If practicing yoga with baby animals running around you sounds like your cup of tea, you’re in luck. During the week of October 15- October 19, Healthworks and Republic Fitness are opening up their doors to the public for free classes, offering everything from spin to goat yoga. Here’s your chance to do down dogs with baby goats on your back.

During the week, all four locations of Healthworks, including Back Bay, Chestnut Hill, Cambridge, and Coolidge Corner, as well as the downtown location of Republic Fitness, will be hosting giveaways, tastings, classes, and events from local vendors and instructors. Participate in tastings from vendors including Yasso, Rx Bar, and Kind Snacks, and join in on classes benefitting nonprofit organizations, like a spin class benefitting the Susan G. Komen organization, and strength classes benefitting the Transition House. And of course, do yoga with goats.
