Adventure is setting out on a journey (mental or physical) where you are not at all sure of the outcome. Oftentimes, the best adventures are the ones that are so “unknown” that we don’t even know how to define the “success” that we are hoping for. Some may even say ‘An adventure is simply a vacation gone wrong.’
If you have been around any YogaSlackers for long enough, you might have experienced one of their adventures. We strive to have adventures on a daily basis. Why? Because we understand that adventure helps shape you as a person. Adventures let you see who you are deep inside, without any filter. Adventures are a way to push the limits of human potential and discover who we really are. Ultimately, a desire for adventure is what every first-time explorer needs to embrace in order to take that first step.
On a historical note, before the YogaSlackers were teaching slackline yoga, founders Sam Salwei and Jason Magness were adventure racing as Team YogaSlackers. Now, the team races with the name Bend Racing. The team is an entity of its own and has become a name that keeps professional adventure racers awake at night.
Some of our most epic adventures
We strive to have so many adventures, that we forget more adventures that most people have in a lifetime.
Road to Wanderlust Tour
After learning that their beloved Peace Love Car had less than a year of life, Sam Salwei and Raquel Hernández-Cruz decided to say their goodbyes with an epic adventure. They gave themselves 8 months to drive to all 49 US continental states (yes, including Alaska!) and 5 Canadian Provinces, teach a class and do an adventure. They succeed at both.

In 2013 six adventurous YogaSlackers traveled from Rajasthan to Cochin in India as part of The Adventurists Rickshaw Run.
Yoga Extreme Sustainability (Y.E.S.) Tour of Colorado
In 2009 the YogaSlackers combined all our passions to facilitate a message of Awareness through Adventure. Directly after our For Inspirational Purposes Only expedition. Team YogaSlackers kicked off their 1008 mile Y.E.S. tour of Colorado during the 2009 Teva Mountain Games on June 4th, and completed the tour 1008 hours (42 Days) later at the Telluride Yoga Festival.
