Before I came to Regina, I felt disconnected from my body, but I didn’t know what to do about it. I tried some exercises and stretching, but there was something missing. I started doing aikido, with some vague ideas about learning to move in a different, more coordinated and less forceful way. I searched and found that Regina had aikido experience and contacted her, with the aim of helping me with improving my rolling. I am so pleased with the result of that search, which has provided so much more than meeting my original aim.
I like to feel confident that my teacher knows their stuff and I am aware of how much time and money Regina puts in to attending workshops, to keep her skills up to date and open to new thinking. I feel that I can take my lessons with Regina, to wherever I want them to go. If I have trouble articulating how I am experiencing something in my body, Regina will persevere until we get to an explanation that I can work with. I am a very demanding student and ask a lot of questions and turn up with a list of observations, each week. Regina helps me to put these into some kind of context that I can understand. My aikido training partners are noticing how much my movement has improved and I can find so many applications for using Alexander Technique principles, in daily life.
I feel that the Alexander Technique undersells itself, in general, as a practice that can provide an individual with a framework to think about how they use their body. You’ll make your own decision as to whether to try the Alexander Technique. If you do, you will be working with someone, in Regina, who I find to be switched-on, fun, committed and excellent!
