Flanders Nature Center in Woodbury, Connecticut has announced several upcoming dates for goat yoga sessions at their North Barn. Come stretch, laugh, and cuddle with the goats at a yoga session you will find both relaxing and exhilarating at the same time and are not soon to forget!
Classes are scheduled for Sunday, August 12th at 10AM as well as Sunday, September 9th at 10AM and Sunday, September 16th at 9AM. Experienced yoga instructors will be leading guests during these one-hour gentle yoga classes which are suitable for all ages. Adorable Nigerian dwarf goats will be frolicking & cuddling with guests as they flow through gentle poses at the picturesque Flanders farm.
Participants should keep in mind that they’ll be practicing with live animals and some degree of messiness (and a LOT of silliness) may be involved so they should dress accordingly, wearing comfortable clothes and bringing along a yoga mat or towel.
The programs will be held at the Flanders North Barn which is located at 644 Flanders Road in Woodbury just beyond the intersection of Flanders and Church Hill Road. The cost is $20 for members and $25 for non-members for adults and $10 for ages 15 and under accompanied by an adult. Rain cancels the classes. Check the Flanders facebook page for any weather announcements. Guests will have the option of attending a rescheduled date or a refund.
Proceeds of goat yoga go to the Flanders farming program. Space is limited and those interested need to register online at http://www.flandersnaturecenter.org or call 203-263-3711, ext. 10, for more information.
