This ‘Harry Potter’ Yoga Class Is Exactly What We All Need Before the Election

If you’re anything like me, you hate exercising. You hate it so much that you’ve (mostly) stopped feeling guilty about it. But now, there’s a new way to do yoga, and it may actually help you get in that groove. Yes, it’s “Harry Potter”-themed yoga. Count me in.

This new Potter-esque yoga class is a magically modified version of the Pints & Poses class held regularly at Circle Brewing Co. in Austin, Texas. What’s not to love? Everyone gets a wand and does “Harry Potter“-inspired positions, like cat/cow transfigurations and the Whomping Willow. There are also backbends that issue forth a patronus and ward off those pesky dementors.

As if that’s not enough, the instructor read from “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows” while everyone lay under invisibility cloaks (aka: yoga blankets). Heck yeah. This is pretty much what I’ll be doing in my Brooklyn living room until the election, anxiously–all while listening to the HP soundtrack. I don’t want any Voldemorts in office (I mean, who does?).

Doesn’t it just simply look divinely magical? Maybe this will actually get me to exercise.
