Want to refresh your yoga practice or adopt a Zen ’tude while traveling? Then try taking a yoga class at an art museum, where you can do the downward dog pose in front of a Degas or sun salutations at the foot of centuries-old Asian statues (just be sure to wear comfortable clothing, and don’t forget your yoga mat!). Here are three options to get you started:

Baltimore Museum of Art: During warmer months, en plein air yoga classes are held in a sculpture garden; otherwise, they are alongside works from European old masters, as well as collections of contemporary art and African art. The instructor, who happens to hold a degree in art history, kicks off each class on Tuesday evenings with an art-filled discussion. $110 for nonmembers for a six-week class , drop-ins are allowed if space is available; www.artbma.org

Philadelphia Museum of Art: Yoga went mod last fall when it was folded into Art After 5, a Friday-night series in the Great Stair Hall. It features DJs and live-music acts. $16 for nonmembers, www.philamuseum.org

Milwaukee Art Museum: After 171 people turned up for its first-ever yoga class on Thanksgiving weekend, the museum debuted a once-a-month class that’s held in Windhover Hall, inside the Santiago Calatrava–designed Quadracci Pavilion, which boasts a 90-foot-high glass ceiling and Lake Michigan views. $15 donation suggested (includes museum admission), www.mam.org
