At this weekend’s Governors Ball on Randall’s Island, pass holders can get pumped for Kanye and Kings of Leon by working on their warrior poses. This year’s three-day music fest just added a new offering: daily yoga classes hosted by Pop Up Yoga NYC.

The 60-minute classes will be held daily—from Friday, June 7 to Sunday June —at 12:30 p.m. in the Silent Disco tent. (We did not make that up.) There will be 100 mats available for each session, on a first-come, first-serve basis for festival goers (plus goodies from Health Warrior and Vita Coco).

And the classes are being taught by some of the city’s top yogis: Friday’s class is with I.AM.YOU Yoga founder Lauren Imparato (known for her kick-ass playlists, naturally); Saturday is with Laughing Lotus’ Dana Flynn (known for flow sequences that often turn into dance parties, and very often involve glitter), and Sunday is with Pop Up Yoga founder Angelica Olstad.

You might want to start re-thinking your festival get-up now.
