Reducing Back Pain with the Gokhale Method

Date: Friday, July 26, 2019

Time: 7:30-8:30 pm

Fee: Free

Course Description

Join Lang Liu for a free, 1-hour workshop to learn to live pain-free. In this workshop, you’ll start to learn the why and the how of the Gokhale Method. Many workshops begin by showing you how to stretchsit. This is a way of sitting back in a seat and giving yourself gentle traction, which eases compression in your spine and stretches out tight or spasming back muscles. In this short amount of time, you will be introduced to techniques which will allow you to:

  • Reduce or eliminate back, neck, muscle and joint pain

  • Prevent muscle and joint degeneration and injury

  • Increase your energy, stamina, and flexibility

  • Reduce stress and improve your appearance

Effects are often immediate and last a lifetime.


Lang Maria Liu is a martial artist, dancer and healer. She has been teaching Brazilian capoeira for almost twenty years and is a passionate advocate of this transformative art form. In her thirties, Lang discovered that she had a right-hip condition (FAI) that limited her range of motion and created pain patterns in her body. Rather than give in to the doctors' hasty prognoses that she would need a hip replacement within ten years and should stop her active lifestyle, Lang embarked on a journey to Asia in search of healing. During the two years that she spent in an osteopathic clinic in India, she learned a dynamic stretching technique from north-eastern India. When she stumbled upon Esther Gokhale’s book, “Eight Steps to a Pain Free Back”, she knew that she had found a crucial piece of the puzzle. A passionate advocate of healthy living and the environment, Lang bases her approach on the mind-body connection, eager to help others live more joyful and free lives, and offers Gokhale Method Foundation courses in Toronto, Canada.
