Courses

Here is a list of upcoming approved courses that count towards licensure and/or re-licensure. All licensed instructors are independent contractors and therefore handle their own course registration process including fees, schedules, and locations. Brain Gym® Australia (BGA), as an official affiliate of Brain Gym® International (BGI), licenses instructors in Australia to use the work in a responsible and ethical manner. While BGI can influence the course content, it cannot control the business decisions independent contractors make.

A sponsor is also an independent contractor and is someone who hires an instructor to come and teach a course for them. Please contact the instructor or sponsor directly for more information.

Check the Brain Gym International website for international courses.

Introductory Workshops

They are taught by licensed Brain Gym Instructors and are a great way to experience the benefits of the movements.
