Becoming an Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement® Practitioner
Trainees Receive Ongoing Feedback and Supervised Practicums
Trainees will be given ongoing feedback during class, throughout the training programs, and in person, when deemed necessary.
Successful completion of the program is dependent on positive reviews for each session and the trainee’s ability to learn, perform, and teach both group movement lessons (TML) and individual movement lessons (FS), observed throughout the training segments and during the supervised practicum sessions.
When a trainee is behind in her/his ability to perform, one of our teachers/trainers will discuss the issue(s) and suggest possible ways to remedy the situation. This may include private study with an instructor, which may incur additional cost for the trainee.
Trainees will be given a period of time in which they will be expected to remedy the situation in order to continue with the training and be eligible for graduation.
The graduation requirements for the Practitioner Training Program include:
Full attendance in all In-Person (IP) training segments
(Note: In extenuating circumstances, with approval, a trainee may complete 1 IP training segment online.)
Completion in full of the Online (OL) training segments; each of the OL training segments to be completed within the allotted time and prior to the next IP segment
