Returning to Training after a Long Absence
(like an injury, any break from training, and initially developed for Covid Quarentine!)
What does coming back to training after a long(ish) break mean for our bodies? What changes when we are away from the studio?
Whether you have been away from training due to travel, changes in life situation, injury (that is now recovered), or what this course was originally developed for, a return from Covid quarentine, this is the course for you that will help you understand the changes that occur in our bodies when we are not training and what happens when we start returning to circus activities and the stresses it puts on it.
You may have tried to keep up with training, but life often gets in the way and sometimes we aren't able to get into the studio. So what happens when you return to having access to your apparatus, your coaches, and your training partners? How can we do it safely?
Join the talk to learn more about safely returning to training
(Designed for a return from COVID but applicable to everyone!)
Dr. Emily Scherb is a physical therapist with a lifelong passion for understanding human movement.
She’s been a practicing aerialist for almost 30 years and has dangled from balloons, danced in the air, and swung from trapezes. That background inspired her to specialize her practice on circus and aerial artists. She has a proven track record of helping patients who have not seen results with traditional physical therapy due to her unique perspective on how the body works both on the ground and in the air.
As an educator, she travels the country teaching circus artists, instructors, and healthcare professionals about the unique physical demands and challenges of training the body to do incredible feats.
She received her graduate degrees from Washington University in St. Louis and now lives in Seattle, where she works with professional and pre-professional circus artists through her positions as Resident Physical Therapist at the School of Acrobatics and New Circus Arts and as the Company Physical Therapist for the contemporary circus company Acrobatic Conundrum.
Her first book, Applied Anatomy of Aerial Artists was released in August 2018
