Anat Baniel Method Practitioner based on the work of Moshe Feldenkrais. This work will bring you to a place where you learn, and use these lessons to improve your life. Improve your movement, be on the cutting edge of brain plasticity, turning on the learning switch and making life more joyful!

Two ways to learn


Functional Synthesis (FS)

Is a learning-based and primarily nonverbal movement lesson for those who require individualized and personalized attention. These lessons are used with a broad spectrum of people from those with physical limitations and discomfort, including neurological and musculoskeletal problems, to athletes and performing artists

Lessons are done with the student lying on a table, standing, or sitting. The practitioner gently touches or moves the student in a variety of ways to facilitate the student’s awareness and stimulate organic learning and vitality. Through touch, the practitioner partially discloses or hints at a functional motor pattern, and the student’s nervous system responds with altered muscular responses. Gradually, with repetitions and variations, the student assembles or synthesizes-mostly at an unconscious level- a new neuromuscular image of movement which can later be translated into active performance. At the end of a session the practitioner helps the student to integrate the learning in everyday life through alternative movements based upon the lesson’s functional theme and through verbal suggestions.

Transformational Movement Lessons (TML)

Is a verbally directed technique designed for individual and group work. These lessons incorporate active movement explorations that incorporate thinking, cues for sensory attention, imagination and various informative and suggestive materials. A typical lesson lasts about an hour and combines thematically linked movements. Lesson themes may include developmental movements such as rolling, crawling, and standing up; functions such as posture and breathing; systematic explorations of the kinetic possibilities of the joint and muscle groups; and explorations of body and mind relations – feelings, emotions and clarity of thinking.

The initial movements are usually very small with an emphasis on ease, comfort, and learning so that gradually one becomes aware of how the musculature, skeleton, and entire personality are involved in every movement. From the smallest beginnings of movements that grow into greater complexity, magnitude and speed. The result is learning to move with greater efficiency and less effort – with a feeling of ease, possibility and satisfaction.



Movement is the language that communicates with the brain, it is there that the learning switch is turned on!I travel the world doing lessons with children with special needs, adults, elite athletes and musicians!
