Brain Gym® Australia, Inc
Brain Gym® Australia Inc. is a national not-for-profit organisation funded through membership fees, course registration fees, and through profit from events and workshops run by the Association. Associate membership is open to anyone interested in Brain Gym® and Educational Kinesiology. Professional membership is only for licensed Brain Gym® Movement Facilitators and Instructors/Consultants.
The intention is to let people know more about the many and varied applications of this work both within Australia and throughout the world.
The Brain Gym® /Edu-K Network originated in 1992 as an informal group to foster an interest in Brain Gym® and Educational Kinesiology. Over the years, there have been a number of changes.
In 1998, the organisation was formalised and registered as a not-for-profit.
In 2002, it became an incorporated association.
In early February 2011, Brain Gym® Australia was accepted as an approved Affiliate by the Brain Gym® International Board of Directors. 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.
Australia had the privilege in 2006 to hold the International Gathering in Brisbane, the first time since the late eighties that a world-wide Edu-K event of this magnitude was held in Australia.
In 2019 Brain Gym® International began trading as Breakthroughs International.
