Relax

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, a hand washing station with a chemical free liquid hand soap is readily available.  In addition, a natural hand sanitizer can also be provided.

  • 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 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.

    Our new online Gift Cards have a code that can be applied on the website for registration.  If you have any difficulties, please let us know. It is a new process, but is designed to be easy.

    The yoga class is 75 minutes and the first few minutes are spent learning about and getting to know the goats as you settle into your mat.

    The class is normally a very basic yoga, but the instructor will assess experience level and adjust accordingly. If you want to take a class with your child, they must be at least 10 years of age.  We have non-yoga classes for younger children, however a parent must be present.
