Slacklining and having the time of my life at the Steelhead waterfalls! I would say this is one of my favorite moments this summer :) @buddha_pants #SUMMERBUDDHA #slacklife #slackline #slackpixie #slacklining #waterline #waterfall #adventure #yoga #yogaslacker #yogaeverdamnday #splits #smiles #Oregon #smithrock #funtime #fullbodyworkout #core #flexibility #stretching #lovinglife

Why Do Slackline Yoga? For me, the most interesting thing about slackline yoga is having a dynamic relationship to the line. A lot of slackers get stuck walking with their chests perpendicular to the line-the most efficient way to walk. But they don’t know how to maintain balance orienting to the line in any other dimensions. My balance asana practice on a slackline is all about getting confident that I can maintain balance no matter how I end up on the line.
Slackline Yoga is also therapeutic and restorative practice for me. Much like one sees in Iyengar Yoga, I use a loose slackline as a prop to help me stretch and recover from instense slackline sessions.
Practicing slackline yoga also decouples slacklining from any notions of going somewhere. It teaches you that slacking isn’t about the send, it’s just about being on the line, and being playful. To me, that’s the most important thing.
Slackline yoga is also nice to have because it’s a tool to maintain a state of challenge even on an easy line.

Hanging out at smithrock on the 200+ line :) with Jason and Ethan! I didn’t walk the line full but I walked parts of it and it was wonderful!
