The YogaSlackers teaching method is characterized by:
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!
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.

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.
