The spine is a masterpiece of design containing over one hundred joints and associated muscles and ligaments. Complex design requires conscious maintenance. Why do we have a spine in the first place? Why is it shaped the way it is? This workshop will explain spinal evolution, design and function using imagery and simple movement. A new embodied understanding of the spine will allow for all daily movement and exercise to benefit spinal health.
The Franklin Method uses-
Dynamic Imagery, a multi sensory and kinesthetic way of using the brain to affect movement and function.
Experiential Anatomy, which gives you direct physical awareness of your body’s function and design.
Reconditioning Movement, which integrates dynamic imagery with experiential anatomy to produce optimum function.
We will learn:
• Exercises to strengthen the intervertebral discs, joints and muscles.
• How the ligaments and discs interact to strengthen the spine
• The rotational and coupled motion dynamics of the spine
