Mother’s Day Baby Goat Yoga at The Backyard

Moms are invited to join MKE Yoga Social and Platinum Sky Farm’s three-month-old baby dwarf goats for a morning of yoga events filled with gentle movements and cuddles with adorable little goats. The goat yoga classes take place from 9 a.m. to noon, May 9, at The Backyard Bay View.

Each session includes 30 minutes of casual, slightly spontaneous yoga followed by 30 minutes of mingling with the baby goats. Organizers will help participants achieve photo-worthy poses. COVID-19 safety protocols will be in place. In addition to the health benefits of yoga, being around animals has been shown to decrease levels of cortisol (a stress-related hormone) and lower blood pressure. Other studies have found that animals can reduce loneliness, increase feelings of social support and boost moods.

MKE Yoga Social offers yoga in nontraditional settings throughout Milwaukee such as breweries, distilleries and parks, with a focus on community and bringing people together. Platinum Sky Farm is a small family farm in the town of Lisbon, Wisconsin, that raises chickens, ducks, turkeys and goats.

Cost: $49 per person/$85 for two people. Location: 2155 S. Kinnickinnic Ave., Milwaukee. For more information, visit
