My joints were getting stiff as I am on my feet for at least 8 hours a day at work.
As my feet land on the floor in the morning all 30 joints in my feet ached. My joints were stiff from hips down until I started moving.
I'd been fairly flexible most of my life and since I was standing a lot and I wasn't practising pilates or yoga anymore I needed an alternative. I wanted to be obedient to God's word "You shall have no other gods before Me" Exodus 20:3 so I stopped practising yoga and pilates for a number of years now.
A good friend had told me about PraiseMoves a couple of years ago.
As we entered the new year I decided it was time to say goodbye to sore joints, get moving and flexible again.
God reminded me about PraiseMoves.
I searched Youtube and only found some short videos to try.
Since they were short and I enjoyed the benefits I did them almost every day for 15 minutes and my body as well as my spirit felt so uplifted.
I loved it so much I decided to train as a PraiseMoves instructor.
I began my PraiseMoves journey at the beginning of 2020. I also did a fast which I had never done before. This was also transformational as well introducing the amount of water I drank helped me to realise that the type of water and amount made a big impact on my body at a cellular level.
"For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s"
1 Corinthians 6:20
PraiseMoves has been a beautiful way for me to meditate on Scripture verses from the bible while I stretch.
As we meditate on God’s Word it changes us
“My son, give attention to my words;
Incline your ear to my sayings.
Do not let them depart from your eyes;
Keep them in the midst of your heart;
For they are life to those who find them,
And health to all their flesh.”
Health = medicine in Hebrew
