Why Teach Aqua Yoga?
This innovative modality was designed by yoga teacher and Swami, Camella Nair. She designed this program mostly to bring the physical practice of yoga to those that found yoga on the mat too challenging or limiting for their bodies. Her dedication to the form of yoga inspired her to write a book; "Aqua Kriya Yoga". She also has been certified through The Yoga Alliance and AFPA to teach this class to yoga teachers and water fitness instructors.
If you are passionate about your students and want to help them find more ease in their bodies and peace of mind, then this is an excellent practice to add to your teaching repertoire. This will allow you as a teacher to grow your business, build your student base, as well as help you to bring your passion for what you do to help others in a new and effective way.

"I am a stroke survivor. For the last fourteen years, I have survived and for the last fourteen year I have been involved in therapy. I have tried and done everything. I rode a horse, had acupuncture and massages. I stretched, worked out with weights, and I swam. Water yoga is remarkable. My instructor stresses breathing. I had forgotten what that meant."
