It’s Father’s Day: Look Alive Dads!


As Father’s Day approaches, we’re reminded of the invaluable role that dads play in our lives —  especially those who are raising boys to be good men. Beyond traditional gifts and cards, there’s an opportunity to celebrate this special day in a unique and meaningful way: through yoga.


For fathers, participating in yoga with their kids offers a host of benefits:

  1. Bonding Time: Finding quality time to spend with our children can be challenging. Kids yoga provides a unique opportunity for dads to connect with their little ones in a fun and meaningful way.
  2. Better Health: Yoga isn’t just about stretching and posing; it’s also about cultivating mindfulness and confidence. By practicing yoga together, fathers and children can reap the physical, mental, and emotional benefits of the practice.
  3. Lead by Example: Fathers are powerful role models for their children. By demonstrating a commitment to health and wellness through yoga, dads instill lifelong habits of resilience and self-motivation in their kids.

How to create a magical Father’s Day kids’ yoga experience:

  1. Choose a Setting: Whether it’s a sunny backyard, a local park, or a cozy living room, choose a setting conducive to relaxation and play. Try the Palace of Fine Arts!
  2. Craft a Kid-Friendly Sequence: Keep the yoga poses simple and engaging, incorporating playful elements like animal poses, partner stretches, and imagination-based activities. We’ll show you how.
  3. Encourage Participation: Encourage dads and kids to support each other and celebrate their accomplishments, fostering a sense of camaraderie and teamwork.

After the yoga session, honor fathers with small gestures of appreciation, whether a homemade card, a heartfelt thank-you, or a special treat. By incorporating kids’ yoga into the festivities, we can create lasting memories of connection, joy, and well-being. 


Father’s Day is a time to honor and celebrate the wonderful dads in our lives. Thanks to all the dads who share the mental load of parenting. Take one dad’s much-needed advice to other men on supporting their partners. It’s not that complicated. 


So this Father’s Day, step onto the yoga mat with your children and embark on a journey of discovery and togetherness. The rewards enrich the body, mind, and heart for years.
