Goat yoga classes include 30 minutes of yoga taught by a certified yoga instructor and 30 minutes of free time where you can pet the goats, take photos and relax in the goat pasture (weather permitting) or our indoor studio. New to yoga? No worries! There are no prerequisites (none, zero, zilch!). The moment the goats walk into the room, all your stress will melt away. That's a promise! Children 10 years and older are welcome with an accompanying parent/guardian and signed parent waiver on file. Our instructors will lead you through various poses while goats wander freely between you. If you're one of the lucky ones, they may even jump on your back! Bring your camera for photos! We guarantee lots of smiles and belly laughs, goat selfies, warm cuddles, and a relaxing, meditative environment.
Our farm has everything necessary to ensure an enjoyable time and a quality experience like none other! If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact us. Be sure to bring your yoga mat, camera, water, mosquito spray (we’re close to the wetlands) and weather appropriate clothing. In the fall, winter, and during inclement weather, classes will be held in our newly renovated, HEATED, INDOOR yoga studio.
