The members-only club in Golden, Colo. will offer two sessions of the popular version of the exercise activity for $38 to non-members who register in advance while space is available. The classes will included allocated time for “cuddling” of the baby goats that will also climb on participants’ backs (through their natural instincts to ride on their mothers).
Mount Vernon Canyon Club in Golden, Colo., one of the oldest private clubs in the Denver area, will open to the public on Saturday, June 22 for two special goat yoga sessions provided by Rocky Mountain Goat Yoga, Fox 31 of Denver reported.
The two classes, to be held at 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., are being offered for $38 to non-members who register in advance while space is still available by calling the club or registering through its website.
Sarah Wilcox, the club’s Director of Membership and Marketing, told Fox 31 that the classes will include allocated time for “cuddling” of the baby goats that will also climb on participants’ backs (through their natural instincts to ride on their mothers) as they perform yoga poses.
Fox 31’s preview report of the sessions noted that participating in the classes will also offer “a great opportunity to check out [Mount Vernon Canyon Club],” which it described as a club that “offers a laid-back, social vibe, and continues to break the mold as it offers almost a century of service to the Denver area.”
Mount Vernon Canyon Club was originally founded as Mount Vernon Country Club in 1923. The club’s website says the name was changed in 2017 to “more accurately reflect both the location and the atmosphere found at the club, namely its relaxed vibe and social nature, as opposed to a status-based organization.”
C+RB featured the club in its September 2018 issue, as part of a “Chef to Chef” interview article with its Executive Chef/Food & Beverage Manager, Ryan Wolf (https://clubandresortbusiness.com/keeping-engines-running-mount-vernon-canyon-clubs-ryan-wolf/).
