Franklin Method Art of Sensory Queuing and Metaphor for Teaching
When we move we often focus on the positioning of the body parts from the outside; i.e., where to place the knee, head, arm, etc. But you can clearly visualize what is happening in the parts of the body that are not seen from the outside, i.e., the brain, joints, bones, muscles, and fascia. This course will dive into the tools to ignite and refine your focus, sensory pathways, and the brain-body connection. This Franklin Method experience will bring your movement and teaching capacity to the next level.
