A 6-month deep dive into muscles and fascia.
Did you enjoy our Franklin Method® Level 1 program? Are you ready to journey deeper and stock your teaching toolbox with more ground-breaking techniques? If so, our new Franklin Method® Level 2 online course was made for you. It builds on the knowledge acquired in Franklin Method® Level 1 to make you a more well-rounded and knowledgeable teacher.
Franklin Method® Level 2 places the focus on the body’s muscles and fascia, and how these interact with the bones, joints and ligaments you learned about in Franklin Method® Level 1. This will broaden your repertoire as a teacher with a deeper understanding of the body’s inner workings as well as exercises and embodiment techniques that help you share this knowledge with others.
As with Franklin Method® Level 1, this Franklin Method® Level 2 course also makes plentiful use of imagery – with a strong focus on showing you how to integrate it into your teaching effectively.

Our training method focuses on the optimal function of the body. We fully acknowledge that part of your experience may be one of pathology, or trauma. If you have questions or need support during the training we hope you will seek the support of a qualified counsellor/psychologist or physical therapist. As there are as many experiences of the body as there are people in the room, we endeavor to stay clearly with embodiment and knowledge of optimal imagery around the structure of the anatomical body.
Meet your Mentor & Orientation Day: August 30th, 2023 @4pm Zurich time
Virtual Graduation: March 8th, 2024 @4pm Zurich time
One of the most valuable and nourishing aspects of the course is our mentoring program. Every student is paired with a member of the Franklin Method® faculty at the beginning of the course. This faculty teacher will act as your mentor throughout the program – meeting with you in small groups once a month, offering answers to your questions, providing feedback on homework, and accompanying you on this wonderful journey.
You will ideally be connected to a mentor with a similar professional background. This mentorship will help you integrate your Franklin Method® learning into your specific teaching discipline – whether it’s dance, Pilates, yoga or something entirely different. Your time zone will also be taken into account to ensure the mentor meetings take place at a comfortable time for you. You will also have the opportunity to change mentors before the course begins if the mentor group we select isn’t quite right for your needs.

What our students say!
What is the Franklin Method®?
The Franklin Method® is a scientifically-proven fitness approach that shows you how to use your mind to enhance your body and health. Our techniques apply embodied function, movement, anatomic knowledge and Dynamic Neuro-Cognitive Imagery™ to create lasting positive change in your body & mind.
The Franklin Method® institute is dedicated to developing the Franklin Method® in step with scientific findings, making it one of the most innovative systems around. For hundreds of teachers across numerous disciplines, the Franklin Method® is the cherry on top that sets their courses apart. And for hundreds of thousands of their students, it’s the method that keeps them pain-free and feeling great.
Our evidence-based method is the most effective exercise system to focus on the body and its function. Dynamic Neuro-cognitive Imagery (DNI™) forms the cornerstone of our method. Imagery, mental and physical training are applied to permanently improve power, flexibility and coordination – 30 years of training around the globe speaks for itself.
The Franklin Method has had a profound influence on my personal and professional life. Eric Franklin’s evolution of imagery and its application contain the knowledge and power to create a quantum leap in our understanding of human movement and our own potential.
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.”
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.”
“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.”
“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”.
Fitness Instructor, Director Center of Balance
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I take part without taking Franklin Method® Level 1 first?
No, unfortunately the Franklin Method® Level 2 course is only open to graduates of Franklin Method® Level 1, as it builds on essential knowledge taught in the Franklin Method® Level 1 course. To learn about the Franklin Method® Level 1 training, please click here.
Which Franklin Method® content can I teach after graduating?
You will be certified to teach the content from the following workshops:
- Feet For Life – Organizing your Dynamic Base
- Strong & Healthy Knees through Imagery
- Toned & Flexible Muscles through Imagery
- The Psoas – Activate Your Inner Core
You will also be certified to teach an array of mini-workshops.
Is it possible to attend the course by replay if I live in a completely different time zone?
Yes! Although we have arranged the sessions to be accessible to as much of the globe as possible, we appreciate that the timing is difficult for students in East Asia, Australia/NZ and the Pacific region in particular. Many students in this part of the world have graduated successfully with us in the past and we are happy to allow you to attend the course through replays. In this case, we would place you in a mentor group that is suitable for your time zone – and attending this group live would be a requirement for taking part in the course.
What do I need to take part in the online course?
To ensure you can enjoy this course to the fullest, you should have an Internet connection which is fast enough to support smooth video streaming on Zoom. You will also need a computer, tablet or smartphone (iOS or android) on which to stream the event and join on video. You will also need to be able to record and upload videos for practice teaching homework sessions. No prior knowledge of anatomy or the Franklin Method is required. In fact, this course is an excellent introduction to what our approach is all about. Participants will be provided with some online course material and an interactive quiz ahead of the event to ensure everyone has the same starting point.
Participants are also required to purchase a Franklin Method Band and Ball Set before the event, as these are useful aids in some of the exercises outlined in the course. To get yours, please visit our product page. If there is no distributor in your area, please contact email@example.com for alternative solutions.
Participants are also required to obtain the required reading of Eric Franklin’s book “Dynamic Alignment”. To get yours, please visit our book page. There are both printed & Kindle versions available.
Are already licensed Franklin Method® Educators able to participate?
Yes, and if you have graduated Franklin Method® Level 2 or above prior to this course, you can repeat the Franklin Method® Level 2 training with a 50% discount on the online training price. * Unfortunately, because of technical reasons we can only offer a few discounted spots for certified Franklin Method® Educators. Please get in touch with us before you register, as we are unable to refund overpaid fees.
How long can I access the video material?
The recordings of the included online video courses and webinar will be accessible to you indefinitely for as long as you are licensed with us. This gives you the chance to refresh your knowledge as and when you need it. Replays of the official training sessions will be available for you to stream for 21 days after each weekend module so you can prepare for your teach-back sessions.
