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.





"Thank you so much for such great yogic experiences. Sadhanas, retreat, workshops, so many Thursday nights. You've been a very positive influence in my life for a lot of years. You are the thing I miss most about my old neighbourhood. Thank you for such good memories and for helping me make yoga a part of my life. Namaste." ~ Rachel





"Thank you so much, it was a wonderful class. I am looking forward to next time. It had been several years since I did any form of exercise and even longer since i did yoga. I had such a great experience, I really felt comfortable, relaxed, very stretched haha, and it just felt easy to slip
into the rhythm of the class. It's all true what they say, Joanne at Big Stretch is fantastic!!!!"





"It is always a lovely experience being in your class and seeing your kind visage guiding us through healing movements! With much gratitude and appreciation, see you soon." ~ Asifa
