Slackline Yoga Clinic in Rockville this Wednesday! slackline.jpg

Slackline Yoga (or slackasana) has been described as “distilling the art of yogic concentration.” To balance on a 1″ peice of webbing lightly tensioned between two trees is not easy, and doing yoga poses onit is even more challenging. Yet despite the seemingly impossible nature of the act, it is achievable by almost anyone with a little bit of perserverance and patience. The practice has many layers, simultaneously developing focus, dynamic balance, power, breath, core integration, flexibility, and confidence.

Join Adi Carter of YogaSlackers for a unique slackline yoga clinic at ET Rockville on Wednesday, October 13th from 6-8pm.  Cost: $20 for members and $25 for non-members. Please arrive 10-15 minutes early for registration. The members of team YogaSlackers have collectively taught over 5,000 people (from 2 to 82 yrs old) to successfully embrace this form of amazing asana.  For more info on YogaSlackers, visit their website here or to get a better idea of what they do, check out this great video!
