Centennial Farm hosts its first ever Goat Yoga Experience
Adorable bouncing baby goats and yogis took over Centennial Farm as we kicked off Orange County’s first goat yoga event on April 21.
The Goat Yoga Experience & Fun Farm Day offered a unique opportunity to be part of the latest viral sensation. It was a traditional yoga class with goat kids invited in to frolic, nuzzle and climb on class participants. We had two sessions – they sold out immediately – of 60 yoga students each.
In addition to the classes, there was a free Fun Farm Day and visitors had a great time at the goat selfie station, chick petting and Centennial Farm exploration.
Spectra Yoga of Costa Mesa teachers led the beginner-level sessions on the lawn in front of Centennial Farm’s Millennium Barn. The Fountain Valley Cloverdales 4-H Club supplied cuddly baby goats to make it a memorable experience and hosted a bake sale that featured goat products.
In addition to being a trending topic, yoga with goats has been credited with helping decrease stress and incite laughter while getting in those down dogs and cobras.
“We’re excited about introducing agriculture to the community in a unique and fun way, as well as partnering with two great Orange County organizations such as the Fountain Valley Cloverdales 4-H Club and Spectra Yoga,” said OC Fair & Event Center CEO Kathy Kramer.
