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 a wonderful winter journey." ~ Dee Tung





"Joanne, our instructor, is fabulous: warm, kind and intelligent. Unbelievably soothing voice and she makes everyone feel so welcome to progress at her own pace. One of my favourite, most peaceful places is her lovely studio with her guiding us. I will be with her now for three years this spring but there are women who have been faithfully coming to her for 20 years! Men, too! My son came and loved it. My husband needs it, too." ~ Susan M.





"Many thanks for the 'Peace' yoga t-shirts. We wore them with pride on the second day of our journey during the Weekend to End Breast Cancer." ~ Stephanie and Sarah
