(ABC 6 News) – This Saturday the public is invited to relax and unwind with some yoga, on an alpaca farm. It’s the third year Pauley Alpaca Company in Rochester is hosting the event.

Ten years ago, the Pauley’s passion for alpacas began and continues to grow. The wife and husband first started out with these animals for fun and now host open houses along with yoga sessions.

June 25 from 9-10 a.m., attendees will experience an instructor-led beginner session as the alpacas roam free. PAC said to bring your own yoga mat, towel, or blanket to the pasture.

Co-founder Brett Pauley recalls the interactions between attendees and their alpacas, "There’s one named Eleanor in particular. She’s kind of locally famous among the people that attend the alpaca yoga. She tends to just go in and find someone that she likes, and just sits down next to her – or them for about half an hour. And then just lays there for everyone to take pictures with her."

Besides these relaxing yoga sessions, the farm has goats, a horse, and ducks on the property.

Following yoga on Saturday, PAC will host an open house for those that attend or separately just want to meet the animals until 2 p.m.
