Best Portsmouth Yoga Studios

While guests of our Portsmouth boutique hotels report that they're plenty relaxed during their stay with us, we know that some yoga while on vacation can center you or help you keep up with your training. For yogis on a lark, we recommend visiting one of these downtown Portsmouth yoga studios. With beautiful views of the water from each studio listed here, an hour of Portsmouth yoga will ensure you have a relaxing day in the city.

Barre & Soul | 163 Court St, Portsmouth | (978) 225-3197

Located within walking distance of The Hotel Portsmouth, this studio offers both barre and core yoga, a vigorous vinyasa flow style. With views of the water from the second floor studio, this class is both relaxing and a good workout. For something with a beat, drop into a Buti yoga class, a high-energy mix of yoga poses and dance.

3 Bridges Yoga | 185 High St, Portsmouth | (603) 766-3332

This vinyasa yoga studio is known for the welcoming attitude of its instructors who offer many levels of classes. Drop into beginner yoga for a refresher course or an Every Body session for those familiar with the poses. This is a gently heated yoga studio, and after you're warmed up, you can cool down with a post-yoga smoothie or juice at The Juicery just around the corner.

Portsmouth Paddle Co. | 371 New Castle Ave, Portsmouth | 603) 276-9354

Those looking to take their yoga practice to the next level should check out stand-up paddle board classes with Portsmouth Paddle. These SUP pilates and yoga classes offer an added challenge and core workout—and perhaps a refreshing if unintentional dip in the river! The $35 class includes 15 minutes of instruction on land and then an hour of yoga on the paddleboard.
