Stoked to try the slackline? Start with these three core-building balance moves from The YogaSlackers to cultivate slackline-steady strength. Plus, get on the line with the YogaSlackers at YJ LIVE! San Diego, June 24-27.
Step onto a slackline for the first time and you will instantaneously understand why the sport has earned a reputation for being a killer core workout. You’ll need every stabilizing muscle you’ve got to balance on the wobbly 2-inch ribbon. With no choice but to amplify your core movements as you constantly shift to maintain center, you'll activate your entire core.
“In a short amount of time, practicing the art of slacklining will enhance your ability to make quick and accurate adjustments stemming from your core,” explains Yoga Journal Live! presenter, Sam Salwei of the YogaSlackers. “And working on your core before stepping on a slackline will activate your core-stabilizer muscles faster.”
