    Esther’s work in back pain is well known in the United States, with many doctors routinely directing patients to learn her teachings, but it is time her posture principles were much more widely known in Australia as something to encourage chronic back pain patients to learn. I highly...Read more

  • Bec Thexton; ME Bank
    The two days with Michelle were full of rich information, practical lessons and a hands-on approach to improving our posture. Two weeks later and my neck pain is minimal and I'm enjoying practising my new stance. Walking seems more natural and I fondly think of Michelle's voice when I walk...Read more
  • Natasha Lynch, Carer / Support Worker
    Recently I had the pleasure of working with Michelle Ball as she taught me the Gokhale Method. Several months ago I had to resign from my job due to chronic back pain, this saddened me as I was only 39 and I thought this was the way my life was going to be. After finishing this new posture method I...Read more

    I’m an exercise physiologist and I’ve been studying exercise and movement for a long time. This is one of the most (if not the most ) useful and simple, yet profound programs I’ve encountered. I Loved it!...Read more

  • James Clayden's testimonial about Michelle Ball
    I was hesitant to do the course, as I’m not good in class situations and such. But I found Michelle went about it in a very clear way. Lots of different things came up for me during the course, physically and otherwise. I feel it has been a help in improving my posture and easing any back...Read more


Michelle Ball has always sought ways to maintain her own health and wellbeing through athletic endeavours and movement. Having studied physiology and taught fitness classes, she saw what focused movement could do for her students.

She is a massage therapist and body worker devoted to helping people relieve pain and tension in their bodies. However, in seeing clients lose the ability to move freely and perform the activities they loved, she wanted to help self-empower them more on a daily basis. In her search, Michelle discovered the book "8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back." The Gokhale Method® was a revelation and a solution. It offered a practical, complementary way to help her clients restore their mobility and natural alignment while doing everyday tasks. This is what led Michelle to train with Esther Gokhale in California. 

Michelle is a qualified Gokhale Method® Teacher offering regular private and group lessons in North Queensland. She also regularly travel teaches on the Mainland in AUS.  If you can put a group of 8 people together, she will come to you. Smaller groups will be considered if you travel to North Qld, where Michelle is located.
