Franklin Method Workshop:
Dynamic Alignment for a Healthy Strong & Flexible Back, Neck & Spine

You are always getting better at what you practice. Mentally, physically and emotionally.
– Erik Franklin

Experience the future of movement.  Explore the mind-body connection to feel energized & healthy…

The spine is the masterpiece of design containing over 100 joints and associated muscles & ligments.  How then, is it possible that so many people suffer from debilitating pain associated with the neck & spine?  Complex design requires conscious maintenance.

Why do we have a spine in the first place?

Why is it shaped the way it is?

This workshop will explain the spinal evolution, design and function using imagery and simple movement.  A new embodied understanding of the neck and spine will allow for all daily movement and exercise to benefit spinal health.

How can imagery help how I move you ask?  You have 60,000 thoughts a day and many of those thoughts come in the form of images. How many of those thoughts & images are actually useful?   We will explore the power of the mind to change not only how you move, but how you approach your daily life.  Experience what many of us associate with the benefits of meditation & mindfulness….while you improve strength, flexibility, and co-ordination in your physical body .  

Whether you are an athlete, a yogi, trapped in an office all day or rehabilitating an injury…  you will learn to transform any activity (yoga, pilates, dancing, running swimming, walking, sitting, standing, studying, prepping for a performance or test, etc) into a way that feels better in your body and mind.

This work is the difference between knowing your body can change and actually changing it!! Join us and create an upward spiral of your health & movement.

Connect to what elite athletes have known and applied for over a decade to get to the next level….what you are imaging and focusing on when you move drastically impacts how you move, not just in sports but in life in general.

“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.”

Each workshop begins with a powerful series of scientific based mind/body imagery exercises to demonstrate how you can use your brain to improve your body’s function and your life experience. In this Dynamic Alignment for a Healthy Strong & Flexible Back, Neck & Spine Workshop you will:
