I have seen flyers on bulletin boards in albergues offering yoga. I don't know how consistently they are available. I have seen many pilgrims doing yoga, so you mind find others along the way and not need classes.

I completed the Frances in June and unsuccessfully searched for a yoga class. I just ended up practicing in albergues, plazas, etc., of course without a mat.

Wife was constantly on the lookout for yoga, but the closest she came was an albergue with a yoga room but no instructor. We met a traveling yoga instructor who said he was hosting evening sessions wherever he stopped, but we never met up with him again.

Casa Verde in Hospital de Orbigo has a yoga class in the evening before supper. Highly recommend!
Lovely albergue in a pretty grim area, just off the main road as it is, and even as a non-vegetarian I thorughly enjoyed the home grown, meat free meal. the yoga class was good, though for someone who hasn't done it in a long time pretty full on.

A bit harsh! It is near a supermercado and several restaurants. "Downtown" is only about a five minute walk away. I know "grim" is in the eyes of the beholder, but the albergues, all of them, are on a busier highway in San Martin, probably making them grim as well.;)

You're right @falcon269 , perhaps not beautiful would be closer to accurate. It just came as a surprise to find such a nice albergue next(ish) to a busy main road junction.
