If we approach parenting as a journey of growth, we can use our interactions with our children as a way to learn more about ourselves and our expectations. This attitude creates a mutually supportive dynamic that facilitates personal growth for parent and child. Breema and the Nine Principles of Harmony support us to approach parenting with willingness, offering tools like No Force, Firmness and Gentleness, and Mutual Support. With them, we can meet children in any stage of their development with open-heartedness and an interest in increasing harmony in the relationship. The Nine Principles also show us the value of self-acceptance when the journey is challenging.

Join Alexis Mulhauser and Alexandra Johnson, with special guest Dr. Jon Schreiber, to explore how we can come to a more balanced and open posture toward our children and ourselves. We will learn self-care exercises that can bring body and mind together at any point in the day, and simple partner bodywork exchanges that can be practiced with other family members to support calm and greater connection in the relationship.


Jon Schreiber, D. C., director of the Breema Center and Breema Clinic in Oakland, California, has been teaching Breema in the U.S. and internationally since 1980. He has presented Breema to interested groups in the fields of medicine, psychology, bodywork, exercise, holistic health, and personal growth. His numerous articles and books focus on the universal and practical philosophy of Breema.

Alexandra Johnson, MD, is a family physician and mother of 5. She approaches parenting through the Nine Principles of Harmony and has found that this increases the ability to listen and respond to what is needed for parent and child, in the moment. Dr. Johnson is a Staff Instructor at the Breema Center, and has an integrative medical practice in Oakland, CA.

Alexis Mulhauser has 18 years of experience studying and teaching movement, including Breema, yoga, martial arts, and dance. She is a Staff Instructor at the Breema Center in Oakland, CA, and also teaches health and wellness workshops, as well as pre- and peri-natal yoga and dance.  By applying Breema and the Nine Principles of Harmony throughout her pregnancy and delivery, Alexis benefited by discovering an inner atmosphere of self-acceptance. She has found this teaching to be an essential tool to support and nourish her daily life as a mother.

The Breema Center is approved to offer continuing education for massage practitioners and bodyworkers by the NCBTMB (#145251-00), registered nurses by the California BRN (#03852), and LMFTs, LCSWs, and LPCCs by the CAMFT (#128568).
