In collaboration with Jennifer Freeman, PT (practicing and research faculty at Mercer University in Atlanta) this workshop focuses on safe progressions to go from the ground to the air, and from inverting on two to one arm, with a movement screen, a investigation into good body mechanics as well as different functional training tools, exercises and techniques to get your butt over your head.This clinic will include both teaching cues and training tools beneficial for anyone from a beginner wishing to deepen their understanding to coaches interested in learning how to recognize when a student is displaying signs of potential movement dysfunction.Prerequisites: Anyone is welcome as it is primarily a theory-based workshop (and anyone can watch and learn), though it is strongly encouraged attendees have two arm inversions with straight arms (or at least inversions of any kind).$75, no refunds offeredAaron Koz is a traveling movement and circus coach previously based in the San Francisco Bay Area. He began his teaching career teaching parkour when he was 18. He started at Circus Warehouse’s intensive program, and has studied under different coaches in SF, Montreal, and Mexico. His circus teaching career began in San Francisco, and since then he has taught nationally and internationally. He draws from his academic background in neuroscience and psychology to augment his work as an instructor. He believes that being a teacher means forever reaching for better ways to teach so more recently he has collaborated heavily with physical therapists to help augment and structure his teaching offerings.During 2018, Aaron will be shadowing more physical therapists who have experience working with gymnasts, circus artists, and other high level athletes to further add to his understanding and knowledge of biomechanics, movement prep, and injury prevention.
