Namaste, Dungeon Master.

There are plenty of activities planned to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Dungeons and Dragons, but this might just be the weirdest.

Role-playing fans on a quest for inner peace are seeing their worlds collide in Brooklyn, NY, where the world's first Dungeons & Dragons yoga classes are being held.

Yes. Dungeons and Dragons yoga.

Paladins, half-elves and wizards practiced their downward facing dogs while battling Displacer Beasts and Gelatinous Cubes in the one-time event. It was such a success, though, that creator Scott Wayne Indiana says he's thinking about making it a regular occurrence and branching out to different locations.

For convenience's sake, the attendees "jointly inhabited" a single character, which Indiana described as "a roguish, rugged individual who has run afoul of the local law." Chaotic good, then? Together, they attempted to deliver a package to an ancient temple.

No, seriously. This happened. The video proof:

The yoga moves were designed specifically for the game, ranging from "opening door" to "dice rolling." And like any good D&D adventure, the yoga instructor was prepared to improvise where necessary.

So why blend the two? Indiana says he wanted to add a "guided narrative" to traditional yoga. He's looking to expand things a bit more for the next outing, which will feature more decision-making, die rolls and "player discussion," though if it's anything like the D&D games we've played, that "discussion" can sap the calm out of the room really quickly.
