So I Went to Goat Yoga
Yo bitches, go to #GoatYoga. It’s so funny and weird, but you full blown lose yourself in the experience, especially because alcohol is involved. This one was at a brewery lmao. And the goats straight up walk all over you like it’s no big deal.
This handsome little stud celebrated his birthday tonight at the Brewery, surrounded by 40 or so ladies, in compromising positions. He had his way with all of us tonight, and we liked it.
It’s his birthday. Hence the tux.
This particular Goat Yoga class was at Golden Road Brewing in Glendale, on the other side of the tracks. As you drive past the train tracks, you’re taken aback by how bad the neighborhood feels. Glendale is a nice place. It has cute residential neighborhoods, the gorgeous Americana shopping center and very clean but busy streets. But the city of Glendale ends at those train tracks, and the rough, hard streets of LA punch you in the face, with strip clubs, warehouses and an overall skeezy feel. This is where Golden Road Brewing is. Even if you’ve been there before, you question if you really want to go, until you enter the parking lot, and see the cute lights illuminating the front patio. Once in the territory, you forget the outside world and are home. Home, to a pleasant, comfy, family-friendly restaurant/brewery, with delicious food, great beer and jumbo games like Jenga and Connect 4. Perfect for kids and dogs and Goat Yoga.
I first learned about this class early last week through Facebook and immediately purchased tickets. Boy am I glad I did. Goat Yoga was the best thing I’ve ever done, and I wasn’t alone. The designated astro turf of the side patio was full with yoga mats. My 2 friends and I barely squeezed in by the entrance, patiently waiting as the goats roamed through the crowd. They were shy at first but quickly adjusted as they were given treats to interact. If you’re ever curious what it’s like to have a baby goat using you as the ground, well it’s kind of like if you have small children and they come to your bed while you’re asleep in the morning.
The teacher began the class with a “Happy Birthday” song for Billy the Goat, who was dressed in a Tux. The other goats wore socks to soften the blow of their hoofs as they walked, stood and jumped all over our bodies. If you ever want a challenge, try doing a Balancing Table pose with a goat on your back! Of course the yoga was a joke. Everyone did their best to concentrate, but as soon as the goats came around, so did the cameras and giggles. It was perfecto! I don’t think there could have been a better way to spend a Monday night.
Goat Yoga is over at Golden Road but you can meet the goats, get more info and find upcoming classes at HelloCritter.com!
