FGNA is Committed to You, Its Valued Members.  
In response to FGNA Member feedback, we have added more benefits, started a process of making the Members’ website a “destination” with useful resources for you, and strengthened our communications efforts both to Members and to the general public. Professional Liability insurance may still be purchased for only an additional $89. See the full list of Member Benefits 
FGNA is committed to increasing public awareness, supporting the certification and continuing education of practitioners, and protecting the quality of our work. In 2018, FGNA protected the service marks in 29 states, and actively monitored 11 states under review; as well as preventing usage by unauthorized individuals, which cost nearly $100,000. For more information on how FGNA has protected your practice, please see the Annual Report
As a not-for-profit organization, all monies received go directly to Member Benefits; funding programs, events, tools, and operations that benefit you as a practitioner every day.
Fees have not changed for 7 years. With rising costs we must raise our membership fee to $500 USD (previously $400 USD) effective August 30, 2019. The increase allows us to continue to effectively advocate for the Feldenkrais community as well as improve support, resources, and services to you. In order to better serve members, FGNA works with Virtual, our Management company, as well as employing contract experts to support the organization. 
Please contact us at if you have any questions about your membership. Your membership will expire on December 31, 2019. Please see here for instructions on how to renew. 
From Member Benefits, to professional advocacy, to increased public visibility, it’s never been a better time to be a Member of FGNA. And, FGNA needs you more than ever. We look forward to another great year and hope you will continue your support and participation in FGNA.

Sonja H Sutherland
I have benefited from being a Guild member for almost 25 years and would like to give back to my Feldenkrais colleagues and community. I am an Assistant Trainer and I have a Feldenkrais practice in Berkeley since 1997. My background includes an MA in Dance, black belt in Aikido, and 20 years of extensive studies with Stanley Keleman in Formative Psychology®. I look forward to serving you!
Christine Germain
I have been doing Feldenkrais since 2002 as part of my dance training in Quebec, Canada. I became a Guild member in 2013 after I graduated from Berkeley 7 training, directed by Dennis Leri and Carol Kress. I have had the honour and privilege to work in Sports and Dance Medicine at St-Francis Memorial hospital in San Francisco, with SF Giants baseball player Hunter Pence, in rehab at the Performance Medicine department of  Cirque du Soleil, and at The Berkeley Rep School of Theatre where I still teach workshops. I am also a choreographer and use the Feldenkrais Method principles as part of my dance research and performance. I feel so lucky to be co-representing our region along with Sonja H Sutherland, and I hope to serve you in the best possible way! Thank you!
