Poses at the ready: the Harry Potter yoga trend is a thing


Harry Potter Yoga

Hogwarts can be stressful, what with Voldemort on your back, dementors around every corner, as well as giant spiders and snakes hunting you down. But never fear, thanks to the Circle Brewing Company and two sisters from Texas, wizards and witches can now breathe a breath of fresh air and find their inner calm with magical yoga classes.

In October, Yoga instructor Isabel Beltran and her sister Ximena Larkin transfigured their ordinary Halloween yoga classes into a magical Harry Potter themed workout.

The class featured magical poses such as the whomping willow (a tree pose with a wand) and the cat pose (in which you channel Professor McGonagall’s ability to transform into a cat).

The classes’ enormous success lead the pair to put on another Harry Potter-themed class in November. Now, the trend is catching on.

Yoga studio PopUp Asana in Toronto is putting on a pop-up Harry Potter themed yoga session this month to raise money for the  SickKids Foundation, in which all proceeds go to local charities.

The St. Louis County Library has also hosted Harry Potter themed yoga classes in several locations this month.

Can we please accio these classes so we can perform magical Harry Potter poses no matter where we live in the world?!
