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 definitely felt "at home" in the class last week. I slept better, felt stretched in a good way the next day, walked taller and took deeper breaths. All good. Namaste" ~ Marlane Oliver





"What can I say other than a heartfelt thank you for all you've shared with our people. You are truly an exceptional person and we are all better off having been led by you." ~ Lee Zardo , Manager, ENERJI Centre, Janssen Inc.





"Thank you for your warm welcome. I am really enjoying the classes. I appreciated at the end of the session today when you told us to thank ourselves for taking time out of our busy days to come and do this. Now that my boys are a bit bigger I've promised myself to take some time for me. I love how your classes are structured. I thoroughly enjoy the relaxation and deep breathing." ~ Amanda
