Goat Yoga on the Farm

Fresh air, sunshine, and little hooves stepping on your toes. Doesn't that sound like heaven? Come give yoga on the farm a try.

Becca Jones has been practicing yoga for over twenty years. She earned her 200-hour goat yoga certification from a 13-year-old goat in the hills of India. She speaks fluent goat and chicken. Becca also practices as an animal chiropractor and acupuncturist. Becca can balance three goats on her feet while in headstand. Just kidding.

 

Becca has loved practicing yoga for two decades and can't wait to share it with you. She is mostly excited about an hour without children...with goats. Namaste.

Allison Eckelkamp is a former dancer, turned yogi, who absolutely loves the physical, emotional, and mental aspects of yoga. She went through yoga teacher training in 2018 and earned her 200-hour certification through LifePower Yoga, under Sarah Burns, last June. She is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200) with the Yoga Alliance.

 

A lover of animals, she believes there’s nothing as powerful as yoga, nature, and a few rambunctious baby goats to pull us into the present, refresh our bodies and minds, and recharge our spirits with laughter. 

 

Allison lives in Collierville with her husband Jeff, two kiddos (Ellis, 4.5, and Delphine, 2.5), and overweight canine couch potato (Kaya).

It's a yoga class where mats go on the grass and a downward dog could end up with a goat by your side.

 

Goat yoga has been one of the hottest fitness trends across the country and it's made its way to the Mid-South.

Big goats and baby goats were all roaming freely during a recent goat yoga class at Health Science Park near downtown Memphis.

 

"It got me to a yoga class, and how often do you get to pet goats and feed them?" Jeanie Moren said.

Yoga lovers and those who have never tried yoga were all eager to try it with goats.  Some even calling it a life-changing experience.

Jackie Sourek and her family are enjoying the fact that a fitness trend that started in Oregon and went nuts online is now at her farm in Rossville. It's yoga with goats and this Saturday Jackie will be among many sweating it out and getting fit with the goats.

Jackie and Pete Sourek both work full-time jobs in Memphis but live on a five-acre farmstead just 40 minutes east in Rossville. They enjoy the balance of working in the city and raising animals on their farm. Pete spent time on his grandfather’s dairy farm as a child, which may have been a factor when deciding what to do with their land.

Jackie Sourek says she never pictured herself on a farm. But her husband Pete had fond memories of his time on his great-grandfather's dairy farm, so they secured four acres in Rossville.
