Mississippian Ashlin Harper visited Fort Worth for the weekend. Her first impression: Goats. 

“Exciting. Kind of weird,” Harper said. “I’m into yoga, but I’ve never had a yoga class infused with anything else.”

Goat Yoga Dallas brought one of its classes March 5 to the Victory Forest Community Center, 3427 Hemphill St. 

The community center’s director, Brian TenEyck, said he wanted to use the yoga session as a trial run to gauge community interest. He plans to host another session at the community center in May where he will invite city leaders and another in July during National Park and Recreation Month.

The March 5 session ran 30 minutes and was led by instructor Sierra Mangus. While Mangus instructed the people, goat wrangler Walker Foreman instructed their partners.

“I was doing contract work, and I did some contract work for them and they were like, ‘Well, sh**, looks like you can do some goat yoga,’” Foreman said.

Goat Yoga Dallas has 38 scheduled upcoming events in the DFW Metroplex. No kidding.
