Learn how to Slackline with the Chicago Slackliners Association *WestLoop*

WHAT IS IT?

Slacklining is essentially tightrope walking between 2 trees on a flat piece of tubular webbing. You will learn balance, focus and meditation while on the slackline. The line is only a couple feet off the ground so a deathwish is not required. We have all the knowledge and gear to help you take your 1st baby steps on the slackline. Come find your focus and balance at any of our open free meetup slackline sessions. Don't worry about showing up on time, just stop by when you can!

 

HOW DID IT START?

Chicago Slackliners Association or CSA evolved from the roots of yogic philosophy, asana and meditation. Slacklining gives one the chance to understand the principles of karma and reality. The more focused you are, the more your reality comes into balance. The moment you become unfocused is the moment you are thrown off the line.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Each step on the line sharpens & fine tunes the consciousness that's become fragmented by living in this co-created reality. Slacklining gives one the unique opportunity to slightly shift their perceptions to a higher reality of focus and awareness.

​Allowing distractions of the mind to run wild within your consciousness creates a conditioning out of life. Slacklining gives one the chance to wage war with the distractions of the mind. As distractions arise you are off the line. Slacklining gives body consciousness a chance to help with the elimination of mental distractions. As the body conditions itself physically and mentally to stay on the line the mind itself follows.

​WHAT HAPPENS OVER TIME?

As more time is spent on the slackline a synchronicity between body consciousness and consciousness take hold. This leads to the ability to reach very high levels of cognition and focus. Come practice slacklining and watch your super powers grow infinitely. Your muscle memory and strength throughout your whole body will grow immensely due to the nature of what it takes to stay balanced on the slackline.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
