Ready for a redefined Stretching 101 class...Yoga with a Twist by Char? Your body with thank you.

Here's your chance to experience Yoga with a Twist by Char, one of the principal 'spirit' activities at Sport + Spirit for her retreat weekend. 


- By Sophie McLaughlin, Founder of Sport + Spirit


If you are anything like me, flexibility doesn’t come naturally nor do I like stretching because I am not flexible.

I always managed to use the “not enough time” excuse to avoid properly stretching before or after a workout and ignore it as part of my workout regime.

Then I wondered why I couldn't walk or move my arms the next day after an intense workout? Or why my neck strain keeps coming back?

In light of trying new things, I realized that I was thinking about stretching in the wrong way. Instead of thinking about it as a part of my workout (and not giving it enough attention), I needed to start thinking about it as a workout on its own.

That is where Charlotte Barker, one of Sport + Spirit for Her ‘spirit' activity facilitators comes into play.

Yoga with a Twist (YwT) by Char not only focuses on stretching as its core component, but it also uses equalizer bars to help clients maximize the stretches, getting the full benefit of it.

Her class helped me to enjoy stretching. As a bonus, my body seemed to thank me. The neck strain that was there in the morning, was gone. The tightness in my hamstrings (which I thought was just normal) was gone and my mind was clear and refreshed.

Check out all that Yoga with a Twist by Char has to offer and join us at Sport and Spirit for Her Retreat in the Fall.

This is the latest path that I have travelled on my journey to wellness. Stay tuned to adventures ahead.
