Father’s Day is rapidly approaching and that usually means a last minute panic to find the perfect gift for the man who has given you everything. Instead of opting for the stereotypical gifts like a restaurant gift card, coffee cup or #1 Dad trophy, why not treat your pops to an aerial yoga experience? Contrary to popular belief, aerial yoga is not just for the ladies! Gentlemen can enjoy a wide range of benefits from joining an aerial yoga class. Here are our top 4 reasons why men should try aerial yoga…

Serious Strength Building

Whether he’s carrying the kids or hauling his favorite tools around, every Dad could use a little extra strength to help keep the family going! Aerial yoga provides a unique way to practice toning muscles and strength conditioning without lifting a single weight. In an aerial yoga class, he can target hard to reach muscle groups in the arms, core and lower body like never before. In fact, he may even be surprised at how much stronger he feels after just a few classes!

Gentle On The Joints

Unlike more traditional types of exercise, aerial yoga allows you to become weightless in your fabric.  That means you can still enjoy deep flexibility and mobility training without putting added pressure on your joints! As we age, it can be difficult to find safe ways to practice flexibility without putting too much stress on our bodies. If you have a Dad who suffers from past injuries, stiff joints or just needs to loosen up a bit, an aerial yoga class is the perfect way for him to improve his mobility and enjoy some much needed stretching. 

Deep Relaxation

Relaxing in an Aerial Hammock

What’s more relaxing than floating away in your own personal cocoon? With everything that Dads juggle in their lives, it’s important for him to have some time to himself to relax and unwind. Aerial yoga is one of the best ways to escape the stress of daily life and take in a few moments of weightless zen. After just a little bit of time spent relaxing in an aerial hammock, he’ll feel refreshed, renewed and ready to tackle anything!

Quality Time

Quality Time in Aerial Yoga

Physical health benefits aside, one of the greatest gifts you can give your Dad is some quality time with YOU! Maybe he’s heard you rave about aerial yoga for a while, but wasn’t even sure what it was. When you take him along to a class, you both get the opportunity to create new memories and share an experience that you’ll be talking about for years to come. Whether he really takes flight or you spend the entire class giggling, there’s no better gift than the time you spend together.


Most Dads can be notoriously difficult to shop for, but that doesn’t mean you have to settle for boring, ordinary Father’s Day gifts! Aerial yoga classes can be the perfect gift idea for Dads of all ages, shapes and sizes! Once they’ve had a taste of being in the air, they might even find themselves coming back for more.
