Harry Potter Yoga Is a Thing Now!

While most Potterheads would be reading or re-reading the series and binge-watching its film adaptations, certified yoga instructor Isabel Beltran and her sister planned to transform their regular yoga classes into a Harry Potter-themed Yoga class. 

Around 34 lucky wizards and witches who had a sore back from sitting on their broomsticks all day, headed to the Circle Brewing Co. in Austin, Texas.

It was Isabel and her sister's idea to do something around Halloween that integrated the themes of life and death from Harry Potter, Halloween and Día De Los Muertos. Halloween also marks the date Lily and James Potter, Harry Potter's parents died. A yoga class on the day before the holiday seemed like the perfect opportunity to honor the dead. 

Although yoga wasn't really a part of the Hogwarts curriculum, the class paid homage to all the three concepts, leading participants through an entire journey of the Hogwarts Express, navigating their broomsticks and channeling their inner Professor McGonagall to transfigure into cat poses.
 

It may be interesting to note that Dumbledore's Army (the yogis), were given a wand to incorporate into their practice, which they could later take home.

At the end of the class, the attendees were given an Invisibility Cloak while the instructor read out a passage from Harry Potter and  the Deathly Hallows to lead them into a five-minute Shavasana.

At the end of the class, the yogis were treated to adorable sorting hat cookies, an epic "potion station" and other delightful Hogwarts-inspired props.

How magical! We're hoping other instructors follow suit.
