Where would you rather practice yoga: any old studio, or the courtyard at the MFA? We thought so.

Starting in January, the museum is launching a yoga series called Namaste Saturday. Classes will be held on the second Saturday morning of each month, from January through June, in the Shapiro Family Courtyard. Each session will be taught by a different instructor, starting with Sara DiVello in January and Daniel Max in February.

At $25, MFA yoga is pricier than your average class—but that fee also includes admission to the museum, which typically costs $25 on its own, so you’re at least getting some multitasking in. Classes are free to MFA members.

Tickets for the entire series can be purchased on the MFA’s website starting today.

Classes will run from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. on the second Saturday of the month, beginning January 9, 2016, at the Museum of Fine Arts, 465 Huntington Ave., Boston. For more information, visit
