AquaYoga is a relaxing and effective form of exercise that supports health and wellbeing.

Exercises and poses are adapted to be achievable in water so there is a combination of benefits that contribute to long term health as well as being an aid to physical therapy for injury and mobility.

Stretching, relaxing and deep breathing are enhanced by the buoyancy and water resistance.

Balance is also more achievable. All the body systems are stimulated with minimal challenge.

These combined aspects make AquaYoga accessible to all irrespective of age, fitness, previous experience or swimming ability.

Benefits to you:

  • increases range of motion
  • improves muscle tone and strength
  • increase in muscle relaxation
  • improves endurance
  • aids in pain relief
  • improves digestion

Swim Test

Only those 8 years and over are allowed in the deep water (2.4m).  For those under 8, space is available in the shallow water (1.2m) and in the PAK'nSAVE Programmes Pool at various times throughout the week.

To ensure everyone who visits Coastlands Aquatic Centre has fun in a safe environment, all children aged 8 to 12 years who wish to swim in the deep water (2.4m) must pass a swim test.

The test will be:

  • jump in
  • tread water for 1 minute
  • swim forward 25 metres without stopping
  • climb out

Treading water means being able to support yourself easily in an upright position in water. Then swim forward confidently, without pushing off the pool floor.
