We have found the evolution of health + wellness through the act of connecting to the self through movement while simultaneously connecting with the water, planet, and each other.
Aqua Vida is a movement.
It is a movement dedicated to creating a healthier environment from within that extends to the world around us.
It started as a SUP yoga company based out of Philadelphia and Farrington Lake in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Combining two favorite past times, yoga and surfing, an all-levels welcome class was created where participants can connect to themselves, each other, and the environment around them. The floating fitness classes have evolved to include sculpt classes, flow classes, HIIT classes and more.
Aqua Vida IS responsible products.
There was constantly a need for products that paticipants could use while taking SUP classes so we decided to design a line of apparel suitable for SUP yoga. The more research that was done into the textile and apparel industry, the more apparent it became that this industry was not aligned to Aqua Vida’s environmental initiatives. From production to distribution and everything in between, Aqua Vida seeks to change the way the textile and apparel industries manufacture and create clothing. They use biodegradable fabric produced in factories with strict environmental practices, eliminated unnecessary plastic packaging, use only 100% recycled and recyclable packaging, and advocate for all companies to be held to a higher standard. Aqua Vida’s Trade Up program encourages clients to send in their old yoga leggings to be turned into their signature Aqua Vida x Lava Rubber Mat.
Aqua Vida is Environmental Warriors.
Our connection to the water drives us to protect it.
Aqua Vida began its environmental initiatives by hosting SEVA nights where clients are invited to take a Floating Fitness class followed by cleanups of the waterways they have just enjoyed. They have taken these clean ups internationally to places like Dominican Republic and Costa Rica. Through these cleanups Aqua Vida has removed nearly 4,000 lbs of trash from local waterways. They are involved in lobbying and rallying in support of environmental legislation and work closely with non-profits dedicated to protecting our waterways and oceans. Everything this company does revolves around protecting and promoting the future health of our water.
