Goat Yoga

Goat Yoga is cancelled this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but will return next year. Check back later for more information! Here at Teshua Farms, the goal of Goat Yoga is to simply have fun in a peaceful farm setting—and play with some baby dwarf goats along the way. This is yoga at its easiest; no prior experience is needed, and the majority of our class time is devoted to coaxing confident kids (the goat variety) to climb on you when you’re in tabletop positions, child’s pose, and planks. Our baby Nigerian Dwarf goats join class when they’re typically between 2 and 6 months old, and weigh no more than 25 pounds, so the climbing adds more cuteness than strain. All ages are welcome! All of our goats have been raised on our farm and bottle-fed, so they are well-socialized and love people. Goat Yoga sessions each last an hour and are held on Saturdays, usually in the morning, and sometimes during the week. Please check our schedule for details. Classes proceed rain or shine—on pretty days, classes are held in our outdoor pasture, and our covered barn area provides comfort and shelter in other types of weather. Tickets for each class are $25 per person and include mat rental; we ask folks to sign a liability release on the day of class. Before and after class, visitors are welcome to visit the other animals in our petting zoo, which includes baby bunnies, ponies, and lambs. We have restroom facilities onsite, and visitors may also purchase “goatwear” at our farm store. Please reserve tickets in advance so we can anticipate class size. We also offer private and corporate events. Call 205.208.9259 or email us at teshuafarms@gmail.com for more information and to reserve dates.
