Workshop: How to care for yourself & others
May 6, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm$50
As a circus artist your body may be your most valuable asset. Invest in feeling better. Learn the basics of anatomy, how to better support your body’s structure, increase range of motion, and alleviate pain. This workshop will help you better understand your body and how to take care of it as well as provide a few easy but effective ways to work on yourself and others.
The first hour will consist of information and demonstration, as well as a time for questions. The second hour will go over exercises and bodywork techniques where students will practice on one another and get coaching.
The purpose of this workshop is to better inform circus artists about their bodies and improve self-care as well as give them some tools to help others. We will discuss the basics of anatomy, common issues among circus artists, how to have better alignment, and what we can do to alleviate pain and differentiate connective tissue.
