They came, they saw and yes, they goat out of hand.
Nearly 100 yoga enthusiasts turned out for Sarnia’s introduction to goat yoga, and the trendy take on the exercise craze showed it wasn’t all baaaaaad.
In fact, goat yoga was exactly as advertised. People got together for three successive yoga sessions at Degroot’s Nurseries on March 11, and a small menagerie of goats mingled and gambled about, jumping up on participants, tugging on hair, posing for selfies and nibbling on feet.
“The yoga students had a great time (and) the feedback was fabulous,” said organizer Stephanie Cook of Farmgirl Fitness, whose Watford-area farm is home to more than a dozen goats.
“Everyone enjoyed themselves and many wanted to take the goats home with them.”
Cook, whose Farmgirl Fitness is on Facebook, said she’s planning to hold more goat yoga sessions both in Sarnia and at her Watford farm.
