      Summerville Goat Yoga at Flowertown Charm Mini-Farm

      NAAAAAAAMASTE! Welcome to Summerville Goat Yoga at Flowertown Charm! We were the first to bring GOAT YOGA here to the Lowcountry, so you've "GOAT" to take a class with us! Goat Yoga is a casual and gentle yoga class, with goats! Perfect for those new to yoga, pro yogi's, or those who just want to snuggle with silly goats! So baaaasically everyone! OH MY GOATNESS! It is as fun as it sounds! Our goats roam around, cuddle, and headbutt each other to play, all while in your yoga poses. Check out our video below to see what a typical class looks like! We have an urban mini-farm in our beautiful backyard under the trees at our historic farmhouse, which is the ultimate relaxing spot for our class! We have collaborated with Yoga with Joe to bring a fun, stress-relieving, happy class, with our goats! We think this combination is perfect for making you smile all while calming your soul. The yoga class will be an hour long, and if you can't "goat" enough you can stay for goat happy hour after class! During goat happy hour you can hang out, snuggle, and take pictures with the goats. Also, BYOB if you wish!  The classes will be held at “Flowertown Charm” which is our home & business and due to limited parking we ask that you park in the back parking lot of “Stallsville United Methodist Church” and we will walk a block over to Flowertown Charm together as a group. So please arrive a couple of minutes early.

Visit his website at www.goyogawithjoe.com WATCH OUR GOAT YOGA VIDEO HERE FAQs What is Goat Yoga? Goat Yoga is a gentle class combining the benefits of yoga with the fun-loving connection with goats. Goats are silly creatures that will bring you joy and laughter all while calming your soul and de-stressing your body and mind. Where is the class held? The class is held at “Flowertown Charm” which is our home & business and urban mini-farm in the heart of Summerville, SC. We have opened up our mini farm and partnered with “Yoga with Joe” to teach this class in our “backyard” mini farm. Our backyard is beautifully landscaped under the trees, very serene & peaceful, NOT smelly or dirty like a normal farm might be.  Who is the yoga instructor? Our yoga instructor is Joe, who teaches classes all over the Lowcountry. He has been active in the yoga community for over 8 years and has traveled the world learning about the birth of yoga and its different practices. Visit his website at www.joevinciguerra.com What makes your goat yoga class different from others? When we decided to start Goat Yoga here in the Lowcountry, we did a lot of research and months of planning. We decided to make our classes more intimate, so it wasn't crowded with too many guests here at one time. No gimmicky goat costumes, just goats being cute naturally. And we incorporate a full yoga class, so you can have a workout while you're being distracted by their silliness! But most of all what makes us different is being in a beautiful environment so you can de-stress and enjoy it. We worked hard on our setup so it is pretty and peaceful, the complete opposite of a muddy smelly farm most goat yoga classes are held on! We want you to be able to take in the whole experience and feel at peace. Smiling on the inside and out! So although we are on a small-scale, we think you will get more out of our class than most others.  What are the goat's names? We have 3 goats currently, Magnolia & Wisteria, are 3-year-old sisters, and then we have 1 baby, Camellia! Do I need to bring my own mat? Yes, bring your own OLD mat and/or a towel. The yoga class will be held on a grassy lawn. We do have a couple of extra mats if you don't have one. The goats sometimes like to chew on mats! So please don't bring a nice one!  Do I have to participate in the yoga class or can I just play with the goats? This is a very casual class, meant to de-stress and provide a fun & playful yoga practice. We hope you do try some poses, however, you can just sit on your mat and snuggle goats too… Is there a bathroom? YES! What is the age requirement? We require all participants to be age 10 and older, and all participants must purchase a ticket. Can my friends and family come? Yes if they purchase a ticket and are 10 years and older. We do not allow folks to just come and watch. If you have a young one that would like to meet the goats we also offer Airbnb to stay at our historic farmhouse, so come and stay with us! We do not allow drop-ins for this class, as we have a limited class size. What breeds of goats do you have? We have Nigerian Dwarf Goats, right now we have 2 sisters, they weigh about 50lbs and are the size of a medium-sized dog. Our baby is maybe 15-20lbs now.  Do you have other animals on the mini-farm? YES! We have chickens, barn cats, and dogs! We bring one of our dogs, Winter, to class, the rest stay inside. We let the chickens roam during the class as well. The cats are always around. We also have bees on our mini-farm. They are behind a separate fenced area and should not bother the class. Do your goats bite or headbutt? Our goats do headbutt each other when playing and showing off. They like to nibble on clothes, hair, and fingers, so although it is cute, just pull away if you do not want a haircut! Also, their back teeth are very sharp, so please do not allow them to nibble too deep on your fingers! OUCH! Will there be poop? YES! But goats poops are very small “berry” like pellets that don’t smoosh, are odorless, and you can simply shake it away off your mat into the grass. It also makes great manure if you would like to bring a bag and take some home with you, completely complimentary! Will there be hand sanitizer? Absolutely! Are there any baby goats? We have 1 baby goat right now, Camellia. We will have baby goats being born in Spring 2020 probably.  Will there be alcohol?  We cannot provide alcohol at this time. However, you can bring your own to enjoy after class during goat happy hour! We suggest something light; beer, wine, champagne. We provide cups. Please note containers must be unopened when arriving and leaving the property on the little walk to and from your vehicle.  What if it is a rainy or stormy day? We will most likely reschedule the class as goats HATE the rain! Do you sell any goods from your mini-farm? Yes, we do. We will have some goods for sale after the class such as; farm fresh eggs, goats milk soaps, honey, soy candles, goat greeting cards, and other home & gift items we sell here at Flowertown Charm. Visit our Etsy shop at www.etsy.com/shop/flowertowncharm Are there refunds? No, we do not issue refunds unless the class is canceled due to the weather.
