How Prayer Motion Works

By connecting intentional prayer gestures with music and movement, Prayer Motion provides a sense of calmness that will leave you feeling renewed and energized.

Engage The Brain & Body

It is medically proven that the brain releases a calming chemical called Serotonin when one engages in deep breathing, gentle movement with soft music in a prayerful way.

Improves Focus

The Prayer Motion gestures are derived from the fifth-century Benedictine monastic prayer signs. It is a perfect tool to teach our children how to fill their minds with words, prayers, scripture and positive affirmations that come alive in movement.

What our members are saying about Prayer Motion

Student Member

"It helped me 'pray through' some of my own stress. I think prayer motion can help people to take a moment and think, reflect and in turn, be at peace."

Rooted in fifth-century Benedictine Monastic prayer

The material in this program is steeped in Catholic teaching and designed to be used in the Catholic schools. Most of the prayers and blessings come from Sacred Scripture including the weekly Responsorial Psalms, the Beatitudes, the Lord's Prayer as well as the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, the Guardian Angel Prayer, the Suscipe of St. Ignatius of Loyola, God Bless America and many, many more.


Our Story

Prayer Motion is an innovative program that incorporates prayer gestures with movement and music. Prayer Motion founder, Dr. Anne Borik, initially developed the program to help her grandmother recover from a stroke. Leveraging her background as a Board Certified Medical Physician, Exercise Physiologist and martial artist, Dr. Borik was able to create a system that actively engages the human spirit. Voted one of Arizona's Top Docs, Dr. Borik is actively involved in the program's continued research and development.

Prayer Motion is a great way to memorize prayers and scripture. It is an effective tool to quiet the chatter in your brain that often gets in the way of staying focused and productive.

Dr. Anne Borik, a Catholic medical physician, developed this program to be a very simple, fun and effective way to help decrease stress in your class while being grounded in prayer. The instructional videos and music are organized into several categories that are intended to be used in the morning, before lunch, after recess, at the end of the day and anytime you feel the need to help re- focus the class.
