Release tension in your neck and shoulders... in just 10 mins!!Read More
On Saturday I was lucky enough to spend the day with 15 Pilates teachers at The Osteopathy and Pilates Studio in beautiful Bath. We spent the morning studying 'The anatomy and ease of breathing' and the afternoon relaxing our necks and liberating our shoulders.
Some students had met the Franklin Method before, and many have Eric's incredible books- but they all seemed to be blown away by the embodiments that they experienced and were excited about how this would influence their own movement and their teaching.
I am looking forward to visiting Bath for more workshops just after Easter 2015. It's so inspiring to share this amazing material!

On Thursday last week I taught ‘Relax your neck, liberate your shoulders’ with my good friend Alysen Starko-Bowes from Vancouver, at Reflections Yoga, Manhattan, New York. We had 12 wonderful students who had this to say: 'One week later and still feeling the benefits of your workshop - SUCH great work' Hannah NY, 'My shoulders feel AMAZING'- Damian NY, 'My scapulars are still swinging!'- Annie, London
On wednesday 24th September 2014 I was at New York University, of all places, assisting the genius Eric Franklin. 68 dancers experienced how embodying the incredible design of the foot will help them to jump higher, become stronger, more flexible and dance for longer with less injuries.
They were absolutely amazed by the results and the plan is to have Franklin method taught regularly at NYU- Lucky dancers!
- Take 60 secs to notice how you feel physically- notice your breath, your weight placement, and your posture- without judging, just notice- how are you?
- Notice your breath, can it be slow? Relaxed? Can you imagine your cells drinking in the oxygen from your inhale and releasing any physical and emotional tension/ toxins?
- Is there something that you can do for YOU today? to support yourself to feel even just 5% better than you do right now.. have a nap? Create a delicious, nutritious meal? Go for a walk and enjoy the fresh air? Read a book? What do YOU need to be your best self? Don’t think, just feel and listen- like you’re listening to a good friend.
