Get the most out of your
Goat Yoga Bham experience...
Our goats live on our working farm and enjoy a free range lifestyle filled with cuddles, sweet feed, fresh hay, and lots of yoga. They are used to love and attention and tend to jump and frolic on peoples backs as well as cuddle up when in a zen, trusted environment.
Our goats are a mixture of dam raised and bottle fed and grow up by their mother's side after birth. They are peaceful animals and are excited and curious to meet new people. We do ask that participants keep a peaceful, warm, and focused environment during the practice. This will not only help you reap personal yoga benefits, but will also develop a sense of trust with the goats as they warm up to the energy of a new person.
It is hard not to turn your head around to summon a goat over during class, but we have found that participants who create this discipline for themselves also tend to be the biggest "goat magnets" during class. There is nothing better than enjoying the mutual benefit of farm therapy as you work to flow through your practice in nature's fresh air.
Does it SMELL?
Not at ALL! Billy goats (mature boys) can have a musky smell when they are courting the ladies, however, all of our "Kids" are girls and/or wethered goats. The Goat Yoga pen is ONLY used for Goat Yoga, otherwise the goats free range and sleep in their home pen. Before each class, fresh hay is put down, and the goats parade down to the yoga pen for classes. All there is to smell is the beautiful fresh air!
Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?
If you have a change of ticket name please send us a message on www.goatyogabham.com or on our Facebook page @GOAT YOGA BHAM and we can make note of the change.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No need to print your ticket! We will check you in by name just prior to the beginning of class.
What should I bring?
*Camera/Phone for pics *Water Bottled with a tight lid *Bug Spray *Sunscreen
Is there parking at the farm?
Yes, we have parking. Carpooling is always appreciated since our parking area is limited.
All ages are welcome at the farm, however, we recommend Goat Yoga for children 10+.
Can children participate in Goat Yoga?
But don't they poop and pee?
That's right, they do! This is a working farm, and sometimes you gotta go!!. However, the gated pen we use for goat yoga is only used for the hour of goat yoga. There are only 1-2 sessions per day and before and after each session, the area is cleaned and fresh hay is laid before the arrival of the next class. There is also someone monitoring the class for clean ups. The best advice we can give is to wear clothes that are appropriate and then just go with the (yoga) flow!
What is the rain policy?
Because we use fresh hay that is extremely absorbent, all yoga classes will practice on.... UNLESS it has/or is currently raining two hours prior to the beginning of class. Two hours prior to the event we will assess the weather conditions. If the session is cancelled, we will notify all individuals that reserved tickets via the email and or cell number used to reserve the tickets and all reservations for that day will receive a rain check to be used at a future class. In addition, if thunder or lightning happens during a class, the class will be canceled and all participants will receive a rain check.
What if a goat doesn't come up to me?
Our goats are very used to people and are very likely to cuddle, brush by you, frolic past, or even jump from back to back! While we cannot guarantee this will happen to every yogi, we can tell you that the more focused you are in the practice on your poses within your environment, that the goats will be drawn to you. And you'll also reap more benefits!
Do I need to bring a mat or a towel?
Each class registration includes a mat rental. However, you are welcome to bring your own mat or towel to place over the mat that is provided. Our mats are sanitized after each use.
How can I buy a T-shirt?
T shirts are sold for $20 at the end of each Goat Yoga class! Forgot to buy a shirt? No biggie! Shirts are also available for purchase on our website!
Can I take pictures?
Absolutely! And no worries if you didn't get that perfect pic during class...there will be plenty of time for photos and snuggles after class!
Do you book parties or events?
We do! Email email@example.com and introduce yourself and your event! We will be happy to send you all the details!
What should I wear?
We recommend wearing movement/exercise clothes and shoes that you wouldn't mind getting a little dirty. As we don't expect dirt and grit, this is a working farm and we would hate for your new leggings to get messy. Be sure to dress appropriately for the weather since the yoga class is outside in a clean but natural pasture. Please note that tank tops are not recommended because goats have hooves that can be slightly rough on bare skin. T-shirts, Nike shorts, yoga pants, workout tops, joggers are all great options!
