a journey to wholeness
Hello! My name is Avery and I am the founder of Pilgrim Strength. Welcome! I am thrilled you are here. I am still in the beginning stages of discerning what exactly this is going to be, but kept hearing a strong call from God to start with what I got! I have just completed my Foundations 1 Pietra Fitness certification and will primarily be offering classes both virtual and in person. All are welcome! To learn more about Pietra Fitness, click here!
I am a native west Texan and came out to Colorado back in 2007 for college. 'Sko Buffs! I lived in CO for 11 years before God called my husband and me to venture out east. We lived in Pittsburgh for 3 years and fell in love with the Steel City where our first daughter was born. In a surprising twist, God called us back to the Rockies where we are patiently and eagerly awaiting the arrival of our second child!
I am a cradle Catholic who, like most angsty teens, rebelled for a time before falling back in love with the Church. Somewhere in my journey I anchored to the idea of a pilgrim and realized I am one. A pilgrim is somebody who journeys towards a holy and sacred place. I am journeying towards Heaven but I need help. A lot of help. We are body-soul composites (CCC 362-368) and we must strengthen our whole selves. I strive to strengthen myself physically, spiritually, intellectually, and emotionally. I am not an expert by any means but a humble servant who wants to invite others to journey together. This is meant to be a community where we can dive further into our humanity, strengthen our selves, and pray for the graces to be sanctified.
Currently, I am a Foundations 1 instructor which means I am only certified to teach Gentle level classes at this time. These classes are calm and relaxing and appropriate for all ages and skill levels, great for waking up or winding down and lowering stress! After the birth of my child, I hope to increase my certification in order to offer more levels. Until then, please join me for a Gentle class!
