Types of Yoga: Aqua Yoga
01/20/2010 | 12:00 AM
Like aqua aerobics, aqua yoga is simply the practice of traditional yoga in water. Aqua yoga features all of the benefits of yoga-on-land: it connects body, mind and spirit, it builds flexibility and muscle tone, and it soothes and reduces physical and emotional stress. But aqua yoga has some additional advantages. Practicing yogic poses underwater can help to prevent strain to the muscles and injury to the joints. On warm summer days practicing yoga in a pool (or any natural body of water) will prevent overheating and dehydration. On top of which, the sound of the splash of water adds a natural, soothing element to a practice intended to soothe body and soul. Beginners to yoga should start with these three classic poses. Once you've mastered the basics, you can advance to more complicated positions and sequences - in water or on land.
