Event Description

(re)-Learn Primal Posture™

In this workshop, you’ll be introduced to the why and the how of the Gokhale Method. Every workshop is different, in order to best address the attendees’ needs. Workshops often begin by showing you how to stretchsit. This is a way of sitting that puts your back in gentle traction, easing compression in your spine and stretching out tight or spasmed back muscles.

Other techniques taught in this workshop will begin to help you:

  • Reduce or eliminate back, neck, muscle and joint pain
  • Prevent muscle and joint degeneration and injury
  • Increase your energy, stamina, and flexibility
  • Reduce stress and improve your appearance


Effects are often immediate and last a lifetime.



“Several months ago, when I first heard about the Gokhale Method from a friend who is an occupational therapist, I considered taking one of the free classes to get a better idea of what it entailed. However, I kept putting it off thinking that I should wait until my back felt better. After all, how was I going to sit for an hour and a half in a classroom when I couldn’t even sit 10 minutes in my own home due to severe sciatica pain? Finally I decided to attend one of the free classes thinking that I would just stand in the back of the room if the pain became too intolerable. The instructor started us out by teaching the stretchsitting technique which, to my great surprise, was very comfortable for my back and leg. Imagine my amazement when I realized that I had sat pain-free for 45 minutes! Now I am taking the course learning new positions for walking, lying, standing, bending, and more. The entire Method has been a true revelation, and I shall be using it for the rest of my life to promote good back health. I only wish I hadn't waited so long to take that free class!”

As a nationally award-winning Licensed Massage Therapist, Rachel’s understanding of anatomy and physiology enable her to clearly instruct her Gokhale Method students with an understanding of how their muscles and bones work to realign​ their posture. As a CranioSacral Therapist, Rachel also recognizes that our minds and our bodies are not separate, but are actually a unified whole. She understands that by addressing the body with the Gokhale Method, we are likewise addressing our minds. After obtaining better posture, regaining range of motion, and reducing or eliminating pain, many people using the Gokhale Method find that they approach life with greater confidence and ease.
 
But static good posture alone is not the whole picture. Good posture must extend to how we move and use our bodies. Rachel has been able to personally transform some of her movement limitations by using the Gokhale Method. Dance has been a passion of Rachel’s for decades; however, a shoulder condition came to significantly restrict her ability to go dancing. After learning and applying the Gokhale Method for herself, she is now back out on the dancefloor. Similarly, an imbalance in muscle strength and movement application caused excruciating knee pain whenever Rachel tried to run. The Gokhale Method has adjusted her body to where she is now, for the first time in her life, enjoying running without any knee pain.
 
Rachel views health as a continual journey of investigation, discovery and understanding. Her degree in Anthropology and extensive travels through more than​ 20 countries enables Rachel to see the inherent value of the Gokhale Method’s core elements: natural movement and primal posture. She fully agrees that balanced, functional posture and healthy movement, still used in various traditional societies​, are our human birthright — a birthright​ she hopes to help everyone ​regain.
