Cute and Energetic, Goats Make the Perfect Yoga Buddy! See What We Mean This Weekend

Goat Yoga Texas invites you to enjoy a fun and unique experience under the beautiful Texas sky as we take yoga practice to the next level.... with a herd of cuddly miniature goats! That’s right – get ready for a goat yoga session at Murdoch’s Backyard this Saturday, beginning at 10:00 a.m.!

Goats were one of the first animals, alongside dogs, to be domesticated by humans. Human-goat interaction is not only one of the longest running human-animal partnerships on the planet, but a mutually beneficial relationship with measurable health benefits. In recent decades, farm animal therapy has been shown to help with everything from ADHD and autism to mental illness and hypertension. So, when the opportunity to put a herd of rescued baby goats in a Yoga corral fell into her lap after Hurricane Harvey, it just seemed to make sense to teacher Kimberly Brooke.

What started with six, tiny week-old baby goats rescued after Hurricane Harvey has blossomed into a happy, cuddly herd of 15 miniature therapy goats just waiting to greet you on your yoga mat, climb on your back, or fall asleep in your arms while you expand your yoga practice. Whether you are a seasoned yogi or this is your first time on a yoga mat, come and experience the most unique and joyous activity the city has to offer.

Classes feature 45 minutes of yoga for all levels led by certified teacher and health coach Kimberly Brooke, followed by 30 minutes of photos and baby goat snuggles. We teach a breath-centered, meditative Hatha class, perfect for first-time yogis or seasoned pros. It can be as challenging as you want to make it.

All registered participants in public weekend classes must be at least 12 years of age to participate in Goat Yoga, and those under 18 must have a parent/legal guardian supervising and on-site at all times. Please bring a yoga mat or a big beach towel. Registration is $29 per person, plus applicable fees. Please register in advance at www.ventbrite.com. For more information, please call 281-732-7833.
