SoulCore in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia
SoulCore is an invitation to integrate body & soul in prayer, fully orienting the heart & mind toward Christ, while discovering the beauty of the Rosary
What is SoulCore?
SoulCore integrates basic, functional and simple movements, including stretching, flexibility and core strengthening, with the beautiful prayers of the Rosary. This Marian prayer apostolate invites participants to nourish body, mind and soul in order to encourage deeper reflection and connection to Christ through the mysteries and particularly the virtues connected to each mystery.
SoulCore is a sensory experience. It incorporates music, candlelight, Sacred Scripture, reflections and movement. This provides a gentle path to grow in virtue and interior peace.
A movement all its own, SoulCore began from a simple “yes” to an inspiration of the Holy Spirit. SoulCore is founded in monotheism, one true God and is based in Christian meditation, which is always focused on the life of Jesus Christ.
SoulCore is about “filling” the mind & soul specifically with the life, virtues and Word of Christ. SoulCore is not affiliated with any other exercise discipline. It is not yoga, nor are yoga poses or sanskrit referenced at any time.
Our Lady’s desire is always to lead us closer to Her son Jesus. As a Marian prayer apostolate, SoulCore imitates Her in striving to draw others closer to Christ through deeper reflection on His life and virtues in the Rosary. Anything that could potentially lead us away from Christ is counter to our mission.
