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 really love coming to Big Stretch...Love that there are morning and evening classes. Joanne is so lovely and makes classes adaptable to each person's needs. I never thought I would do yoga but am so glad that I found a place that has helped my confidence in yoga grow." ~ Nisha B.





"Joanne, thank you so much for a wonderful class! What a fantastic way to start the new year and with all of your lovely yogis. I am hoping you will offer Zoom classes regularly because that was so easy and fun. Feels more normal and I miss not seeing you all three times a week! More please. Happy 2021. With love." ~ SUSAN
