Q: CAN I DO H2Y0GA IF I DON'T KNOW HOW TO SWIM?
A: YES! The pool is only 4 1/2 feet deep and we use floatation devices--similar to the "swimmies" you used as a kid! I actually have several clients who don't know how to swim and they LOVE H2yOga! If you have a real phobia of the water, try our Prenatal Classes! They're not just for pregnant women. Unlike most of our H2yOga classes, in Prenatal H2yOga, we use a different style of floating, where it's easy to put your feet down and come to standing when you need to. This style is perfect for "nervous floaters," easing stress and boosting confidence throughout our practice. Plus, if you want to learn how to swim, the LKSA offers wonderful swim lessons for both children and for adults!
Q: IS H2Y0GA OKAY TO DO WHEN YOU'RE PREGNANT?
A: Although water exercise is often recommended for pregnant women, most of our H2yOga classes requires a lot of work of your stabilizer muscles and are therefore not appropriate for pregnant women, even if you're in great shape. However, we have GREAT NEWS!! We do offer Pregnancy-Safe Water Yoga Classes! Read more about these exciting classes that are great for mommy and safe for baby! ------------------------->>>>>>
Q: WHICH H2YOGA CLASS SHOULD I TAKE FIRST?
A: Whether you've taken lots of yoga or it's your first time, I always recommend "Flows Afloat" or "Flows Afloat with a Ball!"
as your first class. "Flows Afloat" is the gentlest, and most organic in progression from pose-to-pose of all the classes I teach. It's the perfect place to develp your H2yOga vocabulary. Once you've taken a "Flows Afloat" class, you'll be able to easily transition into one of our faster paced classes. That being said, based on your particular interests and athletic level, you are welcome to take any H2yOga class as your first class, EXCEPT for the "Warrior Core - Tone and Stretch" class. "Warrior Core - Tone and Stretch" is our most advanced H2yOga class. We dive in immediately to an intense series of exercises and there is an entire secondary set of vocabulary in this very fast paced class. For these reasons, in order to be safe, it is inappropriate for a first class. However, "Warrior Core - Tone and Stretch" does make a fun and rewarding second or third class!
Q: CAN I JUST DROP IN FOR A CLASS?
A: Unfortuantely, no. Due to pool size, all H2yOga classes are ALWAYS by appointment only. It's easy to make a reservation!
Just CLICK HERE to use our online scheduler!
Q: DO I NEED TO BE A MEMBER OF THE JCC?
A: Nope! H2yOga classes are open to the public. However, we do offer JCC Members 10% off of our regular prices. Just ask us how to get your discount!
Q: ARE YOUR CLASSES JUST FOR WOMEN?
A: No. H2yOga is for men and women alike. In fact, several of our on-going clients are men. Some come with their partners, wives or girlfriends and some come by themselves.
