Idea Fair

Goat Yoga

Show Stopper Award Winner

How has this idea enhanced your club's operation, etc.?

How ridiculous does this sound? The goal of yoga is to relax the mind and stretch out your tension. Add in 5 goats and there is a recipe for a good time. On a summer Sunday morning, our members signed up for a 1 hour yoga session that included real goats and a professional yoga instructor. Goats would bounce from person to person and our members couldn’t contain their laughter! Goat yoga is something so atypical and proved to be a crowd favorite. We saw countless photos of people aged 8 to 58 enjoying this event, and their smiles demonstrated how special this event was.

How was this idea implemented, and what have been the club members' reactions?

We utilized a local company called “Jams Yoga”, that essentially hired a professional yoga instructor and brought a trailer full of goats; they also provided the yoga mats, cleaning materials, and safety waivers. Our members simply had to show up and do the downward dog with a goat. We also recruited this company to have yoga sessions during our Fall Festival, and people were thrilled at the opportunity to do this!
