Dance is an unusually rich avenue for improving strength, flexibility, circulation, posture, mood, and connection. During this workshop, students will be introduced to Gokhale Method posture principles as they learn Brazilian, Latin, and African dance moves. This workshop is suitable for people of all ages and abilities. No dance experience is required.
Why are so many of us in pain? Why are we damaged from our normal activities (bending and lifting), exhausted from our most basic positions (sitting and standing), and uncomfortable even in our stillness (sleeping)? And why do some populations in the world enjoy pain-free, relaxed, and potent lives into old age? How can we improve our situation?
