Event description

Description

After the success from our adult classes, Simmons Farm is now offering a Family Goat Yoga Class every second Saturday through the summer from 4 to 5 PM at the farm. Each Parent/child pair is $25, with a cone full of grain is included. At each class, we will start our afternoon practice by feeding the animals, take a walk up through the center of the farm to our outdoor yoga studio, practice with the goats and then return renewed to our cars.

One word to describe yoga is union; we practice together as one in nature with other animals, gently stretching, opening up our minds and hearts. The inclusion of the playful, adorable kids serves as a tool to strengthen that muscle. Goat yoga has taken the holistic wellness & integrative therapy world by storm.

This goat yoga class is designed for families and, no yoga experience is required. The class is practiced outside in a designated area with a gorgeous, panoramic view of the wide open space at Simmons Farm in Middletown, RI. It is recommended to plan for the weather and bring a exercise mat or blanket, cushion/ pillow and water.

Please arrive a few minutes before the event, enter into the Simmons Farm parking lot on West Main Rd., and check in and pay (cash only) when meeting at the farm stand. We will then collect our playful goat partners and head up to the field to begin our practice. In the event uncooperative weather forces us to cancel, be sure to monitor social media, check email, or contact the farm.

Your instructors:

Christine Reed, Kripalu certified yoga instructor, will lead this mindfulness practice teaching yoga and meditation with kindness, warmth & humor.

Karla Simmons, mother, farmer and goat whisperer who cheerfully runs Simmons Farm will be the gracious host and will join in each yoga practice. Karla is also studying psychology where she recently decided to dedicate her focus to Pet Therapy.


For those that are unfamiliar with Simmons Farm, it is a magical place where animals roam, where life is real, and where all are welcome. Simmons Farm has many offerings, including a CSA (community supported agriculture) program, fresh produce, meats, handmade cheeses, and a “Pet, Play and Cuddle" petting zoo.

Simmons Farm is also available for private parties and special events, for more details please express your interest here or to simmonsfarmri@gmail.com and we will get back to with details.
