Why teach

aqua yoga

Expand your income

As a yoga teacher,  aqua yoga can reduce the seasonality of your income.  Lots of teachers face student declines during the summer - summer is the busiest season for aqua yoga and expands your offerings to more locations and more people.

Expand who you serve
There's a huge percentage of the population who is not well served by traditional mat yoga - aqua yoga is accessible to them.  Aqua yoga is kinder on your body to teach as an aquatics professional and expands your offerings.
Expand your skillsets

Working in the medium of water expands your teaching skills and makes you a better teacher of land yoga.  Adding aqua yoga to existing aquatics programs helps you bring in new clients and offer existing clients new classes.

How to  Market a Niche Yoga Training

Specializing is fantastic but how will you share your new expertise with others?

That's exactly what we cover in this training so you can take your new specialty and not only share your excitement but also showcase your expertise and market your new offerings. We will also cover how to integrate this new specialty into your existing brand.

 With Amanda Mckinney, from Marketing Yoga with Confidence

this course is for you if you've thought...

  • you're a yoga teacher who's started to struggle in your land practice due to injury or health
  • you're an aquatics professional and all the demoing from the pool deck is taking a toll so you're looking for mellower teaching opportunities
  • you want people with arthritis, MS, joint replacements and movement limitations to succeed in your classes

words from aqua yoga trainees

It's a very well organized training with no time wasted.  The manual is comprehensive and very useful.  Also the instructor is deeply experienced, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and responsive.

Christa's training is comprehensive and well informed.  Her passion is obvious and her willingness to share her experience is helpful.

Christa is extremely knowledgeable about how different land and water yoga is!  This a great forum and excellent training.

Do I really need an aqua yoga training?

I'm already an RYT i can just teach yoga in the pool 

if it's in the pool it's not really yoga

Are there pre-training materials

i'm an aquatics instructor so i'll just add a couple yoga stretches at the end of my classes and no one will know the difference 

i teach working professionals and love HIIT.  aqua yoga is only for seniors so it's not my demographic
