First, we had cat yoga. Then, we had happy hour yoga at local breweries. Now we introduce to you… Goat Yoga BHM, Birmingham’s first ever goat yoga experience! Find out where you can zen out on the farm and practice your poses with the cutest head buttin’ goats around.
Goat Yoga BHM in Helena
Birmingham’s first ever goat yoga classes are put on by Phillip and Amy Pruett, owners of Four Feathers Farm in Helena. They got into the farm business in 2017 while pursuing their passion
“The farm awakens our senses. You hear the swooshing of the creek, birds chirping, hens cackling, goats bleating or a train chugging by—you can truly let your senses take over and be present with yourself and nature.”Phillip and Amy Pruett, co-owners of Four Feathers Farm in Helena
Goats -N- Flow at Goat Yoga BHM
So, why add goats to the yoga experience? According to the Pruetts, goats are the perfect companion to help you relax on your journey to health and tranquility.
“Goats are very calm animals by nature. They are peaceful, present and gentle with people—especially when people are focused and still. Our goats are curious and friendly because they are around people a lot. Many love to climb and jump onto raised surfaces and it is not uncommon for one of our ‘kids’ to hop up on a back during our yoga sessions. We also love when they come and curl up next to a mat to take a rest.”Phillip and Amy Pruett, co-owners of Four Feathers Farm in Helena
