Whether you prefer your yoga with a view or with a margarita, there are some great places to get your Downward Dog on in Albuquerque. Check out one of these fun options:

Yoga at El Pinto Restaurant

1. Sunday Yoga & Margaritas in the Park at El Pinto

Sunday yoga just started at El Pinto Restaurant and New Mexican Salsa Company and it's already packed. Instructors rotate weekly from popular studios around Albuquerque and class participants can enjoy an hour long session for a small $5 donation. If you stay for brunch (and a margarita!) you'll receive a $10 discount. The class is open to all levels. Of course, the restaurant serves other beverages including pH balanced, ionized water, for those that don't want to start their Sunday Funday too early.

Sunday Yoga & Margaritas

When: 9-10am AND 10-11am Sundays through the summer

Where: El Pinto Restaurant - 10500 Fourth Street NW 

Cost: $5 suggested donation

SUP Yoga with SOL Board Sports

2. SUP (Stand Up Paddle Board Yoga) with SOL Board Sports

If you're looking to walk on water, this is about as close as you're going to get. Paddle board yoga takes traditional yoga and adds a balance requirement that will make your abdominal and back muscles work in different ways.  There are a couple of class options around town including the one hour lessons at SOL Board Sports. No experience is necessary and there are no age requirements - you can expect to be introduced to a variety of levels of yoga poses. Or, if you'd prefer, you can rent a board and practice for yourself on the river.

Paddle Board Yoga

When: Wednesdays, 7-8pm

Where: West Mesa Aquatic Center

Cost: $25 for single class with a reservation; $120 for a package of six classes

Open Space Visitor Center

3. Yoga with a View 

If you haven't been out to the Open Space Visitor Center on Albuquerque's west side in a while, Yoga with a View may be just the excuse to do so. The 90-minute indoor class from instructor Jenny Dominque welcomes all levels and looks out over the beautiful fields of the Open Space. If you'd like to enjoy the outdoors beforehand, Jenny leads a half an hour seated meditation session before the class starts. 

Yoga with a View at Open Space Visitor Center

When: Sundays 9-10:30am (come early for the outdoor meditation session from 8:30-9am)

Where: Open Space Visitor Center - 6500 Coors Blvd.

Cost: First class is $5, and the drop-in rate is $15 after the first class. Discounted packages are also available.

Yoga on the Farm

4. Yoga in the Field

Get your nature on at the Sol Harvest Farm (behind Farm & Table restaurant) during Yoga in the Field, brought to you by Orange Yoga. Bring a mat and meet on the yoga deck for this fun class. Rather practice on the grass vs. the dirt? No problem. Orange Yoga offers classes at Montgomery Park (near the tennis courts) on Sundays at 11am and Thursdays at 6pm.  

Yoga in the Field

When: Wednesdays 6-7pm

Where: Sol Harvest Farm (behind Farm & Table Restaurant) 8917 4th Street NW
