Move Over, goat yoga: alpaca dance lessons have arrived


A surprising number of people want to exercise alongside farm animals. Several farms across the United States offer yoga with goats, a variation of the cat yoga trend. And in Canada, you can now learn to dance with alpacas, according to Travel + Leisure.

Anola, from Manitoba 313 Farms launched its all-age AlpacaZone Dance and fitness classes this summer, offering hip-hop, barre, pilates and cardio classes for six weekends.

Unfortunately, alpacas do not teach dances. But the classes are held outdoors among the merry camelids, who are free to roam at any time in your choreography. Taking a break in the water during lessons is so overwhelmed; better to take a break alpaca caress. After the lesson, you meet the animals, which gives you even more time to chat. (Take note: one of the alpacas would love kisses.)

313 Farms owner Ann Patman said Travel + Leisure that she was inspired to start the alpaca dance program when a nearby farm started offering a popular goat yoga series. Patman, a native of Detroit who named his farm after his hometown area code, had previously worked in a dance studio.

Registration for hip-hop classes like “Poppin ‘Pacas” and “Barn Barre” costs $ 10 in presale, or $ 15 per day. AlpacaZone courses end August 19, but owners may be offering more due to high demand. Looks like it’s time for a little alpaca exercise-induced road trip in rural Canada.
