This Sunday, start your day off with a little yoga and... goat cuddles? That's right! Moser Manor Farms is hosting Goat Yoga on the Farm where people of all yoga experiences are welcome. The classes are entirely outdoors where you'll be surrounded by serene, calming pastures. Once the instructor begins, the goats will be released and looking for cuddles! According to their website, goat cuddles reduce anxiety and depression by increasing oxytocin and dopamine levels, those good ole bonding and feel-good hormones. What could be more relaxing than yoga and baby animal cuddles? Head over to their website for all of the details on what to expect and to purchase your ticket by clicking here.
Is a summer run one of your favorite outdoor activities? Take on the summer heat in the Burn Your Half Off race. This multi-loop race is focused on high fives, loud music, cheering, and FUN. Runners of all levels are welcome, but this is not a highly competitive, speed focused race. The refreshingly flat course is along the Tennessee Riverwalk with beautiful views of the river and restrooms conveniently placed. The finish line food and festivities continue until the last person finishes. The race distances included a 5K, 10K, and Half Marathon and the finisher's medal is a sugar skull. How cool is that!?
