A new way of staying in shape while having a good laugh is gaining popularity just across the border in Wisconsin.
The new workout class just launched last month and combines yoga and adorable goats.
“Goat yoga” is being offered, at least one more weekend at Have Ya Herd farm in Roberts, Wisconsin, about half an hour east of the Twin Cities.
Goat yoga is still happening this Saturday and Sunday and maybe further into the season, depending on weather.
After their plans to add dairy goats to an existing 60-cow dairy fell through, Paul Lubich and his son and daughter-in-law, Kevin and Jessica Lubich, are finding themselves as not only dairy farmers, but yoga studio owners.
It was a below freezing Sunday morning in Roberts, Wisconsin. I had just spread my yoga mat out on a thick layer of hay when a white goat in a frog costume nudged me aside and released a small dried turd at the edge of my mat.
It was pure and unexpected happiness. I would love to do it again soon, although after getting shooed off the farm for continually threatening to steal Frosty, the white Nigerian Dwarf goat, I’m not 100% sure I’ll be welcomed back.
Jess Lubich of Have Ya Herd near Roberts, which offers goat yoga classes year-round, said goat yoga is like swimming with sharks; for some people, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime activity to cross off the bucket list. Others, however, come back for more.
