Over the last several months we ran our first ever Mat and Reformer Pilates Teacher Training program. As we prepare and open up registration for the 2017-2018 360 Hour program (kicking off this Fall), we sat down with three of the students from our inaugural session. We hope that as they share their personal experiences […]
To say that walking is good for you is sort of like saying breathing and eating are good for you. It’s so obvious I wonder why I still often find myself encouraging and defending the need for our bodies to walk.
Recently, I’ve been mulling over (on my walks) the benefits to my life walking has […]
I’m en route home from lovely, if rainy, Portland and my third immersive week of the Franklin Method, Level 2 training.
The Franklin Method work continues to take deep roots, not only for me but within me. The two things that first drew me to the Method were: my desire to bring the best knowledge to […]
First, we love you. We really do!
We care about your health and your vitality and your well-being.
Your heart is a muscle. It can also be likened to a bag, (see Eric Franklin’s video blog!). You can imagine that if you have a compressed or inflexible thoracic (upper back) spine that the heart itself will have […]
I love flipping the calendar over to the month of January. It’s un-marked, fresh and full of space and promise. I love it the way I love taking down the holiday decorations and feeling like I have somehow more room in my house. I love cleaning one room and removing all the things in it […]

It has been a hard week for many people. Living with election results south of the border, losing the wonderful poet Mr. Cohen – it’s all hard. In our house, we are taking it in a little bit at a time. As dual citizens, my husband and I feel like we have a lot to […]
Coming home from Portland, where I had been studying for a week in mid September with the Franklin Level 2 group, I felt a lot of gratitude.
Getting to spend five days immersed in muscles, fascia, and embodiment is dreamy for someone like me. No distractions, just pure learning. The Franklin Method is based on using […]
I’m crossing over the Rockies right now on the red eye flight back from Portland, Oregon. I was there for a week studying with The Franklin Method, as a part of my Level 2 teacher training.
When I was studying Dance at Arizona State University, back in 1992, I took a course called IdeoKinesis with Pamela […]
Calling all Yoga, Pilates and Fitness Instructors! Is your cuing at odds with what’s actually happening in the body? For example, in a twist we often hear cues like, “lengthen into your twist”. This isn’t in alignment with what the spine is doing when we twist.
Using the wisdom from the Franklin Method Bone Rhythms, at […]
