Goat Yoga

🌟 Let's celebrate the incredible women who light up our lives! 🌟

Hey there, fitness fam! Today, I'm thrilled to shine the spotlight on a woman who embodies passion, creativity, and a whole lot of goat love. 🐐 This past weekend was an absolute gem, with spring vibes in full swing and outdoor adventures calling our names. And guess what? I had the pleasure of spending a delightful morning with the one and only Shawna McGrath for a session of Goat Yoga! 🧘‍♀️

Now, let me tell you about Shawna. She's not just your average retired school teacher – oh no. Shawna is a force of nature, reminiscent of Mrs. Frizzle from the Magic School Bus (and that's a huge compliment!). Picture a classroom buzzing with lizards, butterflies, and yes, even goats. Shawna's love for the great outdoors is palpable, and it didn’t stop at her classroom door. Nope, she's the proud owner of Junie B Farms, a sanctuary for Nigerian Dwarf Goats that'll steal your heart. 🌿

Junie B Farms isn't your run-of-the-mill farm; it's a haven built from Shawna's dreams and dedication. She pours her heart and soul into every aspect, from hosting epic Goat Camps for kids, Family Fun Night, Birthday Parties & Goat Yoga. She is often treating her guests to her thriving garden that's as delicious as it is beautiful. 🍃 And let me tell you, her goat camp? It's a hot ticket item that sells out in less than a week!  🎟️

But back to the main event: Goat Yoga! When I first pitched the idea to Shawna, she didn't hesitate for a second. And let me tell you, it's every bit as amazing as it sounds. Picture yourself striking a pose while adorable baby goats frolic around you – it's pure bliss! 🧘‍♂️ Shawna recently took in 5 kids (baby goats) from a farm in need and let me tell you, they took the experience to a whole new level of cuteness. Trust me, you won't be able to wipe that smile off your face!

After a session filled with laughter, yoga, and goat cuddles, Shawna treated us to a tour of her farm, sharing stories of its origins and introducing us to even more furry friends. And just when we thought it couldn't get any better, she showed us how to whip up homemade goat butter that was out-of-this-world delicious! Of course Shawna has her very own, freshly baked sourdough to go along with the butter. Which leads me to our next collaboration! 🥖 We will learn how to make our very own sourdough and leave with a sourdough starter!  Now, if you're itching to join in on the fun, you're in luck! We are hoping to host a sourdough workshop followed by Goat Yoga on April 13, 2024! If you are interested, reach out to me!   

In the meantime, be sure to pay a visit to Junie B Farms, take your kids, tell your friends, trust me, it's an experience you won't soon forget! Here's to strong women, goat-filled adventures, and never-ending inspiration. Until next time, keep shining bright, fitness warriors! 💪🌟
