What you'll do

tour and urban farm then move and stretch with baby goats!

We will meet in my yard, a once contaminated, trash filled vacant lot that has been transformed into an urban farm in the heart of Chicago, where the goats live with their pony and chicken buddies. We will tour the farm, from the permaculutural garden to the waste management systems to the historical context of livestock in cities. Then, as a group, we will walk the animals (some of you will carry the baby goats!) to the next block, where we will spend an hour doing yoga in their pasture. This playful yoga class is about 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 site, and touch on goat mythology and symbolism. Expect your shoes and clothing to get a little dirty, but also prepare to have fun moving your body and interacting with animals and other humans.

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 and working as a consultant for local nonprofits. As a Chicago native, 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.

Where you'll be

This is the inner city, folks, so know that you are a guest in the wild, wonderful, and vibrant heart of Chicago's west side. This experience is split into two spaces: the urban farm mothership and the pasture on the next block. Both are dreamy and next to a train line, so expect a pleasant chugging in the background.

A wonderful experience! The class format was fantastic and really incorporated the city with the yoga, plus the goats! This was a great opportunity to see a beautiful part of the city that often many people don’t get to see.

Beatrice and Molly and the goats are delightful. It's a fun creative experience in an urban environment - and clearly their neighbors enjoy both the goats and the visitors.

Loved it! My friends and I were in The city for the weekend and Goat Yoga and the farm tour were the perfect way for us to kick-off the weekend. The hosts were great, knowledgeable and inspiring. I loved the energy! The goats were so cute! So sweet and affectionate! I loved holding Cricket, one of the three dwarf goat sisters from Nigeria! Thank you Beatrice & BFF! 🤗
