Regina Stratil trained 2011-14 with Karen Wentworth in London. After graduation she set up a private teaching practice at Student Central in Bloomsbury and the Alexander Technique Imperial Wharf centre, London, where she taught until her relocation back to her native Austria in June 2018.

She gave regular introductory workshops at the Alexander Technique Imperial Wharf centre and led or assisted with a number of Alexander Technique workshops for special groups, like writers, AT teachers interested in Aikido, Parkinson’s Disease sufferers and carers, actors, singers, musicians, riders, Shiatsu practitioners, radiographers, mammographers and sonographers. She was teaching at two teacher training courses in London – The Alexander Technique Studio and the Constructive Teaching Centre – for a term each in 2017 and 2018.

From 2016-18 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 pioneering group Regina gave workshops and individual lessons to people living with PD and their carers and helped to organise specialised post-grad training for AT teachers. More on this initiative here.

2014-18 Regina was part-time assistant to the manager at the Walter Carrington Educational Trust and archivist at the Walter Carrington Archives. She has a particular interest in the history of the Alexander Technique and is currently researching the life and work of Irene Tasker, one of the first assistants of F. M. Alexander and an influential teacher of the Alexander Technique. Since 2014 Regina has also been assisting with the Alexander Technique publishing company Mouritz.

Regina graduated from Vienna University with a Mag. phil. degree in Historical Comparative Linguistics and has worked as a computer programmer, ran her own courier business – driving a little van all over Europe – and was employed as a very busy print production manager at an international mail order company before moving to London to study the Alexander Technique.

Regina (4th Dan Aikikai) has been practising Aikido, a Japanese Martial Art, for more than 25 years, considering herself a student of Nobuyoshi Tamura Shihan and now Frank Koren Shihan. She trains with the Aikido Union Graz. Since summer 2018 she has been teaching Alexander-Technique in Graz in private practice.
