Exercise can be tough, and sometimes it takes a bit of extra effort to get off the couch and get moving. As it turns out, the best form of motivation often comes in the form of a beer at the end of an especially hard workout. Here are our picks for the best boozy workouts in Denver in reverse alphabetical order, with the exception of the 2017 Best of Denver winner, handing out burpees and beers and wrapping up the list.

YogaZo's Pints and Planks
Various Locations
This mobile yoga studio is out to get you. Since YogaZo has no permanent location, weekly classes instead occur in boozy establishments like Declaration Brewing, Epic Brewing, C Squared Ciders and Grandma’s House. Pints and Planks is an all-level flow class for any yogi or yogini, and you can get it for just $10. If beer isn’t your thing, you can practice with YogaZo on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month for the studio's Wine and Warriors class, held at Infinite Monkey Theorem’s RiNo location. A full schedule is available online at YogaZoCO.com. For more information, call 937-671-8917.

Yogi Baere Community Class
320 Broadway Suite E

Nothing builds community faster than a room full of people trying to get into crow pose and then laughing about it over beers afterward. The staff at CorePower Yoga’s South Broadway location wanted to get to know their neighbors, and they decided the best way to do so was to offer a free community class across the street in Baere Brewing Company. The cleverly named Yogi Baere class is offered monthly, and participants get $1 off pints when the class is over. Follow CorePower Yoga’s Facebook page for the next class.
