Goat Yoga

Thank you for joining us this year for goat yoga. Our season is now over. We are so thankful we were able to provide a fun and safe activity during the pandemic. We look forward to next season.  Next year’s schedule will be posted closer next spring. For now, follow us on Facebook and Instagram to get a daily dose of goats. 

Thank you so much! 

General FAQ’s-

  • Q- When does goat yoga start?  
    Answer-  June 2021!
  • Q- Is it held rain or shine? Answer- Yes. We hold classes under our picnic pavilion outside. There are protective sides that make the area weatherproof. If the weather is severe, classes will be canceled. You’ll be issued a full refund or change of date.
  • Q- Can my children attend a regular goat yoga class? 
    Answer- We suggest the Family Goat Yoga class for children ages 5-11.  This class is more focused on goat cuddling than yoga. Family goat yoga class is also shorter to help with children’s attention span. Children/teenagers older than 12 can participate in regular yoga. If you want to bring your children to a regular goat yoga class we ask that they stay seated and follow instructions for the entire yoga class.

What to Bring and Wear:

  • Camera- This will be an hour you’ll want to remember! A photographer will be at every session taking complimentary pictures. After each class there will be a short time to cuddle and take even more selfies with the goats.
  • Wear a mask. Our goats head butt those not wearing masks. (we’re only kidding) The situation is changing rapidly, but as of now, masks are required.
  • Wear clothes you don’t mind getting messy or having nibbled on by goats. For the best experience, wear a shirt with sleeves made of non-slippery material. Little goat hooves have more traction on fabric than skin, and silky materials make it hard for goats to stand still.
  • A hair tie! Our pygmy goats aspire to be hairdressers when they grow up. They will nibble on your hair! To prevent this from happening we suggest you put your hair up.

What Not To Bring:

  • A yoga mat. Last year we found out that our goats love to chew yoga mats! As much as they love yoga mats, yoga mats are not part of a healthy diet. We do however have protective flooring that will cushion your knees. We have mats available if anyone should require more padding.
  • Don’t bring a water bottle that will spill when a goat knocks it over. Once you step inside yoga area, you’ve lost all personal space. Our goats will jump over you and crawl under you. They have been known to drink from water bottles and knock them over. The older the goats get the more mischievous they become.
  • Don’t wear a new fancy yoga tank top. You want your back to be as covered as possible. These little goats have hooves and don’t make it to the nail salon too often. (P.S. We would love to see previous goat yogi attendees in their Goat Yoga shirt from last year!) 

What to Expect:

  • You should expect to have SO. MUCH. FUN.
  • Be prepared to laugh and smile for an entire hour.
  • Expect to cuddle with baby pygmy goats.
  • Our goats are living creatures… which means they pee and poo. Expect some accidents to happen, but don’t worry.. we have goat handlers that will clean up the mess! (if you get peed on more than 3 times you get a free shirt!)

 

What Not to Expect:

  • Please do not come to Goat Yoga expecting to have an intense yoga workout. All our instructors practice a gentle, beginner’s yoga. Please do not feel intimidated if you’ve never done yoga. You are more than welcome to sit on your mat and play with the goats the entire class.

GOAT-A-THON!

We would like to thank each and every one of those who attended our Goat Baby shower Goat-A-Thon on May 18th 2019. With your help, we were able to exceed our goal of $5,000 and raise a total of $8,000 for our non-profits! We were thrilled to see all your happy faces and we are so thankful you helped us support Lancaster non-profits. This year due to the coronavirus we canceled the event. We hope to support local non-profits and throw our baby goats the biggest baby shower in 2021!
