Floatation therapy, or sensory deprivation tanks, have taken off in popularity since I first wrote about my experience in 2018.

“Do one thing every day that scares you” — Eleanor Roosevelt. When I first read those words, I felt compelled to follow them. But who would actively choose to elicit fright?

Sure, some people have heard of goat yoga, but have you ever heard of farm yoga? My typical response to yoga is nama-stay out of it, which is the exact way I’ve led off prior columns on my yoga experiences (some feelings never change). However, when I was informed about yoga amid baby goats and
