In order to have a higher quality of life, moving your body in an ideal way is key. Every move we make and how we pay attention to the way movement feels in our body impacts our brain. Thanks to neuroscience and the discovery of "brain plasticity" – your brain can change for the better until you no longer walk this earth. We now know the “secret” for achieving greater vitality, mobility, better memory, overall wellness, and joy lies in your brain’s ability to wake up and create new connections and patterns.
Movement is the language of the brain. Using Anat Baniel's Nine Essentials we can tap the brain's enormous potential for positive change and eliminate stress, reduce aches and pain, increase strength and flexibility and create new possibilities in our lives.
For years, I had the good fortune of working with Anat Baniel Method® (ABM) NeuroMovement® practitioners here in Colorado. I saw firsthand the lives they transformed with ABM, including my own daughter. I went to one of Anat's work shops to learn more about the method. From that moment on I knew I had to become part of this important work and signed up to become a practitioner. Just as I started my training in the fall of 2017, I faced my own struggle with mobility because of an ankle injury that required surgery. After surgery, my recovery was languishing. PT was helping in some ways, but creating pain in other parts of my ankle that had been pain-free prior to surgery. I had one lesson with an ABM practitioner and I have walked without pain in my surgical foot ever since.There is nothing like experiencing this work firsthand. Now, I have my own practice. I invite you to come see me and experience your own transformation!
Special Needs Children: I work with children with special needs such as:
Transformational Movement Lessons (TMSs): TMLs are verbally guided movement lessons in a group setting. These lessons can lead to transformational outcomes in improved flexibility, strength, pain relief, mental clarity, balance, vitality, and general well-being.
Work Shops: By incorporating a combination of TMLs, Functional Synthesis Lessons, and education about the Anat Baniel Method®, work shops are a fun and more substantive way to learn about this modality.
