What is Goat Yoga, and Why Should You Care?

By now, you’re probably asking yourself, “What exactly is, goat yoga anyway?”  It’s really as simple as it sounds, but it also so much more than it sounds. Original Goat Yoga in Galena is owned and operated by local owners Jenn and her husband Josh. They purchased a small historic farm just outside of town, renovated and renamed it Silver Linings Farm, an apt reflection of their personal story, and went into business.  Are you interested in the potential benefits of goat yoga? Here are 5 reasons we think you should put this on your list of things to do in Galena!

  1. Goat yoga is one of the best new things to do in Galena IlGoat Yoga is a fun and unique way to celebrate special occasions.  Think birthdays, reunions, bachelor/bachelorette parties, corporate health & wellness, business retreats, team bonding events, and so much more!
  2. Disconnect from the stress of everyday life, and instead, take 90 minutes focused only on yourself.
  3. The practice of yoga itself has plenty of health benefits, with or without goats. No prior yoga experience is necessary!
  4. Enjoy time spent with some of the most adorable goats around.  This part of the experience alone is worth the 90-minutes and will leave you relishing in the happy vibes we could all use more of.
  5. You’ll sleep better after practicing a little yoga. Where better to sink into a luxurious night of sleep than at the Jail Hill Inn?

If you’re looking for even more goat love, try taking a restorative goat trek in nature with our friends at Hoof It. They’re open for walks every day from now through mid-November, and then will reopen again for the summer season in May of 2020. If you visit on a Friday or Saturday, you can even extend your walk into a fabulous evening by the bonfire roasting s’mores and soaking up all that makes Galena a wonderful place to visit.
