Over time, many Gokhale Method students have brought in their spouses to take classes with them. We’ve noticed many extra benefits when partners take our course together.
Primal Posture™ can become part of a couple's everyday life
Partners provide a built-in gentle and effective reminder system, so both parties think about and practice primal posture more regularly throughout the day.
Partners develop their own vocabulary and personal references for talking to each other about primal posture and movement. This serves as a rich, shared filter for people-watching—whether on a city street, on a beach, on a vacation to foreign lands, or while viewing art at the local museum.
Visiting an art museum as a couple can spark many posture discussions and inspire partners to work on their posture technique
Embracing primal posture as a couple can add spice to life’s daily rituals and routines. The Gokhale Method brings a new dimension to shared activities such as cooking, cleaning, playing tennis, taking dance lessons, and walking the dog.
Couples do influence each other's posture, for better or for worse!
The Gokhale Method also serves as welcome common ground for partners who have different ways of viewing the world. One partner may be drawn to scientific and historical aspects of primal posture, while the other is attuned to the emotional and aesthetic. These differences can provide hours of stimulating posture discussion.

Finally, partners who share the Gokhale Method experience often develop an increased confidence in aging well together, keeping bodies and minds beautiful and functional for ourselves and for the ones we love.
