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 thoroughly enjoyed my class at The Big Stretch and am looking forward to attending more of your classes as I work them around my schedule. Your space was warm, welcoming and your voice was gentle and soothing. I enjoyed the structure of the class very much. You created an environment that encouraged students to work at whatever level was comfortable for them at that moment and I really appreciate that approach. Thank you again." ~ Kate Morgan





"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.





"Yoga really makes me feel much better after a stressful day at school. I especially like when there are candles lit up because it makes the room look magical." ~ Jennifer Manley
