A truly therapeutic workout for the mind, body and soul, guaranteed to help you smile on the inside (and out, until your face hurts!!). Staying true to the teachings of yoga, this class aims to relax and revitalise the body whilst boosting and uplifting your mood.
During our yoga session together, we will practice animal-themed asanas and deepen our connection with the animal kingdom, offering us lessons in love and compassion for ourselves and those around us.
Kid Goat Cuddles and Cow Hugs are guaranteed, along with epidemic proportions of smiling – Who can resist settling into a downward facing dog with the cutest upward facing baby goat peeking up at you?
Benefits of Goat Yoga: These fun and therapeutic sessions combine the physical and emotional benefits of yoga, laughter and animal therapy; such as reduced cortisol (stress response) and increased endorphins (natural painkillers), dopamine & oxytocin (happy hormones).
Abilities: All abilities welcome.
Included: Each session includes arrival refreshments, a one-hour yoga class (suitable for all levels), lots of cuddles and Selfies with the friendly, sociable, kid goats plus a meet and greet with some of the other farm animals. Prepare yourself for cuteness overload!
Excluded: Please bring warm clothing (preferably clothing you don’t mind being nibbled by the goats!), and a yoga mat (preferably an old mat rather than a new or expensive one!) and/or a beach towel (or two, if you would like a little warm/ extra cushioning on the barn floor).
Optional Add-On: You will also have the opportunity of joining the farmer at Dartington Dairy, at 16.30pm for an exciting Goat Milking Experience. Afterwards, visit the farm shop and purchase delicious Dartington Dairy milk, ice cream and kefir products.
Milking Experience add-on cost: £10.00 p/adult (special Goat Yoga price).
