Cheri Boeckmann is a Gokhale Method Foundations instructor offering classes in Lovingston, Virginia as well as other East coast locations. After teaching physical education in Australia, she traveled through Southeast Asia, India and Nepal, observing the movements and postures of traditional cultures. A physical therapist for 25 years, she presently owns a small private practice in central Virginia. Recognizing the importance of posture in pain modulation and continually frustrated with the difficulty of achieving long term changes with her patients, she contacted Esther and has not looked back. Her initial goal was to embody these techniques personally, but soon integrated them into her physical therapy practice with fabulous results. Her goals are to share Esther's work, facilitate self responsibility, reverse the current postural trends and promote preventative care.
