Frequently Asked Questions

What is goat yoga?

Goat yoga, affectionately known as goga, is just as it sounds--practicing yoga while several cute and cuddly goats run around and jump on you. It probably won't be the most focused yoga class that you've tried, but it will be fun and memorable!

How do I register for goat yoga?

Visit the registration page and select the date that you'd like to participate.

 

Do I have to do yoga?

No, some people prefer to sit on their mat and snuggle goats. We ask that anyone not participating in yoga remain on their mat until the class is over. 

 

Where does goat yoga take place?

In warm weather, goat yoga is held in a grassy area near the barn. There is plenty of room to spread out! If it's raining, we'll move class inside to the top of our barn. During the colder months, we'll be inside the top of the barn.

Will you cancel class if it's raining or cold?

No, we will not cancel. We'll move class inside of our historic barn. Built in 1843, has a large semi-heated space in the top where we can hold classes. 

What should I wear to goat yoga?

We suggest dressing comfortably and for the weather. You may get dirty, so we suggest wearing clothes that can get dirty.

Do I need my own yoga mat?

Yes, you will need to bring your own yoga mat or towel. 

 

Will the goats poop on my mat or on me?

Occasionally goats will poop on your mat. They have pooped on people, but it's rare. Fortunately they have small pellets that aren't stinky and can be shaken off easily. We have a sink available inside the barn to wash your hands, and also hand sanitizer and Lysol wipes at the class location. Goats are farm animals and their bathroom habits cannot be trained like dogs or cats.

 

Do the goats bite?

Goats like to nibble. It's their way of trying to see if something is good to eat. It's possible they will try to nibble on hair, clothes, zippers, shoestrings, etc. Our goats do not intentionally bite. 

 

Do the goats headbutt?

Sometimes the goats will play and headbutt each other, but not humans. 

 

Do the goats have horns?

Some do. Most of the goats selected for goat yoga are either polled (born without horns) or disbudded (horns removed shortly after birth). We do have some with horns, but they are very sweet and gentle to people.
 

Are children permitted in class?

For certain classes when indicated. Otherwise, classes are for ages 18 and older.

Can I bring a friend/family member/pet to watch my class?
Only participants registered for class are permitted at the farm—please do not bring spectators, unregistered participants or pets to class. 

Do you offer refunds?

Refunds are not issued if participants cancel or do not show up for their scheduled class. Refunds will be issued if we cancel class.

Will you transfer my reservation if I miss class?

Class registration is non-refundable and non-transferrable. We do not offer transfers to another class if a participant cancels or does not show up for their scheduled class.

 

Do you offer private goat yoga events?

Yes! A minimum of 25 participants is needed to hold a private class. Visit the group booking page for more information and dates.
