February Aqua Yoga Tips Videos

February Aqua Yoga Tips Videos

These are four aqua yoga tips videos I produced this month.  They’re designed to be samples of what’s possible with aqua yoga.

Mountain Pose

Mountain pose is the foundation of our practice. We need strong roots to be tall. It’s not just a metaphor, the action of learning to root our feet into the pool floor teaches us to maintain good posture, improve our balance, and know where our body is in space.

Shoulder Opener with a Kickboard

Shoulder retraction is something most of us need these days.  We spend a lot of time hunched over devices and need some work to counteract that. This video shows how to use a kickboard to get some opening across your chest, while still keeping grounded.

Walking Backwards in the Pool

Walking backwards in the pool is a great place to get dynamic hip extension. Adding that diagonal arm movement is a huge coordination challenge.  Everyone gets a kick out of the fact by about four steps, they’ve unknowingly transitioned back into a same side movement.

 

Half Moon Pose

Half Moon Pose is a struggle for so many people in land classes. In the water it’s a beautiful opportunity to be big, take up space, and sparkle like the moon it’s named after. Here’s a version with a kickboard for some support.
