      Goat Yoga with Christine Reed and Karla Simmons

      Goat yoga has taken the holistic wellness & integrative therapy world by storm. One word to describe yoga is union; we practice together as one in nature with other animals, gently stretching, opening up our minds and hearts. Many people jokingly ask if the goats will be doing yoga too, well, in a way yeah.In mindfulness practice the muscle that is strengthened is awareness, or concentration. The inclusion of the playful, adorable kids serves as a tool to strengthen that muscle. Typically after a yoga practice one will often experience this same euphoric feeling you felt when you first watched the goat yoga video. Perhaps this is because you have disconnected with your daily stresses and enjoyed doing yoga in union with nature. So if you look at it this way it becomes clear how goats and yoga are another perfect match!Classes are now open for enrollment.
