The Franklin Method
Immersion into the body's design and functional training
Learn how the body moves so we can move correctly throughout our live
In the Franklin Method we focus on how the body is designed to move and how to experience this design in our own body (Embodiment). We also use Dynamic Imagery to improve the way we move.
The 3 principles of the Franklin Method:
The body is designed to move safely and efficiently. When we move, our bones move in relationship to each other in a 3 dimensional dance which you can’t necessarily see from the outside. In The Franklin Method we call this functional movement of the bones “The Bone Rhythms”.
These rhythms have developed evolutionary as we humans have developed as a species to adapt and survive in a changing environment.
Dynamic Neuro-Cognitive Imagery
In The Franklin Method we use the term 'Dynamic Imagery' as a way to describe how we can stimulate and improve the communication between the brain and the body. We now know that the brain is plastic and that it changes through experiences. You can even use your own brain to change the brain. This is not meant metaphorically but literally; to change the brains architecture according to how you use your brain.
We can use our brain to send messages through our body with e.g. a metaphorical imagery. The body in reverse sends a message to the brain about how the local situation is at the moment. 'Dynamic Imagery' can be used as a tool to improve the way we move.
This is not just about giving information and insight about the body’s design.
What is important is to get a physical experience of this information and insight: This means to experience an improved function or movement and to have the tools available to recreate this experience.
