Having spent my life in the circus as a trapeze artist and athlete I got many injuries. Then I started to realise there could be something wrong with the way we are trained. I looked for research, but while there is a lot on rhythmic gymnastics and other Olympic sports, there is very little on injury prevention in contortion. So as a coach and creator I talked to doctors and physios and learned anatomy. I have made it my mission to train my students so that they can avoid injury while training and performing.
