What’s all the fuss about Goat yoga?
Goat Yoga is a type of practice that originated in Western countries. It’s a practice where goats are allowed to interact with the practitioners during the class. While the students do a posture, the goats in the surrounding climb on them and bring a smile on their faces. Goat yoga creates a positive experience for everybody. Most of the people who come to these classes are those who are seriously affected by depression and anxiety. Some students go through a lot of health-related problems and they become disheartened because of it. Those students who attend goat yoga also get relieved from that feeling because of the happy nature of goat yoga.
