Improver Straps  

/ with Shannon McKenna (2020)

The goal is to learn to condition mindfully using positions that put the body in equal and relative balance for any and all aerialists to gain greater awareness, mobility, and strength.

Pre-requisites: comfort with bent arm inversions, at least 6 months consistent practice on any aerial apparatus.

 Pre-requisites: comfort with straight-arm inversions and skin the cats (“comfort” means you have the ability to demonstrate one) at least 6 months consistent practice on any aerial apparatus
