Anat Baniel, best-selling author of Move Into Life and Kids Beyond Limits, is the creator of the Anat Baniel Method™ (ABM), a powerful practice that takes advantage of the brain’s ability to change itself at any age to heal both body and mind.
Trained as a clinical psychologist and dancer, Baniel worked closely with Moshé Feldenkrais for many years, learning his renowned a somatic educational system. Since then, she has successfully worked with thousands of people, from high-performance athletes, dancers, and musicians, to those suffering from pain and injury, and has trained hundreds of practitioners in her method worldwide.
She is especially renowned for her work with children with special needs. Her book, Kids Beyond Limits, provides practical tools and describes how to apply her techniques to access the remarkable capacities of the human brain to change itself for the better. The book also explores what children need to overcome special challenges and to dramatically improve their emotional, intellectual, and physical abilities.
At her ABM center in Marin County, California, Baniel and her team teach seminars, work with private clients, and train practitioners in the ABM experience, learning about the power of the brain to create new neural connections and patterns. As a result, her clients experience the seemingly miraculous transformation into greater ease and skill in their movement, clarity of thought, hightened creativity, and more energy.
