This Harry Potter Yoga Class Is the Most Magical Way to Exercise

Wingardium Yogiosa

To commemorate the anniversary of Lily and James Potter’s deaths, one Austin-based yoga instructor organized the class of every Harry Potter fan’s dreams.

Instead of teaching her regular Pints & Poses session at Circle Brewing Co. Sunday, Isabel Beltran decided to add some wizarding world flair into the day-before-Halloween workout, according to Cosmopolitan. With the help of her sister, Ximena Larkin, Beltran ran a class in which every participant not only received a wand — which was incorporated into several of the poses —but was treated to a read-aloud of a Deathly Hallows passage.

The two sisters also had some post-vinyasa flow surprises in store for the yogis — who were referred to as Dumbledore’s Army — including sorting hat cookies, a potion station and a Mandrake garden.

See photos of the magical session below.
