Every day is a new day in which to create a well body, heart and mind. I believe we all have the power to heal, and that small changes and actions, made repeatedly over time, will provide for a healthier state of being. The Franklin Method offers an illuminated road map to the body, so we can, with our minds, explore our own geography. Practicing embodiment allows one to commit to creating good health. What I love about this practice is that I can do it anywhere and anytime, in the grocery store and at home, in a dance or fitness class, even typing right now, right here. This practice gives me hope, power and joy. Helping others see and connect to their marvelous bodies and selves is why I teach.
Julia Wyncoll is a movement educator whose career spans over twenty-five years. Julia began moving as a modern dancer, and studied Kinesiology and Anatomy throughout her B.F.A. at York University and M.F.A. studies at Arizona State University. It was at A.S.U. that she worked with Pamela Matt, a student of imagery pioneer Barbara Clark. Julia embraces the idea of marrying the science of the body with the internal, artistic work of creating imagery – and she fell in love with the ease the practice created in her movement. She maintained an injury-free career as a dancer and has been working to help others move while respecting the body ever since.
Julia has been teaching Pilates for over twenty years and owns and directs Inhabit Pilates and Movement. As part of her continuing education, Julia started taking courses in the Franklin Method in 2008. A multitude of courses and teacher trainings later, she is a Franklin Method Level 2 educator. Julia has worked closely with both Eric Franklin and Morten Dithmer, having brought them to Canada for teacher trainings and workshops. She has been selected to train as faculty for the FM and is currently in that process.
As a Franklin Method teacher, Julia is truly able to act as a movement educator. The FM is accessible across disciplines and applicable to all. Creating a foundation of learning that is anchored in how the body is designed to move, allows us to work in the realm where we discover the innate facts of the body’s movement relationships. Workshops focus on Eric Franklin’s bone rhythms and layer in muscle and fascial connections to create an image of a body that is bound by tensegrity, and alive with spirals.
Julia directs and teaches at Inhabit Pilates and Movement. If you’d like to work with her there, please visit the Inhabit Pilates website to see times and types of classes offered.
