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 so much for our gentle and calming Sadhana. You are a very bright light in my day." ~ Rika L.





"Dear Joanne,
Thank you for your wonderful yoga classes - you've had me soooo relaxed again today that my brain couldn't form the words to thank you and wish you a cozy weekend!!!
On the way out I overheard two ladies commenting that your class was exactly what they needed - being stretched every which way - and I couldn't agree more!
So next time you find me just grinning at you you'll know why!! Ha ha... Looking so much forward to your next class."
~ Hanne





"Thanks for all that you and yoga have given to me. It is clearest to me in balance postures - the groundedness, the heart lifted, the point of focus, the emptying of the mind." ~ Claire Edmonds
