Here’s Why Goat Yoga is the Latest Fitness Craze

We’ve seen numerous crazy fitness trends, but this one is definitely one for the books. If you follow the latest news on Instagram, you probably already know that goat yoga is a thing. But are you familiar with why this workout suddenly became so popular?

It all started back in 2016 at a farm in Willamette Valley, Oregon. The owner was getting ready to celebrate her birthday by inviting a yoga instructor, who got the amazing idea to include goats. Now, three years later, it’s a class that has thousands of people on waiting lists.

What Is Goat Yoga?

The main question is is this any different from regular yoga? You’ll be surprised to hear that it’s not. You’ll be doing the same poses, just in the presence of cute goats.

Goats love interacting with people and will climb anything at any time. The whole beauty of the class is that you’ll be laughing so hard and completely forget about any worries or anxiety. At the same time, the cute animals will make the yoga class a bit more demanding. Classes usually take half an hour, and you should try finding one that is near you.
