Goat Yoga? You’re Kidding Me.

I was half awake when I saw the new entry on our refrigerator calendar – April 15, GOAT YOGA!

She and I love goats. We plan to have some in the near future, but still … I was introduced to yoga as a warm-up exercise about 20 years ago when I was hired to do a play. Actors love to warm up. This particular group liked yoga. So, I did yoga. Sorta. It was more of a nice stretch, some time to collect my thoughts, and a colossal waste of valuable rehearsal time.

“I don’t have a yoga mat,” I reasoned. “What’s the point?”

“It’s at a brewery,” she said triumphantly.
