What you'll do
This is a virtual, online experience with Hamish, Dougal, and Lochie the sheep. Although they’re naughty sheep, this peaceful experience in our farmyard will help you to relax with breathing exercises and meditation. First we will meet online and chat via Zoom. You will come with me while I feed the mischievous sheep in their cozy barn. You will see them up close, hear birdsong, and see the hens pottering about. I will tell you some sheep stories, and you can ask me questions. Please bring your own sheep fun fact to share, and use the chat sidebar to engage with fellow guests. These baaaad boys have appalling table manners, so you might like to join them with your own snacks. After they have eaten, these lovelies come right up to the camera for snuggles. It is very calming to become part of the flock and to look into the half-closed eyes of a contented sheep. We’ll take a cue from these cuddly creatures, learning some therapeutic breathing exercises to relax and virtually escape to the calm of our farm. My yoga instructor daughter Rivkah will then lead a 10-15 minute mindful meditation with the sounds of nature to soothe you. We'll teach you some de-stress techniques to use in your daily life. Then we’ll tiptoe away before sheep Lochie starts shouting for more cuddles.

Hello from beautiful Loch Lomond, Scotland. I'm a longtime Airbnb home and Experiences host. I’m passionate about raising Herdwick sheep with kindness and run a hilarious five-star sheep experience called Tea with Naughty Sheep https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/314180. We have a busy family home where we grow food and keep hens for a sustainable, wholesome lifestyle. Professionally I work in healthcare, specializing in treating anxiety and stress, and as a confidence coach for professional musicians, offering workshops at conservatories throughout the UK. I’ll be using my expertise to teach you relaxation techniques. My daughter Rivkah works as a wellbeing coordinator. She also specializes in yoga and meditation and is registered with the Yoga Alliance. She’s designed meditation programs for leading gym chains.
