Frequently Asked Questions for Goat Yoga
Why is Goat Yoga so appealing?
Most of us live in urban areas with little access to green spaces and animal interactions. We either don’t have the time, budget or energy to jump in the car and look for some nature oasis where we can socialize and learn new things about animals while we relax.
Goat Yoga invites people to take a break from the city life and enjoy a natural, peaceful retreat. Yoga is a thousand years old tool for relaxation, mind and body harmony so there is no question about the benefits that yoga will bring to you. Combine yoga with a group of baby goats and you have a relaxing time in union with nature and a good laugh guaranteed.
What type of goats are in the goat yoga class?
Among the beautiful and healthy goats of common breeds, Barnyard Buddies also has the funny and interesting Fainting Goat breed. They give the best care and harmonious nurturing to the Miniature Fainting Goat breed, which is also IFGA certified. This particular breed faints because they have a genetic condition, totally harmless to them, called “myotonia congenital” which causes them to freeze when they are excited or startled. At Barnyard Buddies Farm, you will see them playing and having fun and sometimes…fainting. Barnyard Buddies is proud of their happy, fun-loving herd!
When you commit to a yoga practice in nature, surrounded by playful baby fainting goats, you are 100% convinced that you will have a wonderful time.
Why do we support the Goat Yoga movement?
We live in a fast-consuming world. We are hasty in relationships, we hurry to our workplace, we run to eat, and we hurry our children to play and so on. The team at Barnyard Buddies and OmKai Yoga believes that the “Goat Yoga” movement can bring peace and rest to our speed-up lives. During Goat Yoga we take time for ourselves and we also learn to pay attention to important aspects around us: nature, animals, friends and family. Since we spend most of our time in nature, around animals, we are 100% sure of the benefits of the “Goat Yoga” and we can only invite you to give it a try.
Are there any more tickets available?
Unfortunately, once the class is sold-out there are no more tickets available. We limit the number of people per class to ensure everyone has the best time and are able to connect with the goats. We will be having even more classes weekly in 2018 though so there will be plenty of classes!
Is there a waitlist?
I do not have a waitlist for class. I usually find out about cancellations last minute so when that does happen I post on my Facebook page under the event!
What should I wear to Goat Yoga?
Keep in mind that classes are in a hay barn or out in the goat pen so wear clothes you don’t mind a little farm dirt, mud, and hay getting on. Also, goat accidents do happen so keep that in mind.
What is the age limit for class?
Goat yoga is for ages 8+. If you are under 18, you must be accompanied by an adult so they can sign your liability waiver.
Is this class for all-levels?
Yes, this class is great whether this is your first yoga class or if you are a regular yogi. This class is designed to be a grounding flow so that you can connect with the goats as much as possible.
