Where Goat Yoga Started
Owner’s April Gould and Sarah Williams have always shared a love for fun and adventure.
April is Arizona’s Famous Goat Farmer! She is a retired professional Waterskiier and 2x competitor for American Ninja Warrior. She was featured as the “Goat Whisperer” in 2015 for training and doing various exercise with goats on her back. She is a wife and mother of 38 kids, but 35 of them are goats.
Sarah is a certified yoga instructor and has been teaching for over 20 years! She also is a former American Ninja Warrior Competitor, and teaches Paddle-board yoga in pools all around the city. She is a wife and mother of 4 kids and you will often see April and Sarah’s kids helping out during Goat Yoga class.
So how did this all come about? Short answer, April has Goats and Sarah teaches Yoga… No, but seriously, it took a lot of hard work and determination. After all, we had to convince the world it was a “Real thing”. While April was training with her goats in 2015 for ANW, Sarah coincidentally started teaching different styles of yoga using props. Thinking of new ways to improve yoga, and knowing April had extraordinary acrobatic goats, the concept of combining yoga with goats naturally came to be, and “Goat Yoga” was born.
