GREEN BAY (NBC 26) — Students at UW-Green Bay got a chance to stretch with baby goats on Friday.

The event, dubbed "Goat Flow," featured baby goats who meandered among a crowd of students doing yoga poses.

UWGB is just the latest place to feature the so-called "goat yoga" trend. It features people participating in a regular yoga class, except goats are allowed to wander around the class. Sometimes goats will stand on students during certain poses.

During Friday's event at UWGB, the class was broken up into three sessions: two sessions did stretching and the third was mainly focused on petting the goats.

The goat yoga trend has grown in popularity over the past few years, with events featured on farms across the country.
