Video: Diaphragm Exercises (12-5-17) Transformation FME

Welcome to this week’s transformation tools!

December: Franklin Method in Daily Life: Breathing

I hope you enjoyed last week’s final walking week of November that we packed with material. I know we added more tools than normal but we’re back to one tool a week, a more manageable number for you to review.

This month we are focusing on breathing. December is a stressful month for a lot of people. It’s a month where we sometimes add a little extra to our load. For example: extra Travel, family, shopping, cooking can cause our stress level to increase. So this month we’re going to remind you to breathe and treat yourself to more oxygen, improved circulation and reduced stress.

If we can improve something we do that often, the quality of our life will improve in general. Well, breathing is something we do very often: we breathe about 20000 times a day!

The first week’s tool Franklin Method Diaphragm Exercises (part 1) is a video that Eric filmed himself for you.


In your toolbox for this week we have:

  •  Video lesson: Franklin Method Diaphragm Exercises (part 1)

We’ve also added a PDF download of our imagery and movement chart. You can use this throughout the Transformation series to track your own movement and imagery progress

    • Community Discussion: This month’s theme is how to use Franklin Method in your everyday life: breathing. The goal is to make what you do everyday better. This week we started the month with a video of diaphragm exercises from Eric to help you with breathing and voice production.  Let’s see if taking these exercises into your daily life can help improve your breathing.  What are your goals for improving what you do everyday? Can you pair any of these exercises with what you’ve learned about walking, balance and imagery during this transformation journey? Make note of your breathing this week. At the end of the month when you do a comparison you can see if you find a difference. You can post your evaluation and discussion here : community forum.
