Want to circus proof your shoulders?
Join us for this boot camp to help you find the muscles you should be using to support your shoulders, get them strong, and improve your aerial skills.
Every week for a month you will receive a new set of exercises with instructions and videos to ensure you are doing them well. Each set of exercises is around a theme meant to help you learn about different aspects of hanging and shoulder health.
- Shoulder positional and alignment awareness
- Shoulder mobility
- Rotator cuff strength and stability
- Scapular stability
For each exercise you will have the opportunity to see a video demonstration and then record your own performance for review and individualized feedback by physical therapist Dr. Emily Scherb, a circus medicine specialist.
This program will jump start your shoulder strength to give you strong fundamentals on which you can build all of your other skills!
Dr. Emily Scherb is a physical therapist with a lifelong passion for understanding human movement.
She’s been a practicing aerialist for over twenty-five 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
