In the UK, it is Father’s Day on Sunday, 16th June – a day to honour fathers, celebrate fatherhood and the influence of father’s in society. Being a Dad of twin boys, I love celebrating this day with them. Over the past three years, as the boys have grown , I have seen how much they have learnt as I seek to be a positive male role model in their lives.
Yoga is at the heart & centre of me as a father. The ability to turn my gaze inwards as I ‘tune in’ to body, breath and mind in unison and use this positive energy to tackle the challenges of everyday life. I love to hear my boys saying ‘Daddy, I am doing yoga’ as they strike a Downward Dog pose. More importantly, I am instilling in them from an early age the importance of prioritising their physical and mental health & wellbeing.
Many of those that join me at my Yoga For Men classes are fathers themselves. I have seen first-hand how much of a difference yoga is making to many aspects of their lives.

I am keen to see more men practicing yoga, breaking down stereotypes and misconceptions that yoga is not for them. I want to see this community of YogaDads grow and have a special Father’s Day gift idea to encourage more men to join me on the mat.
I am offering a gift voucher of 3 Yoga For Men classes for £20 to be used from mid-June until the end of August. This includes at my Yoga For Men classes in Keynsham on Monday evenings and my new weekly Yoga For Cyclist classes in central Bristol and Keynsham – more on these classes coming very soon.
The gift voucher will be personalised and sent in time for Father’s Day. All the recipient needs to do is come along when they’re free and show their voucher. A warm welcome awaits from my friendly group that often claim to be the most inflexible in the world!
” What I particularly enjoy about the Yoga for Men classes is the sense of “we’re all chaps of a similar age, and we’re all in this together. “
