Free Monthly "Taste of PraiseMoves Classes" beginning Thursday, July 16 at 8:00 PM Eastern time... ...Starting with our NEWEST Certification, L.I.F.T. (Laughter In Fitness Training). Continuing every third Thursday of each month, with a different type of class each time.

Laughter?!!! Yes, laughter! 🤣
We could all use more Laughter and JOY about now, wouldn't you agree?

“If the earth is fit for laughter then surely heaven is filled with it. Heaven is the birthplace of laughter.” ~ Martin Luther (1483 – 1546), known as the "father" of the Protestant faith.

"I slept on Saturday night like a baby. I haven't felt that good in years. I was pain-free. God showed me that L.I.F.T. is my new pain strategy for back pain. Hallelujah! God is so good!" --Christine Ross

A Christian Alternative to Yoga

Our mission is to encourage Christian believers to live a physically AND spiritually healthy lifestyle, while striving to share our faith in Christ with the world. ~ 1 Cor. 6:20

PraiseMoves involves deep stretching, gentle movements, diaphragmatic breathing, and a strong emphasis on God's Word, the Bible. Each PraiseMoves posture has a corresponding scripture to focus on. PraiseMoves promotes weight loss, stress relief, flexibility, strength, and balance. Mira! is Christian dance fitness with a Latin beat! It has been referred to as the Christian alternative to Zumba.

FAITH INTEGRATED TRAINING

Hello everyone!

I know you've already received a zillion messages about the Coronavirus and how it's affecting various businesses. But here's one more!

All local schools, park district facilities, as well as the YMCA where I teach weekly classes, are closing down for two weeks until March 30th (at least). And while the churches where I teach PraiseMoves/Mira and CaraMayan are not cancelling their services, my family has determined that it's best for us to also observe the "social distancing" that the CDC is recommending.

This means that all live classes for the next two weeks will be cancelled.

HOWEVER, as an alternative, I will be moving all classes ONLINE for the week of 3/16. I have set up the registration links for the classes on my website: https://8203faithintegratedtraining.yondo.com/ Just click on the "PraiseMoves/Mira Class" or "CaraMayan" logo to sign up for classes that normally would be in-person. Let me know if you have any trouble.

ADDITIONALLY, all classes will be cancelled the week of 3/23 - this is due to my family hoping to travel to AL for Spring Break to see family. If we end up not traveling, I will let you know if there may be more online classes to choose from that week.

I hope you will understand. I want everyone to be safe and healthy.

Love in Christ,
Jessica
