What are the best aqua exercises to do in the water for knee strength?
Movati Nepean, Ottawa is looking for an Aquafit instructor Mondays and Fridays 9:30-11:30 am. Contact: Kathryn Featherstone [email protected] if you are interested.
Aqua Kick Box/ HIIT workshop in Simcoe with Dylan was awesome! We were able to split up into two groups which allowed us to be in the water and fully experience it and out of water to take notes - great way to get the most out of a workshop!! Loved it!
Any workshop is always made better when all the instructors are together and can share what is working in their classes; of course that generally happens in the change room while we are all half naked?!?!? What about a share-shop workshop??? If CALA can arrange time and place then invite instructors in the area to each share 20-30 minutes of what they do in their classes? Aqua fit instructors are a small community and don't have a lot of opportunity to share with anyone outside of our own pools. I'll pony up first - give me a time and place and I will give you 30 minutes of deep water workouts! We all have great stuff going on in our pools - we don't need to re-invent the wheel - we need to share what we got rolling!!!!
When and where is this years annual conference pls? :)
