Goat Yoga Is a Thing and It’s Perfect

In Albany, Oregon, there’s a farm where you can attend a yoga class surrounded by friendly goats! The creator of the class, Lainey Morse, says that her goats are all very friendly and they would sit and lie down next to everyone, providing a unique, relaxing experience.

Morse got the idea from a yoga instructor who attended a birthday party hosted at her farm. She was unsure how attendees would react to having goats all around them during a workout, but the class turned out to be a big hit.

“My goats are just very peaceful animals and everyone that comes over leaves stress-free and happy. When they chew their cud it’s almost like they go into a meditative state and it’s very soothing to watch and it’s perfect to combine with yoga,” Morse said.

The idea has already spread and there are many yoga classes that include goats. Would you try it?
