Karaoke yoga. Booze yoga. Rave yoga. As novelty yoga flourishes, the meditative aspect of the traditional practice diminishes—as it certainly would with the latest gimmick: goat yoga. Practitioners bend themselves into pretzels on a grassy field where baby goats have free reign, which means om gives way to awww when Billy trots under your Downward Dog.

But finding zen is hardly the point of this class, says Brandon Nobles, co-owner of Goat Yoga Las Vegas. “No, the focus level of our yoga classes are not on par with the average yoga classes, but that’s okay ... Listening to 20 people giggle when they hear a goat sneeze for the first time or the laughter when one of the goats decides someone needs help stretching and jumps up on their back is an incredible kind of therapy.” For more info, visit goatyogalv.com.
