Water yoga is easy yoga poses in a shallow pool, using standing poses only. This will make positions and stretching easier, and reduces risk of injury.
It is easier and safer to stretch into position with the water’s natural buoyancy, and this also helps reduce the risk of injury. For safety purposes, you should not practice underwater breathing while doing water yoga.
Pool noodles can also be used for support and balance, especially for beginners. They can also help while learning advanced poses.
There are six poses you can do to practice easy and safe water yoga that are described in the blog: Tree, lunge, hand to toe, chair, warrior, and big step. Invite friends and family for these easy, safe, and fun exercises!
- There are a lot of poses to be used when it comes to the pool.
- Being able to stretch your legs will be helped in the water.
- Stepping exercises can be used in a good way under water.
“Water’s natural buoyancy makes it easier to stretch into position, and reduces any risk of falling or twisted ankles.”

I’ve been doing this for years. It was hard at first since there were no instruction to interchange with floor yoga. I realized that after becoming proficient at stand up positions, I was able to start interchange the floor excercises.
At the time, I wished there had been a book or instructional pages.

I used utube and watched video clips of yoga water exercises. I found a couple of water therapy books with section of water yoga. Then I made my own regime. It just starting to get popular in the water.
