Franklin Method Dance Conditioning is practiced by dancers from Julliard to the Royal Ballet School to elicit lasting and rapid improvement to their balance, flexibility and strength by developing the body’s natural strategies for stabilization through dynamic alignment, as opposed to tension.
Classes include brief demonstrations of anatomy and bio-mechanics using anatomical models and common objects to create vivid and accurate images of what bones and muscles do in movement. Exercises for embodying one’s bio-function can include ball rolling, elastic band exercises, self-massage, mental simulation of movement (MSM), and movements from ballet and yoga. Embodying the anatomy improves physical awareness, proprioception and consequently function. Though the workshop focuses on many muscle and joint overuse symptoms that dancers commonly experience the workshop content can be applied to any form of exercise and is suitable for any level of fitness. Elastic bands, balls and other props provided.
The workshop will cover the following topics:
- Strong, Supple and Springy Spine
- Psoas-Activating Your Inner Core
- Relax Your Neck, Liberate Your Shoulders
- The Art & Joy of Diaphragmatic Breathing
Hope to see you there!
Sundays : July 21, July 28, and August 4

Essential Oils to Heal, Prevent, Relax & Restore
with Robert Berryman
Sunday, November 20, 2-4 pm
Most of us know that essential oils offer an array of wonderful natural aromas; but did you know they are also powerful plant medicines that can be used for treating almost all physiological body systems? Scientific studies at hospitals and universities around the world have shown that essential oils contain therapeutic properties, including analgesic, antibacterial, antiseptic anti-infectious, anti-inflammative, antiviral, decongestant, nerve sedative, digestive stimulant, and so on.
The focus of this class is the “First Aid Kit,” which contains five of the most common and most versatile essential oils -‐ Eucalyptus, Lavender, Lemon, Peppermint and Tea Tree. The First Aid Kit is designed for home and travel and is useful for treating the symptoms of minor common ailments such as colds, indigestion, stress, anxiety, insect bites, and much more. This class will show you how to use essential oils effectively and safely for health and beauty.
The workshop is led by Robert Berryman, a certified aromatherapist and owner of Zyanya Aromatherapy of Echo Park. For the past 15 years, Robert has created formulations for Burke Williams Spa, Murad Spa, Pritikin Spa, as well as individuals and a host of aromatic businesses.
