Current Franklin Method Classes/Workshops:
Understanding and exploring the movements of the pelvis can be crucial in creating ease in your lower back and hips. In this workshop we will learn/embody the anatomy of the muscles of the pelvic floor/wall (including the piriformis) and examine how this relates to movement and breathing. You will learn images to use daily to continue the feeling of support without grip, as well as exercises to train the pelvic floor. This will be beneficial to all, but especially those who experience S/I pain, low back/pelvic pain, incontinence, digestive issues. Post-partum moms also encouraged to attend. This workshop is for all levels of experience and movement.
Using exercises using the Franklin Method balls/bands to create strength and flexibility and mobility in the entire body, we'll focus on core, legs and glutes and arms and shoulders in a complete, accessible and energizing movement workout for everyone. Timed repetitions of each exercise set with great music and smart, organized movement that will set you up to feel great. These classes are for all levels of movement and all capabilities but expect a workout!
Poor hamstrings - they get such a bad rap and are often thought of as being "tight" or "inflexible." In this workshop, we will examine the function of this wonderful grouping of muscles and learn exercises to give them what they love most: movement! Learn some creative ways to energize, awaken, lengthen and embody the happiest of hamstrings...without ever even "stretching" them. If you walk, run, bike, lunge, sit, drive, crawl or kick, this workshop is for you. All levels!
Each class has one area of focus (sometimes something anatomical like the sacrum or diaphragm and sometimes a concept like efficient movement or coordination) and will often utilize large therabands and small rubber balls in movements.
