YogaSlackers – Where Yoga Meets Slackline
799 SW Columbia St
Bend, OR 97702
YogaSlackers is an eclectic group united by five principles: Yoga, Slacklining, AcroYoga, Adventure and Conditioning.
Local Bendite Jason Magness and Sam Salwei co-founded the group in 2005 based on the activities that define their lifestyle. The stories behind the formation of our practice, family, and the business of YogaSlackers are humorous and full of serendipity. It seems that we were often just in the right place at the right time.
With a roster including 138 teachers throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada and France, YogaSlackers all over the world have a broad appeal and a lot to share. Over the years we have taught slacklining to over 30,000 people and at over 40 festivals worldwide. Our unique practice has been featured in Yoga Journal, Climbing Magazine and the Wall Street Journal – to name a few.
Jason Magness is an internationally renowned yogi-adventurer who has practiced various forms of yoga for more than 15 years. He has been featured by Yoga Journal, ESPN, MS-NBC, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Wend Magazine, Rock and Ice, Outside Magazine, and many others. He is thrilled to know so many inspiring slackers from around the world.
Lucky enough to have studied with yogic masters from around the world (including Sri K Pattabhi Jois, BNS Iyengar, BKS Iyengar, Lisa Schremp, and many other) he also considers the ocean and mountains among his most esteemed teachers.
Under Sam’s careful guidance, The YogaSlackers has since grown to over 100 highly talented and passionate athletes and teachers. This highly motivated group of individuals are redefining what it means to be a “slacker” as they live, travel, and teach all over the world, with the support of over 20 different sponsors.
