About The Big Stretch

strengthen your body, nurture your soul and lift your spirit

A small, intimate yoga centre that opened its doors in 1999, The Big Stretch is a warm, welcoming space that offers hatha yoga classes to all age groups. With candles and music, and a small group of instructors, classes are tailored to the dynamics of the group attending. Instructors focus on each student and his or her needs, challenges or injuries. The Big Stretch also offers corporate yoga, workshops and yoga retreats.

Hatha yoga is a gentle, yet effective yoga practice that enhances your health and well-being. The simple breathing, stretching and muscle relaxation techniques relieve various symptoms of stress, including tension headaches, fatigue, anxiety,
back-pain, depression and insomnia.

In our classes, we slow down from our hectic schedules, allowing the breath to flow through the postures. Create balance by uniting opposites - effort and grace, stability and fluidity, strength and softness. Rather than just exercising, we can begin to connect the breath with body and mind, directing our attention inward.

Mats, blankets, bolsters, blocks, straps, zafus and eye pillows are provided for your support, comfort and convenience. Inspiring music and candles, warm, earthy hardwood floors, large windows and soothing blue walls create a gentle and relaxing atmosphere.





"Gauzy white curtains covering large open windows form an undulating wall on the south side of this spacious studio. Students are drawn here by the serenity of the space, as well as the soothing encouragement of director Joanne Lowe." ~ Toronto Life Magazine





"Big Stretch is a great space with a fantastic yoga instructor in Joanne. She is so talented and calming, and she connects with her class in a very peaceful and health affirming way. If you haven't tried it you should seriously consider it. Eleven years ago she convinced me that doing yoga was possible for me, and I haven't looked back!" ~ Maria Milanetti





"Congratulations on a beautiful, soulful business." ~ Libbie Oag
