Yoginis getting their goats

Although “getting someone’s goat” has come to be associated with anger, goats are often quite calm.  Perhaps that’s why they’re included in the yoga sessions at Jenness Farm in Nottingham, New Hampshire.

While clients there assume cat poses, goats are on the loose.  These sure-footed creatures climb around and upon the diligent students.  It’s not unusual to see goats standing upon the backs of yoginis, or snuggling on their mats.

This is all in good fun and lends a lighthearted air to the classes.  The farm hosts a total of 30 goats that contribute to the production of wholesale and retail goat-milk soap.
