Required text: 8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back.

“In six sessions I felt transformed. The approach is stunningly simple and confers immediate results. I wholeheartedly endorse this program.”

        - Deirdre Stegman, M.D. Internal Medicine, Palo Alto Medical Foundation

“Every year tens of thousands of patients undergo major back surgery without any benefit. By using the novel techniques of the Gokhale Method, many of these patients can avoid such needless and expensive medical procedures and quickly return to a pain-free life.”

        - John R. Adler, Neurosurgeon, Stanford University Medical Clinic, Stanford, CA

"Although stunningly simple, the Gokhale Method™ turns much of conventional wisdom about pain and posture on its head. Each session of the course gave immediate results and I now look forward to many years of a healthy neck and back."

        - Joan Baez, folk singer and activist, Woodside, CA

As part of this class, we will practice sleeping positions. Please bring something comfortable to lay on such as a yoga mat and three pillows to class. The pillows you use for sleeping or ones similar to them is best.

Lisa has a zest for life with many varied interests, loves teaching the Gokhale Method, and finds it a great joy to support others in getting the most out of life through learning healthy posture and movement. Learning this elegant, simple method created a huge change in Lisa’s own life: “I was introduced to the Gokhale Method by my acupuncturist, who shared a link to the how-to video for stretchlying on the back. I experienced so much improvement from a few minutes a night of stretchlying that I wanted to learn more and enrolled in a Gokhale Method Foundations Course.”
