Additional Certifications Available


These trainings 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 (8AM-12noon). 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 Laurette Willis, PraiseMoves and MIRA! founder (1:00 – 6:00 PM). 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 2012 PraiseMoves National Conference, MIRA! was a big hit among the CPIs and is fast becoming a popular class for our first group of CMIs (Certified MIRA! Instructors). Enables you to include CMI as one of your certifications. There is a separate forum for CMIs and a vibrant community of sharing new dances, songs, fitness routines and helpful tips. See videos here:

Your Training Includes

  • MIRA! or PraiseMoves Gold Instructor Manual
