Slackers

Colorado Slackasana Art Print

Beautiful night to catch the sunset with a view like this while slacklining in the park.  Here I am looking at the sky and notice this could be a great sunset.  Only having limited time, went to my closest favorite spot, and here they were… slackers… made my night, how cool is that!  My new friend Jonah Jenson  a Polarity and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist from Boulder and his friend Matthew from North Carolina, slacklining in  the park.  Hope you like!

Colorado Slacklining Art Print

Slacklining is a practice in balance that typically uses nylon or polyester webbing tensioned between two anchor points. Many people suggest slacklining is distinct from tightrope walking in that the line is not held rigidly taut (although it is still under some tension); it is instead dynamic, stretching and bouncing like a long and narrow trampoline. The line’s tension can be adjusted to suit the user and different types of webbing can be used to achieve a variety of feats. The line itself is usually flat, due to the nature of webbing, thus keeping one’s footing from rolling as would be the case with an ordinary rope. The dynamic nature of the line allows for tricks and stunts. Slacklining has quickly become popular due to its simplicity and versatility and its ability to be practiced in a variety of environments. Those who participate in slacklining are often called “slackers”

Slackline Yoga – Another form of slacklining is Slackline Yoga, also referred to as YogaSlacking or Slackasana. Slackline Yoga takes traditional yoga poses and moves them to the slackline. It has been described as “distilling the art of yogic concentration.” To balance on a 1″ piece of webbing lightly tensioned between two trees is not easy, and doing yoga poses on it is even more challenging. The practice has many layers, simultaneously developing focus, dynamic balance, power, breath, core integration, flexibility, and confidence. Utilizing standing postures, sitting postures, arm balances, kneeling postures, inversions and unique vinyasa, a skilled slackline yogi is able to create a flowing yoga practice without ever falling from the line.

Slackline Yogis in BW Art Print
In 2005, Sam Salwei and Jason Magness began demonstrating yoga poses on a slackline at the Yoga Journal conference in Estes Park, later forming YogaSlackers. Since then, the members of team YogaSlackers have collectively taught over 5000 people to successfully embrace this form of asana. They have developed a special slackline and simple tensioning system, allowing for practitioners to learn safely and experience the benefit of a wide range of dynamic energies while on the line.Slackline Yoga Art Print

Another group of “slackline yogis” are the Rocky Mountain Slackline Crew out of Fort Collins, CO. The company has been involved with local and state wide yoga studios incorporating slackline into their class curriculum. They have created a series of postures, maneuvers, and breath rhythm to bring the riders a challenging and rewarding experience.

Teepee Sunset Portrait

Teepee Sunset Portrait Art Print

Vertical images of an Indian Teepee high up in the Colorado Rocky Mountains with a colorful sunset in the sky.   This teepee goes up every year and is always a great part of my summer here in Colorado.

Some teepee facts: Teepees or tipi were originally used by American Indians as a portable shelter that could easily be moved if the tribe needed to relocate. They were built from commonly found materials like animal hides and wooden poles. The canvas of the tepee could be personalized by the inhabitant by painting on a tribal pattern or other design.

The first teepees were used by American Indians in the Great Plains. The name is derived from the Lakota tribe’s word “tipi,” which literally translates to “they dwell

Peace, Love and  Tranquility….

“Only the development of compassion and understanding for others can bring us the tranquility and happiness we all seek.”
― Dalai Lama XIV

“We are not going to change the whole world, but we can change ourselves and feel free as birds. We can be serene even in the midst of calamities and, by our serenity, make others more tranquil. Serenity is contagious. If we smile at someone, he or she will smile back. And a smile costs nothing. We should plague everyone with joy. If we are to die in a minute, why not die happily, laughing? (136-137)” ― Swami Satchidananda, The Yoga Sutras
