    Thank you Mary for having the Aqua Yoga course available. I have been teaching Aqua yoga on my own for 2 months in my neighborhood swimming pool. My ladies all have some kind of injury or recovering from knee surgery. I took a lot of the land base yoga moves and made them water based. My ladies have seen such wonderful improvement from my class. Now I feel I can move to another level since I took your course and becoming certified.

    Mary Irby is an exceptionally gifted, knowledgable and devoted teacher and teacher trainer. Her passion, experience and knowledge are evident in her Aqua Yoga Teacher Training Program. Having completed the training, I have been able to teach what I loved doing. The training was invaluable to me as I learned about yoga, aqua fitness, and how to better my teaching skills. The online experience is wonderful, as it is available whenever I need it, in my schedule. Since completing the course and teaching Aqua Yoga, it has been a joy to see participants gain better balance, deeper breath, more flexibility and a lovely sense of calmness that Aqua Yoga can bring. The course is well rounded, well presented and a great value!

    I look forward to sharing what I have learned with my many Arthritis class students. I love how the poses flow and address the need to be warm in the pool. Happy to find this course!

    This is a good starter course for those interested in teaching aqua yoga. The review of yoga history is nice and the explanations of contraindications and precautions are complete. Mary is thorough in her descriptions of the asanas and the misalignments to be aware of. This is a great class for the price. Thanks for your hard work Mary!

    I have been a water aerobics (AEA certified) instructor for many years, and have been interested in adding Aqua Yoga to my repertoire for some time. I am so glad that I found this on-line training program. I am somewhat familiar with land based yoga (starting my RYT-200 hr soon), but was never sure how to adapt land poses to the aquatic environment, and how to put them together into a class format. This training teaches over 50 different aqua yoga poses or movements that can be done in the water. The most valuable part of the training for me was the “Aqua Yoga Class Flows” at the end. They show how you can put all of the individual components together to form a cohesive class. Of course, I know that I can modify and create my own signature flows eventually, but I really appreciated the step by step examples of class flows. After taking this course, I feel so much more confident teaching Aqua Yoga to my population of students. Mary has also been a joy to work with throughout this distance learning course; she was always available by email when needed. Thank you Mary!

      Thanks, Cheryl! I’m so glad you enjoyed the course and have enjoyed having you as a student. I hope to see you in other classes in the coming year, and maybe even an in-person class if your schedule permits! Thanks and Namaste, Mary

    I had a wonderful experience with Mary’s Water Yoga teacher training program. The materials were very clear and comprehensive and extremely applicable to any Water Yoga class. My students are enjoying their classes and the class size is growing each week. I earned my 200-hour land-based Yoga teacher training and am currently in the 500-hour program. Mary’s written Water Yoga teacher materials plus the local training that I received from an experienced White Crow water Yoga teacher provide very valuable information that I apply towards EVERY Yoga class I teach. I highly recommend the White Crow Water Yoga teacher training program.

    A very enjoyable process. I am designing a class for the prestigious Fairmont Hotel and Spa. You can google Claremont Hotel and see where I work. Permission granted for anything you need. Thanks for creating the aqua yoga. Bravo!

    I appreciate you contacting me. I Loved the course and found the training manual clear and concise. I liked how you integrated the yamas and chakras into the class. I also use the yamas when going over cautions for my chair yoga classes. I enjoyed watching the video especially to learn how you applied the teaching tip section of the manual into the class. I learned some new teaching skills. Pool yoga uses a lot of the same poses as chair yoga especially with keeping the head on the same level as the heart. Instead of the pool wall we use the back of the chair as a prop. New to me was the use of noodles. I really like your teaching style.

    I am totally thankful for the Aqua Yoga course. I enjoyed it a lot. I learned more and faster that I thought as it is well planned and its characteristics makes of it an invaluable peace of knowledge.

    I widely recommend this course as is really complete, the material (book and videos) are the right tool to learn and to find the confidence to perform and teach this practice. Thank you.

    I recently completed the distance Aqua Yoga Certification program after enjoying a local aqua yoga class taught by a friend who went through the program. As a newly certified yoga instructor, this fit in perfectly with the population I teach – seniors and beginners.

    At first I worried about getting all I needed from a distance course, but the manual was thorough and comprehensive; adapting traditional yoga poses to water classes and reviewing yogic history, philosophy, and ethics. The sample DVD class puts it all together. I felt I was able to create a high standard class as a result of the video demonstrations and cueing advice. I loved Mary’s positive energy and gentle style, combined with her shared experience and knowledge. As a yoga teacher working with fellow seniors, I found The White Crow Aqua Yoga program both inspiring and insightful.

    Thank you so very much for the feedback. I truly enjoy teaching yoga and can’t wait to do an aqua yoga class. Your feedback is so very helpful. It’s specific and encouraging. I appreciate the information about the neck extension. I’ve never heard that it is more of a neck extension. It really is, isn’t it?! I certainly see that point and will keep it in mind as another wonderful piece of information gained from this class.

    I will continue to keep an eye on your site to see if you’re ever doing something close to me in North Carolina. I would love to be in your presence as you teach this class.

    The aqua yoga course is a fabulous program for home study. Even if you don’t plan on teaching straight aqua yoga, you’ll come away with lots of ideas for creative cool downs for your more traditional aqua class.

    I’m a single mom, I have a lot of challenges in life but because I have children that looks up and depend on me I need to teach them how to be a great warrior in life, by continuing doing good and right thing in life and by embracing education.

    I need a job that I love to do and helps people. I am so blessed to found White Crow Yoga. With their Long Distance Online Course my dream to be a Certified Aqua Yoga Teacher came true. Ms. Mary Irby is a woman with a golden heart and her White Crow Yoga is a miracle! I give 5 stars all in all = )
