Do you find deep breathing to be that much more effective in fresh, country air? Would you like to experience relaxing yoga sessions held among our herd of curious ALPACAS??
While goat yoga has become a craze, we prefer alpacas for being curious yet slightly stand-offish. While we love our goats and their antics, for those of us that prefer our space, alpacas are a respectful alternative. Alpacas may sniff your hair in downward dog, but they will not try to scale your backside!
Our one-hour sessions of relaxing yoga are held in a pasture alongside some of our friendly and inquisitive alpacas and led by our knowledgeable and experienced (500-hour registered!) yoga instructor, Cara Thomas. You can learn more about her and her multiple talents (she’s a professional musician too) here: https://www.cara-thomas.com/ If you are an alpaca enthusiast and want to experience a unique place to unwind, you will love participating in yoga at River Hill Ranch. All levels of yoga experience are welcome.
Cost: $16.00 Per person, per session.
We welcome minors to participate alongside parents. Minors who wish to participate in the class must be accompanied by a participating adult and must also pay the $16.00 class fee. *For accompanying children who do not wish to participate, we have separate childcare available at an extra $5.oo per child. All accompanying children brought to the ranch during a Yoga Session MUST either register for the class or attend the childcare which is offered during the Yoga Session.
ALL RESERVATIONS MUST BE MADE AT LEAST 24 HOURS IN ADVANCE. ADDITIONAL CHILDCARE TICKETS MUST ALSO BE PURCHASED IN ADVANCE.
Please arrive promptly to the start of class to allow time to check in and set up.

What to Bring:
Yoga mat or blanket, sturdy, comfortable shoes or boots, water bottle, sunscreen, insect repellent, camera (for fun pics!). We also require a completed Waiver Release Form for each participant. You can fill out the form on the first day of class, or you can download, print and fill it out now and bring it to your first class: find the form here.

· All participants must follow the directions of the instructor(s), and remain within sight of the instructor(s) at all times.
· Smoking and pets are not permitted anywhere on the farm.
· Please use the designated parking area.
· Please do not feed or pet the alpacas without River Hill Ranch staff supervision.
· Please do not stand or climb on fencing.
Be aware that due to the nature of the location, activity and presence of farm animals, there may be uneven ground, dirt, poop, urine, insects, pollen, and other elements of nature present. These are all part of the REAL farm experience!
