The Gokhale Method uses kinesthetic, visual, intellectual, aesthetic, and technological cues to gently guide students back to the way they moved when they were children—the same way their hunter gatherer ancestors moved. Gokhale Method teacher training teaches the craft of restoring primal architecture and movement patterns. Using high-touch and high-tech tools, teachers guide their students in relearning the daily movements of life. By mastering powerful, basic techniques such as stretchsitting, stacksitting, stretchlying, tallstanding, hip-hinging and glidewalking, Gokhale-trained teachers are able to help their students get to the postural root of most back, neck, hip, knee, foot, and shoulder problems. Through observation and hands-on experience with real cases, study of relevant anatomy, and instruction in use of databases, apps, and class blogs, teachers learn to use both ancient wisdom and state-of-the-art technology to facilitate life-changing experiences. They learn to be eloquent with their hands, perceptive with their eyes, and compelling with their voices. When they graduate, Gokhale Method teachers are proficient in presenting introductory classes, doing initial consultations, and teaching the six-lesson Gokhale Method Foundations course to small groups and individual students.
