How you can hop on the Dayton goat yoga train while enjoying s’mores and booze this weekend

If you’re in the “know,” then you know there’s a goat frenzy happening in Dayton. 

Goat Yoga at Secret Eden has been growing with rapid popularity since the sessions began earlier this summer. As someone with first-hand experience with the hoofed exercise partners, the success of the goat yoga sessions comes as no surprise.

More than 15 goats of different sizes clomped their way between yoga mats — not being shy about nibbling on a few mat corners or getting up close and personal with new human friends. Pair the little trouble makers with the most tranquil setting of towering pines on Secret Eden’s property and you have a new “must” on our Dayton summer bucket list.

Secret Eden is adding to the fun with this weekend’s special Goat Yoga session— Goat Yoga and S’more’s and one later this summer, Goat Yoga and Brunch with Mimosas.

This Saturday, July 28th, Secret Eden is inviting you to come out to play with the ‘Kids ’— no not those kids— because this BYOB event is only for people 21 years and older. After the hour-long easy flow goat yoga session, there will be a bonfire party with s’mores. 

On Sunday, August 19th, the class will spend a peaceful morning waking up the senses with easy flow goat yoga and the sounds of nature. A nourishing brunch with mimosas will follow the session.

The classes fill up fast, so you will need to register ahead of time. Details and registration can be found at

The “experiences” begin with time for quality selfies with the herd. Participants then get to lead the herd to a beautiful outdoor studio beneath a canopy of pines for an hour-long easy flow yoga session “designed for all levels.”
