Slackline for everybody

Learn how to walk on a slackline with Alexander Baker. Slackline is an amazing way to find balance in both body and mind. For many it’s a way to let go of worries and tension in their bodies, as you will only be able to focus on one thing: not losing balance. Alexander became hooked on slacklining while climbing mountains and has since then taught people between the ages 4 to 70, and everyone who has tried has thought it was much easier than they expected.
