The Aqua Yoga area consists of the following courses – Aqua Yoga for Women’s Health, Aquanatal Yoga and Aqua Yoga Therapy Days.
Birthlight Aqua Yoga for Women’s Heath offers the most comprehensive set of adaptations of classic yoga practices in water. Aqua Yoga makes the yoga benefits of relaxed stretches, strengthening, full breathing and mindfulness accessible to all in water. Certified teachers are equipped to provide this safe, effective and enjoyable form of exercise to pregnant women, seniors, those for whom land yoga is not suitable, those in good health looking to retain this and those wishing to add yoga to their swimming or swimming to their yoga. .
Birthlight’s Perinatal Yoga teacher trainings (also known as Pregnancy Yoga) offer original adaptations of classic yoga practices for women from conception through to the postnatal year. Yoga is deployed holistically to enhance women’s body and mind transformation throughout maternity. We train both yoga teachers and maternity professionals who go on to offer successful regular Pregnancy Yoga classes and workshops in yoga studios, community spaces, hospitals as well as midwives integrating the practices into their care on labour wards, in birth centres, routine appointments and home visits. Nurture, calm strength and balance are our priorities.

Françoise Freedman originally developed Aqua Yoga in her youth as her personal practice, out of her twin passion for yoga and swimming. Aquanatal Yoga has been an integral part of her pioneering adaptations in Yoga for Pregnancy and organically led to the development of Aqua Yoga Therapy by a dedicated Birthlight team since 2010.
For more information about Aqua Yoga read the article “Aqua Yoga” written by Françoise Freedman for “Yoga and Health” magazine.
