Take your teaching deeper
with the Franklin Method®.

Understand. Embody. Teach.

You can now enroll for our FIRST EVER Franklin Method® Level 4 Online course!

— Only available to Level 3 Graduates! —


A brand-new 6-month course focused on embodying
the very building blocks of human experience. 

Based on decades of experience in movement teaching and research into the science behind embodiment, we are immensely proud to introduce Franklin Method® Level 4 Online. This course marks a significant expansion in our canon of teacher training courses, sharing – for the very first time – insights and exercises focused on our senses, perception and cells.

This course will put you well on the way to becoming an expert in holistic health and wellbeing. We’ll be exploring the various aspects that make up sensation and perception, and then move right down to the building blocks of the body – our cells themselves. By learning to embody these aspects of our being, you will not only do wonders for your own body, but you’ll also be in a position to offer qualified specialist advice and training to others.

No matter what modality you mainly teach, exercises and embodiments relating to our perception and senses can always be weaved into your teaching – whether ad hoc in the middle of your class or as a stand-alone specialist workshop. This type of knowledge sets you apart from the crowd – and offers you a handful of one-of-a-kind workshops you can teach on top of your usual content. This is your chance to become a truly exceptional embodiment teacher with expertise only a handful of people worldwide can match -and a wonderful opportunity to take your income and teaching business to a whole new level.

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.


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.

How does our level training work?

Spread over multiple 3-day weekends, our Level 1/2/3/4 training courses provide a deep insight into teaching all aspects of physical health and wellbeing according to the Franklin Method.

Each level course builds on the last one, stocking your teaching toolbox with different expertise, and certifying you to teach an array of workshops. The courses focus on the following areas:

  • Level 1 (Introductory Level) The power of imagery, anatomy and movement, with a particular focus on bones and fundamentals.
  • Level 2 (Intermediate Level) Deepen your knowledge, with a strong focus on the muscular system.
  • Level 3 (Advanced Level) Inner anatomy and the organs, experiencing all the systems of the body and how they interact.
  • Level 4 (Expert Level) An exploration of our sensory apparatus, our perception and the cells of our body.

Available worldwide!

Thanks to the live streaming format of this course, you can learn and interact with Eric Franklin no matter where you live. If you live in a time zone that makes live attendance difficult, please reach out to us to find out how this course can work for you.

Tools of the trade

On top of the anatomical content this course provides, there’s a strong emphasis on making you a better, more successful teacher. You will gain practical techniques to help you make classes more effective and fun, and even explanations on how to successfully teach online.

Peer learning & mentors

The course includes regular group sessions with licensed Franklin Method faculty mentors. You receive one-on-one homework reviews, group projects and Q&As. We also harness the power of peer learning in teach-back sessions.

Replay access

You will receive replay access to the previous module’s live recordings until the next module begins – this gives you plenty of time to cement content you watch live or review anything that you miss at your leisure and on your own time.

What is the Franklin Method®?

  • “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.”

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I use this course to support my career?

First and foremost, after completing this course you are entitled to practice as a Franklin Method Educator. In addition, this course is particularly popular with already qualified therapists, exercise educators and yoga, Pilates, sports and dance teachers. Why? Because it equips you with all the tools you need to help your students or patients gain a healthier body and release troublesome tension. This unlocks potential, maximizes performance and adds vital variety to your teaching toolbox. You can read detailed information on our licensing model for trainers here.

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 support@franklinmethod.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.

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. 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. 

Are already licensed Franklin Method® movement educators able to participate?

Yes, and if you have already graduated level 3 prior to this course, you can repeat the level 3 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 FM educators. Please get in touch with us before you register, as we are unable to refund overpaid fees.
