How to get to the class

We are now offering yoga in person and virtually (streaming). Please meet us at Sheldon Community Center (2445 Willakenzie Rd, Eugene) to join us in person. There is a parking lot available. We’re in the Hazelnut Room. We have mats, straps, bands, chairs, and blocks. To join us virtually, please log in to Google Meet at least 5 min before class starts so our instructor doesn’t have to attend to their device during the class. Please mute your mic upon login to reduce audio feedback.

About the class

FREE No prior yoga experience is required All ages/bodies/abilities/experience levels welcome

⚛ To be in a home in your body is a human right and an immense gift and privilege.
⚛ To move in a way that feels seen and supported.
⚛ To feel your breath and down-regulate your nervous system.
⚛ We are here to support you and your path to wellness.

We recognize that the Asanas are only ONE facet of yogic practice. We are grateful for the opportunity to explore our mind-body connection in a space that endeavors to support our gender-diverse community, as many of us within the community have challenged relationships with this connection.

This class is possible by a grant from Comunidad y Herencia Cultural and Eugene Arte Latino, and a partnership with the City of Eugene.

(they/them)

A non-binary genderqueer who loves movement as a way of reconnecting back to their essential nature. Tara has over 500 hours of yoga training and has been teaching locally and online since 2012. Tara is advocating deeply for somatics and movement through yoga as a way to regulate our nervous systems and be in relationship with beyond the binary belonging to the body’s wisdom. They love offering movement through the seasons and are always open to feedback on ways to make the space more inclusive and supportive for our wonderful trans and gender-diverse community.
