Join us for a bike-focused yoga class with our pal Tara Chowdhury! Tara teaches alignment-based yoga, a practice of training your muscles to support your bones and joints. In her classes, you will learn how to avoid unhealthy patterns that lead to pain.
Attendance will be capped at 8 people, so please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot for yourself!

A bit more about Tara: We got to know Tara through our Saddle Library program, as she tried saddle after saddle…after saddle. After finding that all of them were uncomfortable in similar places and ways for her, Tara decided to apply what she’d learned through her yoga practice to be more intentional about her posture on the bike to better align her body and, voila!, suddenly she started to feel more comfortable in the saddle and on her bike in general. She suggested maybe yoga-based alignment for bike comfort might be something that other riders might be interested in learning about too and we were like “HECK YES.”
When she's not riding her bike or doing yoga, Tara is a neuroscientist at OHSU studying why males and females are vulnerable to different mental health issues.
