Program Descriptions

Program 1: NeuroMovement® for Whole Body Fitness

NeuroMovement for Whole Body Fitness

Have you ever asked yourself what makes some movements easy to do and others clumsier? Perhaps even painful, or impossible to do?

When we try to improve our ability to perform, we often focus on the muscles and joints, because that is what we feel and see moving. However, when we have a limitation, or pain, it is our brain that needs to change first. The brain is the CEO of all of our actions.

It is the brain that tells the muscles what to do, forms our thoughts and beliefs, and decides how we will perform any movement or action. In order to be able to organize our movements, the brain first needs to map our body into itself through multitudes of experiences.

Through this process, the brain grows billions of new connections from which it creates our unique patterns, or what Anat calls self image. Every person’s self image is different. For example, a concert pianist will have very dense brain maps associated to her hands and fingers, and might have a much more limited representation of her pelvis. Whereas a belly dancer will have a much fuller self image of her pelvis than most of us.

Anat calls this the ‘Swiss cheese effect.’ The areas that are less mapped in the brain are like the holes in the cheese. Pain, limitations, and feeling stuck are often associated with the areas of ourselves that are under developed that have not been sufficiently mapped into the brain and that we are less aware of – the holes in the cheese.

It’s also important to understand that any movement we do, is a whole brain/body movement. When we lift our arm, it’s not only the arm that the brain has to organize. It has to account for every part of ourselves. It has to know where every part of the body is in space and the dynamic relationships between the different parts of the body at all times. Without it, we couldn’t have successful and continuous movement.

In NeuroMovement® for Whole Body Fitness, the focus is on different areas of the body to insure sufficient connections in the brain that allow it to successfully organize basic and more complex movements. Each movement lesson will help map the areas of focus more fully in the brain. Your brain will also form new connections and relationships between different parts of the body resulting in greater flexibility, strength, dexterity, and ease of movement.

The NeuroMovement® for Whole Body Fitness is the foundational program for all other NeuroMovement programs and should be done first.

NeuroMovement® for Whole Body Fitness Lessons:
Lesson 1: On Back Folding Chest and Spine
Lesson 2: On Side Moving Arms and Legs
Lesson 3: On Back – Your Pelvis
Lesson 4: On Belly – Twisting to Sitting
Lesson 5: Side Sitting – Head/Hip Connection
Lesson 6: Whole Body Integration into Easy Swift Movement

Program 2: NeuroMovement® for Better Balance

NeuroMovement for BetterBalance

Good balance gives us great freedom in movement. It lets us feel safe and free to venture out into the world; to try new things and to move swiftly and powerfully. Yet so many adults suffer compromised balance in their movement.

Balance problems are among the most common reasons that older adults seek help from a doctor and are a major cause in falls. In 2008, an estimated 14.8 percent of American adults (33.4 million) had some form of balance problem. And it is not only a challenge for the aging population. Research done in NASA has shown that people in their 20’s already begin to show signs of diminished balance.

Balance is a BIG deal. Our structure is such that our body is built to almost fall all the time when we are upright. We have a narrow base, a high center of gravity and a heavy head at the top. The good news about this structure is that it makes initiating movement very easy and allows great freedom to move in all directions. On the other hand, the brain has to constantly make sure we don’t fall.

It takes a healthy child’s brain six years to figure out to LEARN, how to stand safely on one leg for 10 seconds, and how to hop on one leg 20 feet. And it doesn’t stop there. This child will continue to improve his or her ability to balance while doing increasingly more complex activities for years to come.

How come so many people, including young people, begin showing deterioration in their balance skills?

Unlike children that move constantly and their brains have to negotiate the gravitational field continuously, adults sit for long hours starving their brain of the need to figure out how to not fall. And even with some of the fitness programs, the activity does not require the brain to negotiate balance. For example: using stationary bikes, lifting weights while strapped into a machine, or even doing exercise routines that have a limited number of movement variations.

Is it unavoidable for people, as they age, for their stance gets wider, for movement to become rigid and increasingly more limited in an attempt to not lose balance? The answer is a definite NO!

The human brain is the most changeable part of ourselves. With the right conditions all symptoms of aging, including deteriorated balance, can reverse themselves. Balance is the outcome of your brain having the resources and the speed to make sure you do not fall as you move.

With NeuroMovement® for Better Balance, your brain will receive the flow of new information it needs. With this new information, your brain will create new connections and be able to swiftly and effectively stop you from falling as you move and allow you better coordinated movement. You will be able to move faster and be more sure-footed.

Whether standing on one leg when you put your pants on, going up and down stairs, hiking a narrow trail, performing Yoga poses, dancing, or getting in and out of the bath tub, you will have the joy of easy, safe, and well- balanced movement; and the freedom to do more of what you want.

NeuroMovement® for Better Balance lessons:
Lesson 1: On Hands and Knees – Head, Spine and Pelvis
Lesson 2: Standing Behind Chair – Crossing Legs
Lesson 3: Sitting/Lying – Interlacing Toes and Fingers
Lesson 4: Standing/Lying – On One Leg
Lesson 5: From Sitting To Standing – With One Leg Crossed
Lesson 6: From Walking To Hopping

Program 3: NeuroMovement® For Healthy Dynamic Sitting

NeuroMovement for Healthy Dynamic Sitting

Did you know that a common reason why older people seek in-home help is their difficulty, or loss of ability to get out of a chair? And did you know that the health of young, healthy people, who sit for long periods of time, is compromised?

Interestingly, studies have shown that idle sitting (sedentary work) is an independent predictor of disease. Daily exercise before or after work, by itself, does not cancel out a day of sitting practically stationary in front of the computer (what was termed “active couch potatoes”).

Standing every 20 minutes for a minute or so has been found to be helpful and is a great way to alleviate at least some of the negative outcomes from long hours of sitting. However, it has been found that standing for extended periods of time can be more damaging than sitting.

Does sitting have to be such a scourge? The answer is no.

Our bodies are built to sit. We need to be able to sit, including sitting for extended periods of time.

Is there a way to sit and avoid the many negative consequences resulting from long hours of sitting? The answer is YES and what we call Dynamic Healthy Sitting.

Our bodies are built for motion. We have more than 640 named muscles, 206 bones, and 360 joints that can perform practically limitless combinations of movement. Our brains contain roughly 85 billion neurons, an estimated trillion glial cells, and trillions of connections, all of which are there to organize and execute limitless variations of movement.

We are built to move. We need for our brain to be awake and to get our whole body moving. The problem with sitting is that most people, once seated, stop moving. Chairs are often designed so that users are pulled to lean onto the back of the chair and slouch. No longer sitting upright, the brain “goes to sleep” with no expectation of moving while sitting, or of getting up. It’s no wonder research is discovering that sitting is bad for our health.

However, it’s not the sitting itself that is the bad for us, it’s the way we sit that is the problem. It is the lack of movement and the reduction in brain activity while sitting that causes us trouble. This is also the good news, because anyone can wake up their brain and learn to sit in a healthy, dynamic way. The brain needs to stay awake, alert, and active; and the whole body is engaged.

In NeuroMovement® for Healthy Dynamic Sitting, you will wake up your brain and learn ways to move while sitting. You will discover how to get in and out of a chair with great ease and balance. You will train your brain to stay awake and keep your muscles moving while sitting. Sitting upright will become easier and more comfortable.

Your lower back, your spine, your shoulders, your neck, your hip joints, your knees, your feet, your chest, your head and your eyes will come to life and participate in the action of sitting. Aches and pains will diminish, your breathing will improve, as well as your thinking and creativity. You will be less likely to suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome and repetitive strain injuries. Getting up out of a chair will feel like springing onto your feet.

NeuroMovement® for Healthy Dynamic Sitting Lessons:
Lesson 1: Sitting in Chair – Spine and Head Movements
Lesson 2: Lying on Back – Gentle Rolling to Sitting.
Lesson 3: Sitting in Chair – Arching, Twisting and Bending
Lesson 4: Sitting in Chair – Effortless Standing Up
Lesson 5: Free Head And Neck In Sitting
Lesson 6: Freedom of Movement in All Directions

Program 4: NeuroMovement® For Healthy Breathing

NeuroMovement for Healthy Breathing

Breathing is life. Breathing fully and easily calms us down, gives us the energy we need to move, and helps us think more clearly and creatively.

Anyone who has ever experienced difficulty breathing, even for a few minutes, can remember the alarm and anxiety that accompanies it. No wonder. To expire is to die. To inspire is to infuse life by breathing, it is to cause something to be created.

Slow, deep, and consistent breathing has been shown to have benefits in treating conditions ranging from migraines and irritable bowel syndrome to anxiety disorders and pain. It potentially decreases inflammation, improving heart health, boosting your immune system, and perhaps even improving longevity.

The breath is also the source of our voice and can be an expression of ourselves and our power in the world. It is a well-known fact that free breathing can greatly enhance sexual experience and pleasure. Yet, so many people feel that they could and would like to breath better. Others have a medical condition that impacts the quality of their breathing.

Did you know that Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is the 4th leading cause of death in the United States? Would you like to improve your breathing? If your answer is yes, the GOOD NEWS is that it is possible.

With NeuroMovement® for Healthy Breathing, you will learn different ways to breathe well. You will gain the freedom to change how you breathe as you change what you do, what you feel, and what you think; as you increase your level of exertion and as your emotional state shifts.

With NeuroMovement® for Healthy Breathing, your brain will learn to organize your movements so that your breathing will happen spontaneously and fully.

NeuroMovement® for Healthy Breathing Lessons:
Lesson 1: Varying Positions: Freeing The Belly and Chest
Lesson 2: On Back and Belly: Exhaling Pushing The Belly Out
Lesson 3: Varying positions: Exhaling Pulling The Belly In
Lesson 4: Varying Positions: Finding Your Voice
Lesson 5: Varying Positions: Breathing And Imagination – Expanding The Lungs
Lesson 6: Varying Positions: Finding Your Dantian/Hara/Qi – Your Power Center

Each of these four programs has six separate movement lessons, the equivalent of the number of movement lessons in a two-day workshop.

What People Say About This Method…

After sustaining a sports injury, I pursued diverse therapies and medical approaches for five years before I discovered Anat Baniel and her tapes. To my amazement, I have made great progress in thirteen months with Anat’s approach. A combination of periodic office visits and regular use of her DVD programs has dramatically reduced my pain level and, more importantly, they have given me back my life. Once again I am able to hike along mountain trails and meet other physical challenges.

Dr. Rebbecca P.


It was Anat Baniel that guided me back to health and performing. Her fantastic intuition and powerful imagination has given her the greatest tools to help mankind. Always guiding with the utmost patience, while clearly presenting how powerful the mind and body creatively work when brought together in harmony.

~Daniel K., Musician


I absolutely love your new NeuroMovement for Whole Body Fitness videos. I just did lesson #3, the Pelvic Clock. So delicious!!!! I felt beat up and had a back ache from moving boxes and furniture for three days. After the lesson, my pain is gone and I feel ready to deal with the next portion of my move. Thank you so much!!!

~Birgit Jung-Schmitt, ABM Practitioner


My grandpa had a stroke 3 months ago and he couldn’t move his right side at all. The day after the first time I worked on him, he opened his right hand for the first time. I’ve been working with him for the past three months and he’s doing amazing! He is back home, walking without a walker, making 3 meals a day, he caught up on all the book work for our family company (a lot of writing with his right hand) and last weekend he even mowed one of our empty pastures! Oh and I should add, he’s 90 years old! From not being able to move to doing most the farm work he loves in three months! The doctors are amazed.

~Rachel VanOyen, ABM Practitioner


I went to an orthopedic surgeon because I couldn’t bear weight on my leg. He told me I needed a total knee replacement. I decided to go another route. I started the Anat Baniel Method with Jon. This method gave me instant relief, I couldn’t believe it!! Over the next four days I had four lessons and my leg felt better and better with each lesson. I could start bearing weight on it and the pain and swelling started to subside. Within two weeks I could walk again without pain, all the swelling was gone. I continue to do TMLs [transformational movement lessons] at home on CD. It’s been over two months now and my leg is pain free. I’m very thankful to Jon and the Anat Baniel Method for teaching me to have a better quality of life.

~Debbie


I was able to sleep all night long for the first time in seven years after just four movement lessons!

~Rick


When we first met at the workshop…exactly four years ago this week, I was in terrible pain and feeling very hopeless about the quality of my life. I felt that many of the activities I enjoyed had been taken from me because of my limited movement and pain.

With your encouragement, I took a leap and came to CA for some lessons and then took an even bigger leap and enrolled in the training. I remember when I introduced myself to the group at the first segment I said that I hoped that someday I would be able to play tennis again, something I have done since childhood, but I don’t really think I ever expected it to happen. I am so excited to tell you that in the last month I have begun playing tennis again!
