This low impact, non-rebounding water workout is an excellent choice for persons who cannot withstand the constant repetition of rebounding in water classes. The hopping, jumping and running movements so prevalent in most aqua classes are replaced by the muscle specific, precise movements performed through a full range of motion using yoga and Pilates-based exercise techniques. This workout includes an abundance of ideas for flexibility and non-impact, shallow water toning. Improve your strength and flexibility, and posture without the splash or the rebound.
Learn to plug water-specific flexibility, core strengthening and joint lubrication moves into your warm-water workouts. A great option for individuals with health conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia and joint issues, or use a collection of the exercises for the cool down/flexibility section of your aquatic exercise classes.
