Slacklining! December 9

Byron Bay has been hit with storm after incredible storm this week and today has turned out to be a bit rainy and overcast as a result.

The weather did not deter the students from slacklining though!

They were as keen as ever to get on the line and learn or keep practicing their balance.

Everyone did really well and the students who have been attending the slackline activity each month are improving each time!

A big thank you to Olmo from Slackline Byron Bay Balance Revolution for coming by to teach us the skills of slacklining!

Slacklining! November 18

Today we had Olmo from @slacklinebyronbaybalancerevolution come by to teach us how to slackline!

This activity requires patience, relaxation and awareness of breath and body to master.

Some of the students had a bit of experience slacklining at previous Lexis sessions and others were total beginners. All of them had a lot of fun learning and practicing the skills that enabled them to find their balance on the slackline!

You can find Olmo at the Circus Arts Park&Fly down at Denning Park (opposite Main Beach) over the Summer months. 🙂

Learn to Slackline! September 23

Today we had Olmo from Slackline Byron Bay Balance Revolution came by to teach our students how to slackline!

Before getting onto the slackline, we warmed up the muscles we were about to use by doing some stretching and did some balance exercises to focus and calm our minds.

Then it was time to try to slackline! Olmo had a helping hand nearby and gave lots of great advice to help each student find their balance and walk along the slackline.

Everyone had fun trying to balance along the line and are looking forward to improving more at the next slacklining session!

Learn to Slackline! July 22

It’s another beautiful day in Byron Bay! This afternoon we enjoyed the warm sunshine while learning how to slackline with Olmo from Balance Revolution.

First we started with a few warm up stretches and exercises to teach us the importance of breathing, focus and a clear mind in slacklining.

Then we were straight up onto the slackline – with the help of Olmo at our side, of course!

After a couple of tries on the slackline, everyone agreed that though it was a challenging activity, it was a lot of fun and worth practicing to improve at it!

If you want to try it out your self, or continue practicing what you learnt today, you can find Olmo and his slacklines between Main and Clarkes beaches tomorrow!

Stay tuned next month for another visit from Olmo at the school too!
