Goat Yoga craze makes its way to northeast Indiana

Local News

Around 20 people enjoyed Goat Yoga on a farm outside Churubusco Sunday afternoon. 

Goat yoga has been sweeping the nation since it first got attention in Oregon in 2016.

The concept is simple. Mix yoga and goats. Sometimes the goats just walk around, and sometimes they get involved. 

The Bane Family Farm, 13101 Taylor Road, hosted Goat Yoga Sunday.

Participants could enjoy an hour long goat yoga session with certified Baptiste Yoga instructor Sarah Evans. People got the chance to enjoy the goats before and after the yoga session. The cost was just 20 dollars per person of 30 dollars for a family.

The Goat Yoga craze was featured on CBS Sunday Morning earlier this year.

Lainey Morse is credited with starting Goat Yoga in 2016 in Albany, Oregon. She told CBS News she was going through a difficult time in her life and started spending time with her goats. Before long she started offering “goat therapy” to others and that led to a conversation with a yoga instructor.

The rest, as they say, is history.
