Develop an optimal core stabilization strategy in this AY fundamentals class to improve posture and kinesthesia. Move with greater ease and lessen the likelihood of developing compensatory strategies that lead to tightness, dysfunction, and eventually pain.

The way we move on the SUP reveals the strategies we use to stabilize the core during daily activities. In AY Basics, we are able to correct common compensations one may have adopted unconsciously, and teach optimal core stabilization strategies so that the body becomes balanced and neutral once again.


This is a high-intensity, low-impact class can be done on the SUP and indoors using resistance bands and our specialized Aqua Firma Stability Boards. We combine the movements of Yoga, Pilates and Functional Training to stabilize the joints and to strengthen the legs, arms & core – specifically the back & side body.

Build total-body strength and stability in this dynamic and powerful class. Prepare to sweat from the deep muscle burn, get an endorphin high and a centered mind after class.

This FOUNDATIONS class will help you gain a deep understanding of the alignment and techniques of each posture, and prepares your mind and body for Aqua Firma on the SUP (water).

The Intermediate class is similar to the Foundation class but is done on the water and doesn’t use resistance bands.

It has a slower pace and has more static holds. The emphasis is on developing balance and proprioception as well as strength, stability and mobility on the SUPs.

The Advanced class is also done on the water and doesn’t use resistance bands.

The pace is faster and has a higher intensity for cardiovascular endurance, then slowing down towards the end as we introduce arm balance postures and inversions.


The AY Primary Series is an alternative therapeutic vinyasa krama sequence that is accessible to students of all levels and traditions. This series will help you rebalance energetically, psychologically, and physically.

It focuses on the pliancy of the shoulders, upper back, hips, groin, lower spine and abdomen, which will feel awake and alive after moving gently through the postures. It also takes pressure off the neck, shoulders and wrists.

As a softer and gentler asana practice, this yin-yang class provides a balance to the more powerful Aqua Firma class. By practicing this alternative sequence regularly, you can decrease the likelihood of strain and overuse injury, and encourage the development of your intuitive faculty within your own yoga practice.

The AY Intermediate Series emphasizes the hips and lower back in a particular way. By eliminating the emphasis on forward bending and focusing on leg and abdominal strength, the hips are opened and the lower back supported. The standing postures also minimize the emphasis on the hamstring muscle group, making it useful for such conditions as sciatica and other lower back issues associated with forward bending.

The central aspect of this series is back bending, leading towards simhasana or Lion pose. There are a number of components that help facilitate back bending, and each of these aspects combine to form the total of this series.

The AY 3rd series is designed to facilitate advanced postures such as lotus, drop backs, splits and handstand. It is a strong practice intended for advanced and serious practitioners only. It has a lot of bound postures that help to open the hips for padmasana, to open the front and back of the body for back bends and splits, and to strengthen the abdomen and upper body in preparation for the handstand.
