Do you love Harry Potter? Do you love yoga?
Chances are you answered yes to both of those questions, ’cause you clicked on this article.
Good news, muggle-borns, ’cause a woman by the name of Isabel Beltran over in the US has created… wait for it…
HARRY POTTER YOGA.
Beltran, a model and yoga teacher from Austin, Texas, took celebrated the weekend’s Halloweeny festivities with a special Potter-themed class held in a
Butterbeer brewery. The class centred around the Dealthy Hallows, with Beltran reading passages from the book during her class. Heck, punters even brandished wands.
Speaking to Mashable, Beltran’s sis Ximena Larkin described how she came to create the spooky fitness concept.
“We’re Mexican and celebrate the Day of The Dead. It’s not morbid, but rather a celebration of life (of other’s as well as our own),” Larkin said.
“I’m the bigger Harry Potter fan between the two of us and the series (especially the last book) is something that changed my perspective on death. It felt very natural to combine the three to make it timely.”
The next class will take place later this month in Austin, and while most of us Aussies will have to politely decline any invitations to due geographical issues, we will be there in spirit. (Beltran, pls come to ‘Straya.)
