PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) -- Some South Philadelphia yoga participants shared their practice with some unique guests this weekend.

So, what is it like to do yoga with seven baby pigs?

"They're definitely relaxing,” explained one woman. “Even just like when we had to close our eyes and concentrate on our breathing even hearing the pitter patter.”

Susan Magidson, owner of Ross Mill Farm, brought the piglets for a visit from Bucks County to Yoga Hive, on East Passyunk Avenue.

"These pigs are almost six-months-old,” Magidson said. “They're in the 20-25 pound range."

Yoga Hive co-owner Gina Durante says these rescue pigs are available for adoption.

"The pigs need to socialize with people,” she said. “They love it just as much as the people do."

So how did these participants describe their yoga pig experience?

"I'd say they're feisty,” one man said. “They've been running around the whole time!"

"They would go under you, they would go over you," another woman added.

But Magidson says there are limits to what the pigs do in the studio.

"They are potty trained,” she said. “We have an area here that we're able to take them out."
