About Stretch Yoga

We are an eclectic collective of people interested in flexibility… of mind and body. We love to practice a wide range of yoga styles, sometimes with live music and always with a keen interest to find more inner space, more inner peace. We think of yoga as a proto science from long ago, an intuition that contemplative practices are part of what makes us humans. We are strivers and movers, art lovers, bright space dwellers, and we would like to share our yoga with you.

Favourable Reviews

“Beautiful, airy space, friendly staff, thoughtful and attentive instructors.”

“They are a wonderful group of people and have the best teachers in the city.”

“I love this studio. The staff is kind, it’s clean, everyone who goes is very welcoming and the staff are extremely talented.”

“Fantastic and welcoming studio. I love how bright, open and CLEAN the space is. It’s a slice of zen right downtown. The bike racks upstairs are an added bonus that I can ride my bike to the studio and have it kept safely inside while I stretch. Great classes with a diverse crowd where everyone belongs.”

“The team at Stretch goes above and beyond in providing a safe space in which to practice. The community is welcoming, this studio is a positive space.

“Each of the teacher’s personal teaching and cueing styles are integral in creating a multifaceted approach to mindfulness and overall well-being.”

“I’ve been to a few Yoga studios in Vancouver, and the one I like best is Stretch Yoga Studio. The instructors deliver classes with skill, humour and clarity. They offer classes through the day and not only in the later part of the day and evening, which I really appreciate. Their online booking is easy and fast. The studio is gorgeous, welcoming with playful art, and calming colours. It’s also filled with plants and large windows with lots of natural light. Truly a calm oasis!”
