SOUTHINGTON, Conn. — Thursday’s FOX 61 bucket list tour was all about yoga in Southington.
This yoga studio though is a little different from a traditional studio, it’s a farm filled with four-legged friends.
“Their personalities are as different as they can be,” said Anneliese Dadras, from Bradley Mountain Farm.
And it’s an experience, unlike any other!
“The secret sauce on goat yoga is that goats view humans as play things,” said Dadras. “So, when they see humans doing different exercises, they say, hey that looks like a fun playset, and they go play with them!”
The yoga classes run 35 dollars and are packed with fun.
“They are very very silly, they love to have fun, they are very playful,” said Terri Battaglia, from Bradley Mountain Farm. “Some of our bigger goats roam around, and get a cuddle in, and some goats, like Chloe, are really great at jumping on peoples backs when they are in tabletop!”
They wasted no time with the two of us when we hit the mats!
But, if an hour with goats already has you exhausted, you can sign up for goat cuddling, and candle making that’s done right in house.
“They can pick their own fragrance when I do this little session,” said Karen Perry, from Bradley Mountain Farm. “The kids can do it, the older folks can do it, they just love to be hands-on and a little bit creative.”
And no matter which activities you choose, this team hopes you head home feeling refreshed.
“When they leave, I want them to feel like they had an experience without their phone, with another creature of the universe that they can take home with them and learn from,” said Dadras.
