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.





"Thank you for instructing the intro yoga class at our BBQ. Our friends had a fabulous time and the sequence that you lead gave everyone an excellent taste of yoga. Ross and I especially appreciated that you took the time to answer questions following the session. It added a special touch." ~ Dawn





"Hi Joanne - really appreciate the yoga 'snacks' and your continuing messages. It's a strange world right now and I think all we can do is take it one day at a time...which is what I'm trying to do. There is so much we (and the experts) don't know and there is a lot of 'noise' out there...yoga and meditation is helping to keep me grounded. Hope you are doing well, hugs." ~ BARBARA





"Joanne. I ALWAYS feel better, more calm, relaxed and with greater fluidity in my movement after your classes! It's a youthful tonic! Hugs". ~ Susan M.
