Psalms & Stretches
Psalms & Stretches is an exercise class that combines physical exercise with meditation on biblical scripture. It was created by Ruth Carpenter to combine her years of experience working in the fitness industry with her passion for worship through movement. The aim of this class is to stretch out the tensions we accumulate in our daily lives, to strengthen our physical bodies and to focus our minds on our God through His word.
We have a new website! Please visit

"The session was amazing! It was completely unique; I've done lots of physical classes before, but this was completely different to anything I'd done previously. I felt so refreshed, energised and connected with God and my emotions following this workshop."
We have previously worked with; Holy Trinity Richmond (womens' weekend), Central London Vineyard (weekend away), Westwood Christian Retreat Centre (comedy writing retreat), Trinity Vineyard Church (leadership event), Husk Coffee shop (classes for community outreach programme).
