You’ve seen them around town – those balance-conquering hipsters who traipse across narrow strips of fabric strung between two trees.

At the Austin Slackline Festival on Saturday, March 26, you can learn how they do it. Along the way, you’ll improve your mental focus and reduce anxiety, says festival director Mateo Daniel.

The event will feature live music, games and workshops to teach you slacklining, yoga and acroyoga, plus other games designed to help you hone your sense of balance.

The event, hosted by The YogaSlackers, will take place at 944 Springdale Road, across the street from the Austin Bouldering Project. All skill levels are welcome; no experience required. Admission is free.
