  • April 2019 Group Testimonial for Lori Szalay, "This is a great class!"


Lori has been teaching and empowering people in the wellness industry for 25+ years as a group fitness instructor, personal trainer and Gokhale Method teacher. Seeing students experience life changing effects by learning the Gokhale Method is the most rewarding aspect of being a teacher. It’s amazing how simple postural modifications can make such a difference and allow you to live a healthy, happy and pain free life!

After undergoing a lumbar fusion, Lori was in search for a solution to help manage her lower back pain so she could get back to her active lifestyle.  She was thrilled to discover the Gokhale Method.  After taking the Foundations Course and implementing the techniques into her life she noticed many positive changes with her body…no lower back pain, sleeping better, breathing better, being able to sit and get up without stiffness or pain, pain-free bending, more energy, walking better and faster, looking leaner/taller and overall feeling healthier.    

As a fitness trainer over the years Lori has worked with many people who suffer from chronic back, neck, shoulder, knee, foot and hip pain.  Through exercise many of her clients found relief but never got to the root of the problem; therefore, still suffered from their pain.  After discovering the Gokhale Method, Lori realized that implementing postural changes into your life can help eliminate pain and will lead to improvements to one’s overall state of being, both physically and mentally.  Because of the life changing effects she experienced with The Gokhale Method she decided to become a teacher to help others on their journey to a pain-free life.  The Gokhale Method can help you too!
