Friendswood native and resident Rachel Henson opened her brick-and-mortar structure for Goat Yoga Houston in October. Henson started in the business, which offers yoga classes featuring baby goats, in June. Classes are offered every weekend at 3366 E. FM 528 Road, Ste. K in Friendswood, but Henson will periodically take the class on the road, for those who don’t live in Friendswood but are interested in trying goat yoga. Henson plays country music during the class, which is 45 minutes of taught yoga and 30 minutes of unstructured time, used either to practice more advanced yoga, or to take pictures with the goats. 713-578-0068. www.goatyogahouston.com
