Anat Baniel Method International offers NeuroMovement® Practitioner Training Programs consisting of a unique blend of both in-person and online learning.
Six of the 10 training segments are done in person, and four of the segments are done online in between the in-person segments.
During the online segments, trainees will meet weekly via conference or video calls with their group leader to go over the assigned materials and address questions. The group leaders are available for help and provide support to the participants in their group. The entire training group also meets with Anat via conference or video call several times during the online segments.
Trainees are encouraged to begin practicing early on and are provided with supporting teaching materials in the form of transcripts and extensive notes after each training segment.
