Catherine on 6 ways live music is better than live goats in yoga class:
- Goats don’t have fingers, so they’re not adept at playing either keyboards or cello.
- Musicians don’t stand on your back during crocodile and plank pose.
- Musicians (for the most part) poop in private.
- Reproducing music for at-home yoga requires only a CD or mp3; reproducing goats for at-home yoga is a much bigger commitment.
- The kind of chanting goats do doesn’t conform to any Sanskrit texts I know of.
- Musicians might be bad but goats can be really baaaaaaaad…
Sam on 6 ways live goats are better than live music in yoga class:
- Goats make me smile, especially when they stand on your back during child’s pose. Musicians don’t do that.
- Goat yoga feels less serious and more playful. Yoga with music might, for me, feel more like a performance.
- Baby goats are clumsy (like me!) and live music is usually rhythmic and orderly.
- You don’t get to feed the musicians bottles and tuck them into bed after yoga and the farm I do goat yoga at lets you do that with the goats.
- Goats provide excellent distractions when the poses are too hard.
- Goats sometimes nibble on your yoga clothes so everyone wears scruffy old clothes not pricey Lululemon matching outfits.
