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.
