      Take a break from the SXSW festivities to relax and love on some goats!

      Our event will be held on the beautiful lawn at a private residence in South Austin, TX.

      The event is BYOM (bring your own mat), but we will have mats for rent for $5 each if you do not have your own. We will also supply the goats for loads of fun and laughter! We may event have a guest star or two like a potbelly pig or maybe even one of our French bulldogs!

      We will be holding 3 yoga classes. Class times are 10:00 am, and 11:15 am, and 12:30 pm. There is limited space available for each class, so please register early! A ticket is required to attend or observe.

      Class will run about 30-45 minutes with time at the end for pictures with the goats! Please do not arrive more than 15 minutes before your class time as check in only takes a few minutes and we want everyone to have enough time for pictures with our baby goats! Parking is available on the street in the neighborhood.

      As with all our events, this event is kid friendly! All children must be monitored and children age 5 or older do require tickets.
