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!”

“Having lived 12+ years with chronic lower back pain, I regained hope for finding a cure through attending a Gokhale Method free webinar.”

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 on the East Coast of Tasmania. She also regularly travel teaches on the Mainland in AU and NZ.  If you can put a group of 8 people together, she will come to you. Smaller groups will be considered if you travel to St Helens Tasmania, where Michelle is located.
