Do I need to bring my own yoga mat to Maui Goat Yoga Classes or Events?
Yes, you are welcome to bringing your own mat to class. We ALSO rent mats with a mat towel to help you stay cool for $5 cash per person. Paid at time of arrival
What else should I bring to class?
We recommend sunscreen (just in case, this is an outdoor event with no shade yet), water, hat, and camera so you don’t miss out on funny moments!
Are there refunds?
Sorry there are NO refunds due to the limit space availability in classes, however a rain check will be honored or transferable.
Rain check or transferable: If you are unable to make it to your assigned class due to unforeseen circumstances, we will do our best to move you to a different class within the following week. Please give us adequate notice beforehand so we can make room for you in another class, and give someone else the opportunity to take your reservation. Our classes fill up quickly!
If a class size is 10 or less participants, the class will be cancelled 2 hours before the class starts and you will have a rain check issued for a future makeup class within the following week.
The weather is very unpredictable at all times in Maui. We determine 1 hour before class if the class needs to be cancelled due to bad weather. If the class is cancelled due to bad weather we will find a future class for you to join or issue a rain check. If both these options do not work for your schedule we will honor a refund. A rain check will be honored or is transferable.

Is Maui Goat Yoga a form or method of Animal Assisted Therapy
Yes. Maui Goat Yoga’s focus is to combine goats, nature and yoga in order to disconnect with the day to day stresses that life can bring. The combination of goats, nature and yoga is very therapeutic and is a happy distraction from whatever you may be going through, whether that be depression, stress, disease, disabilities or anything. Or maybe all you need is to come, relax, be around nature and goats and enjoy the view. This is ok too.

No. Therapy animals do not need to be certified. You can read more about this on the “Goat Therapy” page of our website as well as learn more about the difference between Service Animals and Therapy Animals.

Do I have to participate in the yoga part of the class?
No you do not have to participate. You can just sit and snuggle the goats on your mat.
Do you force the goats to participate?
No. The goats are not forced to stand on your back or do tricks. Our classes are not a required performance for our goats. The goats sincerely just prefer to be by humans and all they really want is to be loved and petted.

Yes. The goats are free to wander around, play and snuggle with you.
Do the goats poop on you?
Goats poop small pellets. Occasionally they can poop on your mat. All you have to do is shake it off your mat. It doesn’t happen all that often. However, it does happen. Please remember they are not dogs or cats but are farm animals. Farm animals do their own thing.
Can I bring a family member or friend to take pictures of the class?
No. They are more than welcome to pay for the class as well. We do cap out each class at 50 people. We want to ensure that there is a perfect human to goat ratio and everyone gets some special goat time.
Do your goats bite, headbutt or kick?
They have never destroyed anything or headbutted a human. They can nibble at your zippers or buttons. The baby goats may try to suck your finger like a mommy goat teats. We strongly advise you NOT putting your fingers in any goats mouth. Do not allow them to suck your finger this can confuse the baby goats. They really just enjoy to being pet and cuddled.
