Damn I might finally purchase a pair of Flat Heads since I can try them on. Haven't had a chance to make it to their location in SF when I have been down there.

I saw steven alan was open. There was a store with some chocolates, not exactly sure what it exactly is and if its open. 

 

Others dont seem to be open yet. I saw was selfedge and danner, still working on fixing it up. Not sure what the store right next to selfedge was though.

I believe the chocolate shop you saw is Quin, the new candy shop from the founder of Saint Cupcake.

Can anybody recommend a place to learn yoga in Portland? I'm interested in it as exercise (strength, flexibility, and stability), not for spirituality. Ideally inner-/upper-SE or inner-/lower-NE, but I can travel. I've never done it before, but I want to try!

There's so much yoga in this town it's absurd. Probably just find the studio that's most convenient to your home or work and give it a try--be sure to look at the class list and pick a beginner class. The studio in my area, Sellwood Yoga, is great. Really excellent teachers. But like I said, there's no need to drive all over town just to try it. There are great studios in every neighborhood.

Beginner yoga is def more about breathing and slow poses, which is nice, but not always a workout (thought it can be). Once you are familiar with that, you can take some classes that move through the poses more quickly, which is both peaceful but also very strength-building.

People do yoga for a lot of reasons--to chill out, to move mindfully, to get a workout. You can determine pretty quickly which of these appeals most to you.

EDIT: Good studios in roughly the area you described: Yoga Bhoga, The Bhakti Shop, Yoga Shala NE. (yoga studios are apparently right there in line w/ Thai restaurants and hair salons when it comes to punny names)

Blackbird is gone.

Go to Union Way to see Danner, Self Edge, Steven Alan, etc.

Blake is always worth a stop. Frances May is good. Woodlands/Tanner Goods is a killer spot, and you can check out the Poler store next door.

There's tons of food recs in this thread, so browse back a bit.
