There were plenty of frolicking kids in attendance, but this fun fundraiser wasn’t for the baby goats — it was for the homeless dogs and cats inside. The Animal Rescue League hosted two goat yoga classes in June to raise money for the work it does. “While this may not be the most meditative and relaxing yoga class you've ever been to, it will surely be the most memorable — perfect for melting that stress away!” … That’s how the ARL Facebook page described the sessions. Lindsey Schmoekel, who is a certified yoga instructor and an ARL board member, conducts the classes. The $35 fee includes 45 minutes of yoga instruction and 10 minutes of photo time with the goats. “Goat kids are naturally curious and playful and our little goats love to cuddle,” according to the ARL Facebook page.
