Harry Potter Inspired Yoga 2017

Harry Potter inspired yoga has come and gone, but maybe you can catch the train at Platform 9 and 3/4 next year!

This practice was designed for ages 7 and up, and use of wands was encouraged! I drew inspiration from the books, movies and screenplays, and created sequences with a playful approach. I tried to make it fun and challenging for both children and adults. We did a Moon Salutation to warm up (inspired by Luna Lovegood), some transfiguration magic to do animal poses, and we both dueled and flew like wizards.

The turnout was extremely modest, but I'm grateful for those who came! We had a little fun with a homemade photobooth prop after our practice, which was inspired by Sirius Black's infamous escape from Azkaban.

Besides the wizards and muggles in attendance, we also had a guest owl. She was very well-behaved during the practice and didn't try to deliver any mail while we were on our mats, using our wands.

I hope to see you next year!
