DaddYoga: June 27

Father’s Feelings

Why Do DaddYoga?

If you’re a dad of young children, chances are you’ve been stressed. Hopefully not often! But let’s face it, kids have a lot of energy and require a lot of attention. To be a dad, you have to be a man of focus, commitment, and sheer will. Certainly, fatherhood is a joy. But it can be a joy that drains you physically and emotionally if you don’t take time to relieve some stress. And we all know “taking time” when you have small children can be a tricky task.

So that’s why we’re offering dads in Northeast Ohio an opportunity to de-stress — with their kid — using the power of yoga. DaddYoga is a FREE virtual yoga class with Judge William Dawson, an expert yoga instructor, motivational speaker, and municipal court judge in East Cleveland. Our next session will be held via Zoom on Sunday, June 27.

The program will begin at 10 a.m. with a 20-minute virtual yoga session. Then, Judge Dawson will offer some insights and encouragement to fathers about healthy living and other life goals.

But Wait — There’s More!

After yoga, participants will get to hear from and speak with some really cool people from the world of professional sports. On June 13, we heard from Major League Baseball agent Josh Yates — who has represented ballplayers all over the country, including in Cleveland — as he discussed his experiences as a single father while navigating the high-powered world of professional sports.

Next up, for the June 27 session, dads will meet with Bryson Haynes, senior manager of the Cleveland Cavaliersyouth sports outreach program and long-time professional in child mental health. During the event, Mr. Haynes will talk about his experience working with NBA teams to promote the health and well-being of children and families in Cleveland and Atlanta.

Other insights, resources, and surprises also will be in store! So come join us for DaddYoga and discover a bit more about what dads do.
