FRANKLIN BALL ONLINE CERTIFICATION WORKSHOP

Leave this training knowing exactly how to use Franklin Balls, how to help your riders and become certified to teach Franklin Ball lessons.

Do you struggle to try and get your riders to sit deeper, move better, have good posture and ideal alignment?

Often when riders start using Franklin Balls, they don’t know where or how to begin. They find themselves trying to figure things out with trial and error. They soon notice that the balls are effective! But they have no idea of the next level benefits that can be had by learning a specific step by step system for using them. 

During this training, we’ll take the guess work out of riding with Franklin Balls. We’ll show you how our scientifically proven method (with published research) creates lasting positive change in riders and the partnership with their horse.

• FEEL MORE SUPPLE IN YOUR SEAT SO YOU CAN DIRECT YOUR HORSE MORE EFFECTIVELY
• RELEASE LONG-HELD TENSION SO YOU CAN GIVE AIDS INTUITIVELY AND WITH EASE
• USE PROPRIOCEPTION TO NATURALLY SYNC UP WITH YOUR HORSE
• BECOME MORE AWARE OF YOUR BODY SO YOU CAN SELF-CORRECT MISALIGNMENTS
• MASTER YOUR MINDSET SO YOU FEEL RELAXED AND FOCUSED

Many equestrians and riding instructors use balls to improve their posture, movement, and cues. Very few are certified in Franklin® Balls, which means most riders and teachers are missing out on 75% of the benefits of using balls. Expand your toolkit by learning Franklin Method® philosophy, embodied function, and Dynamic Neuro-cognitive Imagery™. If you’re already using the balls, your results are going to multiply. If you’ve never tried them, you’ll reach a whole new level of potential in yourself and your horse.

SIMPLY SITTING ON THE BALLS ONLY GIVES YOU A FRACTION OF THEIR BENEFITS. WITHOUT IMAGERY AND EMBODIED FUNCTION, BALLWORK WILL NOT CREATE ANY LASTING CHANGE. SITTING ON THEM MIGHT TEMPORARILY RELEASE A LITTLE TIGHTNESS, BUT WITHOUT THE STEP BY STEP FRANKLIN METHOD® SYSTEM OLD PATTERNS WILL QUICKLY RETURN.

THIS WORKSHOP IS COMPRISED OF THE
UNIQUE FRANKLIN METHOD® APPROACH:

DYNAMIC NEURO-COGNITIVE IMAGERY™ 

This is where you learn positive imagery in relation to your anatomy. It’s not just imagery or visualization, it’s the imagery combined with dynamic movement and embodiment that makes this mind body process unique. 

There are 1000s of images in the Franklin Method® and it’s always growing new approaches and new scientific studies are published.

 

ANATOMICAL EMBODIED FUNCTION

When we move our bodies in alignment with our anatomy, that’s embodied function. We want the map of our body that we have in our brain to match what is anatomically correct. When the map is more accurate, you will move in a much more functional and healthy way with your horse.

PROPRIOCEPTION

Proprioception is your ability to physically sense what’s going on in your own body, and what’s going on for your horse. It’s also the ability for your nervous system to produce and coordinate movement. Franklin Method® teaches simple exercises and images to wake up proprioception and get your “antenna” receiving all the information that’s available to you.

Franklin Method® teaches simple processes and images to work with the nervous system and create changes in a rider’s movement that are both immediate and lasting.

 

DO YOU WISH YOU COULD COMMUNICATE SEAMLESSLY WITH YOUR HORSE MORE CONSISTENTLY, AND IN DOING SO, IMPROVE YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR HORSE AND YOUR OVERALL PERFORMANCE?

FRANKLIN METHOD® (FM) IS A SCIENTIFICALLY-PROVEN MIND-BODY MOVEMENT SYSTEM THAT BLENDS EMBODIED FUNCTION AND DYNAMIC NEURO-COGNITIVE IMAGERY™.

ONCE YOUR BODY HAS THE EXPERIENCE OF BEING SOFT AND SUPPLE, THAT WILL BECOME YOUR NATURAL, EFFORTLESS STATE. IF YOU NEVER GIVE YOUR BODY THE EXPERIENCE OF WHAT THAT’S LIKE, YOU CAN’T REACH YOUR OPTIMAL STATE, AND YOU’LL STAY STUCK IN THE SUBOPTIMAL PATTERNS YOU’VE BEEN PRACTICING FOR A LONG TIME.

WHY TAKE THIS CERTIFICATION WORKSHOP?

If you’re an instructor, this is the training that will set you apart from other trainers in your field by becoming certified to offer Franklin Ball lessons.

Learn how to use Franklin Balls so you can know with absolute clarity and confidence how to best help your riders move more efficiently.

Using Franklin Balls makes your job as a coach much easier because you can quickly and effectively get your riders into better alignment creating more harmonious movement with their horse. You’ll be able to achieve greater results for your riders with less effort.

No matter how good your cues are, if your students don’t have accurate body awareness and sharp focus, they can’t make the necessary corrections. Take this certification to expand your skill set, transform your teaching style and guide your students to self correct.

This training is the first tier of or Franklin Method Equestrian certification process. In the Franklin Ball Certification, we not only teach you how to use Franklin Balls, but show you how to use them in conjunction with the Franklin Method® principles.

Graduates of this training will reach the first tier of our training path and become “Franklin Ball Certified” with official accreditation.

Space in this online training will be limited so that we can provide the best possible experience for the group of students. The training will be interactive, collaborative and there will be time for individual questions, feedback and coaching.

Led by Franklin Method® Faculty Alysen Starko-Bowes. Participants will graduate with a Franklin Method Equestrian “Franklin Ball Certified” accreditation.
