Goat Yoga!? Tell me more….
Goat yoga blends the movements and stretching of yoga with the playful antics of live kid goats, born and raised here at Upland Hills Farm. Classes are taught by a certified yoga instructor from Repose llc. Take in the beautiful scenery, meet some lovely people, and enjoy snuggling these adorable goat babies.
