Therapeutic Goat Yoga (Lots of goat cuddles that often includes babies)

August 2 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

COVID-19 Update:
We are scheduling goat yoga and tours on weekends in May with a limit of 10 attendees (registration is online). 
Our plan is to contact all those who sign up online on both Wednesday and Friday before the event to keep you updated on if the event is still happening, due to continued changes in state and county orders.
We are also planning to have summer camp. 
For all attendees to events we will have a few things in place for safety.
We will be asking folks to wash their hands upon arrival
Noone other than our staff will be allowed to touch anything other than animals (i.e. don’t touch gates, fences, products, etc.)
Give everyone their distance when signing in
Bring your own mat and towel or rent a towel for $2 from us (we will not be providing mats at this time)
We will ask you to spread mats out so no one is close together during yoga or goat cuddles
Be maintaining social distance
inviting people to wear masks if they like with a stronger encouragement towards bandannas than actual masks due to goat curiosity and chewing
We may not be wearing masks at all times, but the instructor will have a bandanna if she needs to be closer than 6 feet to anyone. Our owner is hearing impaired so if anyone needs to talk with him they will need to lower masks/bandannas for him to lip read. 
We totally understand if these precautions are not strict enough for those of high risk or those who have high risk members of their household. We encourage you to make the choices that are best for you and your family. We will continue to put lots of great animal videos and pictures on social media, and have virtual visit options for those who would like to remain off farm. Email huxfamilyfarm@gmail.com with any questions or for more details on virtual events.
This isn’t your average goat yoga, or baby goat yoga. Our goats are trained and love to cuddle. Their happy place is beside or in the lap of a participant. 🙂 We include over 20 goats in the class (often including babies) to optimize chances for goat interaction for EVERY participant. We are going on our 4th year hosting wellness programs with our goats, such as therapeutic goat yoga, and hope that you walk away with the biggest smile of your week!
(This class will happen rain or shine. We have an event tent that all classes are under.).
Please see our other events such as Gentle Goat Yoga/Guided Meditation, or Stress Relief at the Farm for more days and times to come yoga with our goats. *We only put events up about a month in advance. Please check back or email us if you don’t see the date you are looking for*
Therapeutic goat yoga is all about the cuddles and lots of interactions with the animals! Our goats are trained for therapy programs, and absolutely adore people. They enjoy cuddles, snuggles, pets, and playing with participants.
This class is for all levels of yogis including complete beginners. 
Instructors will lead you through a Yoga flow that is mostly on the ground, while our goats and sheep are wandering around eating, cuddling, and playing. Our babies may even “participate” with you (i.e. jump on you. Don’t worry the babies are less than 15 lbs.!) Our goats have been known to cuddle up on a mat, or climb in your lap when you are doing poses on the ground. They are trained therapy animals and love nothing better than bringing a smile to participants faces!
We promise you lots of fun!
This will be a paid class at $23 per participant (smaller class size). You may pay online through eventbrite for a small fee to reserve your spot, or you may contact us by email to find out the process for mailing a check and save on the fee (we need at least a week’s advance notice). 
Wear clothes and shoes you don’t mind getting dirty from all the goat love (“yoga pants” not required-just be comfy), bring a large towel and mat, and come ready to laugh and relax.
We do ask that if your group has more than 10 people in it, you contact us at events@huxfamilyfarm.com to schedule a private event if at all possible. We try to keep the public class spots available for those who don’t have enough people for a private event, if we can.
Once signed up please let us know if you won’t be able to make it so we can open your ticket to another yogi and possibly get you a refund! 🙂 (Refund Policy: If requested prior to 48 hours of event total refund will be given no matter what (minus Eventbrite’s fees). If requested less than 48 hours of event we will try to find another attendee to take your place. At that point the ticket is non-refundable unless we are able to find another attendee. We can not change your ticket to a different date. Please note: the Eventbrite fee is non-refundable, unless we are the ones who cancel an event. You can email us for the option to mail a check or pay via Venmo to avoid Eventbrite fees if you wish. The closer to an event we are, the less likely we will be able to do check though) 
Participants ages 6 and up are welcome for the yoga class with a ticket. We ask that all participants are respectful of those around them, and treat the animals with kindness and respect too! If any of your participants are under the age of 14 please note it when you sign up.
Mats are NO LONGER provided. You will want at least one LARGE TOWEL and possibly a mat (plus a possible extra towel in case of “goat accidents”). We do have clean towels for rent for $2 each.
We will no longer be doing feeding before class, but you are still welcome to bring treats for the goats that we will give them at feeding time.  We are also happy to take your old food you are ready to throw out to give to our pigs Miss Charlotte and Piper throughout the week (dairy, meat, veggies, and fruits)
There will be farm products such as goat milk soap, duck eggs, t-shirts, and woodworking items for sale if you are interested. We accept cash, check, Venmo, and Paypal on site for farm products, as well as credit for everything but the goat cheese and desserts.
We will send out an email the week before your class with details about directions and reminders of what to bring as well as a weather update. Please be on the lookout for this. Check your SPAM if you haven’t received it by Thursday before your class. There is NO NEED to print your ticket. If you don’t get the email please check in with us. 
Inclement Weather Policy: (includes severe weather conditions ONLY! We have an event tent in case of rain.) We will announce potential weather hazards in our email the week before the event. If we feel that poor weather is imminent we will send out another email by the day before the class is going to occur announcing the class is cancelled. We will also post it on Facebook and Instagram. If class is cancelled refunds will be issued to all attendees, and you will be sent a link to sign up for other classes if you wish!
