    It’s really important to find the "sweet spot" on your shoulder, where your bra strap goes, but I’ve also found that felix’s shoulder mount grip, where the arm on the side that you’re mounting from comes around the front, helps to minimize pain. It makes a more cushioned pocket. The shoulder mount has ALWAYS gives me some pain, though, especially if I try to raise myself straight up. It’s better to stay lower when you grab with your legs in the beginning.

    I’ve only ever had skin pinching, a nice hicky, and just at first. I sit the pole on the muscles right next to my neck to mount up and when I roll over I take my weight with my hooked legs. Watch Veena’s lesson. At no point is the collarbone in contact with the pole! Listen to what she says at 3.50. It can also hurt if you use too much momentum and don’t control the move enough causing you to bang into the pole at different points. Play with different grip types and the distance between your hands and shoulder til you find what works best for you. Check here for grip discussion:

    Good luck! This is one of my all time fav moves
