What is Aqua Yoga?

Develop strength and balance with this relaxing form of aquatic exercise

Aqua Yoga is a low-impact aquatic exercise, performing Yoga poses in warm water. Aqua Yoga poses simultaneously help you to develop:

  • Strength
  • Static balance
  • Range of motion increase

This is accomplished in coordination with diaphragmatic breathing and long exhalations.

Aqua Yoga is a gentle and very low impact aquatic activity.

Aqua Yoga takes the principles and movements of Yoga and adapts them to the water environment.

  • With the release of gravity the body is able to find the optimum stretch.
  • By using the rhythm of the breath an inner sense of relaxation can be achieved.
  • Aqua Yoga strengthens and tones the body whilst relieving tensions and renewing energy.
  • There is a beneficial cycle between the mind, the body and the emotions.
