*What*:        Experience effortless alignment and balance for the whole
body through the Franklin Method. We use Dynamic Neurocognitive Imagery ©,
functional anatomy, and movement in a student-centered learning
environment. Imagery and language are used to guide our understanding of
complex subject matter at all levels of experience. Evolutionary logic will
provide a fresh and practical understanding of the anatomy and biomechanics
of the body.

These classes will focus on the practical application of imagery techniques
to increase the power, alignment, and flexibility throughout the body. To
balance the action of the joints we will experience the natural bone
rhythms in support of healthy function. This in turn, will increase our
stability, mobility and allow us to move more closely to the way our bodies
are designed rather than through our habits.  We will learn how to use the
Franklin balls to release tension, create more awareness and balance the
joints and muscles.
