Yay!
8)Excerpt from my blog: I've been taking a 6-week posture class with Esther Gokhale. Her book Eight Steps to a Pain-Free Back is pretty darned compelling. I've looked at the photographs on her walls for years and it's giving me a completely different perspective on posture in our culture and other cultures. So much to relearn! She teaches posture secrets from traditional societies, including our own pre-1920's, and babies. Yes, babies. Apparently we are born doing the right thing but lose it along the way because everybody's slouching here. This is no sitting-up straight manual, though. You have to see it. The pictures say it all I'm still a newbie and getting used to it -- lots of years of incorrect posture plus back and knee and now shoulder problems -- to overcome. But I feel the difference already. The coolest part is what I've never heard talked about before -- it all starts in how you orient your pelvis. Apparently the tuck your pelvis to avoid back sway is all wrong! The evidence isn't so much convincing as it is obvious once you look at diagrams of the spine and discs. When you tuck your pelvis you're not resting on the base of the spine. It's been a century of bad posture and back problems. In traditional societies, even older people are free of back pain and disc problems, where here about 90% of us end up with some kind of back pain. Crazy, crazy, crazy. *Read more at:

Yay!  We love fans, and we love those that spread the good news through their blogs. Having recently completing the Gokhale Method Foundations [GMF] course and most recently the teacher training, I am positively convinced that Esther is right is saying we can fairly well defeat most of this nation's posture issues in the next decade. Continue telling your friends and loved onces all about this wonderful method, and convince them to complete the 6 week course as you did.  Remember, it is not our 'normal' posture that we want to support, but to go back to our ancestral origins to a 'natural' posture.  We are glad, Lisa, that you have seen such a positive difference. Keep working on it, and thanks for being a cheerleader.
