Anatomy of Aerial Artists: The "WHY" of Circus Training

Learn WHY we talk about shoulder engagement and what a hollow body can do for you. Understand WHY form matters and how that form helps you improve. 

Train to be your best and push your limits while preventing injury. We will discuss and experience the anatomy and research behind optimizing  your strength, endurance, and flexibility to become the best performer you can be. Understanding your body can be the boost your training needs to get to the next level, or a great framework for building a new practice. 

The body is not just a sum of it's parts. For example, to best understand how your shoulder mobility or strength could be affecting your lower body alignment or control, join me for both sessions! Discover how to help your body work best for you.

(Session 1) Aerial, it's in the Hips

When moving through the air, our core is the basis of our movement and our stability. Understanding the bio-mechanics of how the muscles and joints of the core, pelvis, and lower extremity will help you improve your flexibility, alignment, gain functional strength and prevent injury. Learn how, where, and when motion should occur to prevent injuries and progress your aerial skills

(Session 2) Hanging with Circus Shoulders

As circus performers, we spend a lot of time with our arms overhead. Learn how they can move so freely while still remaining a stable joint to hang or stand on, or come find out what might be holding them back. Understanding the shoulder girdle will help you have stable, flexible, and pain-free shoulders throughout your training and performing goals. 

(Session 3) The Science of Injury Prevention and Recovery

Train to be your best and push your limits while preventing injury. Learn what your body needs to be a strong, flexible, and dynamic aerialist. Create a training plan to help you achieve your goals and learn when and how to take breaks that will increase your gains.
