PraiseMoves is the Christian Alternative to Yoga! Turn your workout into worship. Charlaine is the Certified PraiseMoves Instructor for this class.
Founder, Laurette Willis, has redeemed yoga poses, poses meant to be offerings to Hindu gods and a pathway to Buddhist enlightenment, by transforming them into PraiseMoves postures which bring glory and honor to God. The benefits are better balance and coordination, greater flexibility, increased strength, stress reduction, and weight loss. Although these postures may look like yoga, they have been scrutinized to remove the Eastern religious symbolism. Some look the same while others look different. The greatest difference is the worship aspect with a Bible verse attached to each posture. We can meditate (i.e. reflect upon) the Scripture passage while coaxing our bodies to greater flexibility and strength. This is NOT Christian Yoga! See what Laurette Willis has to say. Live classes only.
Come workout with Sensei Charlaine Martin in this Christian alternative for Tai Chi with gentle Christian instrumental music! Develop better posture, breath control, flexibility, endurance, and concentration -- with no eastern religous mediation!). Charlaine developed this graceful, non-contact martial arts system & exercise form based on soft styles from Okinawan Shorinji and American Stratiotia Christou as well as other exercise forms with similar assets. Set with the
tone of Christian contemplation of Scripture, you will learn basic moves that pull together in flowing sequences.
Sensei Charlaine Martin holds a 2nd dan Black Belt in Okinawan Shorinji and a 3rd Dan in American Stratiotia Christou, which she co-founded with her late husband, Pastor Sensei Donald Engelhardt, with the same belt ranks. Instructor training and certification will eventually be offered, but not available at this time.
