ITV This Morning

It was an amazing experience to join Phillip & Holly on ITV This Morning. The goats were a little too pre-occupied eating the TV stage props to join our yoga class, but it was fun none the less.The kid goats tend to be much more inter-active and cuddly during our regular sessions at Pennywell Farm, Devon, where they are comfortable in their own environment (July 2017)

Haha, whilst the kid goats on ITV This Morning were a little camera shy, here is a time lapse of one of our sessions at Pennywell Farm. The goats were far from shy here! 


Since its a completely organic experience, the goats come and go as they please - Every session is unique!

Animal Yoga - No Kidding !
