What is NeuroMovement® and the Anat Baniel Method?

Slow down & discover new ways to move!

Whether from injury, pain or disease, we unconsciously form habits of holding our bodies in ways that limit or hurt us. By guiding you through gentle movements, I will help you become aware of how your body is currently moving, providing your brain with the information it needs to rediscover the easiest ways to move and create new movement patterns. You can learn lots more about Neuromovement and the Anat Baniel Method on her website, anatbanielmethod.com

Your brain controls how you move, but sometimes it makes inefficient choices. In order to make better choices, the brain first needs to experience different ways your body can move through slow, guided movements. Through this process, the brain grows billions of new neural connections, enabling it to choose the easiest movements for your body.

Neuromovement explained in a TED Talk

Watch my mentor Anat Baniel speak about neuromovement at TEDx Berkeley:

“My grandchildren and myself personally have benefitted from Jan's gentle nature, deep wisdom of the body and great listening skills. I personally know that she spends countless hours thinking about her clients and what is needed to best achieve the body response needed.” - Sally
