Goat Yoga is Back at Mattapoisett Farm
What's better than doing yoga with a bunch of baby goats? Not only is goat yoga trendy, Instagram-worthy and fun, but it's actually proven to be good for your health, and dates are now available on the SouthCoast!
Pine Meadow Alpacas in Mattapoisett announced the goat yoga events on its Facebook page earlier this week, giving SouthCoast residents four opportunities throughout the month of May to connect with their inner zen (and get some up close and personal time with the farm's new goats.
Goat yoga sessions are available on May 4 and 11 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. and on May 29 from 10 to 11 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Bea Whalin, a certified yoga instructor from Plymouth, will be teaching all of the sessions and guiding participants through simple yoga poses. No experience is needed.
Classes are $25 per person and spots can be reserved by messaging Pine Meadow Alpacas through Facebook Messenger. At least six people must be signed up for a class for it to happen.
Pine Meadow is right in the heat of kidding season and has welcomed a bunch of babies to the farm in recent weeks, and these babies are so spunky and cute. You certainly don't want to miss out on the chance to hang out with them.
On top of goat yoga being super trendy and absolutely adorable, there are actually some health benefits to striking a pose with these baby goats as well. Not only are you reaping the benefits of regular yoga when you partake in goat yoga, but you're also going to get some pretty high levels of serotonin from all that smiling and laughing you're bound to do.
Can you say baaaaa-maste?
