Who knew that learning to walk well could change the course of one’s life? Kathleen was inspired to teach the Gokhale Method after learning how to glidewalk and experiencing welcome relief from chronic hip pain while walking. Trained as a primary care Physician Assistant (PA), Kathleen has studied and practiced health and wellness for decades. Much of her healing arts practice focused on women’s healthcare, elder care, LGBTQ matters, and community health education. Kathleen teaches both Tai Chi and Qigong and is a certified instructor of the Tai Chi For Health Institute, with multiple specialty accreditations.

Kathleen appreciates the clarity and effectiveness of the Gokhale Method, which blends intellectual, visual, and hands-on learning methods. Each student is empowered to integrate and apply this posture training into all aspects of daily life.
