An Initial Consultation is a good place to begin your posture journey, especially if you have a complex history of musculoskeletal or health problems. You will receive a comprehensive evaluation of your current posture and how it relates to problems you may be having, a projection of what structural changes are possible, and some key ideas and practices to help you improve your structure immediately and long-term.
Learning the Gokhale Method via a Private One-on-One Foundations Course allows for more flexibility in scheduling, permits your teacher to focus on you for the entire time, and allows for more privacy. Learn the basics of Primal Posture™ and how to apply this knowledge in situations particular to your life. The one-on-one course accommodates people with mild to severe levels of pain, as well as people seeking to improve well-being.
A Follow-up Consultation is for Gokhale Method Foundations class alumni members who would like to revisit some topics in a personalized setting. You will again receive a comprehensive evaluation of your current posture and how it relates to problems you may be having, a projection of what structural changes are possible as you practice, and some information on where to focus your efforts to help you improve your structure immediately and long-term.
Sheelagh has had a life-long interest in posture and gravitated toward history and anthropology at the University of Victoria where she completed her BA in History. After a year travelling, she returned to Canada to complete the 3,000 hour Massage Therapy Programme in Victoria, BC. At massage therapy college, she was taught how to assess posture but not taught how to help her patients correct it. After years of patients returning with the same posture-related complaints, she discovered the Gokhale Method by chance and was immediately struck by its anthropological and historical perspective and its eloquence and simplicity.
Sheelagh especially appreciates the hands-on approach and small class size that give students one on one attention and the tools to easily incorporate the 8 steps into their bodies and improve the quality of their lives. Sheelagh is excited to offer classes in beautiful British Columbia but would also consider venturing further afield.
