Try Something New: The Art of Highlining
Are you a person willing to try something new every day? Well, here’s something for you. A thrilling sport of highlining, which is not easy but it is definitely fascinating.
Highlining evolved from slacklining, which can be similar to Yoga in the slow movements and positions. It’s rather a way of life than just a sport and it can lead you to the most beautiful places on earth and experience them in a way most people could never imagine.
Standing on one inch webbing stretched across a void can be terrifying and that is kind of the beauty of it. To fight your fear with each step you make takes courage and it is a great achievement when you learn how to do it and to slowly push that fear away. Highlining teaches you to be calm, to live in the moment, to understand how your energy can affect the situation you’re in and to meditate. It takes practice to learn how to calm your mind when you’re fighting to stay on top but finding an absolute mental calm while harnessing a physical strength is a skill that you’ll appreciate not only while highlining but it can help you in many everyday life situations.
