Aqua Yoga Certification
Learn to teach aqua yoga within community
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 also 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.

With Amanda Mckinney
this course is for you if you've thought...
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.
I'm already an RYT can't I just teach the yoga
I know in the pool
If you've tried yoga in the pool, you quickly found out
it's harder than you thought.
Questions that come up a lot are how do I stop floating away, or if you can't do inversions and seated postures,
how do you fill 45-minutes?
Aqua yoga is very much a combined discipline that has unique teaching skillsets that you'll learn over the weekend.
I'm an aquatics instructor who only teaches HIIT so I'll just add a couple yoga stretches at the end of my classes
Yoga is so much more than just a set of stretches. People haven't practiced yoga for over 2000 years because they love a good lunge. They practice yoga to do all 8 limbs, so we will be spending time on practicing and teaching all the limbs to be able to accomplish a complete practice for a mixed-level audience. You'll be able to teach demanding or gentle aqua yoga.
If it's in the pool isn't really yoga
Nowhere in the yoga sutras does it say you have to practice yoga on a mat. You need to be committed to following the sutras and showing up in your practice.
Aqua yoga is 100% in the spirit of yoga; it just uses a different medium to practice in.
