Finding joy in movement is Eric Franklin's goal in presenting a different way to think about every  part of your  body, from head to feet by using imagery in your daily life -whether at the gym, in the office, walking, on an airplane or doing housework. Our organs and muscles are shown as interrelated so that you understand how they work together to create a whole and health body. Maximum benefit  is obtained  through easy workout sequences that combine exercise and imagery.

Franklin shows how you can achieve a sense of well-bieng throughout the entire body by building mental awareness, expanding your kinesthetic sense, overcoming stiffness and becoming more flexible, and experiencing relaxation from tension and stress.
