Anat Baniel, Founder of Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement®
Anat Baniel is the founder of Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement®, a powerful practice that takes advantage of the brain’s remarkable ability to change itself for the better to heal body and mind.
Anat Baniel was born in Israel, and she went to graduate school at Tel Aviv University to become a clinical psychologist. At the same time she pursued her passion for dance. She also worked as a psychologist for the Israeli Army for a number of years.
Anat was looking to find a way to work with people that included movement and the feeling of self and the body. She always had a fascination with how the brain works. While in graduate school, she began studying with Dr. Moshé Feldenkrais.
Anat has taken the seminal work of Dr. Feldenkrais and evolved it over many years, after observing extraordinary breakthroughs in her work with a wide variety of clients, young and old. She has worked with high-performing musicians and dancers, people suffering from pain and limitations, and an ever-growing number of children with special needs. This combination of clients led Anat to have profound insight as to how the brain learns and changes. She developed NeuroMovement®, a science-based approach that provides easy-to-use tools—the Nine Essentials—that transform people’s brains, and thus lives, for the better.
Bestselling Author of Move Into Life and the acclaimed Kids Beyond Limits
Anyone can benefit from the Nine Essentials, which is why Anat wrote her bestselling book Move Into Life. She states:
“You can begin applying the Essentials as you read about them and begin experiencing changes right away.”
After repeated requests from parents and students, Anat wrote her book Kids Beyond Limits. She shares:
“It was the thousands of children, from a few weeks old to teenagers, whose transformations I had witnessed over the years through my work or through the work of practitioners I had trained, that compelled me to write this book.”
