; YogaSlackers - Extreme Living, With Awareness

Train With Us!

Want to become a slacker?

The YogaSlackers teaching method is characterized by:

  • Safe and Thoughtful Progressions
  • Strong Focus on Fundamentals
  • Clear and Concise Instructions
  • Success by Practice and Repetition

It’s our hope that yogaslackers.com can be a place for you to find inspiration and connect with inspiring people.

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.”

Retreats

Retreats are an opportunity to spend time with like-minded people, in inspiring places, exploring the edges of your perceived limitations. What sets our retreats apart from others is the amount of free time you will get. If you’re feeling more chill, or you want to go explore on your own, even miss a whole day, no one is going to yell at you. Conversely, if you’re ready to ‘get some,’ a YogaSlackers retreat guarantees you will retire to your room, tired, after a day full of adventure and play. We promise you will not feel too new or experienced to truly enjoy it!

YogaSlackers retreats are typically one week.

 

Goals:

  • Polish your acrobatic and slackline skills

  • Find the importance of stillness in movement, softness found in strength, and learn the art of silent communication

  • Review the basics of slackline yoga and acro yoga, then progress through the week adding more challenges individually suited to you.

  • Have fun!

Why join our teacher training...

  • Looking to teach slacklining?

  • Want to find your authentic slacker teaching voice?

  • Desire to feel more at ease while teaching?

  • Want to learn how to set up your own workshops and build a community?

If you answered YES to any of these questions YogaSlackers Teacher Training is for you. Spend 9 days furthering your teaching and practice in the realms of yoga asana, acroyoga, and slacklining. Learn to become a remarkable instructor with deeper understanding in transmitting these modalities. This training focuses on learning how to teach slacklining. While we will also be working on slackline and acroyoga skill development, most of the time you will be learning the YogaSlackers' pedagogy.

We will intentionally push you outside of your comfort zone with the aim of allowing you to discover a bit more of the untapped potential that we all possess. As a certified YogaSlackers teacher, you'll begin sharing the work of balance (and adding to it) through workshops, classes, events, performances, tours and intensives – all backed by the YogaSlackers name and growing support.

  • Learn how to create several styles of workshops

  • Practice teaching to your peers and teachers

  • Learn how to teach with various time, location, levels, and weather constraints

  • Learn the ins and outs of setting up your own workshops and marketing your skills

  • Find your authentic slacker voice and feel more at ease while teaching
