Personal Message from the Instructor:
Completing a Bachelor of Science - Podiatry (3 years), and then doing a Bachelor of Science - Physiotherapy (4 years) there is always an urge to learn and do more. Creating a skills set that can help rehabilitate people from different injury backgrounds with a range of complexities. Slacklining is a great tool for developing a new skill while activating different neural pathways and facilitating good posture, balance and achieving good quadricep activation. Slacklining is a way to work on breathing and clearing your mind to concentrate on the task and being. This can be so difficult for people with severe injuries that are struggling to have have insights into the future that this season of struggle will pass and a new season is just around the corner. I enjoy using slacklining to create community and to encourage people of all ages to take the step, they are never too young or too old.
