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 just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your yoga class. I'm at a stage in my journey where I want to draw the mind inwards in order to examine it and familiarize myself with its nature. The way that you teach and the compassion that you bring into your class is very conducive to this kind of exploration." ~ Femke L.





"Thank you for bringing the magic of The Big Stretch to the comfort of my living room. It's been such a long time since I've been able to enjoy the yoga goddess guidance and my body thanks you for it! The Zoom era of The Big Stretch is going to make my 2021 stellar. Much love to everyone! It was a pleasure to practice along side you! I just love The Big Stretch Community. xo" - IRINA





"You are an inspiration to us all and a beautiful treat each and every week. Thank you so much for enriching my life each week - you're such a blessing!" ~ Natasa Hatsios, Harlequin Enterprises, Corporate Yoga Program
