Franklin Method Workshops and Retreats

Imagery is what you're thinking. Usually during exercise you're thinking mostly about things not even remotely connected to exercise. And that's okay, but when you want a breakthrough or to fundamentally change some aspect of your movement, you need the power of purposeful imagery. When the elite level athlete meets with his coach, they are not talking about the latest fashion. They are building the imagery and crafting a context in which the athlete can create the best possible environment for success. The ability to use imagery for success is what separates the gold-medalist from the silver. It's not like it used to be: where one athlete had a fundamentally better training program than another. These days, the science is very clear about what intervals should be run, what weight lifting routine will provide the most strength gains. Now it comes down to a mental game. Imagery takes many forms and influences muscle tone, posture, strength, flexibility and coordination. In my workshops we use many types of imagery but focus principally on anatomical and biomechanical imagery. Knowing how your body works will put you in the driver's seat and ensures that your physical patterns are not working against your body's design. This knowledge lets us build imagery that will speak to you and powerfully impact your body. Immediately.
