Therapeutic Goat Yoga (Lots of goat cuddles that often includes babies)
This isn't your average goat yoga, or baby goat yoga. We are going on our 4th year hosting wellness programs with our goats such as goat yoga. Our goats are trained and love to cuddle. We include over 20 goats in the class (often including babies) to optimize chances for goat interaction for EVERY participant. (This class will happen rain or shine. We have an event tent!).
Please see our
Therapeutic goat yoga is all about the cuddles and lots of interactions with the animals! Our goats are trained for therapy programs, and absolutely adore people. They enjoy cuddles, snuggles, pets, and playing with participants.
This class is for all levels of yogis including complete beginners.
Instructors will lead you through a Yoga flow that is mostly on the ground, while our goats and sheep are wandering around eating, cuddling, and playing. Our babies may even "participate" with you (i.e. jump on you. Don't worry the babies are less than 15 lbs.!) Our goats have been known to cuddle up on a mat, or climb in your lap when you are doing poses on the ground. They are trained therapy animals and love nothing better than bringing a smile to participants faces!
We promise you lots of fun!
This will be a paid class at $23 per participant (smaller class size). You may pay online through eventbrite for a small fee to reserve your spot, or you may contact us by email to find out the process for mailing a check and save on the fee (we need at least a week's advance notice).
Wear clothes and shoes you don't mind getting dirty from all the goat love ("yoga pants" not required-just be comfy), bring a large towel, and come ready to laugh and relax.
We do ask that if your group has more than 10 people in it, you contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a private event if at all possible. We try to keep the public class spots available for those who don't have enough people for a private event, if we can.
Once signed up please let us know if you won't be able to make it so we can open your ticket to another yogi and possibly get you a refund! :) (Refund Policy: If requested prior to 48 hours of event total refund will be given no matter what. If requested less than 48 hours of event we will try to find another attendee to take your place. At that point the ticket is non-refundable unless we are able to find another attendee. We can not change your ticket to a different date.)
Participants ages 6 and up are welcome for the yoga class with a ticket. We ask that all participants are respectful of those around them, and treat the animals with kindness and respect too! If any of your participants are under the age of 14 please note it when you sign up.
Mats are provided, but you will want at least one LARGE TOWEL to lay down on your mat, with a possible extra towel in case of "goat accidents". We do have towels for rent for $2 each.
We will have veggies or treat hay for the goats for sale for $1 or you can bring your own organic fruits and veggies to share. We are also happy to take your old food you are ready to throw out to give to our pig Miss Charlotte throughout the week (dairy, meat, veggies, and fruits)
There will be farm products such as goat milk soap, goat cheese and desserts, t-shirts, and woodworking items for sale if you are interested. We accept cash, check, Venmo, and Paypal on site for farm products, as well as credit for everything but the goat cheese and desserts.
We will send out an email the week before your class with details about directions and reminders of what to bring as well as a weather update. Please be on the lookout for this. Check your SPAM if you haven't received it by Thursday before your class. There is NO NEED to print your ticket. If you don't get the email please check in with us.
Inclement Weather Policy: (includes severe weather conditions ONLY! We have an event tent in case of rain.) We will announce potential weather hazards in our email the week before the event. If we feel that poor weather is imminent we will send out another email by the day before the class is going to occur announcing the class is cancelled. We will also post it on Facebook and Instagram. If class is cancelled refunds will be issued to all attendees, and you will be sent a link to sign up for other classes if you wish!
