Goat Yoga @ The Saratoga Winery
Ticket sales began August 29th and admission is limited so book early the August event sold out! Are you ready to pair a little vinyasa with a bit of vino and goats again for the end of this season? Come join the herd from Into The Woods Farm and NY Goat Yoga In The Woods and their yoga instructor Christine Riccio - RYT 500 once again or for the first time for a blend of gentle flow and vinyasa flow yoga in the beautiful fall weather. Then relax, take photos, snuggle the goats, and enjoy a complementary glass of wine or beer from our hosts at The Saratoga Winery
The yoga portion will last approximately 45 minutes-1 hr with the goats wandering around among the guests. We ask that all guests stay on their mats for the yoga portion of the event and not chase or follow the goats to allow everyone the opportunity to have the goats near them. After yoga there will be time for goat snuggling, photos, questions and information, drinks on the patio and interacting with the goats.
A triple threat to de-stress Goats, Yoga and Nature! Goat Yoga In The Woods NY is a great way to break from your normal mindset and reap the benefits of animal/laughter therapy and yoga! Open to yogis of every skill level, Goat Yoga In The Woods NY is not your typical yoga class but still a relaxing form of beginner level yoga that always involves smiles, laughter, giggles and of course, goats! Our Nigerian Dwarf Goat breed are just the right size to snuggle in your lap or take a nap on your mat as you move through our certified instructor, Chris Riccio’s guidance. Watch your cares melt away with every goat touch and kiss. Beyond trendy, goat yoga is here to stay as many find unexpected joy in being in the moment and presence of goats.
Goat yoga offers the many therapeutic benefits of animal and laughter therapy in a feel good, fun, yoga class... with adorable goats of all ages. Goat yoga allows guests to step outside of their everyday routine and remind them to not take life so seriously. See how the goats can help you connect with nature and how a soft touch from goat or two, is just the extra push you need in your practice. Anyone in the Goat Yoga area is considered a participant.
Into The Woods Farm herd has proven themselves as the perfect Goat Yoga ambassadors during their yoga debut sessions and various public events with children, adults and the elderly during 2016 thru 2019. From The Saratoga Winery, Vischer Ferry General Store, SingleCut Brewery events, to our benefit events and festivals to our more intimate Into The Woods Farm Goat Yoga and Wild Walks With The Goats, we have given many folks experiences to remember. All ticket sales go to filling the hay barn and maintenace and care of our little herd. Our Into The Woods & Under the Sky 4H kids volunteer their time to help wrangle the herd during our events.
What is Yoga with Goats aka Goat Yoga?
Goat Yoga in The Woods NY is about disconnecting with day to day stress, while some claiming it lowers blood pressure, helps with depression, reduces anxiety, and helps you to focus on positive and happy vibes. It really is next to impossible to stay serious when you see a goat do their little sideways hop or rear up when playing with their herdmates. It can be different things for different people. It has been described as “calm”, "therapy", “zen", and just plain “happiness.” However, there is one recurrent description…”unexpected.” Unexpected certainly describes goats. Then add in yoga and see what happens.
Goat Yoga in The Woods NY is Animal-Assisted Therapy in a natural setting with unexpectedly smart, social, and profoundly cuddly animals. It’s not a cancer cure, but it is an unbelievable distraction from politics, work, stress, sickness and depression. It began in Oregon with Lainey Morse in 2016 with The Original Goat Yoga and is now recognized across the country.
