You’re kidding: Washington cemetery hosts goat yoga among the headstones

A gentle breeze blew through the Congressional Cemetery in Southeast Washington, a more than two-century-old site whose weathered headstones stand in tribute to some of the District’s most notable residents, from John Philip Sousa to Marion Barry. It was a balmy Saturday morning and the atmosphere was solemn — except for the bleating of no fewer than 15 baby goats.

They were there, of course, for yoga.
