Event Description

(re)-Learn Primal Posture™

Join John Carter 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

John Carter

 John is an experienced yoga teacher and practitioner, with a scientific background in psychology and IT. After 20 years of chronic, seemingly intractable back pain, he discovered the Gokhale Method and travelled to India to observe the Primal Posture of local, working people – the founding principle of the method. 

Having realised the profound healing qualities of the method for his own back pain, John is inspired as a Gokhale Method teacher to share this freedom. He is experienced in both one-to-one and group workshops and takes great pleasure in guiding his students through their own healing processes. 'Even travelling in a car can become a positive healing experience!' he says. 'I have seen students with long-standing, chronic problems shift away from a life of pain and disadvantage, to one in which their bodies are pain-free, functional and happy again. It's a real honour and a joy to be a part of this transformation.'
