    Not only was my persistent nine-month-long pain from a pinched nerve relieved after my two-month practice of the Gokhale Foundations Course with Doreen, but my chiropractor noticed that my degenerated disc in the lumbar region showed increased height on comparative x-rays!

    I want to share my experience with others who might be weighing the pros and cons of private online vs. group or private in-person classes.

Since 1996, Doreen has been an acupuncturist and NeuroModulation practitioner, helping people improve their health and quality of life. The Gokhale Method immediately captivated her.  "It's such a simple, practical way to help us feel at home again in our bodies," she says. "Instead of ignoring the body until it starts to hurt, now we can relearn our natural posture and stay active for years to come, preventing pain and injury."

Doreen provides a welcoming, relaxed atmosphere in her classes, fitting the lessons to the students’ needs.  By learning to use healthy posture in everything they do, students can enjoy lifelong benefits.

A part of the Madison community for over 30 years, Doreen is an avid student of the healing arts, dance and yoga, as well as a member of the local Threshold Choir chapter.
