Welcome to the Alexander Technique & Body Ease Coaching.

I am Loba Chudak, creator of LivingPoise Coaching Programs that help women and men who are stressed, anxious, overwhelmed and in pain let go of tension, so they can cultivate ease, confidence and calm to return to a deeper connection within themselves and restore their best selves in all areas of their life.

My work is founded in the Alexander Technique, a unique and evidence based mind-body method, developed and practiced since the 1930's with far reaching results and lasting benefits, as well as grounded in my over 25 years of ongoing meditation practice, performance experience as a professional flutist and being an entrepreneur.

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 am more aware of my neck and back and my ways of holding. I have learned to respond in new ways, releasing tension, making changes and improvements in the moment. Working with Loba has broadened my understanding of the mind-body connection and it’s relationship to my overall health.

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.

I’ve experienced chronic fatigue for years never really knowing why. Loba’s work has guided me to a deeper understanding of the connection between the spiritual and physical. I have been introduced to techniques for deep relaxation as well as strengthening and centering, that have made a real difference in how I process fatigue and stress.

Understanding one's self and self-expression are major hurdles as I struggled with emotional clarity torn between accommodating the needs of others and nurturing my own set of needs. My work with Loba has enabled me to embrace a new level of confidence and clarity, I now feel justified to take care of myself. Fundamental to my work with Loba is that she’s intuitive and cares about my progress. I found Loba to be passionate about helping people help themselves through encouragement, skilled support, and compassionate guidance. I’m moved by her willingness to reach deep and guide and empower me into untapped resources. Thank you so much for all you bring to my life.

After having taken lessons with Loba, my learning with the Alexander Technique continues. It's quite amazing; I notice myself discovering more practical and useful ways to utilize my body's natural mechanics. As a result, I believe, I suffer less now from various pains and aches which I had hitherto assumed unavoidable. For instance, when I began studying with her, I suffered from pain in my feet, and after a few sessions, this was gone. Moreover, she and I worked together on my guitar technique, and since then my playing feels like it is utilizing more functional movements. Loba is wonderfully skilled and without hesitation I'd certainly recommend her excellent work to anyone.

My work with Loba in her Living Poise programs and one on one retreats over an extended period of time has impacted my life profoundly.

After spending just a short amount of time with Loba I feel peaceful and at ease, after an extended period of time I feel transformed inside and out.

The level of self care that Loba teaches and lives has been tremendously valuable for me. Aspiring towards a life of balance and deeper self care, I will be forever grateful to Loba for her support and guidance.

"I was giving up in the war against my body; that’s how it felt.  The pain of chronic conditions had really knocked me down, then a severe injury caused everything to get worse suddenly.  Loba to the rescue!  After 3 months of working with Loba, I am remarkably better in so many ways.  I am learning how to use my whole self in ways that encourage space; in that space, I am growing.

At my first lesson, pain made it extremely difficult to walk or stand, and my attitude was close to despair.  Loba gently worked to help me move in different ways, to release tension that was adding to the pain, and to trust myself to let go.  As the physical pain has lessened, she has opened up so many opportunities to change in other ways.  I am fully committed to this new path of using myself well.

She is patient, gentle, and kind in every moment. She is an artist and a musician, with an uncanny intuitive sense and a very deep understanding of the healing process; these talents all combine to make her an outstanding Alexander Technique teacher.  For the first time in several years, I have hope that the future can be better than the present."

Carol Miller, retired teacher

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.”

What people say

Cultivate the tools to let go of tension, transform stress and move towards improved mobility, comfort and ease!

  • Learn new tools and expand your repertoire for inspired and skillful choice making! Knowing how to make constructive and intelligent choices is the key to better taking care or yourself and your whole life!
  • A lifetime of habitual responses, mental, emotional and physical patterns accumulate and leave their traces, but they are our opportunity to become more attuned to ourselves and our whole life, if we can meet them from a different angel and engage our whole being to experience what is already within us.
  • Through our work my clients experience a new sense of freedom and ease as they move through their day.
  • Many experience a reduction in tension and pain and an increase in clarity, joy and confidence. As their use of themselves improves their posture becomes naturally upright and poised, they have more energy, feel calmer, more grounded, emotionally stable and overall capable.
