“Clare Frank’s knowledge and ability to teach the fundamentals of DNS are second to none. She has helped our staff understand how to assess deficiencies, develop a strategy for correcting those deficiencies and also understand how to progress our athletes through various levels of DNS exercises.

“Clare is a unique individual with her thought process but more impor­tantly her ability to teach separates her into an elite class. I highly recom­mend her seminars.”

The nervous system establishes programs that control human locomotion, which is comprised of posture and movement. This “motor control” is largely established during the first critical years of life.

Based upon the principles of neurodevelopmental kinesiology, i.e., the neurophysiologic aspects of the maturing movement system on which the Prague School was established, the scope of clinical rehabilitation options for many of our neuro-musculoskeletal patients has been expanded. The DNS approach involves every component of the movement system (i.e., muscles, joints, discs, nerves, and soft tissue) by stimulating movement control centers in the brain through activation of ideal inborn movement stereotypes. This, in turn, helps restore the structural and postural alignment of the body’s neuro-musculoskeletal system by evoking the global motor patterns.

Global motor patterns form the foundation of human movement and represent genetically predetermined elements for uprighting. These patterns are essential for control of posture and stability of the spine—the pivotal center of the entire movement system through the life of the individual. This complex approach is exciting and “cutting-edge” as it provides a window into the complexity and plasticity of the CNS and its effect on the musculoskeletal system and vice-versa.

Participants to these courses will be introduced to these complex approach and methods. For more information on this approach, please visit

“I’d like to thank Clare Frank for guiding me through Vladimir Janda’s functional approach and Pavel Kolar’s DNS approach, which helped integrate the concepts into my own practice. They made my rehabilitation and performance training programs holistic and efficient so I can quickly assess and deliver what my athletes need. And I can count on the outcomes.

“Clare understands where participants are in their learning progression and conducts the course so no one is left behind. I highly recom­mend her as an instructor and clinician.”
