So Cute We Can’t Even: 🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐 8/10
Every once in awhile somebody comes along and has a genius idea on how to enhance the regular yoga experience.
Goat Yoga is officially a thing, and whilst it sounds like it involves the adorable animals doing some stretches and getting some exercise in, is actually a whole lot funnier and a whole lot cuter than you would expect.
Say hello to your new favourite yoga buddy
As if the challenge of bending this way and that wasn’t difficult enough, Goat Yoga involves participants doing the usual stretches with the addition of baby goats jumping up and down your body as you do.
According to CNN, Lainey Morse started the class at her farm in Oregon, after jokingly saying that if she were to hold a yoga class, her goats would have to join in.
And so they did. And it was grand.
Excuse me Miss
Morse owns eight goats who feature as regular guests/assistants at her classes, gently tugging at loose hoodie strings, supplying a lick here and there, or even falling asleep on students as they attempt the downward dog. Predictably, the adorable yoga classes have now become incredibly popular, with a 1200 person waitlist to even get a spot.
Don’t mind me just exploring up here
Whilst there have been some fairly obvious concerns (goat poop on a yoga mat, anyone?), Morse’s classes have proven benefits beyond farm animal fecal matters. She tells CNN, “It may sound silly, but goat yoga is really helping people… People come in that have anxiety, depression; they’re recovering from cancer or illness. It’s not curing diseases, but it’s helping people cope with whatever they’re going through.”
Wanna know a secret?
Understandably so, how many times has cuddling a cute animal lessened some of your stresses?
Okay now hold this position!!!
Goat Yoga. Potentially the G.O.A.T Yoga.
And if goats aren’t quite your animal of choice, have you heard of the Doggy Workout?
