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.

What Christa's Students Say...

“Strength and balance two simple words unless you don't have them, a broken ankle and hip took them from me. After 5 surgeries I still can't walk normally and my left ankle has extreme pronation. I started aqua yoga at the beginning of 2016 and in three months I have so much less pain. You have made a beautiful difference in my life. ”

“Excellent introduction to a completely new (to me!) approach to yoga. Christa is a gifted teacher. I like the mix of presentation formats (print, video, audio), and felt they helped get the concepts of Aqua yoga across.”
