Pietra Fitness Classes
Pietra Fitness is a unique whole-person fitness program that integrates physical exercise with Christian prayer and meditation. Regardless of the difficulty level you choose, you will feel calmer, stronger, refreshed, and renewed with each class.
If you’re looking to relieve stress and anxiety, these classes are for you.
Incorporating both floor work and standing exercises with slow transitions, the peaceful pace and movements of these workouts gently promote strength, flexibility, and improved balance.
These calm and relaxing classes are appropriate for a wide range of ages and abilities, including seniors and those with chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia.
Gentle classes are also a great way to start your day, wind down at night, or complement your normal workouts.
Intermediate classes will revitalize your body and soul.
Building upon the basic movements in Gentle classes, these classes have a combination of floor work, standing exercises, and balancing postures.
Transitions are quicker and more frequent, and strengthening postures are held for longer periods of time.
When you are done, you will feel strong, relaxed, and invigorated.
Go beyond the fundamentals and promote muscle strength and control.
Advanced classes focus on building endurance and refining the fundamental postures introduced in Gentle and Intermediate classes.
With challenging sequences and strong transitions, Advanced classes are best to try after you are comfortable with Intermediate workouts.
At this stage, you'll maximize muscle strength as well as flexibility, balance, and endurance.
Pregnancy is a special, spiritual, and sometimes emotional time for a mother-to-be. The Prenatal Pietra Fitness classes are here to help assist expectant mamas through their prenatal journey.
Prenatal: Our prenatal classes can assist expectant moms in growing comfortable in their changing bodies and help to improve their nervous system and calm their minds. The classes aid in building stamina and strength, balancing changing hormones, and reducing stress.
Special attention is given to the core and pelvic floor, which will help prepare the mom for labor and delivery. By keeping fit throughout pregnancy, a mother will likely have an easier time recovering after delivery. The best part is the prayers and Scriptures will nurture the soul.
Pregnancy is a special, spiritual, and sometimes emotional time for a mother-to-be. The Postnatal Pietra Fitness classes are here to help assist new mamas through their postnatal journey.
Postnatal: It is natural for new moms to want to regain their pre-pregnancy fitness and body shape quickly, but it is essential to remember that their body has been changing gradually for nine months and has been through the stress of labor and delivery. Even when given clearance to exercise – usually 6-8
weeks after delivery, their body is still healing and recovering, and doing too much too soon can lead to long-term complications.
Our postnatal classes are designed to help postpartum women realign the spine, strengthen the back, abs, and pelvic muscles, and help with relaxation, stress management, and spiritual and emotional well-being.
Through gentle movements, you'll gain strength, flexibility, and stability.
As the name suggests, this class is practiced sitting in a chair or standing while using a chair for support.
If traditional classes with floor mats are uncomfortable for you because of age, instability, or other limitations, this workout is perfect for you.
Check with your local instructor to find out if they offer chair classes, or try the classes on the online studio.
