How Did the NeuroMovement® Method Evolve?
Anat Baniel Answers: How Did You Get Here?
The Method developed by Dr. Feldenkrais is the platform from which Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement® has evolved.
Anat Baniel’s studies and her work with Dr. Feldenkrais have had a profound impact on her thinking and practice.
Evolving the Method of Feldenkrais Into Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement®
Anat Baniel Method® (ABM) NeuroMovement® has evolved from Anat Baniel’s diverse background:
her Master’s degree and studies in Clinical Psychology
her interest and experience in dance
the sciences and her degree in statistics
extensive study and close collaboration with Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais
30+ years of professional experience in her own successful practice
teaching movement workshops worldwide
training thousands of ABM NeuroMovement® Practitioners
“Dr. Moshé Feldenkrais was the greatest thinker in the 20th Century on how to improve movement. He was well ahead of his time in his understanding that the brain can change itself in order to improve skill and well-being.” —Anat Baniel
The Remarkable Potential of the Human Brain
Early on, Anat Baniel understood the remarkable potential of the human brain to change, at any age. She saw firsthand how her techniques and approach transformed the ability of children and adults to move, think, feel, overcome challenges, and reach new levels of performance often believed to be impossible.
Anat observed the extraordinary transformations in her clients and trainees on a daily basis. She kept challenging herself with the questions:
What was it about what she was doing that generated
such miraculous changes in her clients?
What are the conditions that awaken the brain
to reach new potentials and levels of performance?
Through Anat Baniel’s extensive and highly successful experiences with thousands of adults and children the world over—from high-performance athletes, business people, scientists, and musicians to people with neurological trauma and tiny babies and children with severe developmental challenges—Anat Baniel has identified fundamental principles of brain change that she calls the 9 Essentials. These principles are validated by brain research.
Today, many certified ABM NeuroMovement® Practitioners use the same knowledge to powerfully transform the lives of their clients and children, as well as their own lives.
“Anat Baniel has evolved to a point that few can match, let alone surpass.”

Dr. Norman Doidge, the author of The Brain That Changes Itself and The Brain’s Way of Healing, recommends Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement®:
“Following in the footsteps of Moshe Feldenkrais…Baniel shows why our mainstream approach…is often wrong, and at times damaging…. The approach here [is], far wiser, far more subtle, truly holistic, far more ingenious, far more in accord with how brain development occurs…”
NeuroMovement® Is Revolutionary and Continues to Evolve
This NeuroMovement® approach is revolutionary, yet the 9 Essentials can be adopted by anyone for daily life, or professional use. The 9 Essentials and NeuroMovement® can also guide professionals in creating groundbreaking practices in diverse fields such as rehabilitation, education, and health and fitness.
More and more leading neuroscientists, medical doctors, educators, therapists, and integrative medicine practitioners are taking interest in NeuroMovement® as a source for practical methods that match the most advanced knowledge of brain function. Anat Baniel continues to evolve and refine her method; it’s a live and dynamic process.
Anat has also written two books: her bestselling Move Into Life: NeuroMovement® for Lifelong Vitality and Kids Beyond Limits that continue to reach people worldwide.
