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. Over the past 30 years, Anat Baniel has helped thousands, from children with special needs to stroke survivors to high-performing athletes overcome pain and limitation, and reach new heights of performance, both physical and mental. 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. While in graduate school, she began studying with Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais. Dr. Feldenkrais was not only her teacher and mentor, he also became her very good friend. He was adamant that Anat do the work in her own distinct way, allowing her Method to develop and evolve uniquely and fully. His words to her early on were: “Do not let anyone tell you how to do your work.” And that included him. Anat Baniel continued working with high performers such as musicians and dancers, with people suffering from pain or limitations, and with 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 her Method and defined the Nine Essentials that are required to drive potent, positive brain change. Anat’s work is at the forefront of the emerging brain plasticity field, helping wake up the brain to its greater potency for learning and change throughout life. And anyone can benefit from the Nine Essentials, which is why Anat wrote her bestselling book Move Into Life. “You can begin applying the essentials as you read about them and begin experiencing changes right away.” And after repeated requests from parents and students, Anat wrote her book Kids Beyond Limits. “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.” Anat has trained hundreds of practitioners in this Method. She and her team work out of the Anat Baniel Method Center located in San Rafael, California. For more information, go to www.anatbanielmethod.com.Read more Read less
