Water is a nourishing element of healing, support and creativity.
Aqua Yoga is a fun, gentle and often more subtle form of yoga that many bodies can enjoy. The pool is an ideal environment for relieving pain and stiffness. In the water, joints are supported allowing free movement while also acting as resistance to help strengthen muscles.
Classes are held in warmer pools (85 – 95 degrees). Aqua Yoga combines flowing movements with longer held poses. Yoga poses are modified for the pool by turning planes on their sides, using the pool wall, buoyancy and noodles. Yoga in the water challenges balance and illuminates the quality of breath.
All you need is a swimsuit, a towel and curiosity. Putting your head underwater or swimming is not required.
