School is back in session, but that doesn’t mean there’s not a lot to do in Southern Maryland! Check out these unique events happening in the area this weekend, Sept. 8-10, 2017
Yoga with Goats? Why Not?
If you’ve never taken yoga before – and even if you have! – this could be your most unique opportunity to learn.
GoatToBeZen Yoga will take place Saturdays in September from 9 to 10 a.m. at Prosperity Acres, 5811 Sunderland Court in Sunderland. Cost is $20 per person.
Each class focuses on breaking down your week with a slow flow that works out the kinks from busy work and home life. And this class adds an extra twist: Goats!
Did you read that right? Yes, you did – this is yoga with goats! Each class lasts one hour: 40 minutes of yoga and 20 minutes of time to interact and take selfies with the goats! Be sure to bring your yoga mat or towel, water, and a fully charged phone!
A couple of notes from class organizers:
- Goats poo. They can possibly poo on your mat.
- Goats climb, so there is a possibility of them climbing on you during class.
Classes take place in the sunshine only. If there is a chance of rain during the class, it will be rescheduled for the next day. If you cannot make that date, you will be credited for a weekend that works for your schedule.
