Franklin Method

Relax Your Shoulders, Liberate Your Neck
with Damian McCann

Join Damian for this in-depth immersion into the Franklin Method – a brilliant approach to anatomical embodiment that improves the way our bodies function not just in exercise but in everyday life, creating a peaceful mind & healthy body.

The focus of this Immersion is on the Shoulders, Neck and related organs. If you experience tense shoulders, a stiff neck or you just want to learn about how the shoulders are designed to move – then this immersion is for you. Learn imagery, touch and simple movement exercises to lengthen and balance shoulder and neck musculature. Gain insight into how the shoulder developed from a four-legged support situation through brachiation into free suspension. Experience how the design of the shoulder girdle suspends it from the ribcage. Learn how to melt away tension and associated mental anxiety. Let your shoulders and neck become a place of ease and peace.

You will also learn to use Franklin balls and elastic bands to create smooth joint action. These simple and effective ball and band exercises will incorporate all you have learned, allowing you to experience what healthy shoulder movement can truly be and how to apply it to every aspect of life, including the practice or teaching of any movement technique.

By the conclusion of this Immersion you will be on your way to experiencing suspended, free and easy shoulders and the proper placement of related organs to support this freedom and ease.
