[WATCH] Goat yoga is killing stress for this Swedish community
Yoginis in the capital of Sweden are turning to goats to help them achieve their best yoga poses.
Goat yoga is the latest zen trend making waves in the global fitness community.
It's been described as a new and fun way for animal lovers to keep fit.
Goat yoga - or "goga" as some are calling it - is taking off in Stockholm, where participants practise their positions in a park as the animals wander around them and relax at their feet.
The Stockholm class was set up by Malin Tyren Bakken, who first heard about goga when visiting family in New York.
She has been running the goga class classes in Lidingo, a suburb of Stockholm, and says goats love interacting with humans.
