SoulCore is a new form of exercise that is gaining momentum across the country. SoulCore was founded by two Catholic women in Indiannapolis, Indiana, Deanne Miller and Colleen Scariano. This is a new path to stillness that could change your life, your waistline and your whole world.
SoulCore combines praying the rosary with exercises that help with core strengthening, stretching, and functional movement. It is not affiliated with any other exercise discipline. It is not yoga, nor are yoga poses or Sanskrit referenced at any time. With prayer being the most essential part of the practice, the exercises are simply an invitation to further deepen the prayer experience as well as strengthen the body.
The practice also incorporates a path to growth in virtue and interior peace through meditations and deep reflections on the life of Christ. “The intention is that you are orienting yourself the entire time to Christ as you are physically moving,” says founder Deanne. SoulCore is for everyone, regardless of ability or fitness level. A typical SoulCore Rosary is approximately 50-55 minutes in length.
