PORTLAND, Ore. - If your muscles are tight and you need a little stretching, you might want to head to the Pearl District next weekend for the Stretch 4 Survivors yoga series.

It all runs from noon on Saturday, April 13 to noon on Sunday, April 14 and it doesn't matter what your level of fitness is - there's something for everyone, whether you are a beginner or an expert.

If you'd like to join in, the cost is $30 for one class or $50 for unlimited classes. All those 18 and under can get in free with one registered parent or guardian. Teams of up to 24 people can get in for $500.
