PHOTOS: Goat Yoga Benefits Urban Lotus Project


Urban Lotus Project and Ferrari Farms hosted Goat Yoga Sunday as a fundraising event for the Urban Lotus Project.

The Urban Lotus Project is a non-profit organization that helps youth and young adults who have under gone trauma of some form through yoga and meditation. Their programs include working with Reno youth homeless and those in juvenile detention centers.

Ferrari Farms provided the goats, all of which were young kids. The goats were more than happy to walk about during the yoga class, stopping at various people for a pet throughout the event. While some goats were energetic, others found a yoga mat to nap on, regardless of whether it was in use or not.
