Why Aqua Yoga

  • Do you experience recurring nagging aches and pains?
  • Are you interested in developing range of motion you can control along with integrated functional movement?
  • Does the idea of breathing more fully and breaking free of shallow breathing patterns to improve your well-being speak to you?

The aquatic yoga experience offered by Dallas Aqua Yoga is unlike any other. You will not simply be hanging out in the pool and stretching. You'll realize that the kind of yoga offered here is intelligently engineered and empowers you to discover what makes sense for your body. If something needs to be strengthened or released, you'll be able to adapt your experience and more importantly, take that insight with you and adjust your activities on land accordingly. And it doesn't matter how old you are - if you accept the fact that you are aging and experiencing the full effect of being upright in the gravitational field every day, then you will be delighted by what being in the water and practicing a curated breath and movement experience will give you. You may actually feel younger, experience less pain, move more freely and naturally stand up and sit with healthy posture without even having to think about it!
