Gratitude, appreciation, and thankfulness are expressions we all use. Rarely do we complain upon hearing these terms used in relation to ourselves. FGNA is a membership organization with many practitioners who work quietly in their offices, sharing the Feldenkrais Method® with their families, community, and colleagues.

Your membership organization utilizes the people who volunteer to serve:
  • on various committees,
  • as regional officers,
  • as editors and writers,
  • as conference support,
  • as members of elected and appointed positions on
    • NATAB
    • CORR
    • the Grievance Committee,
    • the Nominating Committee,
    • the FGNA and FEFNA Boards,
    • the Ester Thelen Committee,
    • and more.
They contribute thousands of hours for all members, certified non-members, and trainees. Each year we select volunteers who have moved our work forward in some way.

For all of the time and the passion each of these people contributed, we thank you.

Honoring practitioners who have reached the goal of moving into the tenth decade of life is a pleasure. These people continue to be part of the history of the Feldenkrais Method®, working in their practices without recognition, sharing their passion for the lessons with the students who seek the possibilities offered in our work. This year we are able to bring these names forward to honor them and thank them for their tenacity, leadership, and forward thinking which paved a path for us.
