After yoga with alpacas and yoga with lemurs, the latest mix of exercise and animals is pilates with pigs. At Pennywell Farm in Devon, England, you can sign up for Piggy Pilates, which lets you practice pilates while surrounded by miniature pigs that are allowed to roam around between the mats and interact with participants.

Chris Murray, the farm’s owner, said, “Exercise is an important part of life so should never be boring. You can have a real giggle and still have a good workout. Everyone should exercise with a smile on their face and with miniature pigs running around, it’s impossible not to smile.”

Classes will be led by pilates instructor Harry Parke and are suitable for all ages and abilities. Every session is followed by breakfast and a chance to play with the pigs. The first of the monthly sessions starts on May 12 with limited spots available, so if you’re interested, you’d better reserve your spot now. Tickets are $45, and can be purchased online.
