WHY & HOW DO WE GET GREAT OUTCOMES WITH ABM?
We work with the brain and the nervous system, focusing on enhancing brain function
The movements we have our students participate in is not so much exercise as a conversation between the body and the brain - this produces novel neuropathways (or re-introduces dormant pathways) and facilitates new possibilities for movement
Participants are called upon to think, listen and to feel in an entirely new way
Movement is the language of the brain: the slow mindfulness of the movements wakes up the brain and creates new neural connections and opportunities to learn and change the brain
Improved strength and flexibility.
Elimination of aches and pains.
Improved mental clarity.
Increased sense of overall well-being and vitality.
The opportunity to push past your disability and truly reach your potential.

TRANSFORMATIONAL MOVEMENT SESSIONS
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 wellbeing.
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.
