On May 20, Suwanee Town Center transformed into a goga studio. Yes, goga! After the incredibly successful introduction of Goat Yoga in the Park on April 29, the city partnered with Red Wagon Goats to bring Goat Yoga back to Suwanee.
Goat Yoga combines the widely known stress-reducing benefits of yoga and the light-hearted playfulness of goats. The classes are often the same as other fairly traditional yoga classes, except with the added bonus of goats casually roaming around and climbing on participants as they work out.
The experience began with a 45-minute family-friendly yoga session and ended with a 30-minute “Meet and Greet” where attendees could ask questions, receive goat kisses and, of course, capture those Instagram-worthy selfies.
The city also held a 21-and-over class for adults, in which participants had the opportunity to do goga while enjoying alcoholic beverages purchased from Town Center vendors. Participants at the session also received an unexpected surprise as one of the goats gave birth to not only one, but two babies in the middle of Town Center.
All of the proceeds from the event went to Suwanee Sculptour, an annual art installation in Town Center Park featuring a self-guided walking tour of sculptures made by artists from across the country.
