    Goat Yoga

    Join with Hello Critter Goat Yoga in the enchanting setting of the L.A. Arboretum, while engaging in a fun, light-hearted practice taught by a certified yoga instructor. Connect with your “inner kid” while moving through a sequence suitable for all levels; from first timers who ”just came for the goats” to experienced yogis looking for a new challenge. Our Nigerian Dwarf kids will open your heart, widen your smile, deepen your stretch & strengthen your core while they weave thru class, interacting with each participant; nimbly jumping on, rebounding off, trotting under & crawling through various postures of the human playground created by attendees. Bring your love for animals and sense of humor!
