We have both completed a full-time three year training course, have taught extensively in private practice and have been involved in the training of new Alexander teachers. We are members of both Gesellschaft für F.M. Alexander-Technik Österreich and The Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique and adhere to a published code of ethical and professional standards.
Regina Stratil trained 2011-2014 with Karen Wentworth in London. Before she moved to London to study Alexander Technique, she had graduated from Vienna University (degree in Historical Comparative Linguistics/Indo-European Studies) and then gathered valuable experience in different jobs. She is practising Aikido, a Japanese Martial Art, since 1993 (currently at the Aikido Union Graz).
Regina is running her own Alexander Technique teaching practice since she qualified as a teacher: From 2014 to 2018 in London and since 2018 in Graz. In 2017 and 2018 she was also teaching at two teacher training courses in London – The Alexander Technique Studio and the Constructive Teaching Centre – for a term each.
2014-2018 Regina was part-time assistant to the manager at the Walter Carrington Educational Trust in London, an Alexander Technique charity, and archivist at the Walter Carrington Archives. Since 2014 Regina has also been assisting with the Alexander Technique publishing company Mouritz.
Regina and three colleagues pioneered an initiative to explore teaching the Alexander Technique (AT) to individuals with a Parkinson’s Disease (PD) diagnosis. As part of this group Regina gave workshops and individual lessons to people living with PD and their carers and was instrumental in organising specialised post-graduate training for AT teachers in the years 2016 to 2018. A report about this initiative has been published in STATNews in 2018 and even more information on this initiative can be found here.
Regina is interested in the history of the Alexander Technique and has researched the life and work of Irene Tasker (1887-1977), an influential assistant of F. M. Alexander and an eminent teacher of the Alexander Technique. Regina’s biography – “Irene Tasker – Her Life and Work with the Alexander Technique” – was published by Mouritz in September 2020. Review in the Journal of the American Society for the Alexander Technique (AmSAT): Irene Tasker by Regina Stratil, reviewed by Genoa Davidson & Joe Alberti (AmSAT Journal No. 18, Spring 2021, p. 45).
