We hope that you have found your Gokhale Method Foundations (GMF) course useful and enjoyable. The experience of our many alumni shows that ongoing practice, as well as learning new and advanced methods, make this experience even more valuable.
Following the recommendations of our alumni, we offer a program that is offered only to you – our alumni. This program gets updated over time as we discover what offerings are most effective. Our current offerings include:
Hands-on Classes (listed below)
These classes offer refresher training, as well as introduce new and advanced techniques. To ensure the quality of instruction, and to provide personalized attention, they are limited to a maximum of 8 students. Hands-on classes can be taken with any qualified Gokhale Method teacher. Registration for classes is made online. Classes can be purchased singly ($50/class) or in packages of four ($140/four classes), with a package remaining valid for 12 months from the date of purchase. Payment is made ahead of time by calling the Institute or your teacher, or on arrival at the class. Please understand that we have a two week cancellation policy for group classes.
Posture Video Lessons
Every month we provide alumni with three hi-def video lessons. Each video lesson focuses on a specific topic such as Beyond Stacksitting, Cooking With Healthy Posture, Foot Health, Yoga with Healthy Posture, Samba With Good Posture, Raising Kids to Have Good Posture and so on. The video lessons are designed to help you maintain, hone and grow your skills in various contexts. There is no restriction on when and how often you watch the video lessons in a given month.
Online Chats with Esther Gokhale
Twice a month, you are invited to a group chat with Esther: Alumni may initiate the discussion on subjects that are important to them. Any topic related to posture is welcome.
