It’s A Thing, Doing Yoga With Animals

Yoga aims to center the soul and over 300 million globally pause to reconnect with their body and mind. To reconnect with oneself and clear the consciousness is a noble daily goal. Additional over 1 billion people have pets around the. So like peanut butter and chocolate, they have have touched.  It’s a thing, doing yoga with animals.

Goats

Here we have goat yoga. The crazy was sparked by Lainey Morse of No Regrets Farm in Albany, Oregon.

As she told The Oregonian:

My goats are very social and friendly animals and love to interact with people […] Animals are known to have so many health benefits for humans as well so the mix of goats and yoga seemed to fit.

This isn’t just a kitschy trend, however. The class currently boasts a waiting list of more than 900 people and goat yoga has spawned a line of apparel. It helps that Rachel Brathen, Instagram phenom Yoga Girl, also has a goat who sometimes joins her yoga sessions.

Here are some other ways people are including animals in their yoga sessions.

Cats

Jeanette Skaluba started Yoga4Cats to raise adoption rates for a local animal shelter. Teaming with the Illinois Homeward Bound shelter and a local yoga studio, cats roam around during this yoga class.

As Skaluba told the Herald & Review, “Cats rule the Internet. But that trend hasn’t increased adoptions.”

The class waived fees and accepted donations instead, raising more than $500. One cat, reportedly, has since been adopted too.

Bunnies

We could explain it, but this video does a far better job than we could.

Horses

No, you read that correctly. This isn’t like the others. Instead of performing yoga in the comfort of a studio, people venture outside and climb atop horses to perfect their poses.

One man shared the fun with his horse, teaching the animal poses and instructing it how to stretch properly.

So, doing yoga with animals could expand your thinking as it soothes your mind.
