; 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.”


Intensives with The YogaSlackers focus on building specific skills sets in one of the five principles of yoga, slacklining, acroyoga, conditioning, or adventure. If you are interested in learning the latest trick, this is not for you (we recommend Acrogasm, a trick specific slackline workshop, or small group instruction or private, one-on-one lesson with any of our amazing teachers).

If you want to spend a weekend geeking out on proper alignment, drilling fundamentals, and building skills based on strong progressions, this is most definitely for you. Intensives are great for realizing the most improvement with least amount of effort. We are “slackers” after all! We don’t want to work *too* hard and we are always looking for the easiest way to do something!


  • Practice fundamentals
  • Skill development
  • Focus on progressions and repetition


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.


  • 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!

THE Training

Spend seven days, progressing to the next level with Sam Salwei and Raquel Hernández. These experienced teachers will offer intelligent sequencing and refinement of form to build to higher, and higher skills. This is the event to come to level up! We have no interest in showing the 'latest trick'. Our passion is building strong fundamentals, intelligent progressions and creating practice protocols to help you discover the latest tricks on your own. This intensive includes a full slackline program, conditioning, handstand training, and progressive intermediate and advanced level acrobatics. Your days will be filled with training, training, and more training! The only 'retreaty' part of this event is that you should expect to 'retreat' to your room very tired at the end of the day.


  • Polish your acrobatic skills such as pops, whips, icarian, hand to hand and monolimbs
  • Improve the facets of slackasana including Slackline Fundamentals, Slackline Yoga: Static Poses and Transition,s and Slackline for Conditioning
  • Learn how to develop the refined balance and control of slacklining with emphasis on the skills that challenge you the most
  • Build endurance
  • Gain an increase in physical skills through regimented training

YogaSlackers 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 understanding 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.


  • Become a proud member of the YogaSlackers family
  • Learn the best ways we’ve discovered to teach the seemingly difficult practice of slackline yoga, acroyoga and slackro

  • 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

Pre-Requisites: We expect you to be able to do 100% of these. But, there are some exceptions, like doing a one armed handstand on the line. If you can do that, we will teach you the rest!
