Can you imagine anything sweeter than a Savasana-chocolate combo to finish out your vinyasa sesh? Well, the chocolate company Love Cocoa recently partnered with Guzel Mursalimova, a United Kingdom–based yoga instructor, to create a 90-minute class that pairs meditation and restorative yoga with delicious organic, vegan chocolate, Brit + Co reported.

While the first half of the class involves enjoying a chocolate bar while using ancient Buddhist techniques to, per the class description, “unravel a new spectrum of chocolate flavors and sensations,” the second portion pairs restorative poses with essential oils to increase flexibility and relax the muscles. Basically, you go about the yoga class in pure antioxidant-boosted bliss.

“There are many parallels [between chocolate and yoga]—from experiencing a naturally elevated mood after indulging in a piece of delicious chocolate, to the feeling of lightness and radiance after a restorative yoga practice.” —Guzel Mursalimova, yoga instructor

“There are many parallels [between chocolate and yoga]—from experiencing a naturally elevated mood after indulging in a piece of delicious chocolate, to the feeling of lightness and radiance after a restorative yoga practice,” Mursalimova told Brit + Co. “For me, mindful movement, power of breath, and chocolate are a perfect match.”

The first class already happened in London (no word on a susequent sessions yet!), but that doesn’t mean you can’t try something similar at home: It might yield the most genuine happy baby pose ever.

These yoga poses will help you live your healthiest, most vibrant life. Not into yoga? Try out puppy Pilates instead.
