MIRA!, PraiseMoves Gold, PraiseKicks & PraiseWAVES Training

Additional Certifications Available


These certifications are usually both held the same day, so CPIs (Certified PraiseMoves Instructors) can receive both certifications the same day if they would like to do so. One must be a CPI in order to take either of these certifications. Online or *live* certifications are available to become a Certified PraiseMoves Instructor. See HERE for details and dates.

1. PraiseMoves Gold Certification – with NolaJeanne Baird, CPIT (Available Online). Learn everything you need to know in order to teach modifications and variations of PraiseMoves postures and Scripture Sequences to the growing senior/elder population, as well as for those with limited mobility.

Understand their particular needs and concerns. NolaJeanne has taught seniors and those with physical limitations in a variety of settings and has authored most of the modifications for PraiseMoves postures. Enables you to include CPGI (Certified PraiseMoves Gold Instructor) as one of your certifications.

2. MIRA! Certification – with Dr. Laurette Willis, PraiseMoves and MIRA! founder (Available Online). MIRA! is “Christian Fitness with a Latin Beat!” — an energetic (and modest) Latin dance workout with the Word. “MIRA! is the Christian alternative to Zumba!”-David Warren Ingles, Oasis Network

First introduced at the PraiseMoves International Conference, MIRA! has been a big hit among the CPIs and their students, and is fast becoming a very popular class around the world. Certified MIRA Instructors (CMIs) comprise a vibrant community who shares new dances, songs, fitness routines, and helpful tips.

Here Dr. Laurette leads you in a super FUN MIRA! workout! She also shares the remarkable way the Lord gave her the idea for MIRA! dance fitness.
