When stars come to Dayton, they do goat yoga

To take a breather from fighting multiple French revolutionary wars in a week, the cast of Les Miserables — on stage in Dayton through Sunday — did some goat yoga.

The cast visited The Estate at Sunset Farm on April 4. It’s a beautiful events property on a farm estate near Bellbrook.

Retired Bellbrook firefighter Athena Haus is now a professional dog trainer and yoga instructor— frequently incorporating a small team of goats into her classes.

Her brother is none other than Matt Shingledecker, who plays one of Les Miserable’s central roles — Enjolras.

The siblings pulled some strings to make an afternoon of relaxation happen for the cast.

Goats in tutus trounced around the cast, giving whatever assistance they could— mostly just a nibble of the yoga mat.
