If you’re a yoga fanatic, you’ve probably herd NamastHay Goat Yoga is back for their fall edition. But for those of you that haven’t, you’re in for a real treat especially if you dig animals or the yoga scene.
It’s basically the best of both worlds, and the perfect compliment to your cat-cow.
Where the grass is greener
The goats have been busy working all summer—they maintain grassy areas on treacherous Pittsburgh hillsides—and now they’re ready to chill. You’ll be downward dogging and saluting the sun in the middle of a field at Potential Farm in Presto, PA (near Bridgeville), really the best place to chill with goats.
What do goats have to do with yoga? Not much of anything. But animals make everything better, so why not? We guess you could thank Jen’s Zen Yoga and Have You Herd Goatscaping for giving us the experience.
While you are getting down with your flow, these dwarf goats will be the best workout buddies you’ve ever had. Or maybe the best distraction. Don’t be afraid to give them a pet, or mentally wander off from class (and life) if they come your way. They love to play!
Class begins at 2pm on Saturday, September 22 and will last about an hour. It’s a BYOM event, and you might want to bring a towel to keep the goats from nibbling your mat. Admission is $20 and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the FurKid Rescue. Plus, kiddos between 4–10 are admitted free with a paid adult.
All the extra things
If you love your NamastHay experience (and we know you will), there will be a second event offered on Saturday, October 20. But this one will benefit the Angel Ridge Animal Rescue.
And because we know you’re wondering: both classes will have a port-a-potty on site and plenty of vendors and gear — tons of goat gear. Make sure to chat it up with Curly Tail Coffee Co., Goat Charm Chakra jewelry by Rainy Laux, and more while you’re out there.
We promise you’ll leave feeling like a kid again (that’s a goat joke), relaxed, and maybe with a few new friends (two-legged and four-legged)!
