Where to do Goat Yoga in Central Florida

It’s Saturday morning and you’re adding a touch of zen to your routine, flowing through a peaceful outdoor yoga class. Feeling tranquil in tabletop pose, you suddenly feel a jolt as four little hooves take up residence on your back. Welcome to goat yoga.

One of the latest crazes in the yoga world, goat yoga is your chance to de-stress amongst a horde of adorable goats. Goats are curious and love interacting with people, as evidenced by their tendency to hop straight onto your back or snuggle up on your mat for a nap. Besides the mind-calming and body-strengthening benefits of yoga, you’ll get an extra dose of animal therapy.

Lucky for us, there are a handful of places to practice goat yoga in Central Florida. Stretching from Sanford to Sarasota, here are our top picks.

Mini Goat Yoga at Oak Aged Farm – Saint Cloud

When: Select Saturdays – see website for details

Grady Goat Yoga Tampa Bay – Thonotosassa

Where: Hat Trick Ranch, 12551 Franklin Road, Thonotosassa

Yoga mat needed: Yes

The goat yoga experience at Grady Goat is best described as delightful, hilarious chaos. There are no words for the moment the goats are released into the fenced-in area where class takes place. As the gate is opened, a herd of playful goats gallop out, dispersing through the crowd. There’s an instant eruption of laughter, Instagram photoshoots, and a palpable sense of happiness. Goats jump on your back, nibble on your hair, jump from your back to your neighbor’s back and more. If you want to partake in a goat yoga class that doesn’t take itself too seriously, this is your ticket. Expect 95% goat love and 5% yoga. Afterwards, stick around for lunch and craft beer at Two Henry’s Brewing/Keel and Curley Winery nearby.

Bonus: Attending this class benefits the Grady Goat Foundation, a non-profit that supports children facing physical, mental, or economic adversity.

  • The Lazy H – Eustis. Check out their Baby Goat Yoga!


Yes, you should expect the goats to do their “business” throughout class. It may even happen on you or on your mat (so don’t bring your fanciest yoga mat). But, in my experience, it’s cleaned up before you even have time to realize it happened. If the thought makes you squeamish, you might want to skip goat yoga.
