Ergonomics for Spinners with Carson Demers

Read Carson Demers bio here!

Time seems suspended when you’re at your spinning wheel. Hours melt away but stress and strain can be accumulating in your body. Spinning shouldn’t hurt! In this class you’ll learn what ergonomic risk factors are and where they exist in spinning at a wheel. Most importantly you’ll learn what to do to minimize them and early warning signs that could prevent an injury. Safer strategies for seating, balancing your spinning work with other activities to keep you comfortable and productive, optimizing wheel mechanics and of course, stretches will all be taught. This is not a “how to spin” class.

Skill Level: Beginner - Students must be able to spin singles with a spinning wheel.
