Our approach is a playful yet in depth style of teaching. Learning in the Franklin Method™ is centered around embodiment; the student experiencing the material in their own bodies. It also includes movement, release techniques and constructive rest.

A typical day will include a warm-up in the morning followed by the experiential anatomy topic, constructive rest after lunch and the day ends with conditioning and movement, where the topic of the day is integrated. The Franklin Method™ cultivates awareness of the body’s different aspects and their interrelationships. The aim is to stimulate a healthy balance and optimal life expression. We not only aim to improve what we have but to improve what we can become.

The Franklin Method™ is a totally new way of training which will supplement and enrich traditional training methods. It combines scientific and anatomical analysis with movement and imagery exercises that are both effective and fun. It can be used for specific performance enhancement as well as a tool to improve overall fitness and body awareness. It proposes that there is so much more potential, enjoyment and wellness for us all to experience.

As a Movement Professional

The combing of strengthening, coordination and stretching into one body conditioning routine represents a breakthrough in physical training. Not only do you gain in all these aspects; power balance and flexibility. The exercise can as well be tailor made to resemble any specific discipline. It can also be used to balance out any ill effects from one-sided or repetitive routines.

As a Physical Therapist

The human body is a precision machine. The brain receives about 2 billion messages per second and balances them all into a functional whole. Thus we can run into problems when it has been slightly off kilter for a number of years and we try to do a dramatic adjustment of any kind. Like cracking walnuts with a jack hammer. It will confuse the nervous system as will any one-sided focus. A little precision instruction, awareness of function and design can have great results.

Learn how to ask the right questions when considering a particular exercise: What is the goal? What is the joint motion, what muscles are involved? How can an exercise be modified to be healthier, safer and more efficient?
