About Shea

All-Star Middle Linebacker, Shea Emry, is one of the fiercest and nastiest players in the Canadian Football League and has been simultaneously tackling on a new field: men’s health and development. Sidelined with an injury in 2011, Emry was faced with a lifetime of negative self-image from traumatic childhood experiences which led to the ensuing torment of upholding the machismo standards of masculinity in professional sport. Immersed in a culture that expects men to mask their feelings, Emry recognized the toxic silence of manliness was affecting more than just him. Using his platform in professional sport, Emry founded Wellmen, a movement that proves to be a ‘real man’ is about being a balanced man.

Emry uses the strength of an axe and vulnerability of a tree pose blended into an experience which opens the possibilities of transparency and freedom. He aims to inspire a rewilding of the culture of masculinity, one that accepts a more whole and complete human person. No part, tear, feeling or grunt left out.
