Exercise While Praying the Rosary
SoulCore, a contemporary one hour core workout that pairs exercise with prayers of the rosary, is offered at St. Vincent’s each Monday and Wednesday morning, beginning at 7:50 a.m., in Kellaghan Hall. The program consists of core strengthening, stretching and isometric exercises combined with candlelight, music, reflections and movement to nourish the body, mind and soul, as well as encourage deeper meditation on the mysteries and virtues of the rosary.
Participants begin with some basic stretches to warm up the body and recite the Apostle’s Creed. Push-ups are done throughout each of the Our Father’s. The movements vary for each of the Hail Mary’s and a stretching position of surrender brings them to each Glory Be. Each Mystery begins with a scripture verse and a reflection, offering a time of rest. The end result is a feeling of relaxation, strength and renewal of body, mind and soul.
There is no cost but donations are accepted. Participants will need to bring a floor mat and optional hand weights. For more information contact the Office of Family Life Services at 561-665-8566 or via e-mail at [email protected]. An informational video is also available at www.SoulCore.com.
