Goat and lamb yoga has been a trendy activity in other cities, but it is now making its ways to the Metro. 

Doe's and Diva's Dairy in Honey Creek, Iowa, partnered with Simplicity Wellness and Yoga  in Omaha to offer the classes, which include poses and bottle feeding. 

"Sometimes the mamas reject their babies. If they have three babies, then they only feed/nurse two of them, or only nurse one of them, and then you end up with bottle babies. So these are my bottle babies," Doe's and Diva's Dairy owner Janna Feldman said. 

The idea came to Feldman in January and has been a way to help keep business going through the cold and into Spring. 

There are nine total baby goats and lambs around during the classes. They are all a month old or younger, Feldman says, and will nibble — but its nothing to worry about.
