We Guarantee Lots of Fun, Smiles and Laughter Therapy!

Goats will give you therapy to make you forget all about your problems and make you laugh till you cry. They are naturally very cute, friendly, social, and curious. Experience Goat Yoga and laugh your heart out! 

Vera Del Vecchio is a Certified Yoga Instructor since 2006. When Vera did her yoga practice, Zoe her baby goat would come up to jump, climb and snuggle beside her.It gave Vera such a sweet joy, calmness and laughter to experience such a closeness with a goat. Zoe brought such a gift of love and therapy that took her mind out of any problems and made Vera happy! With her experience, Vera wants to pass this therapy and laughter to others and share “Goat Yoga Dancing Therapy.” We hope that you too can come and share these special goats to play and bring laughter and joy in your heart!

What will you do?

Goat Yoga Dancing Therapy will be outside on the grass on our beautiful Utopia Farm fields. Or in cooler weather in our barn nicely set up for events. Goat Yoga is very gentle and easy going for people 8yrs and up with no experience necessary. First of all the star of the class will be our goats! The goal of our Goat Yoga Dancing Therapy will be to forget all your problems. Of course you cannot do a serious yoga with goats jumping all over! So just go with the flow and if a goat jumps on you, wants to snuggle or feed, take a picture, just stop and play for a while. There will be lots of opportunity for interaction and play time with our goats that are naturally very cute, friendly, social, and curious. We will have paper towels and bins close by for poop or pee. Sorry, we are not able to potty train goats and hope you don’t mind! At the end of the class you will have lots of opportunity for feeding and taking pictures. There will be tea, snacks served and animal stories told. Then a closing circle sharing and a group hug blessing everyone and our goats. Cherish your time to enjoy, laugh, play, and treasured friends or family time in nature!

Where you’ll be?

Unique experience to form an up close experience with these friendly, adventurous, curious and playful goats. Let go with animal therapy to take a break from any stress, tech holiday, and away from the crazy and polluted city life. Enjoy to let yourself play, laugh, enjoy and love to connect with goats and animals. Get out with mother nature fresh country air while meeting new friends!

You may get a little dirty. Goats like to chew on hair, strings and shiny things. We do have an outhouse that is clean and pleasant. Please give yourself plenty of time in case of traffic or holidays. Our goats are usually born in January, February or sometimes October with mostly twins. Most of the times the goats are just babies or teenagers for our yoga class. We are open from March to October for Goat Yoga Dancing Therapy.
