Why Participate IN this event?

We’ve shaped our training to be more than just focusing on one skill, like you might find in other retreats dedicated solely to yoga, acro, handstands, slacklining, or conditioning. We noticed that sticking to one skill can be tough on the body, making it prone to injuries, and tough on the mind, especially if progress stalls. Our events mix it up, bringing different skills together in a way that each one supports and enhances the others. This creates a program that’s bigger and more beneficial than just the sum of its parts.

Whether you’re deep into handstands and looking to ease the strain on your wrists, or an acroyogi aiming for more stability without always needing a partner, our approach offers something unique. And for those either new to slacklining or already walking the line like a pro, we invite you to explore how these disciplines can complement your practice, enriching both solo and partner work.

Join us for a retreat that’s not only about learning new skills but also embarking on a journey of self-discovery and pushing your boundaries. It’s a chance to explore and enhance your capabilities in a balanced, integrated way.

Goals of the Training

  • Progressive Learning

    Throughout our week together, we will embark on a dynamic progression of skill development. Our approach begins with establishing rock-solid foundations, and as your expertise deepens, we will artfully integrate further intricacies and techniques.

  • Practice

    The program allocates ample time for practice and repetition over multiple days. This structured maximizes the likelihood of retaining and mastering the techniques when you continue your practice at home.

  • Supportive Environment

    Immerse yourself in an atmosphere of unwavering support, fostering growth, exploration, and camaraderie.
