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 Joanne. Feeling much more like myself. Yoga rocks!" ~ Elisa





"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





"Comfort & Joy - an outstanding and refreshing practice for a crazy world! You've outdone yourself by putting together such a wonderful course during such a busy time of year. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to challenge myself with a morning practice and find peace. I felt fantastic and would highly recommend it to anyone." ~ Irina Fortey
