Our 45 min-1h hour class will be taught by Christine Riccio - RYT 200 who offers a blend of gentle flow and vinyasa flow classes including the goats. CLASS MINIMUM is 10 people. After class there will be time for photos, and plenty of time for photos and interacting with the herd to see how they truly interact with you, their environment and each other. If you haven't smiled yet you will after watching their antics on their walk! Bring closed toed shoes for the walk and mingling in the runs with the goats.
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 2018. From The Saratoga Winery and Vischer Ferry general Store events, to our benefit events and festivals to our more intimate Into The Woods Farm 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.
