More information on the Franklin Method and the workshops:

THE FRANKLIN METHOD: By working from the idea that our brains are plastic or able to transform, the Franklin Method uses creative visualization, embodied anatomy, and somatic exercises to transform the body and improve it’s function, enhancing physical practices by teaching dynamic alignment and movement with maximum efficiency. We produce change by applying imagery to movement. We will experience and embody our anatomy to facilitate positive change in the body.

**************************************************************************************

RELEASE YOUR SHOULDERS — The shoulders are a common place to store tension. We will relax and tone shoulders using movement, imagery, and balls. We will work on new ways of moving to release tension building movement patterns, actualize more flexible movement in the shoulders and to help us sense them relaxing. We will work towards shoulders that are more flexible, lubricated and full of ease.
PELVIC POWER — We will embody the design and movements of the pelvis as a whole...embody the internal pelvic joints and movements to tap into the power that the pelvis can generate by: Learning the biomechanics of the pelvis and hip joint; Increasing comfort and safety of the lower back, knees, and hips while improving posture Increasing pelvic floor and core strength and flexibility; Discovering how to move with less tension Experiencing imagery exercises to balance the pelvis and release the lower back.
