Ann Patman, who owns the farm with her husband, got the idea from her time working at a dance studio.

Students would often come to visit the alpacas, so why not combine the two?

The farm has nine alpacas, and they enjoy the classes as much as the humans.

"They’re so friendly and the kids love them and they really love the kids," Patman told BuzzFeed Canada.

Classes include "Mommy, the Alpacas, & Me," "Poppin' Pacas" (a hip-hop class), and "Paca Pilates."

But the best part, obviously, is that the alpacas hang out while you work out.

"They’re not intrusive, but they come up to you and sniff you," said Patman.

Patman said they just make exercising way more fun and some routines even include stopping for some pets.

And so far, Patman says her students have been loving it, especially parents.

"The parents think it's hilarious. The little kids love it," said Patman. "And the alpacas love it because the kids are smaller than them."
