2018 AcroVenture Camp

With The YogaSlackers, Yoga Nature, and the Movement Wizard


Purchase Tickets Online (Click Here)

The YogaSlackers, Yoga Nature, and the Movement Wizard come together yet again for another special weekend of study, play, and celebration. We'll be under the sun all weekend long with Acro, Slacklining, Yoga, SUP and more on a tucked away lake infused with the magic of serenity.  In the last years we’ve been blessed with rich conversation, fire shows and bonfire songs akin to a summer camp, beyond the limited scope of a class-based festival.  This small and intimate gathering inspires the blossoming of friendships in this community oriented event.  


Workshops will be offered at a variety of skill levels, so that beginners and seasoned practitioners can all walk away happy. 24/7 Access to an indoor pool and hot tub, semi-private instruction, catered meals and so much more will make this a special camp not to be missed!  There will only by 40 tickets available, so act fast to secure your spot.


All Levels Are Welcome.   

All different skill levels are welcome in this event. We promise you will not feel too new or too experienced to truly enjoy it! This weekend will start with a review of the fundamentals, followed by group classes in Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced levels.

ABOUT THE TEACHING TEAM

YogaSlackers Sam Salwei and Raquel Hernández are lovers of movement. Limitations are a foreign concept to this teaching duo, as they spend their time traveling the world and fulfilling their dreams of being true modern-day nomads. Whether it’s driving coast-to-coast, or hopping on an airplane to travel overseas, the motivation is usually the same: bringing their passion for teaching to students all over the world.

What they lack in square footage for living space, they make up for with the wealth of expertise and knowledge they bring with them. Sam Salwei co-founded the YogaSlackers in 2005, and his passion for Slacklining has only grown since then. He typically can be found aweing crowds with his spectacles at every opportunity. Raquel perfectly complements Sam with her extensive training in Yoga, AcroYoga, Slacklining, and Healing Arts.


What makes this couple truly exceptional is their joint ability to spark in their students the same passion that they share for movement. Together, they create a playful, supportive, disciplined, and energetic environment in which learning comes naturally, and show their students that there is no limit to what they can achieve with a positive attitude and dedication. In fact, after taking enough of Sam and Raquel’s classes, “I can’t” may become as foreign of a concept to you as it is for the YogaSlackers!



Connor Otto, the Movement Wizard, is an eclectic movement artist with a passion for exploring human potential through practices of the body, mind and spirit. He draws upon his 8 years of teaching experience to help students break beyond barriers and ignite a spark of joyful play, cultivating a deeper passion for life. Collecting enough certifications to wallpaper a room, he has trained in AcroYoga, Massage Therapy, the GYROTONIC system and much more. With a background in contact improv, meditation, sacred sexuality, shamanism, and as a traveling performance artist, Connor brings a focus on fluidity, flow and connection. He teaches classes, workshops and private sessions in person, across the world and on-line, offering movement training as well as life, relationship, and sacred sexuality coaching. Connor supports students to build trust in themselves and others in order to live in a state of authentic expression. Together, we can spread love and kindness to co-create a better world.
