How does our level training work?

Our traditional training is the Franklin Method™ Teacher Training Course that contains 3 levels.

  1. Introductory
  2. Intermediate
  3. Advanced

We also have a new modular style training that is topic based, with shorter training modules.

Introductory Level (Year One)

In year one you will learn about the basics of Dynamic Neuro- Cognitive 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.

Normally this training is held yearly, with 4 modules of 5 days each, spread out over 1 year. For the online training, to make it more convienent, we have changed this to 7 weekends over a 6 month period of time. We will also have replays available for a limited time, for those of you that are in less conducive time zones.

Intermediate Level (Year Two)

In year two you will deepen your knowledge of the muscular system, learn how to use Dynamic Neuro- Cognitive 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.

Advanced Level (Year Three)

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 Dynamic Neuro- Cognitive 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.

    JAN DUNN M.S. BOARDS OF DIRECTORS, INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF DANCE MEDICINE

  • “Whether teaching Pilates, Feldenkrais, Gyrokinesis or Gyrotonic, I turn to the Franklin Method for tools and practices that clarify embodiment for my clients, my students, myself.”
     

    Elizabeth Larkam Director Pilates & Beyond

  • “In this Training program you are literally handed the keys to unlock every problem related to the use of the human body.”

    Jocelyn H Saiki Pilates Instructor

  • “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.”

    Nora St. John Balanced Body

  • “The Franklin Training is the most intelligent approach to learning about the workings of the body I have ever attended. It is not just information, it is the experience of our design as we learn, that is transforming”.

    Tom McCook Fitness Instructor, Director Center of Balance

  • “I initially did it because I wanted to teach classical ballet in a better, more productive way, and on the journey I actually fixed all my own injuries.

    I had knee pain, hip pain, back pain, foot pain, and I don’t have any of that any more. And another added bonus of that has been that I suddenly became awfully creative.”

    Kathryn Hailey Franklin Method© Educator
