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.





"Thanks so much, Joanne. I love attending this class; it always sets me up for the year ahead and puts me in the real spirit of the holidays. You are a gem. Have a wonderful 2013!!!" ~ Kara C.





"Slowly I'm reaching for my toes. Thanks for the inspiration!" ~ Scott Colby





"Your yoga classes are a true blessing and I am always looking forward to the next one. For your last 2 classes I was especially grateful since I was renovating my kitchen and had been painting the kitchen cupboards for days and was feeling muscles I didn't know I had - but not in a good way! The deep stretches in your class were doing wonders to my achy body - thank you so much for that." ~ Hanne B.
