Harry Potter Yoga Exists—Here's Where You Can Try It

We live in a world where there are entire fitness studios devoted to Drake's sweet, sweet melodies and where we can adorn our cheeks with Hello Kitty–inspired blushes. But while it was only a matter of time before someone decided to combine yoga with the wizarding world of Harry Potter, that doesn't make the fact that it exists any less magical. And here's the kicker: It's held in a brewery. Of butterbeer.

Those lucky enough to live in Austin, Texas, have access to this perfect amalgamation of everything good in the world: The city's Circle Brewing Co. holds yoga classes (with sips afterward, natch) on the regular, and its instructors had the brilliant foresight to give one of the recent sessions a Harry Potter theme. Attendees were apparently given a wand upon entering, and every pose had a spin that J.K. Rowling herself would certainly approve: Think Whomping Willow instead of tree pose, and a cat/cow transfiguration. Backbends provided a great opportunity for some Matrix-like dementor battling. There may or may not have been a dramatic reading during Savasana.

Whether or not this will become a regular thing remains to be seen—but in the meantime, 50 points to Gryffindor!
