Goat Yoga at Smiling Hill Farm in Maine

Part Yoga, Part Goat Snuggling, All Smiles!

Goat yoga at Smiling Hill includes mama goats, baby goats, and yogis in a large outdoor pen. These are beginner-friendly, all-levels yoga classes that combine the serenity of yoga with the silliness of goats! We start with meet and greet time with the goats, then yoga, then straight snuggling at the end.

Enjoy dairy delights or scrumptious sandwiches from the Ice Cream Barn while you’re on the farm.

Picture taking, laughing, and goat cuddling are all highly encouraged 🙂

Embrace the Elements!

It’s Maine! We play outside year-round here!

Goat Yoga classes are outside summer, fall, winter, and spring so you have full access to goat snuggles and silly yoga classes whenever you need them. Goats are generally born April – June, so every season offers a new unique experience.

Our normal practice space in the petting area provides a lush setting with the symphony of farm animals providing the soundtrack for class. The Hay Barn or Birthday Barn provide a covered space for times when it is too wet to be fully outside.

All of our spaces experience the outdoor temperature so remember to always dress for the weather
