Save Your Shoulders: Injury Prevention for Aerialists

Are you at risk for shoulder injury?

This highly interactive, two-hour workshop will lead a through a battery of circus-specific strength and flexibility tests to determine your injury risk during participation in circus activities. You will receive either a pass/ fail score on each part of the test, and will be instructed in specific exercises for the components that you did not pass.

At the end of the workshop, you will have a comprehensive injury-prevention plan of exercises, mobility drills, and stretches that is specific to YOU and your body! You will also be instructed in a comprehensive warm up and cool down routine that will both optimize your athletic performance AND prevent future injuries!
