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.





"I am so enjoying the yoga classes, just perfect for my needs. Both Steve and I (and many others I am sure) feel we have found a gem in you!" ~ Aziz





"More than just a way to alleviate the symptoms of stress, Joanne is teaching a way to improve work habits and employee satisfaction. She knows the language and the nature of office stress, but most of all she knows how to relax." ~ Ascent Magazine





"I love your class for a million reasons. The flow is natural and makes sense to my body. I love the music, candles and lighting. But most of all - you and your kindness and lovely sense of humour." ~ Rhonda Hanson MacNeil
