Redefining Balance: Slackline Series
The Redefining Balance: Slackline Series, as taught by Jeremy of the YogaSlackers, is a basic introduction to finding balance on the slackline through the practice of developing core strength, focus and stability. The course is limited to a small number of students as to develop these skills with traditional Yoga, partner work and conditioning aimed at learning to kneel, sit, stand and practice arm balances on the line. More advanced students comfortable with walking across the line the line will be given challenging variations to help work on transitions, turns and slackline Yoga poses (Slackasana).

Acrobatic Yoga combines elements of Yoga, Acrobatics, slacklining, and Thai Massage. Practice usually includes a base and a flyer, for beginners or those working on more advanced inversions or group pyramids, a spotter for added safety. Acrobatic Yoga can help take your climbing to the next level by building trust, developing balance, incorporating awareness of your body's center of gravity, increasing flexibility, and building your endurance... Plus it's fun! We will work on positions using two to five people, and can easily find you a partner if you come solo.
Vinyasa Yoga: Vinyasa classes use the flowing vinyasa movement of ashtanga yoga, but uses variety of postures (instead of a set series of postures like Ashtanga yoga) to cultivate balance, flexibility, strength and endurance. This fun, engaging class set to upbeat music teaches the fundamentals of Vinyasa Yoga including sun salutations, standing poses, balancing postures, seated and reclining poses, backbends, core isolation and strengthening. Special emphasis is placed on moving into and out of postures safely, correct alignment, using the breath, and learning to quiet the chatter of the mind to find peace and inner stillness.
Yin Yoga: focus on the skeletal system and soft tissue of the body. Whereas other yoga styles are heat inducing and focus on the strength and flexilibity of muscles, yin yoga aims to stretch soft tissue, compress bone and activate the meridian system hidden within our connective tissue. The majority of yin positions are sitting or reclining, but there are some active 'yang' style poses in the yin tradition. Yin poses are held from 3-5 minutes as connective tissue is not as easily manipulated as muscle. Yin Yoga rehabilitates and strengthens connective joint tissue. This style of yoga is especially important for people who push their bodies with things like cycling, running, tennis, power yoga, climbing and other sports. It is a quiet practice that requires surrender.
Yoga Sculpt is a total body workout. This class is set to energizing music and designed to tone and sculpt every major muscle group. It boosts your metabolism while improving strength and flexibility. Free weights are used, creating resistance and intensifying each pose. Plyometrics and core strengthening are also incorporated to build functional muscle.
We do yoga because it’s good. :)
Originally from the Sierra Nevada Foothills, my life has revolved around playing many sports and exploring the mountains. Several years ago I started incorporating yoga for the stretching, balance and peace of mind. Now I enjoy turning it into a full body work out with YogaSculpt in which we add weights, cardio and plyometrics to the mix. It's a good butt kicker. I also cater to peoples injuries so they can get back to sports pain free and strong. Colorado (especially City Rock) is a great play ground. Enjoy it to the fullest!
Jody discovered her love for yoga in 2006 and received her 200 hour certification in 2007 from Lahiri School of Yoga. She appreciates the balance of awareness, flexibility, and strength it brings to her mind and body, as well as every aspect of her life. Jody offers a slower flow of Hatha Yoga focusing on building mental and physical strength with an overall balanced practice, in a friendly, noncompetitive atmosphere. When joining one of her classes you will be greeted with a smile and most likely a little cheesy humor at some point. Jody understands that every person begins yoga for their own reason but the way that it transforms our lives, bodies, and minds is amazingly similar.
As a Colorado native I first discovered Yoga in 1994. In the years that followed, I have enhanced my practice and realized a deeper sense of strength, body awareness and spirituality. I received my 200hr Yoga certification at Pranava RYS in 2011, and it was one of the best experiences of my life. I have a deep respect for the tradition and a strong passion for the practice. I myself tolerate back issues and moderate pain. Practicing Yoga has helped me mentally and physically so that I am able to live a more productive, youthful life. I am blessed to have the opportunity to share the wonderful benefits of Yoga with others. I am dedicated to the Yoga practice as I continue my own growth and understanding.
Holly began her yoga journey with Bikram yoga nine years ago. With a background in elite athletics and personal training she soon found herself only going to the gym once a month. "Yoga will give your body everything it needs. The hardest part is finding the patience to let it happen." As Holly’s practice grew she felt the profound change it made within her and how she approached her daily life. "It has completely changed every aspect of my life, completely." Holly has taught yoga at CorePower and other studios and has also taught climbing and yoga to children. She strives to ensure that everyone feels at home in her class.
Frances grew up in California and has been in the Springs for about 3 years and absolutely loves it! Frances says that “Yoga has been a part of my life for years and I love being able to share it with others. Climbing and yoga go hand in hand for me because they both get me to a place of ‘flow’ - where I can let go of all my thoughts and worries.”
Having thrived during the first ever YogaSlackers Teacher Training, Jeremy brings the dynamic practices of Traditional Yoga, Yoga on the Slackline, Acrobatic Yoga, and Vertical Yoga (a.k.a. climbing) to his home town Colorado Springs and his "home away from home" CityRock.
