Franklin Method®: Pelvic Power for Core Integration w/Trey Fry

This, in turn, will increase the safety of the lower back, knees and feet. Sacral balance is key to the alignment of the spine and legs. We will experience how the sacrum actually moves as a key to understanding and creating efficient, safe movement. Throughout the workshop imagery and language is used that explains the complex subject matter at all levels of experience. Evolutionary logic will provide a fresh and practical understanding of the anatomy and biomechanics of the pelvis.The participants will leave the workshop with a sense of aligned strength through the pelvic floor, the feet firmly balanced and the spine long and buoyant.
In this workshop, you will:
•Experience effortless alignment and balance for the whole body through experiential understanding of the pelvic bones and Joints

Franklin Method®: Imagery for a Strong & Flexible Spine
The spine is a masterpiece of design containing over one hundred joints and associated muscles and ligaments. How, then, is it possible that so many people suffer from debilitating pain associated with the spine?
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.
-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
-Understand which cues in exercise, Pilates, Yoga and dance support optimal spinal function
Franklin Method®: Fabulous Feet
Our feet are an evolutionary marvel – yet most of us are unaware of the amazing design that makes this possible. This workshop will describe the structure and function of the foot and how our feet integrate with our knees and pelvis to create healthy movement. Without strong and well-aligned feet good posture cannot be attained and healthy walking, running, jumping and even standing is all but impossible.
Our feet propel us through life and are our foundation to the earth. How we take care of them can have a huge impact on how we move, our flexibility and how we feel. Fabulous Feet will positively affect any type of exercise, dance, or movement.
In this workshop, you will:
• Learn about the functional anatomy of the foot
• Learn exercises to keep your feet fit, strong and flexible
• Learn exercises to improve the integration of your lower leg, foot, knees and pelvis
• Improve posture and balance and help ease low back tightness and pain
