“The Franklin Method training as outlined in this book is the most intelligent approach to learning about the workings of the body that I have ever attended. It is not just information but the experience of our design as we learn that is transforming.”

"Dynamic Alignment Through Imagery empowers readers to master embodiment through various imagery and visualization techniques. Techniques and tools are presented that are imperative for any movement educator, dancer, or athlete.
The unsurpassed artistic illustration combined with in-depth explanation makes this text a must-have resource, a truly powerful tool for teaching as well as improving movement and function. Eric Franklin is a master at creating this delicate blend of visual and textual elements to educate and inspire.
When teaching, I want to feel what I say and say what I feel. The art of delivering the feeling of movement is most powerful when a pure infusion of precise imagery occurs.
It is from this embodiment that imagery is conceived. For students and educators, this imagery will lead to the motivation that propels changes in brain, thus generating transformation in the body and ultimately transformation in life.
Since the publication of the first edition in 1996, Dynamic Alignment Through Imagery continues to hold a place on my list of top 5 transformational resources.
