My teacher and mentor.


Anat Baniel is my teacher and mentor. She is the author of two highly acclaimed books, Move Into Life: The Nine Essentials for Lifelong Vitality and Kids Beyond Limits. She has a background in clinical psychology and dance, and was a close professional associate of Dr. Moshé Feldenkrais for over a decade. After graduating from his training program in 1977, she began working full time as a teacher in his method. In 1986 she founded her own training organization and has been involved in training over 1000 practitioners during her career.  

In addition to her training programs she maintains a busy practice at The Anat Baniel Method center in San Rafael, California, as well as teaching workshops internationally and is a highly sought-after guest for interviews and events around the country.
