Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement®
Private one-on-one sessions are called Functional Synthesis® lessons (FS). They usually take place on a special table, but could also be done in a chair or a mat on the floor. Each lesson is carried out by Bev Manchester, who is an Anat Baniel Method® Neuromovement® Certified Practitioner, and is specifically tailored to the needs of the student. Clients are called students because the session is designed to bring about physical and cognitive transformation through experiential learning. The lessons are generally 35-45 minutes in length as this is the optimal amount of time for the brain to learn new patterns without exhausting the nervous system.
Lessons consist of slow, deliberate movements facilitated by Bev. Student comfort is of primary importance, and as such, is suitable for all ages and abilities. At this time, Bevs’ practice is focusing on adults.
