Central Texas Goat Yoga To Be Featured on Shark Tank
Yoga with animals is a trend in Central Texas and has slowly been making its way across the country. You can do yoga with kittens, horses, and goats. Well one Austin yoga studio, Yoga & Goga, is taking their unique yoga with Nigerian Pygmy Dwarf goats nationally and are starting with ABC's Shark Tank.
The idea for Yoga & Goga started in 2017 as a fundraiser for Hurricane Harvey victims, and it's stuck. While the idea of dwarf goats jumping on your back while you're in child's pose is kind of weird, owners Rachael Phillips and Trey Kitchen assure us that it's actually really adorable.
"Both of us have been huge Shark Tank fans for years being as business-minded and entrepreneurial spirited as we both are," the owners said in a statement to CultureMap. "The entire experience was exciting, terrifying, and just completely amazing all at the same time. It was truly a once in a lifetime experience, and we feel so blessed to have gone through it."
Yoga & Goga will bring their poses and goats in front of sharks Mark Cuban, Kevin O' Leary, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec, and Daymond John on March 3rd at 7 pm on ABC.
