The latest fitness sweeping the US has made is goat yoga, and yes this is actually a real thing. 

 

What the HELL is it, I hear you ask? 

 

Well, participants practice yoga while tiny goats amble around and sometimes cuddle with them, or jump on their back. 

 

 It was the brainchild of a freelance photographer and farm owner in the state of Oregan, Lainey Morse, who began hosting goat yoga classes last summer.

“My goats are just very peaceful animals and everyone that comes over leaves stress free and happy," she explained to Modern Farmer. "When they chew their cud it’s almost like they go into a meditative state and it’s very soothing to watch and it’s perfect to combine with yoga.”

 

The activity is something that has a growing following across the pond with Lainey reporting a 1200 person waiting list for her classes.

 

Lainey's Goat Yoga events are now held at farms in central Oregon at a cost of $30 for a one-hour session, and $20 for students.

That compares with $11 to $17 for a 90-minute regular non-goat yoga class in the same area.

 

Combo goat yoga/wine tastings (AMAZING) book for $75 a pop, and that sounds like the perfect way to spend.

 

Most dates are sold out over the next few weeks, and those that are still available have only a few openings.

So we will either be moving to Oregon, or setting up our very own goat yoga business right here.
