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 for another great yoga class yesterday. Whenever I make the time to come and visit, I'm always rewarded and leave more relaxed, more refreshed and more limber than when I came in." ~ Stefan Lehmann, Victoria, B.C.





"I really enjoyed your class, and found your instruction to be effective and inspiring. It was my first ever yoga class and it has sowed the seed for me to continue with it. Thanks for having me in your class and inspiring me to continue with yoga. I look forward to the variety of physical and spiritual benefits it will bring me." ~ Sasha Furlani





"Amazing, Joanne is fantastic, warm and kind. It felt safe and it is great to be able to do yoga again." ~ MARIA
