I am so excited for this book. Christa has combined the wisdom of yoga's traditions and practices with practical tips from her professional expertise and personal experience, plus a little sprinkle of her own magical whimsy. The book is fun, accessible, useful, and meaningful. As Christa knows first-hand, many people with arthritis and chronic pain struggle with land-based activities and find relief in the buoyancy of the water. Water Yoga has lots of teaching tips, but is also great for people who want to practice on their own.

According to legend, yoga began under water. The story goes that Matsyendra, the first yogi, overheard Shiva sharing the secrets of yoga with Parvati at the bottom of the ocean. Christa Fairbrother continues this ancient, mystical tradition in Water Yoga, where she translates the fullness of the eight limbs of yoga into a fluid and flexible practice for all of us.
