WHAT IS GOAT YOGA?

Goat Yoga is exactly what is sounds like – Yoga with Goats! These classes are designed to be a fun and unique way to tap into your zen with the help of our baby goats. Our goats love people, cuddling and will help motivate and challenge you to engage in mindfulness as they jump from back to back!

About the Yoga

What type of Yoga is practiced?

Our Goat Yoga is an all-levels Hatha Yoga.

Where is the class held?

Classes are held both indoors and outdoors depending on the weather. We recommend bringing a light jacket or shawl for Savasna

What do I need to bring?

Please bring your own yoga mat and a water bottle. You can also bring a towel to lay under your mat if you prefer. Dress according to the weather, with whatever is comfortable for you. Expect to get dirty, as we are on a farm after all. It may be chilly inside the barn so we recommend bringing a sweater too.

Where do I check in?

Once parked, please check in and sign our fitness waiver inside the market. Our staff will then be on hand to direct you to our Wedding Barn/Goat Yoga Studio.

How long is the yoga practice?

The yoga practice will be 60 minutes.

Is there an age limit?

Anyone 14+ is welcome at Goat Yoga! Please note, participants must sign a waiver before the class. If a participant is under 19 years old, a parent or guardian must sign the waiver.

I'm pregnant, can I still participate in Goat Yoga?

Our instructors can provide variations for you. We’d recommend coming a bit earlier and chatting with our instructors so they can suggest modifications. If you already practice yoga, Goat Yoga will not pose any problems (pun intended). If this is your first class, we recommend taking prenatal yoga classes that are catered to expecting mothers. Always speak to your prenatal caregiver about what is best for you and your baby.

About the Event

Can I buy tickets at the door

No, tickets are pre-sold and available online only.

Can I bring my family and friends to take pictures of me during the class?

No, Goat Yoga is a reservation only class. This is due to the limited space availability and to ensure we respect the privacy of other participants.

Can my children play on the farm while I'm doing Goat Yoga?

Maan Farms’ policy requires every child be supervised by a parent or guardian while on our properties. Parents and children must purchase daily admissions tickets to enter (or your Seasons Pass).

Is Goat Yoga included in my Seasons Pass?

No, Goat Yoga tickets are separate. BUT your Seasons Pass does get you 10% off Goat Yoga (and other featured events) tickets.

Can I participate in the farm activities after the event?

Yes! Every Goat Yoga ticket includes admission to our Barnyard Adventureland (7 farm activities).

Is there a place to eat?

Yes! We have a wide selection of homemade authentic meals from our country kitchen.

Will Maan Farms' wine tasting room be open?

Of course! Please bring two pieces of valid IDs.

What methods of payment do you accept?

In our market we accept cash, debit, Visa, and Mastercard in our market. Please be advised Goat Yoga tickets are pre-sold and available online only.

About the Goats

Is there time to see the goats before or after?

Yes, there will be half an hour after the practice for some uninterrupted goat socializing, and of course, goat selfies.

Are your goats trained?

No, but they are gentle creatures. They can be unpredictable and spontaneous at times and we will have staff on hand to ensure you feel comfortable and safe.

Will the Goats wear diapers?

Our goats are not potty trained and will behave like true farm animals. This experience is kept as organic as possible to ensure we provide everyone with an authentic experience. With that said, expect the goats to pee and poop during the class.

Goat poop looks like small pellets, it’s not messy and all you have to do is shake it off your mat. It doesn’t happen all that often, but it does happen. We will have staff on hand with paper towels to clean up during the class, so just raise your hand and let us know!

Why Goat Yoga?

Our goal is to provide a wellness experience rooted in agriculture that cultivates a deeper connection with yourself and Mother Nature.
