    I'm actually single. That was a mistake.
    I like to work in my garden, but I stop after 20-40 minutes because then my back starts hurting.

    Back pain limits daily activities that I enjoy and could impact my ability to travel and age gracefully.

    I've also been diagnosed with fibromyalgia

    I have neuropathy in the left foot caused by lumbar spine degeneration. My left hip and thigh area were numb due to sitting incorrectly while studying long hours. The pain in my left leg was unbearable and I was one week away from signing up for back surgery when I saw an email for Gokhale free workshop on gardening. I attended the workshop on Zoom (during Covid pandemic) and my life trajectory was changed from back surgery to The Gokhale Method which taught me what I had been looking for from chiropractors and doctors for years. How to stand, sleep, sit, walk, bend, lift, etc. to not only avoid pain but to HEAL certain parts of my body that had been damaged throughout my life by sitting, standing, walking incorrectly. I am 69 now and can walk, garden, bend down, carry up to 20 lbs and live life again knowing that the lessons I have learned from Gokhale Method will keep me strong and healthy throughout my life.
