Yogis can love a good brew. Cardio junkies can enjoy a mimosa or two. And everyone can agree that exercise is best when it precedes a tasty meal or drink. Grab a yoga mat or tennis shoes and try out one of these local restaurants and brew houses that host workout specials. Consider it a reward for a tough workout because balance is the name of the game, right?

Yoga on the HG Rooftop
Kurt Johnson teaches a yoga class for all levels at 9 am on April 1 on the rooftop of HG Sply Co. After the workout, let a brunch buffet and mimosas refuel you. Lowest Greenville Collective is hosting its Experience Lowest Greenville festival the same day, making this an event within an event. Tickets, which usually sell out, are $35. 

Bike + Brunch at Vital Fitness Studio
The Joule’s fitness studio Vital offers a 45-minute spin class and prix-fixe brunch every third Saturday of the month at 11:15 am. After the performance ride, indulge in Nutella doughnuts, a mimosa, and other goodies at the delicious American-Italian eatery Americano. This $40 class is not exclusive to Vital members. 

Yoga or Burn & Brews at Community Beer Co.
As one of the first breweries in North Texas to capitalize on those who love a sweaty workout and a cold pint, Community Beer offers about two sweat sessions per month, usually announced on Facebook. On April 22, CubeFit Yoga teaches a one-hour yoga class followed by a brewery tour and pint. Catch Burn & Brews, a 45-minute HIIT (high intensity interval training) session, followed by a tour and beer, on a to-be-announced Saturday in April. Both classes start at 10:30 am and cost $15.

Brawl & Brews at Texas Ale Project
The Design District brewery partnered with Barre Code Plano and Barre Code Dallas Design District to offer a 50-minute kickboxing class called Brawl, followed by a brew on April 1. Brawl ends just in time for a free tour of the brewery. Though Barre Codes are hosting the event, there’s no need to be a member at the fitness studios to join. Members pay $15 and non-members pay $20. 

Yoga & Craft Beer at Tupps Brewery
North Dallas yogis can sign up for a stout workout at Tupps Brewery in McKinney on April 22 at 9 am. BYOM (bring your own mat, that is) to this free hour-long class. After getting into a warrior state of mind, sip on a Cotton Mill Gold, Black Ale, or another brew (or kombucha). Plus, Tupps’ event is the perfect excuse to explore this charming town

Yoga Brunch Dallas
The name of this business founded by two sisters explains itself. Choose one of five yoga-and-brunch options or customize your own for an in-home yoga-and-brunch experience. Grab four or more friends and pick from options such as Detox, which includes a 75-minute detox session and a smorgasbord of juices, fresh salmon, and bagels, or Party Yogis, an energizing take on a cocktail party with hors d'oeuvre.
