Goat Yoga is becoming popular

One is an ancient practice to focus the body and mind.

The other is a four-legged animal with an affinity for climbing and chewing.

However, goat yoga is becoming an increasingly popular way to unwind.

Alexia Serrano quit her corporate life at Amgen after 22 years, and now makes products like natural goat milk soaps, as well as running the goat yoga classes at Cabra Farmhouse in Newbury Park.

She says they're a lot of fun and the goats enjoy climbing on the yogis.

The classes are led by instructor Rachel Dexter, who says the classes are a lot of fun.

For participant Sabrina England, the open-air goat yoga classes are the perfect escape from the troubles and stresses of life.

"I've always loved yoga for the benefits but the goats are a wonderful addition, spiritually and mentally" she told KCLU.

"Goats don't care about politics," she said. "Or the economy or traffic. It's just all love and snuggles."

Whatever next? Maybe pig pilates?
