About the event

Have you been struggling with your shoulders? Are your lovely lats (your best frenemy) too tight, but not strong enough? How’s the clicking and the popping? This 1 hour workshop will equip you with the following:

  • Knowledge of the basic anatomy of your shoulders
  • Tools to relieve your pain and tightness
  • Drills that will strengthen your shoulders (and not suck)

About the instructor: 

Dr. JJ (they/them) is a physical therapist, dancer, long distance runner, lifter, handstanding bendy human, and a trauma informed provider. JJ grew up as a competitive rower, and fell in love with dancing in college. Their background as an athlete, dancer, and acrobat is what makes JJ truly believe that movement is medicine, and a path to empowerment when facing trauma. JJ has a doctorate of Physical Therapy from UNC and their movement training also includes Kettlebells, acrobat training, handstands, AcroYoga, and barbell lifting. JJ chose to specialize in treating acrobats, aerialists, pole dancers, unique movement artists because they love the complexity of these performers and the unique stresses put on the body when you’re upside down (or some variation thereof). They have a passion for building bodies and movement patterns that are durable, beautiful, and functional from the inside out.
