Learning and Brain Change are Keys to Better Performance

I am now training for the next Olympic events. As extra benefits I have noticed that my running has become easier, my performance on exercise machines has improved and my recovery time is easier and shorter. All this without additional training!

For any high performer—a musician, an athlete, a brilliant teacher, a CEO, a writer, or a sculptor—to keep performing at a high level, it requires continued learning, change, and progress in the area of expertise.

However, it is much harder for the high performer to make meaningful improvements in performance than it is for the beginner. This requires the brain to resume the process of increasing refinement, richness, and complexity of connections which lead to transformational breakthroughs in performance.

High performers cannot continue to rely on the already existing successful patterns and habits. Repetitions tend to groove more deeply the already existing brain patterns—both the effective patterns and the limiting ones.

I can’t say enough good things about Anat Baniel’s work. I honestly believe it’s made the difference between continuing my competitive running career and retiring prematurely.

Move Beyond Limitations with the Anat Baniel Method

With the NeuroMovement® approach of the Anat Baniel Method and its Nine Essentials, the brain is awakened so that high performers shift from their habitual and automatic actions and very quickly discover new ways that catapult them to a new levels of performance never before experienced.

For high performers, it is an exhilarating experience! Rather than getting into a rut, they experience renewed empowerment and delight in the here and now. They are often surprised by how much better they can do. A common added bonus is the alleviation of aches or pains they might have and the infusion of renewed energy and enthusiasm about what it is that they do.

For the high performer seeking new breakthroughs, we recommend an Anat Baniel Method program that consists of a combination of private sessions, at home DVD and CD programs, and occasional participation in our workshops.

Working with Anat Baniel is a total pleasure and exhilarating experience, especially for the performing musician who quickly benefits through her powerful work.
