Alpacas may cause stress release & serious relaxation! Come join us AT THE CUYAHOGA COUNTY FAIR FREE ADMISSION TO THE FAIR!! ! for a 1 hour yoga class (followed by 1 hour of alpaca interaction) Exercise your soul amongst the most curious and gentle of animals, alpacas! Class admission fees will be 100% donated to SELR (South East Llama Rescue) , an organization that rescues llamas and alpacas in need of new homes! They are a 501 c 3 organization and work in about 15 states! The work they do is very much in need, and they depend on donations to be able to resue and re-home the animals to a better care situation. I have the highest reguard for their work as its not easy! To those who sign up for this vlass, I thank you! And the alpacas do too! Your admission fee means alot to so many alpacas and llamas!

After class, get "up close and personal" with the alpacas and learn handling techniques as well as husbandry information as we touch, hold, kiss and admire the alpacas. Bring your mat, water and don't forget your camera! Be ready to smile and be filled with the joy that animal interactions will bring. All levels welcome.
