You Can Now Do Goat Yoga And It Looks So Much Fun

You Can Now Do Goat Yoga And It Looks So Much Fun

We've had bunny rabbit yoga, kitten yoga and even alpaca yoga, but this is the first time we've heard of goat yoga on the Tyla team - what is this sorcery?

Turns out, little baby goats love nothing more than to get involved whilst you downwards dog around them, even clambering onto your back.

White Post Farm in Nottingham offers the class run by Polly Wiltshire (who owns goats herself) and it is the third consecutive year it has done so.

The class is just like any other yoga session, but with the added fun of little baby goats surrounding you and who may or may not climb aboard. Cute!

The trend of goat yoga has actually long been a hit across the pond in the US too, with celebs like Kate Beckinsale posting snaps of her taking part in a session.

It may sound niche, but believe it or not, some of the sessions of yoga are already sold out. However, you can snap up tickets here for 3rd and 10th May, 7th and 14th June and 5th and 12th July.

You'll pay £15 per ticket for the class, or book two tickets together for £26 (saving £2 per person) - just make sure whoever comes with you is aged five or older.

Polly first decided to approach White Post Farm about sessions after playing with her own goats and seeing the "joy they found in interacting" with her as she moved, according to her website.

And while yoga itself will benefit the person practising by strengthening and stretching, Polly explains adding goats bopping around into the equation brings more mindfulness to the practice, as well as therapeutic benefits of being around animals.

She adds on her site that the goats are happy too: "The goats are having a good time just being... goaty, they choose to engage or not engage with the participants.

"They can climb on us, charge around, sit down with us... or just stand and eat (and poo!)."

Sounded great until she reminded us they'll probably poop around us.

Ahh well, animals will be animals after all.
