FAQs – Frequently Asked Questions:
Q1.What kind of yoga is offered? The class is sequenced for all levels of yoga (beginners are welcome too!!), and focuses on deepening the human connection to nature, nurturing communication with animals, as well as fostering mindfulness, breath, and meditation all in a gorgeous setting with with some spectacularly fluffy and sweet assistance. No prior yoga experience is necessary. It is a 1hr yoga session taught by a certified yoga instructor were they use 12-15 baby goats to aid in your therapeutic relief when you practice a gentle flow yoga in this beautiful and natural farm setting. For those just wanting time with the goats we also offer a snuggle class that you also learn more about the goats and life on the farm. The classes include a farm viewing, 30/40 minutes of gentle yoga or snuggle while the goats interact with you, and a 15 min cool down seated poses while you continue to hold, pat, snap pictures, and feed goat treats.
Q2. How do I sign‐up? A2. Our events schedule is posted here on our website and events will be advertised on our Facebook Page as well.

Q3. Where are you located and how do I get there? A3. Our private farm is located in Georgetown, MA (or at Black Prong Equestrian Center in Bronson, FL). In Mass, we are 30 mins from Portsmouth, NH, 40 mins from Boston, and 1 ½ hrs from Portland, ME. For your GPS use 201 Pond St Georgetown, MA 01833 or GPS coordinates: 42.743732, ‐70.987688. From the Center of Georgetown head north on North St and take the first left onto Pond St and travel 1.2 miles and take a right onto our long driveway with a blue “Great Rock Farm” sign. Arrive at least 10 mins prior to your session (and no earlier than 30 mins) to avoid confusion with other class sessions. In Florida we are 45 minutes from Ocala and Gainesville and 2 hrs from Jacksonville, Daytona Beach, Orlando, and Tampa. GPS Coordinates: 29.323171,-82.600928.
Q4. What happens when it rains, will class be cancelled? A4. Our classes are on, rain or shine. In the event of rain in Mass, we will be in the 5 story post and beam barn on hardwood floors. Otherwise we will be in the grass setting near the pond so you can take in the sounds and smells of a barn. We strongly recommend a towel for when in the barn for easier cleaning of dust and goat pebbles. (In Florida our rain location is in the pavilion at Black Prong).
Q5. What should you bring? A5. Bring a mat (or towel is recommended for easy cleaning), water bottle, a camera, and an open-mind with a great attitude. Everyone will get time to snuggle and pet the goats during your session. Your registration includes goat treats, water, hand sanitizer.
Q6. Interactions with the goats? What if the goat pees, poops, nibbles, jumps on me? A6. Just like a bird pooping on your car, it’s your lucky day I guess! We will do our best to help you shake the pebble poops off your mat and keep the area you are in clean, but they are farm animals and nature calls sometimes. While our goat kids are very social and friendly, each animal is different in how it interacts with you: some will come right up to you and others may be a little shy. Patience, moving slowly, and a feeding a goat treat are the best ways for you to pet, hold, and snuggle with our baby goats. None of our goats are trained to do acts or tricks and they are merely farm animals we want to offer you to partake in some therapeutic relief and bring a smile to your face.
Q7. Tell me about the sessions and the goats? A7. Class sizes range between 20 to 30 participants. We have over 30 baby goat kids and use between 10 to 15 goat kids for a class. They are Myotonic “fainting” goats, Nigerian Dwarfs, or a mix breed goat born between Dec 2016 and March 2017. More babies are due to be born in Jan/Feb 2018 and will start Yoga in Mar/April after they are 2 months old.
Q8. Is your farm open to the public, can we stop over to pet animals? A8. No, unfortunately we are a private working farm in Georgetown, MA and do not have staff or a setup allowing drop-ins or other visitors that are not prearranged. At Black Prong, this is a active facility with many events open to the public.
