Yoga at the Museum Does your yoga practice need a little artistic inspiration? Or does your museum-going need a little yoga? Either way, you might find yoga classes at an unlikely place--a nearby art museum.

This summer and beyond, museums around the country are offering yoga classes as part of their programming.

It makes perfect sense, according to the Cincinnati Art Museum's Regina Carswell Russo. "The art museum is a place of reflection, a place to find solace and to go inside as you look at the beauty around you," she says. "What better place to pair these two art forms: going inside to see the beautify within and coming into the space to see the beauty around you?"

Russo, herself a beginning yogi, says that yoga at the museum is just another example that yoga should be adaptable. "People see that you can do a practice at home on your mat, in the park, in a studio, or at the museum," she says. "It's good to be able to find different and creative places to practice."

At San Francisco's Asian Art museum, yoga classes are aligned with the museum's goal of educating people  about Asian art and culture. "Some of our most successful programs are more spiritual, meditative programs, we have an incredible collection for that," says the Asian Art Museum's Allison Wyckoff. "We wanted to offer a yoga class to really get people thinking about the connection between our collection and this time-honored practice." The classes, part of the museum's family programming, also gives museum-going exposure to little ones. "It's a great way to encourage families and kids to come to the museum," says Wyckoff.

In July, the Brooklyn Museum offered a three-series class to correspond with a current exhibit about Vishnu. While it doesn't have any regular yoga classes, it is planning a screening of the film YogaWoman on Thursday, August 25.

Museum yoga class locations vary widely: some are held in sculpture gardens, galleries, and rotundas, while others are held in community rooms and even reception halls. Here's a taste of museums where you can find yoga.

The Dali Museum in Saint Petersburg, Florida:  Yoga + Dali
Classes, held every Sunday, take place in a room with a waterfront view.

The Noyes Museum of Art in Oceanville, New Jersey: No Sweat Yoga
Held every Sunday, you can pay per class or for a 6-class series.

Asian Art Museum, San Francisco:  Yoga Flow
Classes are part of the museum's family programming, so everyone over the age of five is welcome.

Cameron Art Museum, Wilmington, North Carolina: Yoga
Every Thursday, yogis gather to breathe and sweat.
