Pietra Fitness

a retreat for body and soul

Pietra (meaning “rock” in Italian) is a word that reminds us of the importance of a solid foundation when building anything that is to have strength, stability, and longevity.  At Pietra Fitness, our “whole person” workouts are built upon this concept.  We utilize physical exercise to promote core strength as a solid physical foundation for the rest of the body.  For the soul, our workouts include prayer and meditations built upon the strongest of foundations: the rock of Christ and His Church.  This powerful combination truly benefits the entire human person – restoring harmony and wholeness to both body and soul.

Pietra Fitness is not “Christian yoga” or “Catholic yoga.”  Most Hindu and Christian philosophers would agree that “Christian Yoga” is an oxymoron because Christianity (coming from Christ) and yoga (based in Hinduism) have fundamental differences in theology and philosophy.   The practice of yoga as such inherently incorporates Hindu spirituality, therefore an exercise program cannot truly be both yoga and Christian.  Pietra Fitness seeks to provide some insight into why this is true, both in general terms and through specific examples.
