Yoga with Goats is about disconnecting with day to day stress, while some claiming it lowers blood pressure, helps with depression, reduces anxiety, and helps you to focus on positive and happy vibes. It really is next to impossible to stay serious when you see a goat do their little sideways hop or rear up when playing with their herdmates.
Our 1 hour class will be taught by Christine Riccio - RYT 200 who offers a blend of gentle flow and vinyasa flow classes including the goats. After class there will be time for photos and if you choose a short walk in the woods with the herd to see how they truly interact with you, their environment and each other. If you haven't smiled yet you will after watching their antics on their walk!
Into The Woods Farm herd has proven themselves as the perfect Goat Yoga ambassadors during their yoga debut sessions and various public events with children, adults and the elderly during 2016 and 2017.
NOTE~ 10 person minimum for a class to run. All registrations will be moved to another available class in the event of cancellation.
