This is a wonderful time of exploration and discovery. Whether you anticipate becoming a Guild Certified Feldenkrais PractitionerCM and practicing professionally or you have taken the training for personal growth and enhancement, the Feldenkrais Guild® of North America (FGNA) is available to you.
We are a community with the common factor of participation in Guild accredited Feldenkrais training. We come from all walks of life and around the globe to share the Feldenkrais Method® experience.
We are a resource for materials to enhance learning and broaden your view of the potential of our work and strengthen your sense of competency. We are here to support you from the beginning of your training adventure through your future as a certified professional. Our public information website is available to you to share.
The Feldenkrais Guild of North America is a non-profit 501(c)(6) membership organization. Our organization accredits Feldenkrais trainings across North America. We accredited your training to ensure a consistent curriculum and level of excellence. As you complete levels in your training, FGNA is the organization that authorizes Trainee Awareness Through Movement® Teachers and certifies Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioners. We protect and maintain the service marks which will be yours to use with your annual certification renewal.
As a Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner you will be in community with the International Feldenkrais Federation, our network of 20 Guilds/Associations spanning the world. Many of us share the same Standards of Practice and have participated in similar accredited training programs.
FGNA has 10 Regions to meet the needs of local practitioners with study groups, libraries, advanced trainings, and community events. The Council of Regional Representatives supports teams of people in each Region who organize and communicate through newsletters, to include practitioner and trainee members in news of the community activities.
The Feldenkrais Educational Foundation of North America (FEFNA) is our 501(c)(3) non-profit organization to support research and share information about the Feldenkrais Method.
