What students have said...

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.

Who this course is for...


You’ve never done yoga before and heard it helps with pain or, you’ve done land yoga but struggled in class, whether it was the pace, all the hand and knee involvement, or getting on and off the floor.


You’re an experienced land yogi but unclear on how to adapt your practice to the pool, or you’re an experienced aquatics person looking to bring more mindfulness to your aquatic movement.


You're a yoga or aquatics professional who's curious about aqua yoga but aren't ready to commit to a full certification course

What other instructors have said...

Christa's course is very informative and she clearly loves what she does! Her explanations are easy to follow, and I like how she uses all the modalities (audio, video, writing) in her teaching.  In addition, she is very accessible and checks in with us frequently.


Yoga Instructor

I very enthusiastically recommend this online course. Christa’s instructions are careful and thorough. 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.

Aqua Yoga Specialist

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.
