Yes, Alpaca Yoga is totally a thing, and it’s happening every Monday at Alpacas at Marquam Hill Ranch in Molalla – a scenic working alpaca ranch that makes for the perfect spot to relax, get your stretch on, and hang out with some adorable animals.
Alpacas are hilariously curious animals with quirky personalities, and, yes, it just so happens that they thoroughly enjoy watching people do yoga. They’ve even been known to sit next to yogis in the midst of their workout, just to get a closer look at what they’re doing. All that human stretching seems to peak their curiosity.
Even if you’re not a practiced yogi but still want to check it out, feel free to try. Poses are kept simple so as to keep from intimidating both people new to yoga and skittish alpacas. The best part is, after the workout, you get to sample award-winning Willamette Valley wine from nearby wineries.
Classes are held on Mondays at 7:00 p.m. at Alpacas at Marquam Hill Ranch off of HWY 213 just outside of Molalla.
