Why Goat Yoga?
Human-animal interaction releases Oxytocin, which is commonly referred to as “the love hormone.” It reduces stress and induces feelings of happiness when released during bonding activities.
Furthermore, petting and playing with animals boosts serotonin and dopamine in the brain and decreases cortisol levels. Serotonin and dopamine are responsible for impulse control and mood moderation. Lower levels of these chemicals results in an increased risk of depression and risk-taking behaviours. The hormone Cortisol is released in response to stress. Goat yoga combines these effects with yoga for a double dose of relaxation. Some health benefits from goat yoga include enhanced mood, lower blood pressure, and heightened flexibility. So join us and see for yourself.
While yoga is something that can be truly beneficial for both the mind and body, it’s not something everyone can get onboard with. Many find it difficult to switch off and find their zen – their mind wandering, getting distracted by even the smallest of things.
But what if getting distracted was half the fun? That’s right, it’s time to do your downward dog a little differently… with goats. This trend is a little different, but its here to stay!
