Franklin Method Workshop: Unlock the Hips & Liberate the Back

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 pelvis is like the central hub of the body.  You can move your wrist and it has little impact on the rest of your body.  Move your pelvis.  Go ahead, just lift your left hip up.  Give it a try.  The whole rest of your body must reorganize in-response to this movement.  Your head, spine, shoulders, knees, legs and feet all have a different story to tell with the tilt of the pelvis.  It’s like the hub of the car. Experiencing and enhancing your pelvis’s own restorative capacities will dramatically impact the whole body and mind.

You have 60,000 thoughts a day.  Many of those thoughts are in the form of images. How many of those thoughts & images are actually useful?   Explore the power of the mind to create change in your body and in your life.  Experience what many of us associate with the benefits of meditation & mindfulness….while you move & exercise.  

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 Unlock the Hips & Liberate the Back Workshop you will:

  • Image and feel the masterful design of your pelvis, as the core of your movement experience, it is the gateway to resolving pain/tightness immobility in any part of the body particularly the knees, back and feet
  • Train and balance the pelvic joints and muscles using balls and thera- bands

  • Improve focus, coordination, flexibility and strength of the body by combining mental and physical training

“My body feels lighter and more connected/integrated. My mind is clearer and focused. Karen makes somewhat heady anatomical concepts approachable and easy to comprehend and immmediately apply to the joy and appreciation of your hard-working body.” — PL

What My Clients Say…

“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!”
