What Students Have Said...

“Aqua yoga is my favorite, and most pleasurable form of exercise. If I don't do aqua yoga between my land yoga sessions, my balance is less reliable. ”

    Lover of yoga, books, and tea

    I had arthritis for more than 20 years before my diagnosis and had a hard time reconciling everything I'd achieved with all my joint damage. I gave my life long yoga practice the credit and now I help other people use the tools of yoga to manage their health. Aqua yoga is my focus because it is kind to people's joints and is so accessible. It's an easy way to start a yoga practice, it allows people who've lost a land practice to continue, and challenges people with an active land practice to explore their bodies in new ways.
