Event Description

(re)-Learn Primal Posture™

Join Margaret Haight 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

Margaret Haight

Margaret Haight began studying Yoga in 1989 and has been practicing and teaching Yoga ever since. A native New Yorker, Margaret grew up in Manhattan studying art. A visiting friend from San Francisco adventitiously mentioned the Gokhale Method. Margaret recognized it as a wonderful shortcut to good posture, wholly beneficial and accessible. Margaret has always been especially interested in posture, continually correcting her Yoga students, her family's posture and her own as well. Within her Yoga practice the action of anteversion was imperative for easeful backbends. The Gokhale Method pinpoints and establishes the vital relationship between these actions. Margaret is delighted that the Gokhale Method accords with fine points of Yoga knowledge, extends fully and far into everyday activities, and is supported by wide research, all carefully articulated in print. Margaret offers Gokhale Method courses primarily in the New York metropolitan area, and also Rhode Island and New England.
