YogaSlackers Atlanta GA Workshop Dec 14-16, 2012

Friday, December 7th, 2012

Yoga Slackers Slackline yoga (or slackasana) has been described as “distilling the art of yogic concentration.”  To balance on a 1? piece 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 achievable by almost anyone with a little bit of perseverance and patience.  The practice has many layers, simultaneously developing focus, dynamic balance, power, breath, core integration, flexibility, and confidence.  Utilizing standing postures, sitting postures, arm balances, kneeling postures, inversions and unique vinyasa, a skilled slackline yogi is able to create a flowing yoga practice without ever falling from the line.

Please be familiar with: walking, kneeling, sitting, basic arm balances and surf stance on the slackline OR Basic “L” basing or flying.
