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.





"Just wanted to let you know how fabulous it is to get back to your wonderful Gentle Stretch Yoga Class accompanied by your soft and peaceful voice and helping me get my legs and arms untangled. You were right, I was a little sore the next day but it is a good sore knowing that I am making my body healthier. Thank you." ~ Anne-Marie S.





"Joanne, thank you for inviting me!! I loved teaching the workshop and exchanging ideas. I'm glad to hear that people enjoyed looking though the drawings this week. It's so amazing to see what emerges from the unknown." ~ Tania Love, Workshop Instructor





"Love your sense of humour, and that you always lead us to give back." ~ Arlene Hershfield
