You may have heard of doing yoga with animals, like cats or dogs, but now it looks like this type of fitness has gone to the farms.
It is called goat yoga and it's Pingree Farms latest fundraiser.
They hold yoga classes in Detroit with goats.
Holly Glomski is the manager of Highland Park's Pingree Farms.
"Perfect! It's a match made in heaven," she explained.
For $25 a class, you can "downward dog" in the presence of several goats.
They started off with only one class and quickly added five more.
"And it has spread like wildfire! Everybody wants to be a part of it," she said.
The class holds 20 yogis and about eight goats, that seem to enjoy the extra company.
"Goats are so social," Holly said. "They are little social butterflies. They wander around the room, playfully. Sniffing, jumping on, pawing, laying on someone's mat. They have a great way of interacting with all the participants."
Holly says goat yoga is a "really great way to connect with nature."
And if nature calls for one of the goats....
"Don't worry, we do have a clean up patrol with paper towels and cleaner if necessary."
Many of the classes have sold out, so they've added more:
- Saturday, April 29th: Classes at 10:00 am, 11:30 am, 1:30 pm, and 3:00 pm.
- Saturday, May 6th Classes at 10:00 am, 11:30 am, 1:30 pm, and 3:00 pm.
- Saturday, May 13th Classes at 10:00 am, 11:30 am, 1:30 pm, and 3:00 pm.
