Goat Yoga makes its return on April 26

Published April 22, 2022

After high popularity in the fall, goat yoga returns to campus for Naz students! As final exams quickly approach, Nazareth knows how much students need opportunities to relieve stress. Goat yoga is a perfect activity to not only provide physical wellness but mental and emotional wellness, too.

Goat yoga combines the traditional practice of yoga with pet therapy by introducing adorable baby goats, who are natural jumpers and explorers, to a beginner level yoga class. What results is goats on yogis’ backs and smiles on everyone’s faces.

Nazareth students are welcome to attend Goat Yoga on Tuesday, April 26, at 5:30 p.m, under the outdoor pavilion behind York Wellness and Rehabilitation Institute and off G lot.

The tribe of curious and friendly baby goats travel from NY Goat Yoga in New Berlin, N.Y. with the yoga instructor and goat handler.

NY Goat Yoga and their adorable, and pretty famous, goats have been featured on The Drew Barrymore Show, Dr. Oz, The Untitled Action Bronson Show, Inside Edition, Daybreaker NYC, WPIX11, Cycle of Health, Self Magazine Online, BInspired In-Flight Magazine, Jessie On A Journey Travel Blog, Nippon Television Network, International News Report, The Daily Star, Hometown Oneonta, Exploring Upstate New York Blog, The Points Guy Travel Blog and many more.
