Counteract the Negative Effects of Sitting

A Talk with Esther Gokhale & Danny Dreyer

See the video and offer from Gokhale Method below.

I met Esther Gokhale in 2018 when I was teaching at the Kripalu Yoga Center. When I learned what the Gokhale Method was all about, I realized there is a deep connection between what she is teaching her students and what we teach in ChiWalking and ChiRunning.

We decided to do a video together talking about one aspect of posture in daily life that affects us all: sitting. In our talk, we show how sitting is responsible for many of the ills that show up in our bodies as we age.

We also both firmly believe that these can be prevented and reversed when we pay attention to our posture– when sitting as well as when we’re moving around in our daily lives. The importance of posture cannot be overstated because the quality of almost every action we do is dependent on a combination of the proper alignment and balanced movement of our body.

A Little About the Gokhale Method

The Gokhale Method is an ecosystem of posture and movement re-education which uses healthy posture and movement to help you restore your structural integrity and regain a pain-free life. Created by founder and CEO Esther Gokhale (GO-clay), the Gokhale Method draws upon the ancient body-wisdom passed down through non-industrialized cultures to repattern the way we sit, stand, walk, lift, bend, and sleep. Their goal is a world without back pain. Most students find relief following the first lesson — and without time-consuming exercises or special equipment. Esther’s book 8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back has sold over 150,000 copies worldwide and has been translated into 10 languages. Qualified Gokhale Method teachers offer instruction around the globe.
