5 Reasons to Take your Dad to Yoga

1. It makes the perfect Father’s Day gift
Many people struggle with what to get their dad for Father’s Day; does he really need another striped tie or checked shirt? Why not give him an experience? An experience is the perfect gift for the man who has everything! Every yogi knows that there is no better experience than a yoga class. Whether you choose from a gentle class, a yoga flow class, power or insanity, there are plenty of great options to choose from.

2. Yoga is a great bonding activity
The family that sweats together stays together! Your dad has most likely heard all about your love of yoga class and your latest inversion milestone, so why not give him a glimpse into your world. By letting him into the world you love, not only will he start to understand your passion for yoga, but the bond between you two will strengthen. Want to build the bond even stronger? Try an Acro Yoga class to strengthen the trust between you and your dad.

3. It’s an amazing stress reliever
Does your dad always seem stressed? Maybe he’s constantly concerned about deadlines at work or projects around the house; but by giving him the gift of yoga, you are helping him de-stress, which he (and all those around him) will definitely thank you for!

4. It will improve his health
As reported by the European Journal of Preventative Cardiology, yoga has been shown to decrease the risk of heart disease equally as well as conventional forms of cardio exercise. Not only that, yoga has also been proven to improve your triglycerides, resting heart rate, cholesterol and blood pressure. What better gift to give the man you love than the gift of health.

5. You’ll make lasting memories
Memories are priceless. Whether your dad becomes a yoga regular or he sticks to his typical gym routine, you’ll both always remember your dad’s first attempt at yoga. Maybe you were in awe of his balance during Warrior 3 or maybe you laughed together when he couldn’t even hold Down Dog, but you will always have those memories together that will last a lifetime.
