Breema is a practical, truly holistic approach to becoming present by unifying body, mind and feelings. It consists of two body-based components - Breema bodywork and Self-Breema exercises - and nine universal principles. Practiced fully clothed on a comfortably padded floor, Breema uses natural rhythmic movements that are both nurturing and energizing. By practicing Breema and its principles, you can develop a receptive mind, supportive feelings, and a vital body. The workshop is appropriate for health practitioners wishing to apply what they learn with their patients, the public wishing to practice with family members, and anyone wishing to enhance their own self-care. Nov 8-9, Sat-Sun: Sat, 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m., Sun, 9:30 a.m.-1:45 p.m. Instructor: Jon Schreiber. (10 CEUs, PDAs, CMEs)

Please Bring: Bring a blanket. Yoga mats provided.  Wear loose-fitting comfortable clothing. You need to be comfortable sitting and working on a padded floor.

Description: Breema is based on a profound understanding of the underlying unity of all life, expressed through the Nine Principles of Harmony. The atmosphere of a Breema workshop is deeply nourishing and revitalizing. Through Breema bodywork and Self-Breema you can explore and experience first-hand the Nine Principles which can be applied in any activity or situation. The Nine Principles are: body comfortable, no extra, firmness and gentleness, full participation, mutual support, no judgment, single moment/single activity, no hurry/no pause, and no force.

Practicing Breema can help you to be present and bring greater harmony to all aspects of your life, as well as nurture yourself in the midst of life’s demands.

Upon completion of the seminar you will be able to:

  • List at least three of Breema’s Nine Principles of Harmony
  • Discuss your practical relationship with one of the principles and how the principle can apply to your daily life
  • Perform four Self-Breema exercises that can be used for self-care
  • Explain the relevance of Self-Breema to increasing vitality and supporting overall wellness
  • Perform a Breema bodywork sequence presenting a full body treatment while demonstrating an emphasis on care for one’s own body (being present in the process)
  • Explain the relationship between the Breema principles, bodywork, and self-care
  • Demonstrate the Breema Touch
