The Franklin Method uses dynamic imagery, anatomical embodiment and educational skills to create lasting positive change in your body and mind. The Franklin Method was founded by Eric Franklin in 1994 and is taught all over the world, including the Universities of Vienna, Cologne, Karlsruhe and the Juilliard School in New York. The Franklin Method is recognized by the health providers in Switzerland and is a regularly seen at Dance, Pilates, Yoga and Physiotherapy conferences.One of the greatest discoveries of the 21st century is the plasticity of the brain; the idea that the life we live shapes our brain. The Franklin Method is at the forefront of practical neuro-plasticity-demonstrating how to use the brain to improve bodily function. This method teaches you how to harness the transformative power of the mind, starting with the knowledge that we have the power to change things in and around us.
Physically, the Franklin Method teaches dynamic alignment and how to move your body with maximum efficiency. The whole body is part of a symphony of coordinated movement and, in a sense, your posture is reinvented at every instant. In every moment, the ideal combination of movement between limbs, joints, gravity, connective tissue, and muscle is attempted, and can be achieved, by your brain and nervous system.
*Open to all who have a sincere interest in learning Franklin Method and its approaches to dynamic alignment and postural intelligence.*
