“Escape to the tranquil pastures of Farrel-McWhirter Farm Park, and let nature take you on a journey to reach your inner peace,” while meeting new animal friends, by signing up for the city of Redmond’s Yoga with Animals classes on June 2 and June 9.

Going beyond the fitness trend that is sweeping the nation, this is not just goat or bunny yoga. The possible animals that may be joining each session are goats, sheep, rabbits, pigs, chickens and a miniature horse.

Classes are interactive, relaxing and sure to be entertaining. All experience levels are welcome. Mats and blocks will be provided by the instructor. Dress for the weather in layers; the class will run rain or shine.

There are a few spots left for the classes that run this weekend and next. Sign up at www.redmond.gov/register.
