Goat yoga has become a popular activity at Flanders Nature Center & Land Trust and this month Flanders Nature Center in Woodbury will be holding two September morning sessions of goat yoga especially for preschoolers and their caretakers so they too can get in on the fun! Adorable Nigerian dwarf goats will be frolicking & cuddling with your child at this one-hour gentle stretch and movement outdoor class held at the picturesque Van Vleck Farm.
Please keep in mind that you’ll be practicing with live animals and some degree of messiness (and a LOT of silliness) may be involved! Dress yourselves and your child accordingly and bring along a yoga mat or towel to sit on.
In the case of inclement weather, there will be an art project, story, or age appropriate barnyard activity held inside the barn instead.
Preschool goat yoga sessions are being held on Monday, September 17 and 24th. Activities will be based at the Flanders North Barn located at 644 Flanders Road in Woodbury from 9:30 to 10:30. Pre-registration is required. The cost is $10 for child and caregiver for those who are Flanders members and $20 for non-members with proceeds supporting the farming program.
Space is limited so those interested must register online at http://www.flandersnaturecenter.org or call 203-263-3711, ext. 10, for more information.
Presented as a unique opportunity for all young children to experience and learn about farm animals close up, the program is just one of the preschool program offerings held at Flanders Nature Center & Land Trust during the year. You can find a full listing of all the programs for kids and adults by visiting their website or on their Facebook page.
