Thank you to everyone who participated in Goat Yoga in 2018. Classes are full and will end by September 1, 2018. Our goaty girls need some rest and relaxation before breeding season begins. Visit our website in the Spring of 2019 to register for Goat Yoga next year! Follow us on Facebook or sign up for our monthly Newsletter to be sure you are notified of future events.
Join us for a relaxing, stress-reducing, laughter-filled yoga experience with our Nigerian Dwarf Goats. Consider it Goats with a “Side of Yoga”.
Class length is 75 minutes. Participants will be introduced to “goat etiquette” before class begins. You will find the goats to be very friendly and non-aggressive.
Goats may lay next to you or on your mat with you. They may settle in your lap and yes, babies may jump on your back. Shirt-tails can be tugged, sandals may be nibbled. You WILL be investigated by these friendly animals.
If you happen to experience “goat pebbles” on your mat, (it’s good luck!) you will win a FREE BAR of Goat Milk Soap, which you can pick up in our Farm Store after class.
A CLEAN Porta-Potti restroom is available, and a natural hand sanitizer is also available.

About our Goats
Nigerian Dwarf Goats
During our yoga class you will meet our Nigerian Dwarf Goat babies and kids. They are friendly and curious animals.
Our goats do not bite or head butt. They love to hop from person to person and enjoy being a part of the yoga experience.
We use only the goats that are born and raised at Honey Sweetie Acres.
We treat our goats very well, and expect you will too. In April of 2017, Honey Sweetie Acres was inspected by, “Humane Farm Animal Care” and was successfully awarded “certified humane” status.
About the Yoga Class
You must preregister and prepay for the class.
If you have been given a Gift Card for a Goat Yoga class, call us to reserve your class time and bring the Gift Card to the class.
The yoga class is 1.5 hours and approximately the first 30 minutes are spent learning about and getting to know the goats as you settle into your mat.
The class is normally basic yoga, but the instructor will assess experience level and adjust accordingly. If you want to take a class with your child, check out our Teen & Me classes.
