Eric Franklin Presents:

"I have rather broad feet, which has never bothered me, except for when it came to shoe sizes, the shoes were usually too long when I was wearing the right width. When I started dancing I learned that elegant, supple and moving feet are in demand, and my feet, which until now were a good platform for my previous position in life, I suddenly started to look at in another light.

I naturally tried to improve the mobility and elegance of my feet. This was by some of the most radical means in dance that reminded me of medieval torture practices. Such as stretching in the bathtub with scalding hot water.

Unchanged by these painful techniques, I decided to understand the function of the feet better. Was there a way to improve the balance, the jump strength and mobility of which I understood felt, experienced my feet? So this began my journey to embodied feet.

In the beginning the process was a combination of anatomical learning and exercises that fit these findings. But one day, I remember exactly, I was on the way to the grocery store. I went to the entrance and suddenly I felt my feet in every detail, every joint, every movement. It was clear to me at once. I felt and saw it. I was surprised, but also knew that this can happen after a long time studying the construction of the body and the function. My brain had clearly said it's enough study, here is the embodiment!

I was just going to the store, but the feeling of swinging, elastic feet was so wonderful that I simply went on, through the store, out to the back door and even further to enjoy this experience.

This course will provide you with an embodied foot. This will give you a good base for your life and will increase your balance, strength and flexibility. It's time for Happy Feet!"
