I was introduced to the work of Anat Baniel in 2013. At that time, I was unable to make sense of her method and 9 Essentials (Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement® (ABMN). They were far from aligned with conventional rehab and generally accepted practices in occupational therapy. For reasons unknown to me, I continued to find myself looking to find out more about this method. I bought DVDs and watched YouTube videos and I just couldn’t get it or get it out of my mind.
In August of 2015 Anat did a two-day workshop in the Cincinnati, Ohio area and I just had to go. I drove two hours from my Indiana home on a mission. Maybe this training opportunity would give me the answers I had been looking for???
Anat Baniel was and is a highly charismatic and dynamic speaker and teacher. It was during the second day of this workshop that I knew I must learn more about this method. I had an internal drive and curiosity. What better way to learn than jumping into practitioner training?!?!
Since that day, I have only increased my desire to learn and experience the transformational method developed by Anat, my amazing teacher. I continue to be curious and motivated to learn. I have enrolled in the Children’s Mastery continuing educational program and will begin in July 2017. I see myself as a life longer learner of this method and I look forward to the rich possibilities ahead.
If you have an interest in exploring ABMN or becoming a practitioner, please feel free to contact me.
“Movement is life: Without movement life is unthinkable. – Moshe Feldenkrais”.
Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement® is an incredible approach to turn on the brain's learning switch and introduce new possibilities and learning. Neuroplasticity is the term to describe the ability of the brain to change. Research has shown that the human brain has the lifelong capacity to change. No one is ever too old to experience positive brain changes. Through movement, Anat Baniel has discovered a method to connect with and make miraculous changes in people and their brains. Many individuals who have reached their typical “rehab potential” with traditional therapies experience significant improvement in functional outcomes with ABMN.
It has been my privilege to study under Anat Baniel and to begin learning her amazing method. I received my certification as an Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement® Practitioner in May or 2017. I witnessed remarkable change in the individuals who received lessons from myself and others. The results I have seen from ABMN far exceed those I’ve seen in my 20+ years’ work as a pediatric occupational therapist. I am determined to build a practice to help individuals become more of who they were intended to be.
Please see the Anat Baniel website for more information about ABMN. You will also find a free download of the 9 Essentials.

ABMN has forever changed my life. It has challenged me to get out of my old ways of thinking. I have been shown cutting edge understanding of how the brain functions and the amazing lifelong potential for positive neuroplastic change. I have personally experienced changes in my own body and mind while taking part in Transformational Movement Lessons (TMLs) and Functional Synthesis (FSs.)
