The workshop series will begin with a mind body warmup that will introduce students to the principles of the Franklin Method to develop simple tools that can improve the way we move and feel. Students will learn about the design and function of the pelvis and embody this design through functional movements using different types of imagery, visualization, and self touch. This process will improve the connection between the mind and body for students to experience dynamic alignment of the pelvic bones and joints. Students will feel improvements in pelvic posture, flexibility, breathing, balance, reduced tension in the lower back, and an increased ability to stay present in their body. This experiential workshop series is a great opportunity for students to understand how they have been using their pelvis and create change. Students will learn how to move better in daily life and in exercise while preventing unnecessary injuries and relieving aches and pains. Exercises are appropriate for all levels, address daily movements and incorporate Franklin Method Balls and Bands to release and strengthen muscles. We will also discuss cues commonly used in exercise systems that may not be the best to encourage healthy function. Franklin Method Balls and Bands will be available for purchase at the first workshop and will be used in each class.
Dates: 2/13, 2/27, 3/6, 3/13
