The Feldenkrais Guild® was established by Moshe Feldenkrais, D.Sc., in 1977, to be the professional organization of practitioners and teachers of the Feldenkrais Method. In 1997 we changed our name to the Feldenkrais Guild of North America (FGNA).
FGNA is a nonprofit, tax exempt, professional organization concerned with increasing public awareness of the Feldenkrais Method of somatic education, the certification and continuing education of practitioners, the protection of the quality of the Feldenkrais work, and research in the Method’s effectiveness. Only people personally trained by Dr. Feldenkrais, or graduates of Guild Accredited Training Programs are eligible to be certified by, and to become members of FGNA, and to use the registered service marks below.
