Aqua Yoga

Drawing on the many parallel benefits of swimming and yoga, Makara Swim & Yoga combines two beautiful disciplines into one dynamic practice.

Aqua yoga adapts the postures and principles of yoga, including breathing and mindfulness, to an aquatic environment.

Classes are challenging, energetic, forgiving and restorative all at the same time.

See Makara's Booking Page for next availability.

Aqua Yoga:

  • Stimulates the lymphatic system.
  • Strengthens the whole body.
  • Improves range of motion and flexibility.
  • The buoyancy of the water allows the stress of weight to be taken off of the joints, making balancing or standing postures feel more obtainable and helping well practiced yogis to find a deeper stretch.
  • Aqua yoga is beneficial on a mental, emotional and spiritual level. Water is healing and can cultivate a greater connection with the physical body.

Why Try Aqua Yoga?

If you're an avid swimmer or water lover, aqua yoga will enliven your relationship with water, appealing to your playful side and offering you further opportunities to immerse yourself in the restorative qualities of water.

If you're a yogi, submerging yourself in water is a unique and valuable way to bring stillness to your mind. Practicing in water can cultivate deeper and more mindful experience of the asanas.

If you're a seasoned Aqua Aerobics attendee, you may be interested in diversifying your fitness regime and trying something new and unique, enjoying a restorative twist on your usual aqua activities.

If you have an injury and/or find exercise limiting, Aqua Yoga may offer you opportunities you have been longing for. As with all types of yoga, taking personal responsibility over your body is of utmost importance. We can discuss adaptations and challenges you may face engaging in aqua yoga before you take your first class and collaborate appropriately to ensure you have positive experiences.
