Hi! I'm Claire Conley. 

I’m an Anat Baniel Method® (ABM)

Neuromovement® and Feldenkrais

Method® Practitioner, with

advanced Certification ABM for Infants & Children®, ABM for High Performers® and ABM for Vitality and Anti-Aging® 


Through these practices and methods, I have dedicated my professional life to help people discover, or rediscover options in vital thinking, physical function and development.



Claire became aware of Anat Baniel and her remarkable work with children over 30 years ago when a dear friend had a baby boy born with global brain damage. Shortly thereafter, that baby started intensive lessons with Anat Baniel and subsequently achieved what no one would have even hoped for. Claire followed the progress of this child over the years and fueled her interest in the method by taking adult Feldenkrais® classes and private lessons from Anat Baniel and Marcy Lindheimer when they came to Chicago on a regular basis

She is passionate about the possibilities of what this NeuroMovement® work can do to transform the lives of people, of all ages. And because she, herself, personally experienced the healing power of this method after a devastating car accident, she has dedicated herself to bring about greater awareness of this method, which had been relatively unknown, to the larger public.

Since 2003, Claire has built one of the largest ABM children’s practices in the Midwest (US) and works in Chicago with special needs infants and children, as well as healthy infants and children. This practice also includes work with people who have chronic or situational pain issues: scoliosis, back pain, neck and shoulder pain. She has even helped adults, seniors, athletes, musicians, and artistic performers of all kinds to achieve enhanced performance.

Claire’s extensive work with infants and children has also been recognized in Europe, where she has been invited to give lessons for kids in many countries over the years.  These include: England, France, Istanbul and Denmark.
