WHAT IS PILATES?

Over a span of 60 years, Joseph Pilates developed a system of movement and strength-training exercises that uniformly develop all muscles of the body to create greater flexibility and stamina and to reduce or alleviate chronic pain. 

 

Using specialized spring-loaded equipment that he originally designed, Pilates offers resistance for muscular strengthening while balancing muscular force at the joint. It stimulates circulation through facilitating muscular flexibility, joint range of motion and proper musculoskeletal alignment.

FRANKLIN METHOD

WHAT IS THE FRANKLIN METHOD?

Quoted by Eric Franklin: 

 

"The Franklin Method activates body and mind function through the use of imagery, experiential anatomy and reconditioning movement to improve function. It maximizes neuroplasticity to relearn body posture and movements by practicing movement with activation of unused musculature. The principal goals are how to obtain dynamic body alignment and how to move the body with maximum efficiency.  In every moment, the ideal combination of limbsjointsgravity, moving parts, connective tissue, and muscles must be found and directed by the brain and nervous system by help of appropriate imagery."

The method is taught all over the world, including the Universities of ViennaCologneKarlsruhe, The Boston Conservatory and the Juilliard School in New York City. It is recognized by health providers in Switzerland and courses are regularly offered at dance, Pilates, yoga and physiotherapy conferences.
