Yoga with Baby Goats at Spring Haven Farm @ Springhaven Farm
Jun 16 @ 9:00 am

What’s better than Yoga? How about Baby Goat Yoga!
Please join us for an hour-long, instructor-led, goat infused, yoga session suitable for all levels of yogi’s.

What is Goat Yoga?

Goat yoga is a yoga class where you have the opportunity to engage with the goats while performing instructor-led exercises. You can always take a quick break to snuggle a baby goat. The classes are great exercise, fun and they are light-hearted. It’s worth coming to a session just to experience it! This is yoga for everyone from first timers to experienced. If you’ve never done yoga before, just watch the person next to you. There is no wrong way to do it. The idea is to have fun and spend time with the animals.

If you don’t get enough one on one time with a goat during the class, please feel free to stay after and pet and/or hold one: most everyone does. We also have food available for $1 to be able to feed them if you like.

Be sure to choose the correct date in the drop down to the right.
