“The Franklin method will do more to improve your teaching of any kind of movement than any other system or program I have studied. If you want to become the best teacher you can be, take this program.”
First we recommend you participate in a workshop either live or our online courses; titles range from:
After you attended one of the above said workshops (or any other workshop offered by Eric Franklin or Morten Dithmer), there is the Franklin Method™ Teacher Training Course that contains 3 levels.
In year one you will learn about the basics of Imagery in all its applications. Especially the bone-rhythms of the body and how the bones naturally move inside your body to produce efficient and effortless movement. Plus, we cover fundamentals such as biomechanics, posture and breathing. At the end of the course you receive a certificate and the right to teach a trio of the introductory workshops: Basic Introduction to Imagery, Pelvic Power and Healthy Spine.
In year two you will deepen your knowledge of the muscular system, learn how to use imagery to facilitate muscles, how to use touch to affect a change in muscle tension, all the ins and outs of strength, stretching and endurance training. Upon completion you will receive a certificate and the right to teach a series of workshops like a Psoas class, a ball and Thera-Band® class and a Foot class.
In year three we cover the inner anatomy, where you will deepen your insight and experience of all the systems of the body: nervous system, cardio vascular, immune system and lymphatic system. You will learn how to use imagery to affect positive change and experience full organic support. We combine the information of the bone rhythms, the muscle interactions and the organs into a whole. Upon completion you will receive a certificate and the right to teach a number of topic related workshops. Note that you can take the introductory level by itself. You can add on the Intermediate Level or take the whole program as your interest and desire dictates. We like to point out that in these trainings you receive information, which you not so much are to get as to become. Thus the common asked question why not just do year one, we leave that possibility open but most students experience a deepening of their experience of the material as they go on with year 2 and 3.
