Why You Will Love Goat Yoga
On a small town farm in Oregon, there is a yoga class that has a 1,200 person waiting list. No, it's not with a famous yoga instructor or comes with the promise of enlightenment. It simply has a few special guests at every class.
Goat yoga is a form of yoga invented at No Regrets Farm in Oregon. There, yoga classes are held in a natural environment with a small herd of goats free to roam about during lessons. The goats snuggle, climb on students, and caper about through the class.
“You're allowed to pet the goats if you like, but it is expected for you to carry on with your class and not to let them distract you too much.”
The novelty of goat yoga has made this class a hit, and now goat yoga is becoming available in farms and petting zoos all around the world.
A Caprine Vinyasa session typically includes beginner poses, and is meant for people of all skill levels. The goats make the yoga sessions more challenging, by attempting to distract you with unbelievably cute moves, and yes, sometimes standing on you mid-pose.
You're allowed to pet the goats if you like, but it is expected for you to carry on with your class and not to let them distract you too much. Some goat yoga classes even have tiny snacks available for you to give the goats after the lesson.
Goat yoga can spice up a regular exercise class, and even help you achieve better strength and focus. If you like the idea of getting closer to nature, look for a local goat yoga class in your neighborhood.
