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.
