why I do it

Let's get stronger together

For Christa, living with arthritis, and teaching yoga are integrated. She credits her yoga practice for her lack of pain and specifically water yoga because it’s kind to people's joints. It's easy for beginners to start, and challenges advanced practitioners in new ways.  Being passionate about water yoga, she wants to see water yoga in every community worldwide, so others can achieve the benefits of yoga in the water.

What students say...

Water Yoga Class Student

I am so happy to have found your aqua yoga class. I never thought I would like or could do yoga on land, and never tried it. You make class fun, keep my mind learning and helped me so much with my pain.

Water Yoga Course Student

I truly enjoyed this course and Christa's ability to convey knowledge on this topic.  She's an incredible educator.

Water Yoga Certification Student

Christa's training for water yoga goes way beyond teaching yoga in the water.  The time we spent together was beneficial for me for my land yoga.  Her teaching style is very inclusive and supportive.
