There’s Now a Retreat Where You Can Do Yoga With Goats

No, we’re not taking the goat; apparently goat yoga is an actual thing now. Located at the No Regrets Farm in Willamette Valley, Oregon, the Goat Yoga retreat was set up by former professional photographer Lainey Morse, who had decided to take a step back from her career and set up a new business based around the farm she owned. So, when a local yoga instructor asked if she could hold some classes at the farm Lainey thought that it would be a great opportunity. And so began goat yoga! “I think it really came along at a time when everyone is tired of hearing about politics and all the bad in the world,” says Morse. “People are coming from other States to the next Goat Yoga; I have a huge wait list and the rainy season is about to start in Oregon so everyone might just have to wait until Spring because my last 2 classes are booked up. “I really envision having Goat Yoga retreats now and people can come from all over the World…It really is a wonderful unique experience.” And whilst some may laugh at this latest yoga “craze”, Morse goes onto explain how one participant, who had recently finished her chemo and radiation therapy, “bawled through the whole class” because she had found the experience such a healing wonderful experience. “It may sound silly but it's really just about getting outside in nature with beautiful scenery and having animals around you….animals can really help humans with stress and illness or grief.” Those interested in learning more about goat yoga can check out the farm’s Facebook page at Your Daily Goat under https://www.facebook.com/Yourdailygoat.

IF you’re getting bored of all the deep breathing and umming of your morning yoga session you may want to try adding something different.

Some people opt for the high temperatures of bikram and we’ve even seen aerial yoga suspended from the ceiling but one American farm has taken the craze one step further.
