It’s a little crazy, but downright fun to have goats scamper under you while in downward dog.
For our latest Fitness SEEN episode, the I team traveled to Hilltop Views Farm in Williamston to try Original Goat Yoga. Hilltop Views Farm, owned by Shawn Cannarile, is one of a dozen locations around the country that offers Original Goat Yoga.
Cannarile started by adopting two goats, Petunia and Oakley, and soon grew her goat family to 10 hooved kids.
“Yoga is a passion of ours, and goats are a passion of ours,” she says. “We opened this space in a 100-year-old barn and thought it would be fun to share with the community.”
Since opening a year ago, about 1,500 people have come through the barn doors to try table pose — with goats jumping on their back.
Want to try it yourself? Classes are held May to December. You must be at least 8 years old to attend. Sign up at lansingmichigan.goatyoga.net.
