Franklin Method Class
“Becoming more efficient makes movement easier, more comfortable, more fun and it increases our body’s longevity.”
– Erik Franklin
“Posture is a balancing act, not a position.”
“The closer your body image relates to your actual design the better your function.”
“Don’t just solve problems, experience solutions.”
“Attention is the beginning of change.”
“Thoughts are generators of being.”
“You take about 8,000 steps a day, each one an opportunity for improving function.”
“We already have the ability to change our experience using our minds.”
“The image is not the goal, the change is the goal. The image that produces the change is the right image at that moment for that person.”
Explore the mind-body connection to feel energized and healthy…
You have the power to resolve injuries, to slow down the effects of aging on the body and to become better at any physical or mental activity. Whether you are an athlete, a yogi, or trapped in an office all day… through the Franklin Method you will learn to transform any activity (yoga, pilates, dance, running, swimming, walking, sitting, standing) into a way that feels better in your body.
We address the mind through the use of imagery and we address the body by teaching you how it is designed to function. In doing this you will cultivate mental clarity and focus, physical strength, balance, alignment, stability and freedom. You will discover a love of movement and embrace the profound beauty and perfection of the human body. Through movement, dynamic alignment, imagery and the use of props such as balls and thera-bands you will guide your body and mind to its most “feel good” efficient aligned tension free state.
Open to everyone – all ages, sizes and fitness levels!
1 Hour Conditioning with Balls and Bands: This class focuses on whole body movement with bands and balls to improve strength, flexibility and coordination. Focus can be tailored to be restorative to a solid full body workout for conditioning. Students leave feeling energized yet relaxed having experienced the body’s ability to move with effortless ease…enhancing longevity and health in the body and mind.
1 Hour Franklin Method Basics: This is a weekly class that introduces a variety of Franklin concepts to the student. Tailored to the requests and desires of the student body we address various parts of the body including but not limited to knees, pelvis, neck, shoulders, spine, breathing, posture, alignment, efficiency, etc. Students develop an understanding of the body that arises from personal experience involving the senses, mental imagery and changes felt in posture, movement and presence of being.

“My knee pain which has become a way of life particularly when I stand, is so much less after the hour and a half Franklin class. Considering the standing position that is done throughout the practice, it is incredible to me at the end of the class that my knees feel almost pain free.”
“My body feels so relaxed after these classes.”
“My knee pain was gone when I did the exercises using the imagery techniques you explained.”
“I am performing on a much higher level (and even my teacher noticed) in my regular dance class on the weeks I take your classes. I also cannot believe how the bands improve my flexibility so quickly.”
“I took your class for two weeks in a row and each week the day after I had the easiest day where I just enjoyed my life and my job immensely, things just flowed.”
“I can’t wait to bring my husband next time, this is great!”
