Spaciousness & The Gift of Listening

Truly listening has the power to heal and this is something most of us have experienced. Being witnessed, being heard, receiving open and generous attention are moments of deep connection with our fellow humans, animals, beings, the world. It can gift us with a sense of openness, and help us find peace with where we are in this moment, lessening our sense of struggle.

The Art of Aging Gracefully

Lengthening and widening is our innate way of being, no matter what age. If it is not true for you at this time, it is within you, part of you, it is your natural way of functioning and accessible to you always, no matter what age or state of health you are in.

What does that mean ?

"After a year of working with Loba, I continue to improve in so many ways.  The Technique, especially as applied by Loba, is very effective and liberating.”

Carol Miller, retired teacher

"Having taken Alexander lessons from Loba Chudak I was surprised to notice after about half a year of weekly lessons that the way I did simple things, how I moved, had fundamentally changed.  Instead of rather quick, violent, jerky motions, I was moving in a slower, more fluid fashion with less attendant stress and anxiety.  I can attribute this change only to the surprising effectiveness of the Alexander Technique.

The Technique quickly breaks the habit of reacting to external and internal events in panic or with anger and allows appropriate responses to be chosen. I found Loba to be a skilled & caring instructor."

Fred Lawrence, Prof. Emeritus of Engineering, UIUC

"When I first began working with Loba I was experiencing anxiety, mild depression, pain due to a neck injury and tennis elbow. Through her program I have gained a new awareness for how I am using my body throughout the day. I have learned to respond in new ways, releasing tension, making changes and improvements in the moment.

The pain in my elbow cleared up very quickly and the improvements in my tennis and golf game are remarkable. The increase in choices and my understanding of them have greatly improved my quality of life, my interactions with others, as well as my overall physical and mental health."

Nancy Dankle, Marketing Expert
