Aqua Yoga: 3 Healthy Benefits of Taking a Water Yoga Class! by camellanair
Granny in a bathing cap jumping up and down? This may be the image the mind congers up when it thinks about exercising in the water. A lot has changed over the years in many arenas. Aquatics and yoga are no exceptions. We are living longer and, if we have sustained a lifetime of yoga practice, rather than give it up, why not take it into the water?
- We get more bang for our effort, burning twice the amount of calories than on land
- Reduce edema just by being in the water
- Work all muscle groups in pairs rather than individually
This means that we can enjoy the rest of our lives doing whatever else brings us joy. Check out pools near you for group exercise classes and Aqua Yoga Therapy in warmer pools. None listed? No problem. Find local aqua yoga teachers and regional training events.
