You know what’s a good sure-fire to get everyone excited about a new yoga studio? Baby goats. Cute, cuddly, fuzzy little baby goats.

Or at least, that’s what caught our eye when we heard that a new yoga studio, called the Yoga Hive Philly, was coming to East Passyunk Avenue in South Philly. According to studio owner Heather Bonato — who co-owns Yoga Hive with Gina Durante — the new studio is looking to increase awareness of yoga practice by leading “very relatable yoga classes and events that will attract the masses.”

Because there’s nothing that attracts the masses quite like goat yoga, the studio is celebrating its grand opening with an outdoor yoga session in East Passyunk Community Center Park with animals from Angels in the Pines Goat Farm. The guided all-levels class will include the pint-size goats, which — fair warning — may try to climb all over you throughout the session.

Afterwards, everyone is invited back to Yoga Hive’s new studio located at 1914 East Passyunk Avenue for lavender-lemonade cocktails to toast to the new space.

Ready to join in on the baby goat yoga fun? Two sessions of baby goat yoga are scheduled for July 14 at 2 and 2:30 p.m. at 1025 Mifflin Street. It’s BYO yoga mat, but the studio will provide extras to anyone who needs one. Tickets to the grand opening event are $60 and can be purchased here.
