Why Aqua Yoga...

  • I started doing yoga 30 years ago to keep my back healthy despite a difficult job.  Yoga was purely for the exercise.
  • It turns out I'd had multiple kinds of arthritis the whole time, and yoga was doing a lot more for me than keeping me limber.  Yoga was maintaining my health.
  • In my journey towards being a yoga teacher I worked with teachers who taught me yoga had a powerful philosophical outlook. Yoga was making me a better person.
  • Being a yoga teacher allowed me to make a difference in other people's lives.  Yoga was improving not just my life, but my community.
  • Specializing in aqua yoga, I discovered my passion that I now share with others.  Yoga, specifically aqua yoga, gave me a mission to help others achieve these transformational changes.

Yoga can be many different things.  You can see my journey has run the whole spectrum of what yoga has to offer. The important thing is it meets you where you're at right now, whether you're a beginner or more experienced.   Aqua yoga amplifies your progress because of the healing properties of water.

Beyond the stretch, you get...

What students say about the course...

Intro to Aqua Yoga is an excellent course formatted for anyone: yogi, non-yogi, teacher, swimmer, non-swimmer. It is organized beautifully- from the workbook, to the videos, to the sequences. Christa has put her heart and soul into this class.  I highly recommend taking Intro to Aqua Yoga with Christa!

How other instructors describe the course...

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.

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.  I 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 that journey inspired me to help others 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.
