More About Tyler Morella

Tyler lives in Ringwood, New Jersey. He is a bartender, a business owner and a member of the Air Force Reserve. He previously served in the Marines for 7 years, and is now pursuing a job in law enforcement. He was raised by parents who absolutely adore animals and passed on that love to him. He grew up with and has always lived around animals, including horses, chickens, pigs, goats, bunnies, dogs, cats, and more. Tyler firmly believes that animals give off an energy that you just cannot quite match! This appreciation and love led to his decision to jump on the goat yoga bandwagon! Tyler says "these little guys and girls can manage to put a smile on anyone's face. I challenge anyone to be around my 6 goats and not smile."

More About the Goats

5 of the goats are Nigerian dwarf and 1 of them is a Nubian. These 6 are the ones that are mainly used at the yoga classes, but there are also some goats that live on a family friend's farm that like to tag along to the classes as well. The 6 regulars are named Mini Mocha, Baby Bells, Joeybagadonuts, Mika, Shay, and Coconut; the little ones that live at the other farm are Rotty, Buck, and Diesel. Tyler says "All of these goats have a forever home! There is no milking or eating of any of our animals. They have a happy and comfortable life with us, and we do not believe in our goats "aging out". Their personalities will not change much, just their size. Every year we will have new babies because our females will be bred, and the babies will come to the yoga classes when they are ready. But the goats that have been doing this from the start will always be involved as long as they are up to it!"
