If you love to lotus-pose, yoga classes are just the beginning. Yoga classes and workshops are popping up at breweries, brunches and other unexpected places. Go ahead, get your omm on.

Yoga Retreats

You mean I can eat, drink and be merry with my fellow yoga lovers for a long weekend or week-long vacay? Absolutely. YogaOne studio hosts an annual Women’s Weekend Yoga Retreat in the Texas Hill Country that includes all classes, meals, and accommodations for $375 for the first 10 registrants or $425 at the regular price. For a more exotic setting, yoga instructors Lauren Donelson and Brittany Kraft of joy yoga host trips to locales such as Tulum, Mexico and Ubud, Bali. The trips include daily yoga classes, excursions and more.

Paddleboard Yoga – SUP with that?

Even if you are brand new to yoga and stand-up paddle boarding, a morning adventure on Lake 288 with Big Power Yoga is an awesome way to socialize and enjoy the recent drop in temperatures. You will have time to get comfortable on the paddleboard before diving into the yoga class. There are also intermediate class options.
