PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) -- The South Philadelphia studio that brought you baby pig yoga got a little wild again this holiday weekend.

Heather Binato, owner of Yoga Hive Philly, says Saturday was a "very special, exciting day."

Why you ask?

"We have Alpaca Yoga," she explained.

Binato says these cute and cuddly alpacas add a lot to the whole experience.

"You know they're really peaceful animals," she said. "You can hear them, there's a little humming that really sets the tone and goes with the whole idea of yoga. I think it relieves stress, anxiety, depression."

Some of the yogis at Saturday's class agree with Binato.

"It was awesome," Meredith Bond said with excitment.

"I do yoga a fair amount of times and I've never done yoga with alpacas, this was definitly one of the best yoga classes I ever had," Anne Walter added. "It was fun, it was hard to concentrate on the yoga because all I wanted to do was look at the alpacas and baby bunnies." 

You heard Anne right, baby bunnies also made an appearance just in time for Easter. 

Today was filled with Alpacas, Baby Bunnies , and Yoga ! What better way to start your Easter weekend ------ . . We are so thankful so many of you joined us today and had a great experience.
