Goat Yoga at Chatsworth House

For many, the idea of yoga is synonymous with peace, tranquillity, and a connection to the inner self. But what if we told you that this mindful practice could be enhanced by the presence of adorable, fuzzy goats?

Friday 28 June, Saturday 29 June – sold out, Friday 5 July

10am – 11.15am | £25 per person

Chatsworth House is making use of the Chatsworth Farmyard’s newborn goats while doing yoga asanas (poses). As you practice various postures in their outdoor pasture, goats will wander freely around and on you, making the activity joyful and entertaining.

You will study Hatha-based asana, which emphasises striking a balance between masculine and feminine, hot and cold. This involves doing poses that are accessible even if you have never touched a mat, but may seem familiar to you if you have done yoga before. You can learn to better align and feel your body in this practice, which will help you discover a method to make the posture feel appropriate for you instead of feeling like you have to fit into a predetermined shape.

The goats will wander freely about you while you perform these poses. By doing this, you can let go of your notions of what yoga should “look like,” adopt a mindset of simplicity and innocent enjoyment, and learn to be more in the present.

Please dress in clothing that is appropriate for the weather. Chatsworth House will have yoga mats available. They will hold goat yoga in their outdoor pasture come rain or shine. On the morning of the event, they will notify you and offer to postpone or refund your session if the weather is too bad for the event to proceed. Please meet at 9:45 a.m. at the Farmyard entrance.
