About The Feldenkrais® Guild
The Feldenkrais Guild of North America was established by Moshe Feldenkrais before his death to oversee standards of training and professional conduct, in conjunction with Feldenkrais guilds in other countries through the International Feldenkrais Federation and a system of international Training Accreditation Boards.
To find out more about The Feldenkrais Guild, visit their website at www.feldenkrais.com. The website contains many articles about the Feldenkrais Method®, a listing of members throughout the world, and the code of professional conduct.
Training in the Feldenkrais Method® is 800-1000 hours spread over three-four years. At the halfway point of the training, students are authorized to teach Awareness Through Movement lessons to the public. At the end of the training, students are certified as Feldenkrais Practitioners and authorized to teach individual, hands-on Functional Integration lessons to the public.
The terms Feldenkrais Method®, Feldenkrais®, Awareness Through Movement®, and Functional Integrationare registered service marks of the Feldenkrais Guild. Guild-Certified Feldenkrais Teacher® and Guild-Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner® are certification marks of the Feldenkrais Guild®--which is itself a collective mark of The Feldenkrais Guild.
It is through legal ownership of these terms that the Feldenkrais Guild and the international Feldenkrais community are able to ensure training standards and professional conduct towards the public.
