About the Society

The Alexander Technique has been taught for over one hundred years. In 1958, the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique (STAT) was founded in the UK by teachers who were trained personally by FM Alexander. STAT’s first aim is to ensure the highest standards of teacher training and professional practice.

Teaching members of STAT:

  • Are registered (MSTAT) to teach the Technique after completing an approved three-year training course or having reached a standard approved by STAT.
  • Are required to adhere to the Society’s published Code of Professional Conduct and Competence, and are covered by professional indemnity insurance.

There are currently over 2500 teaching members of STAT and its Affiliated Societies world-wide. Graduates of STAT training courses are assessed by a system of external moderation. The Society also runs a post-graduate programme of Continuing Professional Development.
