ABOUT THIS EVENT
Event Category

Fitness & Wellness

Event Overview

For this experience, we will meet in the goats' pasture, a third of an acre field on Carroll Ave, just down the street from Garfield Park Conservatory. Here we will have a 75-minute yoga class involving moving, stretching, and being aware of your own body, while goats graze, frolic, and perch on you! We will talk about power animals, connecting to the natural world hidden in plain sight, and touch on goat mythology and symbolism.


You are welcome to leave straight after class, or help walk the animals (some of you will carry the baby goats!) down the block back to a once contaminated, trash-filled vacant lot that has been transformed into an urban-farm in the heart of the west-side, where the goats live with their pony and chicken buddies. You can take a little tour, ask questions, or snack and drink coffee. Expect your shoes and clothing to get a little dirty, but also prepare to have fun, move your body and interact with animals and other humans.


Please Note: If it is raining, the event will be canceled. Your account will be credited for a future date or can request a refund by reaching out to hello@dabble.co.

What's Provided

Towels for yoga, coffee, tea and water will be provided. Bring a yoga mat if you have one.

MORE ABOUT YOUR HOST

Beatrice Scescke

Top rated icon TOP RATED

I have been teaching yoga and working with animals for the past 13 years, and am continually interested in their overlap. I have spent the past decade studying agriculture, apprenticing with animal trainers, and working as a consultant for local nonprofits. I have always dreamed of rewilding myself and my environs by bringing more plants and animals to the city. For the past 6 years, I have been bioremediating the lots next to my home, resulting in an urban-farm-dreamscape. The animals here are a delight to local children and have become neighborhood mascots. As my day job, I own and operate a holistic health clinic in Pilsen that provides acupuncture and musculoskeletal therapy.

    My daughters and I are always looking for something fun and new to do....this was it! Beatrice and Molly were not only excellent instructors, but they enlightened us about goats and rewilding. The baby goats were cute and fun, but also added to the experience of yoga. They helped with balance and our ability to stay in the moment. This is definitely a class we'll do again!

    It was the first time the class was held so the baby goats were brand new at 9 days old! Less of them hopping and more cuddling them, which was fine by me. You can tell how much enjoyment the teachers had for reconnecting with the earth and regrounding into the world around you.

    Super fun time! Expect more goat than yoga. But the goat time is great, baby goats are incredibly cute and holdable, and the goats are very sociable. Do it!

    It was an amazing morning. I felt grounded and peaceful. I also felt if the world was filled with more people like the teachers (and classmates) the world would be a better place. The goats were adorable and sweet, I couldn't get enough! They integrate the goats and stories perfectly to make you appreciate these beautiful little creatures in a new light. I could not speak highly enough of my experience for myself and my daughter that joined me.

    This class was a great time! The instructors gave the group some background on how animals and humans interact together before they were introduced to us. There was also time when there was information given about the mythology of goats. They helped each person feel comfortable around the animals and fostered a fun and educational experience!

    This was a lot of fun and I highly recommend it. The goats were so cute and we had plenty of time to hold them and take pictures. It was a really relaxed and playful atmosphere. I liked that the yoga wasn't too intense as I had just come from a really long run. It was more focused on stretching and relaxing which I liked a lot. It's outdoors. One thing to note is there was some broken glass around the tree and under my mat. I wish they'd removed that before class, but we just put gym shoes on when we needed to be off the mat. Otherwise everything was perfect. I'd definitely go again. The teachers were very friendly, upbeat and helpful with the goats and helping people try out some poses with them. I really enjoyed their positive energy.

    Overall this was a very positive experience. The place was relatively easy to find. It is a vacant lot across from the Garfield Park Conservatory. Molly and Beatrice were very nice and the yoga was fun. I enjoyed holding the goats and spending time with them. What was disappointing was that there were too many people. There were 5 goats and over 20 people, so you didn't get much time with them. Despite that, I would still consider going back with a friend.
    At the end we were invited to have some tea and then get a tour at her small urban farm. There were two very adorable dogs, chickens and a pony.

    These goats are so cute, it took all my willpower to not put one in my bag. I wish there was just a little bit more allotted time to take pictures since everyone wanted to pose with this particularly cute baby goat and there wasn’t enough time for everyone (aka me). Spending time with the goats was very therapeutic and so fun.
