AQUA VIDA IS A WAY OF LIFE.

Every living thing needs water. Its multi-faceted, ever-shifting life reveals a story that will connect you, via one strange molecule, to everyone and everything else and the rest of the universe. It has been said that perhaps this strange substance has created us in order to appreciate itself.    - The Beauty of Water, British Science Association

And water is the driving force behind all that we do and all that we are.

We have found the evolution of yoga + fitness through the act of connecting to the Self through movement while simultaneously connecting with the water, planet, and each other.

And we are a community with a mission – to create a healthier home for a healthier you, both within and without.

Join us as we explore adventure, by pushing our boundaries and challenging ourselves to develop our sense of empowerment, because when you feel strong, you are strong.

As we explore social, mental, and physical practices to strengthen the mind, body and soul, because when we feel happy, we are happy.

As we explore ways to adopt healthier habits for a healther lifestyle because when we feel good, we do good.

And as we come together to join the fight to heal our planet. Our local cleanup efforts are just the beginning. Our focus on environmental health and conservation has taught us to extend the same appreciation, compassion, kindness, and acceptance to the rest of our planet and ourselves.

In our own growth and expansion, in taking care of ourselves and being authentically “who we are”, we contribute to the growth and expansion of all others. For the first time, we’ve come to realize that focusing on our own health and happiness can be the path to spreading love and light to every living thing we come into contact with.

This endless effect of shiny, happy people and a shiny, happy planet is our destination.

Live in the sunshine, Swim the sea, Drink the wild air.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

No Water, No Life. No Blue, No Green.

Sometimes in the waves of change, we will find our true direction.
