Unfortunately, there is no research on the benefits of aqua yoga and it’s efficacy for arthritis patients compared to aquatic exercise in general or compared to land based yoga. I do think it’s important to keep up on related research to keep one’s practice and teachings evidence based.
As I come across papers relevant to aqua exercise and arthritis, I will post them and hopefully one day, we’ll see some research on aqua yoga. I’ve kept this list current by excluding research more than 10 years old.
