Anat Baniel

AnatAnat Baniel is the founder of Anat Baniel Method NeuroMovement, a powerful practice that takesadvantage of the brain’s remarkable ability to change itself to heal body and mind. She studied clinical psychology and statistics, was trained as a dancer, and was a close professional associate of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais. While still living in Israel, Anat worked with wounded war veterans, helping them recover lost mobility, overcome pain and limitation, and experience enhanced wellbeing.

Over the past 30 years, Anat has helped thousands of people from stroke patients to high-performing athletes overcome pain and reach new heights of performance, both physical and mental. She has seen remarkable outcomes in people with chronic pain, physical injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and limitations due to stroke or aging, as well as in high-performing athletes, musicians, dancers, business people, and others.

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. Her innovative, scientifically based approach provides concrete and easy-to-use tools—the Nine Essentials—that enable adults (and children) to move beyond their limitations, making the seemingly impossible possible.

Anat is the author of the bestselling book Move Into Life and the acclaimed Kids Beyond Limits. She has trained hundreds of practitioners in this method. Anat and her team are currently collaborating with neuroscientists and technology experts on developing a neuroscience, neuroplasticity approach to rehabilitation. She and her team work out of the Anat Baniel Method Center in San Rafael, California.
