Moose Jaw Families for Change (MJFFC), in collaboration with Wilson Farms and Abundant Health Solutions, will be hosting goat yoga in a bid to raise funds for the Kinsmen Inclusion Centre.

The community is invited to attend this event which is being held for the first time at MJFFC.

MJFFC says there is a wide interest in Goat Yoga at the Centre, and they saw it fit to host this event which will benefit their clients and anyone in the community who would like to join them.

“We acknowledge the joy of engaging with goats and wanted to bring it to the Kinsmen Inclusion Centre,” said Katie Statler, Community Coordinator at Moose Jaw Families for Change. “Goat Yoga gives our clients an opportunity to further engage and interact with the goats. We’ve had goats before, and our clients loved engaging with them but the yoga aspect of it will also provide an opportunity for them to have that physical mobility portion as well. This will allow them to move their bodies in whatever way they can.”

Statler added that this will also give the community an opportunity to try something new. “This will also allow the community to try yoga if they haven’t done so before in a fun session that’s a little less daunting because there are goats involved.”

Funds raised from Goat Yoga will go to the Kinsmen Inclusion Centre and be put towards a new vehicle for transportation to community events and programs.

Goat yoga is in partnership with Shannon Wilson of Wilson Farms 1884 Foundation and Cindy Devine of Abundant Health Services.

Shannon Wilson of Wilson Farms says she is excited about partnering with MJFFC because the Inclusion Centre is very close to her heart. Wilson Farms will be providing the animals (goats) for the event.

“I’m very passionate about everything that the Inclusion Centre does. I work with children who have developmental delays or are at risk so that holds a special place in my heart. It’s an important organization for me and I wanted to partner with them because they have amazing programming.”

Wilson also spoke of some of the benefits from interaction with the goats. “When we have interactions with the goats, it really brings out communication for the clients. They are usually fully engaged with the goats. It is also calming, fun and interactive and they tend to enjoy this very much,” Wilson added.

MJFFC looks forward to interacting with the community at this event and seeing some new faces.

Goat Yoga will be held on the following dates:

  • March 19th & 26th @ 7 p.m.
  • April 2nd & 9th @ 7 p.m.

Location: Kinsmen Inclusion Centre (335 4th Ave SW)

The cost of each class is $20, or $70 for all. Pre-registration is required, and can be done by emailing

If you do not have a yoga mat, MJFFC will have some available. The event is open to people of all ages and abilities.
