“If you want to change your body, start by changing your mind”
— Eric Franklin

The Franklin Method® uses Dynamic Neuro-cognitive Imagery™, anatomical embodiment and educational skills to create lasting positive change in your body and mind. But what does that mean?? Check out this video for my take on it.

The Franklin Method® uses Dynamic Neuro-cognitive Imagery, anatomical embodiment and educational skills to create lasting positive change in your body and mind. One of the greatest discoveries of the 21st century is the plasticity of the brain; that the lives we live shape the brain we develop. The Franklin Method® is at the forefront of practical neuro-plasticity; showing you how to use your brain to improve your body’s function. Learn how to harness the transforming power of the mind and improve all of your abilities. It all starts with the knowledge that we have the power to change.

The Franklin Method® teaches dynamic alignment and how to move your body with maximum efficiency to keep your body youthful and energized. Your whole body is part of a symphony of coordinated movement. In a sense, your posture is reinvented at every instant. In every moment, the ideal combination of limbs, joints, gravity, moving parts, connective tissue, and muscle must be found and directed by your brain and nervous system.

“The Franklin Method does not teach a set of exercises. The Franklin Method teaches how any movement can become a beneficial exercise if performed with good function.”
— Eric Franklin

Workshops

Franklin Method® workshops are designed to help you understand and embody your natural anatomy and function in a way that in turn improves your function and performance. Students experience increased flexibility (without stretching), strength (without lifting weights), improved balance, stability, mobility, posture, breathing, and more. In addition to all the physical benefits, most report feeling more calm, relaxed, present, and able to focus and think more clearly. All in one class. And it's fun!

Experience the power of proprioception + Melt shoulder tension away and improve range of motion in the shoulder joint. Plus learn about how your body knows where it is in space - the proprioceptive nervous system!

"How can this all be possible?" you ask? Well, we learn that, too. The Franklin Method® isn't about a series of exercises or postures that you do, imitating a teacher or style. We actually teach you how to create positive change in your movement experience - it's scientifically proven, and it turns out, everyone can learn these skills, and, even better, successfully use them at anytime, free, and easy. Part of "doing Franklin Method" is learning and practicing how to engage our minds - through anatomical and metaphorical imagery, kinesthetic feedback and self-talk - to quickly and easily improve our movement experience, also improving function, performance, mobility, flexibility, strength, longevity, etc.

What to Expect

Every class is interactive and experiential, and typically focuses in on a specific area of the body like the pelvis, spine, or foot. We regularly experience that embodying and improving function in one area of the body generally improves function - such as balance, strength, flexibility, coordination - throughout the whole body.

We also focus on improving what we do most of the time, such as walking, sitting, standing, breathing, thinking - as we improve those things, we're improving most of our daily experience as well as laying the foundation for even better, healthier physical and mental performance in the other things we do - running, dance, back flips, competitive kickball, headstands. Whatever it may be.

Classes and workshops are open to all fitness levels.
