Piglets and Pilates at Pennywell Farm
Who says exercise can’t be fun?
Pennywell Farm has introduced something a little different when it comes to working out with animals.
With Goat Yoga having made its way across the pond several years ago, exercising with animals has become a bit of a thing. Not to be left behind, Pennywell has launched Piggy Pilates to the world.
Combining the best of a stunning farm location, animals and exercise the classes are already attracting a lot of interest and with Pennywell miniature pigs joining in, what’s not to love?
Pilates teacher, Harry Parkes leads the sessions which are followed by breakfast and piggy cuddles.
Harry explains that while there is plenty of fun to be had, Pilates has many benefits including improving posture, movement quality, mobility, flexibility, mental cognition and core strength.
Pennywell’s owner Chris Murray says, “Exercise is an important part of life so should never be boring. You can have a real giggle and still have a good workout.
“Everyone should exercise with a smile on their face and with miniature pigs running around, it’s impossible not to smile.”
It is suitable for all ages and abilities and Harry’s classes are designed to be relaxed, non-intimidating and welcoming to all.
