Trend: Students turn to goat yoga to de-stress

(COLLEGE FIX) — Goat yoga is officially trending on college campuses nationwide.

Dozens of universities from coast to coast have hosted goat yoga events this year, promising students a chance to unwind with the farm animals to help cope with the stresses of college life.

A UT Chattanooga event last month billed it as a chance to “de-stress and engage in self care.” At a CU Boulder over the spring, the students pet the goats in between poses and tried to maintain their posture as the goats came up to them in curiosity. At St. Cloud State in September, goat yoga was part of a larger “Cloudfest” that included free food, a large sandpit and friendly puppers.
