Raquel Hernández-Cruz
    Bio

    Raquel’s adventures began many years ago. During her first year in college she started practicing pranic healing meditations. Pain in her neck, back, and shoulders sent her to her first yoga class. Later on, she utilized a combination of asana and meditation to stay focused, healthy, and active while working on her masters degree in marine biology. Only three short days after defending her thesis she boarded a plane to India where she received her first of many yoga certifications. But her intention wasn't to become a teacher, her intention was to dive into the yoga practice….. even more. 

    Never knowing how to keep a good thing only for herself, Raquel soon started offering yoga classes while consecutively working on a PhD degree in chemical oceanography.  She began to notice the impact that just one hour of class twice a week had on her students: physically, mentally, emotionally. That's when Raquel decided that she would benefit the world more by being a full time yoga teacher than a marine biologist! (Yay, for us!) She has since quit her studies, her research, and her job and decided to travel the world meeting amazing humans and teaching the art of balancing.

    As Raquel has continued to travel and avidly pursue her passions, she's completed even more training and certifications, including several pranic healing certifications, Akhanda yoga 500 hrs teacher training, Ashtanga yoga teacher training, Reiki master, yoga for children, and prenatal yoga. She became a doula (because why not?!), an AcroYoga teacher and completed slackline yoga training with YogaSlackers. 

    These days, you can find Raquel (somewhere in the world) balancing the 'real work tasks' of managing YogaSlackers, playing, and sharing her passions with others by leading workshops, retreats, festival classes, and teacher trainings. Her classes are highly influenced by her travels, and her honest desire to connect with people through compassionate communication. She still employs her scientific background to solve complex problems, making no hurdle too large for her to cross. Raquel will patiently and enthusiastically guide you to the edge of your perceived limits… and beyond! She can't help but create an encouraging environment where learning and growing result through playful discovery. So what are you waiting for?! Let's play!

    What do we do when we are not slacking, acroyoging, handstanding or climbing mountains? We play games!

    Here is a growing list of our favorite games.

    We’ve tested all these games on and off the road with adults and children. While traveling to distant places, with multi language players and lately during six months of social distancing and counting.

    After living in the Peace Love Car for over 5 years, Sam and Raquel decided to invest in a new and bigger vehicle. To some, what they decided to purchase is none of that. Here is the story of how they purchase a 1988 Mitsubishi Delica and their first road trip.

    If you are dealing with longer pieces of webbing, butterfly coils are a great option.

    Did you know that there is not a true antonym for the English noun nomad? We learned this the hard way earlier this year, when we were unexpectedly required to “stay put” and stop living nomadically during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Every time I exchanged an ‘I have to’ for an ‘I get to’ in normal everyday life, I was allowing myself to express gratitude and appreciation towards the things that I have.

    Daisy chaining your line will help keep the webbing free of tangles, compact and easy to transport. This is our favorite way to store a slackline: a quadruple daisy chain.
