Power PraiseMoves DVD: The Christian Alternative to Yoga
Released December 1, 2009
About Power PraiseMoves:
Thousands of women have found a faith-building Christian alternative to yoga in Laurette Willis’s previous DVDs, PraiseMoves™ and 20-Minute PraiseMoves™. Now, the Power PraiseMoves™ DVD adds a new dimension to Laurette’s exercise program, a dimension that will attract those who
- are ready to take their PraiseMoves® workout to a new level
- are looking for a physically challenging Christian alternative to yoga
- are specifically interested in a flowing, high-energy workout without the spiritual dangers of “power yoga.”
A 40-minute power workout and a longer 50-minute workout are enhanced by shorter segments for warm-up and for abs strengthening and toning—more than 120 minutes total—and a bonus booklet features photos and descriptions of PraiseMoves postures.
Exercise enthusiasts will be delighted as they increase their flexibility, lose weight, ease stress, and nurture their prayer life and Scripture knowledge. A superb source of whole-person health and rejuvenation for believers’ daily walk with God.
I was very excited about this DVD when I heard about it. I love yoga, but have yet to find the perfect yoga DVD workout for me. Some workouts I’ve tried I haven’t liked the instructor, others went too fast for me, assuming I knew what I was doing. But Power PraiseMoves is a yoga workout DVD I really like!
There are slower workouts for beginners and maybe people who are injured and need to move into the stretches slowly, then there is the power workout which is the stretches and positions in faster succession, and then the more ab-focused workout.
Be warned that this DVD isn’t as stylized as some workout DVDs – there aren’t a lot of fake smiles and girls with perfect bodies. The instructor is Laurette Willis, and she looks like any normal-looking (lol) woman, someone you can relate to. She is easy to follow and I loved that she gives you scripture verses to meditate on while doing the stretches. I’m always up for new opportunities to learn scripture!
I’m not really worried about the spiritual aspect of regular yoga for myself, but I did enjoy this “alternative” and will definitely be enjoying it in the future when I want to stretch and relax. I recommend the Power PraiseMoves DVD for anyone who enjoys a relaxing or challenging yoga workout and Christians who want something different from traditional yoga workouts. :-)
