Goat Yoga at Moser Manor Farms

Vanessa Moser
Moser Manor Farms, Owner

THIS EVENT IS LIMITED TO THE FIRST 25 PEOPLE ON SITE, SO ARRIVE EARLY.

Just a short 15-minute drive from downtown Chattanooga and you will find yourself on our serene six acre homestead in Hixson. Why yoga with goats, you ask? Because goat cuddles reduce anxiety and depression by increasing oxytocin and dopamine levels, those good ole bonding and feel-good hormones. Now who doesn’t need more of that especially these days? When you come to Moser Manor Farms you will be instantly surrounded by serene, calming pastures. You’ll join us in our outdoor common area on the side of the barn next to the animal pastures where you’ll find mats we provide waiting for you.

This session is limited to 25 people and reservations are required.
