About Feldenkrais Guild UK

The Feldenkrais Guild UK is the non-profit professional organisation representing practitioners and teachers of the Feldenkrais Method® in the UK. The guild promotes awareness of the method amongst the general public and facilitates the continuing education of practitioners.

Assuring the quality of work of our members

In order to be a member of the guild practitioners must complete an internationally- recognised training programme over four years. They are fully insured and accountable to the guild’s code of ethics.

Full members may use the letters FG(UK) after their names. They are eligible to teach group classes and offer individual lessons. Student teachers, once certified to do so after two years of their training, offer only group classes.

Use of Feldenkrais Method® service marked term and logo

Feldenkrais Method® is the registered trademark of the Feldenkrais Guild UK Ltd, Reg No. 1563759.

As a courtesy, any student of a recognised Feldenkrais professional training programme, when given permission by their Educational Director to teach on a provisional basis as a Student Teacher, or any graduate of a recognised Feldenkrais professional training programme, may use the registered trademark whether they are members of the Guild or not. The symbol “®” should appear prominently, and the statement of ownership by the Feldenkrais Guild UK Ltd must also be included.

The logo is the registered trademark of the SFV Schweizerischer Feldenkrais Verband; by arrangement through the International Feldenkrais foundation, members of the Feldenkrais Guild UK (Student Teacher or Practitioner members) may also use the logo.
