5 Ways to Start an Aqua Yoga Practice…Even if you don’t own a pool

#1 Just do it!  Even if you own a pool, there are always obstacles.

#2 Practice one or two postures on land to learn the difference of how it feels in your body.

#3 Incorporate visualizations into your movements throughout the day.

#4  Apply yoga philosophy to all aspects of your life.

#5 Work one posture into the beginning or end of an aquatics class.

Applying these five tips to start an aqua yoga practice gets you going but how can you build on it to get some pool time?  Do you know a friend who would let you use their pool?  Most municipal pools have free swim hours for a very affordable fee, can you go there?  Can you join your local Y?  Pick a pool and practice.  You got this.
