Common Questions about Applying
Q: One of my sources is asking about general guidelines for the recommendation she is to write.
A: The recommendation should say a little bit about their connection with you, what you will contribute as a member of the training, and anything else that is significant. The letters give us an opportunity to get to know you before the start of the training.
Q: Do you require the letters by mail or would email be ok?
A: We prefer the letters to come by email.
Q: Does it make a difference if I apply soon or closer to the beginning of the program?
A: You will find that sooner is better. Once you are fully registered in the training you can immediately start to participate in our pre-training study group. It is an amazing way to get a head start in preparation for the start of the training.
These fees, in Canadian Dollars, become part of your first year’s tuition fees upon acceptance.

Our entry Requirements, including Fees and Cancellations
Applicants to the Kelowna Feldenkrais Teacher Training Program must be 19 years of age or over. Prior experience with the Feldenkrais Method, individual lessons, group classes, and readings are preferred but interest and maturity are essential. Applicants will have attained the maturity and focus in life that will be a suitable foundation for entry into the Kelowna training program.
Diversity of backgrounds of the training participants contributes greatly to the training experience and we encourage applicants from a wide variety of professions, occupations, and fields of endeavour. Many will blend the Feldenkrais Method with their field of expertise, while others will use this training to begin a new professional life. Applicants shall be accepted into the training without regard to their race, gender, religion, physical limitations, age, or sexual orientation. Applicants must be committed to completing all segments of the training. Neither the student nor The Kelowna Feldenkrais Teacher Training Program may waive any of the program admission requirements.
