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.





"My body feels much better in every way with regular practice. The sense of mental clarity it bestows always trumps the obvious physical benefits. Carving out these increments of restorative time for myself always yields the quieter, calmer mental space to withstand the hectic pace of these busy years. I hope you realize how much I treasure the yoga classes I get to." ~ Elisa





"I did want you to know how enjoyable and challenging each lesson is for me. Rarely have I seen anyone as observant as you. Bent, twisted and stretched." ~ Richard Burrows





"I am so grateful and frankly a bit giddy to return to Big Stretch classes... thank you Joanne. Big Stretch consistently exceeds my expectations... feeling soothed and very safe as always. Thanks!" ~ LUCY
