Stretch Yoga

Curvy Yoga Course

Come as you are

​We're not going to beat around the bush - injuries, limitation in mobility and bigger bellies and bums can make yoga a little more challenging. At Stretch we believe that yoga is for every body – young, old, big and small - which is exactly why we've designed our Curvy Yoga course. This four-week program is an invitation for everybody to come and move their bodies in ways that feel amazing! With a focus on body acceptance and working with what you've got - we'll use lots of props and adjusted sequences to show you how you can make any yoga pose work for you!

Achieve, celebrate, transform

Four weeks of growth

We understand that life can get busy, and commitments may arise. If you miss a week, you can always make it up in the next intake or the parallel course. Alternatively, you can explore the parallel course running at our sister studio.

Small group setting

We believe in the power of personalised attention, and that's why our commitment to your growth and well-being extends to keeping our classes intentionally small. By maintaining a cozy class size, we create a supportive environment.

Yoga for everybody

Joining a 'traditional' yoga class can be frustrating and intimidating to newcomers. We've created this course so you can learn to work with what you've got, grow your confidence and have fun doing so!

Join us on the mat

Embrace the joy of movement with Stretch's Curvy Yoga course – a four-week program celebrating every body. Join us in discovering the delight of yoga tailored to your unique needs. Ready to move with confidence? Sign up now for a transformative journey towards self-love and well-being!

What do I need to bring?

For a comfortable and enjoyable experience at Stretch Yoga, we recommend bringing a few essentials:

To stay hydrated throughout your practice we recommend bringing a water bottle. Hydration is key to supporting your body as you move and stretch.

A small towel can be handy for wiping away sweat and providing additional comfort during your session.

While we have a limited number of mats available for hire at $2, we recommend bringing your own yoga mat.

What should I wear?

Remember to choose clothing that allows you to move freely and doesn't restrict your movements. As for footwear, we typically practice barefoot or with grip socks.

When it comes to attire, comfort is key. We recommend wearing breathable, moisture-wicking fabrics that allow for a full range of motion. Opt for flexible leggings or shorts paired with a comfortable tank top or T-shirt.

What if I have an injury or health concern?

We'll start to book everyone in 15 minutes prior to the class starting. Your teacher will be available to chat about anything that's going on and suggest modifications throughout the practice to keep you safe!

What's on at Stretch?

Each month we have a variety of offerings, courses and workshops to help you deepen and develop your practice on and off the mat.
