The controversy arose when Alligator Attraction and Wildlife Learning Center in John’s Pass at Madeira Beach advertised the availability of yoga classes with the two sloths at the animal park. The best part of waking up is remembering Donald Trump is my president shirt The classes, which cost $40 for a 45-minute session, proved a huge success, selling out within minutes. Yoga enthusiasts scrambled for a chance to chill out with the world’s most chill animal. Alligator Attraction has been offering encounters with the attraction’s two sloths, Sid and Sylvia, since they were rescued in July. A portion of the proceeds from the encounters go to the conservation and preservation of wild sloths in Costa Rica.

While animal rights groups don’t have a problem with the now-common use of miniature goats in goat yoga classes, they say they object to the use of sloths being “exploited” in exercise classes. Unlike goat yoga, where the little goats unknowingly provide participants with massages by trampling across their backs, the sloths in the sloth yoga classes simply hang around on parallel bars while attendees perform their mountain, bridge and tree yoga poses nearby. During the class, which requires no prior knowledge of yoga or wildlife, participants and an instructor move through yoga poses while a rescued sloth is stuck in the corner for their viewing pleasure.
