' fitness program that integrates physical exercise with Christian prayer while drawing upon the rich and timeless traditions of the Catholic Church. Bodily prayer, sacred art, sacred music, and Christian meditation are woven into the stretching and strengthening workouts so that in only one hour, you feel calmer, stronger, refreshed, and renewed.
"Do you not know that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?" -1 Cor. 3:16
While there are 4 levels in Pietra Fitness, this LEVEL 1 workout revitalizes your body and soul with a combination of floor work, standing exercises, and balancing postures. The transitions between floor and mat-work are quicker and more frequent than in Gentle workouts, and strengthening postures are held for longer periods of time. Level 1 classes are designed to leave you feeling strong, relaxed, and invigorated. The featured meditation calls to mind the healing gift of God's great MERCY.
