    What I like and trust most of all about the Gokhale Method is that it is about un-learning what is not natural (acquired poor posture), and learning how to return to what is natural and healthy. I wish I had discovered it years ago, but I am very excited to hear Esther say that we can improve our back health (even after decades of causing damage from poor posture and from aging.) I took the foundations class and now am enrolled in the continuing education offerings program that is available upon completion of that course. I am discovering that there is so much more going on in the Gokhale Method than helping my back to be pain free. It's about caring for my entire body in a beautiful and joyful way. Every part of us is connected and every part of us affects our back. It requires a real interest in taking responsibility for one's own health. It requires some effort but it's fun and happy effort. Thank you Esther! I am grateful because for the first time I am hopeful that I am not going to end up like my parents who suffered and suffer from severe back pain on a daily basis. I have suffered from intermittent lower back pain for decades but not any more. My back is feeling GREAT now that I am learning and practicing the Gokhale Method.

    I am limited to doing only what activities are necessary and physical therapy. Seeking an alternative to back and neck surgery for a long term surgery, but alternatives are highly cost prohibitive.
    Recently have had steroid and cortisone injections in lower back and neck. Both reduced pain significantly and very pleased with the results thus far. Legs at this point seemed to be the larger pain issue. Will be pursuing treatment for it.

    I am not able to do simple chores. I cannot vacuum. I cant do simple hygiene tasks without help. I have to go to my
    Mothers house to take a shower because I cant get in our tub without hurting myself. It affects every area of my life. I feel less of a person. I cant even be a good mother to my children or be a good wife to my husband
    I often feel like I would be better off dead than this non life I am living. I am worth more dear than alive....insurance. I am not suicidal or have a plan. Just a thought that entered my head.
