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.
Many “mind, body, and soul” workouts attempt to benefit the mind simply through relaxation. At Pietra Fitness, however, we strive to both calm and strengthen the mind.
In addition to increased flexibility, the exercises utilized in Pietra Fitness classes are designed to improve muscular strength, range of motion, posture, and stability. We hope you leave each class feeling relaxed, refreshed, rejuvenated, and restored.

Fr. Ezra Sullivan, O.P., addresses the topic of Christians and yoga in this presentation to a group of parishioners in Cincinnati, OH. He presents the reasons some Christians practice yoga, as well as objections to practicing yoga. Fr. Ezra has done his research, and he finishes his talk with clear conclusions based on Catholic teachings. While the video is lengthy, it is informative and entertaining… well worth watching!
