Hydro Yoga and Aqua Yoga

What Is Aqua Yoga?

As the name implies, aqua yoga, also referred to as water yoga, involves practicing yoga in the water. In most cases, aqua yoga is done in an indoor or outdoor swimming pool, but you can do aqua yoga in other bodies of water, such as a hot tub or spa, lake, pond, or ocean. 

What Is Hydro Yoga?

Same as Aqua Yoga, they are very similar, but the temperature of the pool for Hydro Yoga should be between 30 to 34 C, with much more attention to healing and recuperation.


Due to the effects that being in the water has on the body, aqua yoga and Hydro Yoga are thought to be a particularly calming, peaceful, and restorative type of yoga.

Lymphatic sytem

 Lung capacity

Profound state of relaxation and inner calm

Aids in reducing pain since the buoyancy of water lifts pressure off the joints and muscles.

Increased blood flow and reduced inflammation in your muscles and joints can both be achieved with the use of warm water.

As the water supports your body weight and lets you work against gravity. Enhances perception as you learn and become aware of the movements of your body in a confined space

By reducing stiffness and tightness through water pressure.

Can be increased by the water’s increased resistance to movement.

Studies show that water resistance combined with muscle movements generates a natural massage that helps drain the entire lymphatic system. 

Increases lung capacity and oxygen assimilation as the high pressure exerts constraint on the abdomen and restricts diaphragmatic movement.

You can acquire a profound state of relaxation and inner calm by concentrating only on the motions of your body and your breathing
