"Shoulder Barre is the best thing that has happened to my shoulders. I’m hypermobile, have extremely over-eager biceps and very little shoulder stability. After doing Shoulder Barre as part of my exercise/warmups, I’m feeling engagement in all sorts of new places that should have been working, but weren’t."

Megan Sterling

Aerialist and Pole Dancer

" Shoulder Barre is totally accessible for an anatomy newb like me to grasp. It has real world examples that make sense to circus people and normal people alike. It helped me locate certain muscles and understand what the actual heck they do. "

Molly Ruth

Rope Artist

"Shannon McKenna's library is the gold standard in great aerial information. I recommend The Fundamentals of Aerial Alignment to every student of mine!"
