Why Aqua Yoga

“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.

For me, living with arthritis, and teaching yoga are integrated. I had arthritis for more than 20 years before I knew about it and had a hard time reconciling everything I'd achieved, and my relative lack of pain, with all my joint damage. I gave my life long yoga practice the credit and now I help other people get more comfort in their joints and use the tools of yoga to manage their health.

I want you to feel empowered to better your health and well being with an aqua yoga practice.”

“Words to live by: An hour doing water yoga with Christa makes for a good day. I am very enthusiastically recommending this online course. Christa’s instructions are careful and thorough, in class and on the video. Christa’s background and expertise cannot be over-emphasized. Through experience and training she has developed methods of safely leading individuals with physical limitations as they explore exercise effectively. Sincere thanks, Christa.
