Top 5 Yoga Poses for your Spa, Hot Tub and Swim Spa

Yoga is a great way to increase flexibility, mobility and strength. Combining yoga and your spa, hot tub or swim spa is an excellent way to exercise. Please remember to warm up your muscles before exercising. A great warm up is flutter kicks, running on the spot, and light stretching.

Here are 5 Yoga Poses you can try:

1. The Wave Pose

  • Stand in the middle of your spa, hot tub, or swim spa with your feet shoulder-width apart
  • Reach your right arm into the air, and slightly stretch it over your head as you extend your hip in the opposite direction.
