MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - 901 Goats offers a way to rest your mind and body by being around furry little animals.

The experience is being offered in Overton Park Shell in Memphis.

The owner, Lindsey Champagne explains how they got into the goat yoga business.

“We got a couple of goats, and they were a hobby thing. We had 28 babies in a ten-day period of time. I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, what are we going to do?’” she said.

She says they decided to invite family, friends and neighbors to come and pet and socialize with the goats and everything grew from there.

“It was just one thing after another, and we had people calling asking, ‘hey can we come out and just hold these baby goats, it’s great therapy,’” she said. “So I just kept saying yes, and why not, next thing you know, I’m trying to balance my day job and this.”

The next goat yoga session at Overton Park Shell is Sept. 24.
