Is Maui Goat Yoga a form or method of Animal Assisted Therapy?
Yes. Maui Goat Yoga’s focus is to combine goats, nature and yoga in order to disconnect with the day to day stresses that life can bring. The combination of goats, nature and yoga is very therapeutic and is a happy distraction from whatever you may be going through, whether that be depression, stress, disease, disabilities or anything. Or maybe all you need is to come, relax, be around nature and goats and enjoy the view. This is ok too.
Will there be media at the event or class?
There are times when the media will come out to film an event. To attend each event or class you are required to sign a media release form. You are under no obligation to be filmed or photographed. Please be sure to make us aware if you do not wish to be filmed or photographed.
Do you force the goats to participate?
No. The goats are not forced to stand on your back or do tricks. Our classes are not a required performance for our goats. The goats sincerely just prefer to be by humans and all they really want is to be loved and petted.
Do the goats poop on you?
Goats poop small pellets. Occasionally they can poop on your mat. All you have to do is shake it off your mat. It doesn’t happen all that often. However, it does happen. Please remember they are not dogs or cats but are farm animals. Farm animals do their own thing.
Do your goats bite, headbutt or kick?
They have never destroyed anything or headbutted a human. They can nibble at your zippers or buttons. The baby goats may try to suck your finger like a mommy goat teats. We strongly advise you NOT putting your fingers in any goats mouth. Do not allow them to suck your finger this can confuse the baby goats. They really just enjoy to being pet and cuddled.
