Yoga Conference


Team YogaSlackers is an eclectic group of yogic adventure athletes founded by Jason Magness and Sam Salwei at the Yoga Journal Estes Park conference eight years ago. Exploring the limits of human potential, the YogaSlackers specialize in gently nudging their students (and themselves) far outside the comfort zone and into the realm of ultimate growth. Through traditional yoga as well as various yoga-based practices such as climbing, slacklining, and acrobatics, the team has become known worldwide for its Redefining Balance retreats. With a roster including Adi Carter, Chelsey Magness, Paige Wyatt, Paul Cassedy, and more, the YogaSlackers have a broad appeal and a lot to share. Learn more at yogaslackers.com.

The "slackline series" is a unique practice that redefines your sense of balance and mental focus. Great for yogis, climbers, and athletes of all forms, the technique teaches complete body awareness. This practice will improve your focus and alignment for yoga and your overall strength and balance. We'll learn the basics of the slackasana series, including standing and walking on the line, kneeling, sitting, arm balancing, and even going upside down.

Mostly practice.

Drawing on the foundations of AcroYoga, traditional acrobatics, and YogaSlacker's own "Slackro," we'll explore by blending some of the fundamental principles of yoga, acrobatics, and dynamic balance together.

Natura WinesIndia is arguably the most vibrant and chaotic country in the world, where the extremes of humanity all mingle and collide in a tumultuous cascade of people, religions, cultures and ideas. Yet somewhere in the middle of it all, the western world searches for stillness and bliss.

Join the YogaSlackers (a bunch of yogic athletes as eclectic as mother India herself) as they embark on a journey to race an "auto rickshaw" smack dab through the middle of it all. Perhaps careening around at 30 mph on a glorified lawnmower isn't the best way to go about finding eternal peace...

Light snacks and wine will be served. Open to all.
