"Now, as I'm about to turn 70, and because of chronic back and leg pain, I'm finding myself empowered to reexamine and moderate patterns of moving which I have carried with me for many years. With Eve's thoughtful, caring, creative guidance, I'm experiencing growing awareness and relearning how to use my body and feel better and stronger."
"I could not have made it through my 37-hour labor without the help of Eve and the Alexander Technique. I was able to ride the waves of pain of every contraction with more ease than I thought possible."

About me

What is better than thinking or moving? Thinking AND Moving! I am passionate about helping people discover the intersection of thought and action, to help them finally discover the "operating instructions" for their own living, breathing body. I specialize in Embodied Education for people who are experiencing back pain, grandparent-types who finally have time to devote to their own wellbeing, performers who want to avoid or return from injury and burnout, moms who are juggling everyone's needs and anyone who is interested in a thoughtful approach to posture, movement, balance, breathing, speaking, living.


Questions & Answers

Eve Bernfeld Answers
I'm sorry to hear you're experiencing this pain! I hope you are able to see someone who can look at how you walk and move generally. Here are a couple of things to try. First, before you begin walking, think of your body being Soft & Tall. And refresh the idea while you're walking. Most of us have habits of stiffness or collapse (or both!) in the way we walk. Thinking of walking Soft & Tall can help with those habits. Also, do you have a strong heel-strike when you walk? If you're not sure, check out your shoes. If they wear down quickly in the heel, you probably do. But a hard heel-strike puts a lot of pressure on the low back. Experiment with taking slightly smaller steps, so your feet stay a little more underneath your pelvis. It will probably feel weird, but it might just help. Good luck!
