There is nude yoga, disco yoga and anti-gravity yoga – so it’s seems almost right that Harry Potter fans have invented their own way to downward dog and savasana. In fact, why wasn’t it a compulsory Hogwarts subject?

To mark the anniversary of Lily and James Potter’s death (yep, for Potter-heads that’s a thing), a bunch of Muggles in Austin, Texas, heading to the pub to do yoga – dressed in their finest Wizardary wear.

The practice included standard yoga poses but according to cosmopolitan.com, they were given a Potter-spin; there were Slytherin cobras (baby cobra), Whomping Willow (tree pose) and wand-wielding backbends to “summon a Patronus and cast off Dementors.”

Lines from the instructor’s script included: “Imagine you’re sitting on the Hogwarts Express!” and “Come on, Dumbledore’s Army!”.

The best bit? All attendees were given wands to do the class with and at the end, in lieu of mediation, a passage from ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ was read.
