Glad you are ready to make the change!

First, you click above to pay to pay as payment is required in full by March 1, 2024. You will be asked to fill out some essential information. Once we know you are registered, Dr. Vera Baziuk or Sigrun Franzen will reach out to you to obtain information needed both for Gokhale Method and traveling aboard Celebrity Cruises.

We want to make sure all participants have completed the initial consultation prior to the commencement of the foundations course.

A Gokhale Method Initial Consultation is the first essential first step in the Gokhale Method. Once you register and pay, we will send you the initial Gokhale Method intake form that will be required to be filled out prior to your scheduled appointment.

The initial consultation is a 45-minute one-on-one session, where the teacher makes a very detailed assessment of your individual, unique posture. You’ll have the opportunity to provide your full health history, allowing the teachers to know, in advance, whether you’ve had surgeries, what sort of medication you may be taking, whether you play a lot of tennis, or lift small children, etc.—all things that will help the teacher adapt the learning to your individual body.

We will take before pictures and observe the creases on your clothing and comment how the shape of your spine is compared to an ideal shape of spine. We’ll note things like:

  • What direction your pelvis is tilting
  • What direction your knees and feet are pointing,
  • how externally rotated your arms are,
  • the angle of the line between the middle of your ear and the tip of your nose,
  • the shape and relative angles of all your vertebrae.

We will also use the Spine Tracker as part of your assessment. These are wearable posture sensors that stick on your back with medical tape and connect via bluetooth to a phone, tablet, or computer and show you the shape of your spine in real-time. The Spine Tracker provides insights into your movement patterns that are difficult to see otherwise.

Once we have a really good grasp of your particular posture puzzle, we’ll explain how the way you’re positioning your body may be linked to any pain or movement issues you’re experiencing, and how and which Gokhale Method techniques will be most valuable for you in the short and long term.

Since we want these initial consultations completed prior to the commencement of the foundations course starting on the July 14, 2024, aboard the Celebrity Beyond, we need to complete some initial consultations prior to sailing on July 12, 2024, and some the day we all board the ship on July 13, 2024.

There will be four spots available for initial consultations under each teacher on July 12, 2024, and four spots available for initial consultations under each teacher on July 13, 2024.

For those wishing to schedule their initial consultations on July 12, 2024, the consultations will be performed at the Springhill Suites Marriott Ft Lauderdale Airport/Cruise Port (151 SW 18th Court, Dania Beach, FL, USA, 33004)

At the heart of the Gokhale Method is the Foundations Course.

Participants in the Gokhale Method Retreat will be receiving in person, hands-on instruction in the Gokhale Method Foundations Course from two teachers, Dr. Vera Baziuk and Sigrun Franzen.

The foundations course is a series of six lessons that focuses first on lengthening the spine, then strengthening the spine, then re-shaping the spine to a desired J-shape. Then we take that new length, strength, and shape of spine and apply it to proper sitting, standing, bending, sleeping, and walking.

Sitting won’t just be sitting; it will be an opportunity to stretch and heal your spine.

Sleeping will turn into a restorative practice, realigning your back with every peaceful moment.

Standing will no longer be tiring, but a chance for your muscles to rest as your bones align perfectly above your heels.

Bending will strengthen your back with each bend, not strain it.

Walking will become a graceful glide, a dance where each step strengthens your body.

This course isn’t just about easing the pain; it’s about relearning life’s most basic actions in a way that naturally rebuilds and fortifies your body. You’ll reclaim not just comfort, but confidence and control over your well-being.

Picture this, while on vacation you not only enjoy the holiday but also enjoy:

  • You, taller, simply because you’ve relieved your spine of unnecessary pressure.
  • You, stronger, not with bulk, but with bones fortified in just the right places.
  • You, breathing deeper, standing straighter, moving with an ease you thought was lost to the past.

With the skills you gain, you won’t just avoid injury—you’ll reverse years of wear and tear. Your joints, freed from the burden of misalignment, will thank you with every fluid, pain-free movement.

The Gokhale Method Alumni classes are only for available to students who have completed the Foundations Course.

During the Gokhale Method Retreat you will be receiving four 1-hour alumni classes to hone in your newly learned healthy postural habits and apply these skills in advanced ways.

The four 1-hour classes will include:

  1. Advanced glidewalking and stairs climbing
  2. Advanced strengthening and stretching key postural muscles and roller use
  3. Advanced pelvic floor strengthening
  4. Advanced stretchsitting applications and sleeping positions.

These classes will be held in the same meeting room aboard the Celebrity Beyond (meeting room TBA closer to sail date). Glide walking and stairs will be done as a group aboard the Celebrity Beyond.

We have set up a Gokhale Method Retreat Group while aboard the Celebrity Beyond. We encourage the group to mix and mingle with Gokhale Method like-minded individuals throughout the cruise.

We have an allocated Gokhale Method Retreat Group dining time of 6:00 PM aboard the Celebrity Beyond. During the nightly dining experience, we will have dining tables together to enjoy our meals and share our days experiences. This dining time is not obligatory but encouraged. You are welcome to choose your own dining experience.

Aboard the Celebrity Beyond, there will be two nights that are considered a formal dining experience. Guests are encouraged to dress up in formal attire. Women are encouraged to wear gowns and mean are encouraged to wear suits and ties.

Dr. Vera Baziuk has been on several cruises and enjoys formal dining nights! Some come very dressed up and some wear their Sunday best. It should be something you are comfortable wearing for a formal occasion and convenient enough to pack for travel.

On the evening of July 13, 2024, prior to our scheduled dinner time of 6:00 pm, we would love to meet, as a group on Deck 5 in an area of the ship call Le Voyage starting at 5:00 PM. Here we can introduce ourselves to the group and we can begin to get to know each other as we embark on the 8- day cruise.

We have a formal dining seating of 6:00 pm where we can further enjoy getting to know one another.

What is the Gokhale Method?

The Gokhale Method teaches optimal posture and pain relief techniques, offering expert guidance on proper sitting, standing, and movement for natural body alignment.

What does the Gokhale Method help with?

The Gokhale Method is designed to help anyone suffering with back and neck pain. It is an effective technique for alleviating neck and back pain but also other joint pains such as hip, knee, foot, and shoulder pains. It will also help individuals who simply wish to improve their posture for better function and/or physical appearance.

If you suffer with back and neck pain and have not experienced the lasting relief you need and deserve, the Gokhale Method would be a great fit for you.

Who can benefit from doing the Gokhale Method?

The Gokhale Method will benefit all who suffer with back, neck and other chronic joint pains.

There is no age limit to learning the Gokhale Method. Students have been as young as pre-teens and as old as centenarians!

What if I already have done the Initial Consultation but want to do the Gokhale Method Retreat?

If you have already completed the Initial Consultation but have not yet taken the Gokhale Method Retreat, please contact vera@gokhalemethod.com or sigrun@gokhalemethod.com. We will review your initial consultation and determine what steps are needed to still partake in the Gokhale Method retreat.

I want to do the Gokhale Method Retreat, can I do it alone?

That’s great you are interested, and we are glad to have you! Unfortunately, the listed price is per berth not stateroom. If you plan on coming alone and staying in the veranda stateroom by yourself, you will need to pay the additional cost of a person to stay alone. It is an unfortunate circumstance for those who travel alone.

There are several options that you may wish to consider:

Option A: A spouse or friend can join you and pay the package price of the cruise but need not attend the Gokhale Method Retreat itself. The cost for the cruise with the perks package alone is $2,550.00 USD.

We can think of no better way to get a vacation and learn how live life without pain! We urge you to share your enthusiasm for this retreat with your loved ones and ask if they would like to join you. Part of the success with the Gokhale Method is being around others who have a J spine. If your friends and family join you, you can work on your posture together and support each other weeks, months, and years after the cruise is done.

Option B: For all students who register a Gokhale Method Watercooler has been created to allow each of students the opportunity to ask questions and get to know each other. Within the Watercooler you could ask if there are others who are solo travelers and wish to share accommodations.

Option C: You pay the additional cost of single person travel and stay by yourself in a veranda room. Depending on the day you purchase, Celebrity Cruise has an offer for single travelers. If purchased on Friday, Saturday, or Monday (Celebrity Cruise main office is closed Sundays), the cost of the Gokhale Method Retreat and Cruise for a single traveler is $5,515.00 USD. If purchased on Wednesday or Thursday, the cost of the Gokhale Method Retreat and Cruise is $5,715.00 USD and you will receive a $200.00 USD on board Celebrity Cruise Credit. If purchased on a Tuesday, the cost of the Gokhale Method Retreat and Cruise for a single traveler is $5715.00 USD. These prices will still include applicable taxes and all previously listed perks.

I want to do the Gokhale Method Retreat, can I bring someone who doesn’t want to do the Gokhale Method Retreat?

Anyone can come along and take advantage of the South Caribbean Cruise with us!

If you want to bring a companion and take advantage of the perks package aboard the Beyond each additional person will pay $2,550.00 USD and they can join you in the stateroom. Each veranda stateroom can sleep up to four people.

Celebrity Cruise does advertise that additional passengers get discounted, however, that discounted price is not privy to the perks package (which includes a drinks package, wi-fi and gratuities for room and dining). If these additional services were added after the advertised discounted price, the final price of the cruise for your guest would be more expensive by a few hundred dollars.

How do additional members pay for the cruise?

If you have already registered and paid and would like to add an additional guest to join you in your stateroom with the perks package, please contact vera@gokhalemethod.com. Dr. Vera Baziuk will reach out to you and send you a special link where your guest can sign up to join you on the cruise without signing up for the Gokhale Method Retreat.

I want to come but traveling alone. Can I ask if someone wants to share accommodation?

For all students who register a Gokhale Method Retreat a “Watercooler” chat room within the Gokhale Method webpage has been created to allow each of students the opportunity to ask questions and get to know each other.

Within the watercooler you could ask if there are others who are solo travelers who wish to share accommodations.

Celebrity Cruise will be sending you information on what to expect with your cruise once you have signed up. Dr. Vera Baziuk has been on several cruises and can share some tips about cruising that she has learnt along the way:

  1. She likes boarding the cruise ship as soon as possible so that she can begin to enjoy the amenities aboard the ship right away. If you want to get the most out of the ship and your holiday, be one of the first to board.
  2. Make sure you pack a carry on with you. Once you board the ship, your luggage will likely take a few hours to find its way to your room. Pack a carry on that includes a bathing suit, a change of clothes, toiletries, suntan lotion, sunglasses, a hat etc. . . . things that you will need to enjoy the ship, it’s amenities, and everything else without immediate access to your suitcase.

The Gokhale Method Watercooler that has been setup for this Gokhale Method Retreat is a great place for students to share their comments and questions about the Retreat and Cruising in general. If you can’t find the answer through the paperwork Celebrity will be sending you, your question will likely be answered in the Watercooler.

Our minimum number of people needed for the Gokhale Method retreat is 8 people. If we do not have 8 people paid in full prior to March 1, 2024, the retreat will be cancelled or postponed to a later date and you will receive a full refund (subject to applicable service fees).

Certified Gokhale Method Teachers: Dr. Vera Baziuk and Sigrun Franzen

Dr. Vera Baziuk B.Sc., D.C.

Dr. Vera Baziuk has been a chiropractor for 22 years receiving her education at the Canadian Memorial chiropractic College in Toronto. She has been a practicing chiropractor since 2002. Dr. Vera Baziuk found the Gokhale Method serendipitously while googling information on back pain. She came across a posted interview with Esther Gokhale and Dr. Mercola and from that interview, Dr. Vera Baziuk had another career moment. The way Esther spoke of the spine, the pelvis and back pain, Dr. Vera immediately knew that Esther’s work and teachings are quintessential for anyone who suffers with back or neck pain.

In 2022, Dr. Vera Baziuk took teacher training with Esther in Palo Alto where she met her colleague, Sigrun Franzen. Dr. Vera became a certified Gokhale Method teacher in April 2023 and is enjoying helping her patients and new students learn how to re-algin their bodies to live pain free.
