Dynamic Neuro-Cognitive Imagery (DNI; The Franklin Method) for Fascial Engagement

N.B. This workshop is held at the Crowne Plaza hotel.

Dynamic Neuro-Cognitive Imagery (DNI), also known as “The Franklin Method”, is a codified framework of imagery tools and its applications to motor performance. This approach is built on relevant knowledge within the fields of anatomy, biomechanics, motor learning, and pedagogy, with the goals of gaining better embodiment and exploitation of body structure and biomechanics.  Imagery has been shown to beneficially affect motor performance, including increasing mean power, strength, ROM, and enhancing movement patterns. Therefore, and based on fascial-specific tying of cognitive and motor elements offered by DNI, we suggest that fascia targeted DNI may facilitate one’s experience and use of fascial function and biomechanics, thereby enhancing sports performance and decreasing risk of injuries.

In this workshop, participants will:

1) Be introduced to DNI training and its applications to fascial work and fascia-targeted exercises.

2) Learn fascia-targeted DNI warm-up.

3) Practice a variety of fascia-targeted imagery exercises for enhancing enhanced flexibility.

Mr. Eric Franklin is a movement teacher and an expert in imagery training and its applications to dance, movement, and body therapies. Mr. Franklin holds a BS Degree from the University of Zürich (Switzerland) and a BFA Degree from New York University (USA). He is the founder of “The Franklin Method” and “Dynamic Neuro-cognitive Imagery” methods and wrote 21 books about body-mind, imagery, and movement. DNI is an imagery-based, codified method for postural and movement retraining which emphasizes the self, internally generation and usage of metaphors and images whilst embodying human structure and function. Mr. Franklin teaches at universities and schools throughout the world, including the Juilliard School in New York, Rutgers University, the University of Vienna, the Royal Ballet School and the Laban Center in London. Among his trainees are Beyonce’s & Celine Dion’s world tour dance companies.
