A small, intimate yoga centre that opened its doors in 1999, The Big Stretch Yoga Centre is a warm, welcoming space that offers Hatha yoga classes, corporate yoga and retreats.
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.
