A 2-day course.
Woga is the union of two words: water and yoga. It is based on yoga poses and stretches modified for warm water.
Thanks to decrease in gravity, water allows greater ease of movement, unblocks articulations, lengthens and melts muscles, and removes negative tensions, thereby preventing stress, insomnia and anxiety.
Water yoga is based on classic yoga poses and stretches, modified for standing in pool water, which is waist-to-chest high. You do not need to know how to swim.
Sessions are structured like their yoga equivalents on land: breathing, warm-up exercises, a series of poses, and a relaxation period. The difference is that you are in a warm water pool!
Focus of Woga 1&2 is Hatha Yoga in water (asanas in standing position, on the wall, in floating position, and under water), pranayama and meditation.
Prerequisites: No previous experience required (also no need to know how to swim).
Credits: Woga 1&2 (Yoga in Water) is recognized by WABA (Worldwide Aquatic Bodywork Association) and gives 12 supplementary hours of credit for registration with WABA and Watsu India.
