Meet the Athlete
Name: Andrea Dattoli
Andrea is a slackliner from Mexico. She's a very passionate practioneer and teacher of the following three things: Yoga, Acroyoga and Slacklining! The mastering of these 3 skills make up for an unique creative slackline style with lots of controlled and elegant yoga moves on the slackline. Next to that she's a social psychologist and sometimes an artist!
She defines her self as someone who experiments with all forms of movement, lately she has been mainly interested in the development of her balance. This has led to new Yoga moves on the floor & on the slackline. Her improved balance on the line helps her a lot while doing Yoga and Acroyoga. Her moves come from moving her body consious and constant motivation. She has been slacklining for 5 years now.
She's a certified teacher in Acroyoga TT Montreal since 2015 and Hatha Yoga. She's a member of the Mexico City slackline team "Tenochtitline Slackline México". Her goal is to motivate the community and make it grow, and above all to create new possibilities of art, corporal expression and options to open a path of heailing and well-being.
Shows / Workshops
Andrea hasn't done a true show yet, but it's always magical to see her move so calmly and elegenant on the highline which is already a great performance! However she has a lot of experience giving slackline workshops, for beginners and about Yogalining. The workshops she gave were in numerous of places, think about yoga centres, musical / cultural events and even in a juvenal jail! She's trying to show kids, adults, yoga teachers and physiotherapist the way of the slackline! Sharing is very important to her.
Check out her photo on the left, Andrea is a true master in Yoga on the line! Check out the video below for a feel about what Yoga on the line is. Slowly she's moving from the slow and controlled yoga to the highline trickbouncing as well.

Andrea's favorite moments / Pictures
Valle de Bravo, México. One of the best moments, seeing the sunset on a highline on my 28th birthday with all my friends hanging and singing me happy birthdays.
Highline Yoga session in Salazar.
Highline in Squamish. After those beautiful days in the Squamish Highline Gathering, I just wanted to contemplate the amazing view on a side plank. Beautiful feeling of being quitte and with myself. Picture by Maurico Ramos
