Forget Downward-facing Dog – there’s a new kid on the block.
Follow Romeo, Poppy, Annie and their gang of furry friends as they experience the joys of yoga. You’ll see that goats always find a way to help humans in their practice, whether that’s simply by lying on the mat underneath them or jumping onto their back mid-pose.
The Little Book of Goat Yoga brings the goat yoga experience straight to you. It features a gentle sequence for you to try at home, divided into three sections: Connect, to help you reconnect with yourself and deal with stress; Engage, to strengthen your core; and Restore, to relax your body and mind.
Don’t worry if you don’t own a goat – you can always try out the sequence with a dog, cat or any other four-legged companion! The essence of goat yoga is to enjoy the practice and experience the combined benefits of animal therapy and yoga. It is quite possibly the cutest way to get fit!
‘It turns out doing sun salutations alongside these smart, social animals is an effective distraction from the stress of everyday life.’ – Publishers Weekly ‘Goat yoga has got legs. So much so, that it’s leapt over the Atlantic and onto Countryfile segments and is even a storyline in the Archers.’ – Telegraph
