Have you heard about the amazing benefits of mindfulness, breath work, and stretching that yoga provides? What about GOAT therapy?? Find out for yourself by joining Detroit 1st and 2nd Platoons as we head over to Pingree Farms for GOAT YOGA!

What Is Goat Yoga?
Certified yoga instructors will blend movements and gentle stretches with the playful antics of live kid goats. Try the “downward goat” or “stretching kid” poses. You don’t want to miss this unscripted one-of-a-kind experience. All you need is your mat, a sense of adventure, and a water bottle—we will provide the rest.

Proceeds from the event will go to support Pingree Farms Foundation, a nonprofit organization. Pingree Farms serves as a catalyst for growing Detroit neighborhoods through education, volunteerism, partnerships, leadership, and action through agriculture.

Connect with your breath, fellow veterans, and some baby goats!

Reserve your FREE spot to this event by RSVPing here: these free registrations are reserved for veterans, platoon members, and platoon community members. All others are encouraged to join us by registering themselves at https://pingreefarms.org/goat-yoga/
