Boring Yoga, Be Gone!

Written By: Karli Karandos and Noelle Roys Unique Yoga Classes in California

It appears yoga has become more than downward dog, sun salutations and a competition of who is wearing the most Lululemon gear. The times have changed, and there is now a type of yoga to fit your style or flow. If your routine has you feeling more blah than bling, it’s time to give something different a go. These classes combine the practice of yoga with fun activities like paddle-boarding, hip hop music and…goats! We’ve gathered the most unique yoga classes that SoCal has to offer. Namaste, y’all!

Yes, you read that right. Laughing Frog Yoga in Santa Monica hosts beginner-friendly Goat Yoga classes, where attendees are given the opportunity to meet Billy and Burlap—a pair of baby dwarf goats that have been known to get up close and personal with their fellow yogis.The next goat yoga session will be held on Sunday Sept. 16 at 3 p.m.

Native Knowledge: Get tickets soon, because Laughing Frog Yoga is currently the only studio in Los Angeles that offers goat yoga, and the $39 sessions tend to sell out quickly.
