8 step testimonial

"8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back is a pleasure to read and a godsend to use. The lessons are easily accessible to anyone with an hour to spare. The account of why people in modern industrial society experience chronic lower-back pain is fascinating in its own right. The photographs of people sitting, standing, and lifting in a pre-industrial world are marvelously instructive and a joy to behold. While the principles of good posture are disarmingly simple, Esther Gokhale includes a wealth of pertinent detail to guide users through the eight lessons.

Free Classes

"In the free class, the instructor started us out stretchsitting which was very comfortable for my back and leg. I was amazed that I could sit pain-free for 45 minutes! The entire method has been a true revelation and I shall be using it for the rest of my life. I only wish I hadn't waited so long to take that free class!"

The class improved my lower back pain as well as reshaped my body to a healthier position. I also like the abdominal exercises. Maya was an excellent teacher, enthusiastically helping people in the class. I definitely have a new outlook on posture. Thanks a lot, Maya.
