They found a nice little spot in the shade and practiced between two trees!

To begin with Olmo had them doing warm ups and gave them some tips on keeping their balance,

Then it was time to walk the line…!

Slacklining! 28th September

Last Thursday we headed to the park to do some slacklining with Olmo!

The temperature was in the 30’s so we found some shade under some trees for our practice!

Olmo started with some warm up exercises and games, which got everyone relaxed and laughing lots!

Everyone then had a few turns walking the line between the two trees, with Olmo giving them tips along the way.

A fun afternoon was had by all!

Slacklining! 25th May

Yesterday Olmo from Slackline Byron Bay Balance Revolution  came in to teach us some slacklining skills!

A lot of the students had gone for a BBQ at the beach, but myself, Raphael, Lisa and Anais all had a turn at perfecting our balance!

Olmo guided us through; helping us focus on our breathing and making sure we were always looking up and ahead!

He talked to us about how learning the skills to balance can also help us in life; by working on breathing techniques to keep calm and control fears, and also making sure we are always looking forward.

Slacklining! 21st March

Today we had Olmo from Slackline Byron Bay Balance Revolution to teach us how to slackline!

There were a few different levels in the group; with it being the first time for some and others having tried it a number of times before!

Everyone had a great time practicing and encouraging each other!

Olmo gave the students tips throughout and everyone had improved by the end of the hour session!

He’ll be here with us again next month for anyone who missed out, and also those of you who’d like to practice some more!

Slacklining!! 17th January

Today we had Olmo from Slackline Byron Bay Balance Revolution return to teach us some slacklining skills!

We done some fun trust exercises with a partner to get us warmed up and working on our balance first, then it was time to walk the line!

The weather was sunny and very hot so we had to find a spot in the shade to practice.

Everyone managed to progress a lot in the hour each group had with Olmo, so there’s no knowing what they’ll be able to do next time they try!

Some of the students who had tried slacklining before were able to try out some new tricks, such as standing on the line from a crouched position; well done those that managed this!

Another fun day at Lexis Byron Bay 🙂

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!

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!
