"COOPER" has been on a personal healing journey, for the last 30 years and still continues on this path, with the philosophy of ~ Balance in Motion ~
Cooper has travelled the world learning a diverse range of skills, from many different cultures, tribal elders & teachers in different modalities. Body Balance training is created from a desire to maintain, internal balance & awareness of Body, Mind & Spirit.
His approach to teaching on the slackline is joyful, fun and patient. He provides encouragement along with constructive feedback, which helps participants to experience the maximum benefits. This enables participants to find balance 'on the line' & furthermore, balance in their everyday lives.
Since 2014 Cooper has been sharing the gifts of slacklining in SE Qld. He has hosted and shared his talents at many learn to slackline events including music festivals, corporate staff training events, skate park events, schools, yoga studios, gyms and charity events.

Corporate / Team building Workshop - EVOHE
"As the team leader of a progressive company I am always looking for meaningful activities that are both fun and productive. Our Bodybalance Slackline session with Cooper was all this and more.The team absolutely loved it!
I watched the team have fun, focus and set goals. They encouraged each other when the going got tough and celebrated each step of success along the slackline.
I noticed how the team energy from the session produced a unity that carried on in to the daily activities of the business.
I appreciated the method and delivery of the session by Cooper. He was professional and clear with instructions and I felt confident with his management of safety.
Cooper was also very compassionate and considerate of each persons physical/mental/emotional capacity on the day and I know that each team member walked away with their own personal gem from the experience.
I look forward to including Slacklining as a regular team building experience

Cooper is extreamely professional and loves what he does. Slacklining with Cooper is always a positive and super fun experience and the benefits gained will enhance and deepen, any aspiring yogi's practice.
"If you've been curious about Slacklining and your on the Gold Coast, I thoroughly recommend trying out Bodybalance Slackline. Cooper was awesome with the kids and a fabulous teacher.
It was a super fun challenge and I guarantee there's so much more to learn about yourself in this experience, than just physical balance."

Personal Message from the Instructor:
"Slacklining is the best metaphor for life, I have found so far "
"I like to be conscious and aware in my life, of my surroundings and my attention to detail, so I use the best quality, accredited equipment set up with the current guidelines, combined with proper spill & spotting training techniques.
I have a genuine regard for peoples health / well being & always with consideration of the planet. I like to be pro-active & ensure the safest possible training environment for all people, wanting to learn Slacklining. I encourage any beginner wishing to learn, to get the proper training with an Accredited Slackline (Australia) Teacher.
I provide a caring & nurturing environment for people of all ages. Using a positive, enthusiastic approach to teaching, with an emphasis on patience, encouragement & positive, constructive feedback, I help people to find balance on the line & furthermore, balance in everyday life.
It’s important to find joy, fun & happiness in life, which is something I love to bring into my classes. "When you enjoy what you’re doing, then you can only succeed"
