Here is a link to a great interview with Norman Doidge on brain plasticity and healing the brain.  It is long but worth the listen!  He talks about the role of Feldenkrais and Anat Baniel Method in healing the brain!  For more information about Feldenkrais in Calgary contact Susinn at 403-919-1881.  Susinn is a guild certified Feldenkrais practitioner and has studied with Anat Baniel for many years.

Why would you want Feldenkrais/ABM

You are probably wondering why you would want to do Feldenkrais Lessons or Anat Baniel Method (ABM) lessons.  The reasons are many and are very individual.  I will list some of the more common reasons people use these amazing methods:

1.  you want to be pain free
2.  you want to move better; whether it is improving your golf score or just being able to bound up the stairs with the grace and ease you had when you were younger!
3.  you want to find the calm place within you that seems to have gone far away
4.  you want to improve your thinking; we now know these methods are great ways to improve the function of your brain.  Improve your clarity, memory, and creative thinking.
5.  you want to sleep better
6.  you want to improve your mood
7.  you want to access your own ability to improve and learn
8.  you want to be the best you that you can be!

How the brain heals

Norman Doidge has just released his new book called 'The Brain's way to Healing'.  It is a great read and he highly recommend Feldenkrais and Anat Baniel work for healing the brain.

movement and the brain

People often ask what I do.  I tell them that I use movement to change the brain.  But it is specific movement: movement with attention, slow movement, subtle movement, movement with lots of variation, movement with attention, movement without goals.  These are the essentials for neuromovement.  Anat Baniel has called these aspects of movement the 'essentials'.  

Did you know that a lot of the brain is busy with movement.  This makes a great opportunity to access the brain through movement!  

I am in Calgary and have an office where I see children and adults and I give Feldenkrais and Anat Baniel Method lessons.

Good book about CP and the Feldenkrais Method

I just finished reading 'Ways out of Cerebral Palsy During Infancy and Early Childhood' by Paul Doron Doroftei. He gives a good description of what it feels like to be inside his body and what his experience was when he got lessons from Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais.
