Maya is very kind and calm--she immediately made me feel at ease. I was initially skeptical that I could change my walking gait or that it would make a difference but with Maya's guidance, I found that I could indeed change it and that it felt great. I am amazed at how tall and strong I feel when I glidewalk.

While the principles of good posture are disarmingly simple, Esther Gokhale includes a wealth of pertinent detail to guide users through the eight lessons.
