Program Description

NeuroMovement is a cutting-edge, science-based approach to healing that uses the brain’s natural ability to change itself for the better.

From our earliest movements and experiences, our brain forms neural patterns that are expressed as thoughts, feelings, and actions. As early as our teenage years, this process slows down, leading to many of our limitations.

The good news is we can use neuroplasticity—the fact the brain can still develop new neural pathways at any age—to rid us of aches and pains, and get us to much higher levels of performance and quality of life.

Guided by NeuroMovement creator Anat Baniel, you will learn the Nine Essentials for Lifelong Vitality® in easy, pleasurable, fun, and safe movement lessons tailored to specific parts of the body that provide your brain with new information for greater flexibility, strength, and mental clarity. As you map the range of movement of each area more fully to the brain, you wake up your brain to new ways of being, often reducing or eliminating pain altogether.

All levels and ages are welcome and leave with effective, practical tools to move beyond pain and limitation to vitality and well-being.
