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 great year of yoga. You are amazing! Wishing you a happy New Year!" ~ Susan K.





"Thanks Joanne - I really appreciate the follow up and truly enjoyed the three days of classes. I must admit that I never really looked at yoga before, since I never believed that I could get my legs crossed... smiles. Obviously now I realize that is not important anyway!I truly am enjoying the sessions and feel that it is helping with
both my lower back and ankle pain.
See you tomorrow.
Ciao for now!" ~ F.D.





"Thank you for your kind remembrance of my 70th birthday. Also for my two favourite poses yesterday. You and your programs will hopefully enable me to age in a fit, flexible manner." ~ Margaret King
