Namaaaste Goat Yoga

Renew your inner spirit with a fun, relaxing, giggle filled goat yoga class at Harriet Wetherill Park. The goat in me honors the goat in you! A triple threat to de-stress, Namaaaste Goat Yoga is a great way to break from your normal mindset and reap the benefits of animal/laughter therapy and yoga! Open to yogis of every skill level, Namaaaste Goat Yoga is not your typical but still relaxing form of beginner level yoga that always involves smiles, laughter, giggles and of course, goats! Our miniature goat breeds are just the right size (think Beagle-size or smaller) to jump on your back, snuggle in your lap or take a nap on your mat as you move through our certified instructor’s guidance. Watch your cares melt away with every goat touch and kiss. Beyond trendy, goat yoga is here to stay as many find unexpected joy in being in the moment and presence of goats. 45 minute beginner friendly goat centric yoga class and 15 minute goat snuggle/picture time with 9-15 of our baby/miniature goats. Participants need to provide their own mat/towel/blanket on which to do the yoga. Location: HWP- 2642 Butler Pike

LOCATION: Harriet Wetherill Park; 2642 Butler Pike, Plymouth Meeting, PA, USA

During the fall migration, evenings can be a great time for finding birds that are migrating in, those that are getting ready to leave and fly all night, or others just settling in for the night. We will hunt for them all in the stream area, butterfly garden, field and woodland edge of this surprisingly restful park. Our 1+ miles exploration usually takes 1-2 hours of easy travel, with happy surprises such as swallows, warblers, hawks, great blue herons, woodpeckers and more.

Birders of all ability levels are very welcome to join us, as are children if accompanied by an adult. Bring binoculars if you have them. There are accessible restroom facilities on site.
