Use and take away specific exercises, progressions and techniques to target alignment, muscular strength, or stability, aerobic endurance and flexibility. Practice and apply movement vocabulary that is specif to effective water exercise. This is a great "crossover" course for land instructors to learn to teach water exercise. Both deep and shallow water techniques will be compared, as well as applications for transferable land skills.

For aquatic exercise instructors, here is a new way to think about core work and how it translates to posture and function.
