About our Yoga Goats
All Arizona Goat Yoga Goats, are actually trained to participate and interact with you throughout your yoga class. This is what makes us unique, however, they may jump on you at any given time without warning. Although extremely gentle and docile, they may forget how big they are. There is no retirement age for an Arizona Goat Yoga Goat. Please use caution and common sense. Goats have hooves, horns, teeth, and adorable waggy tails. It is solely your responsibility to watch for yourself and/or your child. If you’re lucky, you may leave with some scratches on your back… which is usually a sign of a good time.
