Event Description

(re)-Learn Primal Posture™

Join Robyn Penwell for a free, 1-hour workshop to learn to live pain-free.

In this workshop, you’ll start to learn the why and the how of the Gokhale Method. Many workshops begin by showing you how to stretchsit. This is a way of sitting back in a seat and giving yourself gentle traction, which eases compression in your spine and stretches out tight or spasming back muscles.

In this short amount of time, you will be introduced to techniques which will allow you to:

  • 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.

Your Teacher

Robyn Penwell

Robyn Penwell, M.S. teaches Fitness & Wellness classes in the Kinesiology departments at Sacramento State University and American River College in Sacramento, California. Her proficiencies include Tennis, Yoga, Core Training, Stretching, Conditioning, Fitness and Weight Control, and several other fitness and sport courses. Her college courses emphasize the pursuit of high quality of life through personal dedication, education, and personal enrichment.

Robyn was drawn to Gokhale Method in part because it satisfies her demand for logical, scientific, effective techniques. She was also struck by the use of beautiful images from non-industrial societies, as well as ancient sculptures and figure paintings from many periods, to illustrate natural posture traditions. How could a method that seeks to alleviate pain incorporate so much humanity, dignity, and culture? From a psychological and educational standpoint she believes this method is very rich and stands to help a lot of students. It is truly a joy to teach.

Robyn teaches group and private courses in Sacramento and travel teaches during college breaks.
