Elizabeth has been studying the body for several years as both an artist and a massage therapist. Her eye for grace in the human form is what first attracted her to the Gokhale Method. Though her interest in the method was initially aesthetic and intellectual, the class proved to be hugely useful in many areas of her life. When Elizabeth began to learn the method, she was starting to work as a massage therapist and struggling to find the stamina to do enough massages to support herself. The Gokhale Method helped her to work more efficiently so she could work longer hours without fatigue. The postural changes also gave an unexpected but powerful feeling of sturdiness and strength in her body.
