come aqua yoga play with me!

What does it feel like to move like a manta ray, to float like a starfish, to bend like seaweed, or to hold Warrior 3 in the water? Created by yoga teacher Sandi Higgins, Aqua Yoga Play combines vinyasa yoga, physical improv, and aquatic fitness to bring you an original and playful shapeshifting experience. We switch our yoga mats for the water and find the meditative movement of yoga in the buoyant aquatic realm. Connect with your inner ocean animal!Β Register here.

As we relax into a greater appreciation and recognition of all that we already are, and all that we already have, we inevitably develop a greater appreciation and a natural wonder, curiosity, and connection with the element of water – we are 3/4 made of water, our bodies and our planet! This valuable resource is not separate from our own nature. Thanks to all the Lightworkers and Water spirits who came to Aqua Yoga Play at the Colorado Athletic Club tonight, so much fun to play with you! πŸ™πŸŒŠπŸ™πŸŸπŸ‹πŸ³πŸ πŸ¦‘πŸ¦ˆπŸπŸ‘πŸ’βœ¨ #aquayogaplay #yogawithsandi #cac #water #aquatics #relaxation #play #imagination #movement #yoga #meditation #fortheloveofwater #watertherapy #health #wellness #liberation #environmentalstewardship #boulderyoga #boulderlightworkers

Thank you to my Aqua Yoga Play students today! We were 6 this afternoon and often when I have an even number of people in class I like to do partner exercises. It’s inspiring to see people connect in new ways – with themselves, with people they already know, or with people they are just meeting for the first time. In some sense, we are all always meeting for the first time (and if we can find that curiosity and fresh lens in our day-to-day interactions, we can feel more alive in general as we move out of habitual conditioning, and old patterns that may no longer feel groovy, into fresher mindsets). There is always something new to learn about ourselves and others. Two of my students today are massage therapists and in the final resting poses they gave each other neck massages under water. It looked so blissful. The water can be such a therapeutic medium. I have found in recovering from trauma that it can help us to nurture our true nature. In Aqua Yoga Play, we cultivate the mind-body-breath connection as we move conventionally and unconventionally, focusing on the nonjudgmental delight (instead of the pain, dissatisfaction, or fear) of being embodied. Join us Thursdays this Autumn at 12:30pm at the CAC Boulder @cacboulder πŸ™πŸŒŠπŸ’™ #aquayogaplay #yogawithsandi #fortheloveofwater
