What is Goat Yoga?
Mueva Fitness in Clarkston is partnering with Pingree Farms and H.O.P.E. Horsepark by putting a unique spin on the ancient practice of yoga. Goat yoga is a unique experience that blends the movements and stretching of yoga with the playful antics of live kid goats. Try the “downward goat” or “stretching kid” poses. All you need is your mat, a sense of adventure, and a water bottle – we will provide the rest. Space is limited; so register TODAY!
Classes are taught by certified yoga instructors and call this particular class an "outward practice" instead of an "inward practice." Normally, in yoga, you're about clearing your mind and this is about experiencing what's outside. Take in the beautiful scenery, meet some interesting folks, and enjoy snuggling these adorable goat babies.
If the cuteness isn't enough to get you in, part of the money raised goes toward growing H.O.P.E. Horsepark's mission to help heal others by bringing them back to nature, using the healing power of horses. Primarily a sanctuary that offers horses and ponies a second chance in life, most of H.O.P.E.'s herd is rehabs. H.O.P.E.'s philosophy is not to teach how to ride only, but to teach how to care for all conditions in the lifetime of the horse.
Pingree Farms, located in the City of Detroit turns vacant and blighted land into an urban food oasis while providing meaningful educational opportunities for Detroit’s young people. Each spring a group of 60+ volunteers, factory workers from Milton Manufacturing who own the property along with the owners, and neighborhood residents plant thousands of plants that grow to yield fresh food for the surrounding neighborhood. Pingree has also worked with 4-H and the Detroit Public Schools to develop programs for learning about caring for animals, growing food and envisioning a better world.
