Hot Tub Yoga 101: Positions, Benefits & More

Are you looking for a new approach to relaxation?

Hot tub yoga might be right for you! If you thought that yoga was relaxing on its own, wait until you try it inside of a hot tub. Of course, you’ll need to narrow down the poses that you can perform to ensure that your head stays above water, but once you get into the swing of it, you’ll wonder why you didn’t try it sooner. Take a look at some of the information in this article to get started.

What is Water Yoga?

Water yoga is exactly as it sounds, yoga that is performed within the water. Why combine the two? The answer is simple, the benefits! Water yoga offers a new approach to relaxation, meditation and improved health at any age.

Health Benefits of Spa Yoga

  • Eased aches and pains
  • Improved sleep patterns
  • Reduced muscle tension
  • Improved flexibility
  • Better balance
  • Increased mobility
  • Stronger muscles
  • Weight maintenance
  • Less stress

How Does it Work?

The buoyancy of the water provides you with the feeling of weightlessness. This new-found freedom is due to the pressure and weight that is lifted from your body, due to the buoyant properties of the water. This can enable your body to move around freely and even perform motions that may have otherwise been difficult on dry land. By creating a more comfortable environment to do yoga, more people may take part that otherwise never would have thought twice about it.

From there, the jets and heat work together to help your body relax and let go of built-up tension. Some of the tightest and most stress-prone areas of your body are targeted by the jets, while the rest of your body is soothed by the heat and swirling motions of the water.
