AQUA POLE/KICKBOXING 

Martial arts and kickboxing based workouts are changing how we think about Aquatic fitness! The benefits of integrating martial arts moves into pool workouts is that buoyancy reduces impact. Jumping moves that were not possible for some participants on land can be performed in water. The resistance of water also slows down movements. Participants are less likely to hyperextend knee and elbow joints, reducing the risk of injury. Here are tips on how to introduce these moves into your classes for a great, total body workout.

WATER YOGA 

A gentle and very low impact aquatic activity. Aqua Yoga takes the principles and movements of Yoga and adapts them to the water environment. With the release of gravity the body is able to find the optimum stretch. By using the rhythm of the breath an inner sense of relaxation can be achieved.
