New to the Canadian Western Agribition this year, Grotto Garden’s Goat Yoga is gathering crowds of children and adults alike to watch and participate. Grotto Gardens was invited by Agribition as a part of the entertainment portion.

 

“It’s nice to have something that has involvement of animals,” said Bruce Holmquist, president of the Canadian Western Agribition. “I think it’s appealing and entertaining and gets consumers in touch with agriculture and animals.”

 

The goat yoga area is set up in a small gated space in the Canada Centre Show Sale Arena with 19 mats in a circle and one in the center for the instructor. Each session is about 30 minutes during which the goats roam around, lick people, sniff people and even cuddle up to participants.
