The Aqua Yoga Deep Water Spinal Stability sequence is designed for deepwater work. It provides a lot of spinal length due to the nature of no-impact buoyant exercise in the deep end of the pool. It emphasizes length in your spine, builds core strength, and improves body awareness while challenging your balance. While being true to the forms and philosophy of yoga, the sequence also integrates the best principles of aquatic exercise such as moving in 360 degrees and challenging yourself with buoyancy and water viscosity.
The Aqua Yoga Deep Water Spinal Stability sequence contains 12 aqua yoga poses. Those postures include a warm-up plus a version of sun salutations with 5 additional postures. Half of the photography for this sequence is underwater shots to clearly show the postures and how to align your body in them. Mountain pose is the only pose in common between the two deepwater sequences I offer. You can find the companion sequence, Deep Water Aqua Yoga for Spinal Traction in this online store.
These laminated sequences are printed on heavy-duty cardstock. They’re laminated to be waterproof, durable, and safe for use poolside. The font is large so many people can use these without reading glasses. Being on a ring, it’s easy to flip through the cards and they won’t blow away on the pool deck. All the sequences also come with a spare plastic ring to prevent rusty rings in saltwater pools.
You will need one pool noodle and a deep water flotation belt to do this sequence. My aqua yoga sequences take 45 minutes to practice.
