AquaFit of Plano is the hosting facility for the aqua yoga classes. Being able to swim is not a requirement. The pool depth ranges from 3'6" to 4'6". We can accommodate up to 24 students in the pool; the dimensions of the pool are 25' x 50'. Water temperature ranges from 88-89 degrees and the air temperature is 80 - 84 degrees.
Though 80 - 84 degree air temperature sounds warm, it is the perfect balance to the water temperature being at 88-89 degrees. Not so sure? We invite you to try the first time for free.
If you are uncertain how the aqua yoga practice will affect your particular condition, we recommend you receive a personal consultation before attending your first group class. Please see more information here:

Aqua Yoga - Monday, Wednesday & Friday at 9:00 am
These classes are suitable for individuals who are interested in approaching their yoga practice with emphasis on moving from and with the breath. The class is taught with the Viniyoga approach to postures practice. The goal is to restore natural healthy curvature of the spine; the limbs of the body release and strengthen naturally as the relationship between breath and the spine is cultivated. The orientation is around the breath and spine first and then outward.
We have a very diverse population of students who benefit from these morning sessions. Some have no specific health concerns or issues but for others practicing yoga in the water is especially meaningful. Many of our students who used to have a land practice feel that they are at a point in their lives where practice in the water serves them better. We also have students who cannot practice inversions such as downward facing dog on land; however, they can enjoy "water dog" and more instead. In this class students can choose to not get their hair wet.
Here is a listing of the kinds of conditions some of our students have:
Herniated/bulging disc issues
Scoliosis/rod in back
Pregnancy past first trimester
Balance difficulties on land
High blood pressure/hypertension
Diabetes and/or insulin resistance
Glaucoma/detachment of retina
Workshops give the participant time to learn and discuss with the instructor the principles and techniques that are taught in the pool. Perfect for inquisitive students who really want to understand how to think about the aqua yoga practice. Extremely valuable and meaningful for yoga teachers who want to improve their teaching skills and establish depth to their own personal practice. CEUs are available to yoga teachers and aquatic professionals.
You are not required to become an AquaFit member to attend a workshop however AquaFit members are given a discount on workshop offerings provided by Dallas Aqua Yoga.
