About this workshop

The newest Gokhale Method offering, the Pop-up Course is earning high praise from participants. Each Pop-up Course is taught by two qualified Gokhale Method teachers and is limited to 20 participants to allow for plenty of hands-on coaching. It includes one day of group instruction. All participants use our PostureTracker™ wearable to get real-time feedback while learning improved ways of sitting, standing, bending, lifting, walking, and exercising. Each participant receives a PDF copy of 8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back, a streamed copy of our DVD Back Pain: The Primal Posture™ Solution, and a Stretchsit® Cushion and a 1 year membership to the Online University.

Please note that we require all Pop-up Course participants to be vaccinated, and will be requesting a copy of your vaccination card for our records. Masks are recommended throughout the campus.

        - Dolores F. Kincaid, Registrar, Cantor Arts Center

“The Gokhale Method Pop-up Course has been a game changer for me. After 15 years of chronic pain I did not expect this big of an impact. I am so grateful to learn how to work with my body instead of against it.”
