Ok, so I am the poster child for white and nerdy. I try to be live and let live and let live as far as fandoms go. But I just came downstairs to a piece on Innerspace (Canadian Sci Fi channel’s infotainment show) that just made me want to head desk.
One of the hosts was doing “Harry Potter Yoga”. They actually called poses things like “Downward Dumbledore”, and were doing moves with a wand.
Apparently this is a thing in Toronto.
Clearly the people involved don’t have any qualms about cultural appropriation and yoga. To me, it feels like a bridge waaaayyy too far.
ETA:. I put a link in here about Harry Potter Yoga, but it doesn’t seem to be showing up. Trying again.
