Posture and Walking techtnique

Copied from the online seminar d.d. 2020-02-31 So talking about hunter-gatherers, I know that walking is also a very important aspect of your Gokhale method. I learned about the glide walking via your materials (YouTube etc.) how does this relate to posture and maintenance and what are important aspects to take into account when walking (can’t really find clear examples of this walking technique…) Thanks a lot! :D

Dear reader,

Thanks for your interest in the Gokhale Method. Glidewalking is a very important part of our foundational work in reteaching people how to do all the basic movements and postures of daily life in a healthy way that our ancestors and all young children practice. Walking is our basic mode of moving ourselves around- something we do constantly throughout our lives. When walking you begin with good tall standing posture, pelvis anteverted, ribs anchored, feet in kidney bean shape, shoulders back in a relaxed way, back of the neck lengthened and chin relaxed down. Begin walking by squeezing the gluteus medius muscles on the right side of the body and using that energy to push your right heel into the floor; this push against the ground propels you forward. You alternate squeezing gluteus muscles on one side of the body and then the other to push alternating heels into the floor to move forward, similar to a movement in ice skating, keeping the rest of your body in good tall standing posture. Weight goes completely from one leg to the other, so one side is always resting while the other side works. Your gluteus muscles also allow you to control the softness of your landing. To learn more, you can purchase the book 8 Steps to a Pain-free Back, and/or take a free Introductory Gokhale workshop now being offered online.

Good luck.
