Event Description

(re)-Learn Primal Posture™

Join Rachel Margaret 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.

Rachel spent a great deal of time skiing and ski racing while growing up between Tasmania, Australia and Colorado, USA. In her teenage years, Rachel’s  mother trained to become a Feldenkrais practitioner. Attending many Feldenkrais classes led Rachel to enjoy a playful attitude toward movement and body awareness. Over the years, Rachel has taught a variety of outdoor activities (skiing, whitewater rafting, and sea kayaking), before settling and raising a family in Wellington, New Zealand.

Rachel endured five years of back pain in her forties which led her to discover how difficult it can be to successfully treat back pain. She was surprised to learn that doctors think of back pain as “normal” these days. Finding the Gokhale Method has been transformational: it has given Rachel clarity in knowing how to sit, stand, and move in ways that help the body rather than hurt it. She was surprised there were no Gokhale Method teachers in New Zealand, and was inspired to train as a teacher to help more people move out of pain and change their lives.
