Yoga with Goats
While yoga is something that can be truly beneficial for both the mind and body, it’s not something everyone can get onboard with. Many find it difficult to switch off and find their zen – their mind wandering, getting distracted by even the smallest of things.
But what if getting distracted was half the fun? That’s right, it’s time to do your downward dog a little differently… with goats. This trend is a little different, but its here to stay!
Why Goat Yoga?
Human-animal interaction releases Oxytocin, which is commonly referred to as “the love hormone.” It reduces stress and induces feelings of happiness when released during bonding activities.
Furthermore, petting and playing with animals boosts serotonin and dopamine in the brain and decreases cortisol levels. Serotonin and dopamine are responsible for impulse control and mood moderation. Lower levels of these chemicals results in an increased risk of depression and risk-taking behaviours. The hormone Cortisol is released in response to stress. Goat yoga combines these effects with yoga for a double dose of relaxation.
Some health benefits from goat yoga include enhanced mood, lower blood pressure, and heightened flexibility. So join us and see for yourself.

Easton Farm Park
Easton Farm Park sits on the edge of the stunning Victorian village of Easton. Behind the famous serpentine wall which snakes through the village there used to lie Easton Mansion. As was the “trend” during the late 1800s the Victorian landowners built Model Farms, each more ornate than the next, and Easton Farm Park was the Model Farm for the Easton Estate.
The real magic of the farm can be found by meeting our animals. They are the life and soul of the farm, and are real characters!
With heated indoor play areas and the Barmy Barn cafe you can, when necessary, retreat from the weather, sit back relax and chat with your friends whilst the children fire foam balls in the air cannon arena! Our activities and opening times vary through the year, you can find the details here.
If you love lambs and young animals a visit in Spring is a must – keep an eye on our Facebook page to see details of all the new arrivals.
