Slackline yoga (or slackasana) has been described as "distilling the art of yogic concentration." To balance on a 1" peice of webbing lightly tensioned between two trees is not easy, and doing yoga poses on it is even more challenging. Yet despite the seemingly impossible nature of the act, it is acheivable by almost anyone with a little bit of perserverance and patience. The practice has many layers, simultaneously developing focus, dynamic balance, power, breath, core integration, flexibility, and confidence.
The members of team YogaSlackers have collectively taught over 5000 people (from 2 to 82 yrs old) to successfully embrace this form of amazing asana. They have developed a special line and simple tensioning system, allowing for practitioners to learn safely and experience the benefit of a wide range of dynamic energies while on the line. They have also created a comprehensive DVD teaching slackline yoga to those unable to attend a workshop.
