Project Description

Sam Salwei, a modern day Nomad, traveling coast to coast living a lifestyle that is uniquely his own. Initially driven by his passion for Eco-Adventure, life on the road began in 2004, quickly leading into a diverse career encompassing adventure-racing, rock climbing and slacklining. In 2005 Sam co-created the company “Yoga Slackers”, specializing in combining Yoga poses on a Slackline as well as integrating other body awareness practices such as partner acrobatics. Despite the misleading nature of the name, the “slackers” are quite accomplished athletes gaining the support of over 20 different sponsors, who share in the desire to promote ecologically sustainable living.

Raquel Hernandez-Cruz

Marine Biologist, Scientific Diver, Yoga Teacher (500 hrs), Reiki Master, Pranic Healer, Yoga Slacker, AcroYogi, Adventurer, Triathlete, Traveler, Ironwoman and more…Raquel can be described by many labels; however, if you were to ask her which one describes her best she would simply say ‘all and none’.

After finishing her Masters Degree, she traveled to India to get her first certification in Yoga. Two years later, she decided to drop her PhD studies to pursue several yoga certifications, to dedicate all her efforts to the practice and to other adventures that made her heart smile. Raquel’s former life as a scientist keeps her mind busy while her athletic nature keeps her body active. Her passion is finding new challenges that need to be solved and explained with simplicity.
