These are a collection of infographics on how to treat parts of your body while you’re doing water yoga.
A picture is worth a thousand words so each is designed to be self-explanatory. The goal is for you to be as effective as possible when you get in the pool.
The most important thing to remember is these do’s and don’ts are built around the idea of Ahimsa (being kind to yourself) and Svadhyaya (self-knowledge) so you’re doing what’s right for your body. None of these ideas are based on form over function. It doesn’t matter what you look like during water yoga, it matters how you feel. These are ideas to keep you comfortable and stable, rather than focusing on how you look.
