About Breema Intensives

A Breema Intensive is an optimal opportunity to enter into and practice “the art of being present” and to gain first-hand experience of Breema’s Nine Principles of Harmony. In each class, you’ll learn and practice Self-Breema exercises and Breema bodywork sequences that help to create a new unified relationship between the body, mind and feelings. You don’t need to have any prior bodywork experience. A typical day has two 3-hour class sessions.

The Intensive will include an in-depth introduction to the Nine Principles of Harmony. Jon Schreiber, the Breema Center’s director, and author of several books about Breema, will be instructing classes daily. As we practice Breema movements and sequences we can deepen our understanding of the principles through body-mind connection. Breema gives us a new education in which we learn, first through our body, that the principles are a natural way to relate to ourselves, to other people, and to everything in life.
Both new and experienced students from around the world come each year to study at Breema Intensives and to benefit from Breema’s practical approach to living harmoniously. Breema Intensives offer support for moving from complication to simplicity, no matter what conditions life presents.

How can i use what i learn once the course is over?
By working with body-mind connection in the bodywork and Self-Breema exercises, we become more and more familiar with the taste of presence. The practical tools and principles of Breema can be integrated and applied in any profession and in all activities of daily life. The art of being present can be practiced and experienced everywhere, and helps us bring greater harmony to all our relationships.

"As I looked around the classroom at many others ranging in age from their twenties through their seventies, I saw that I had expected my classmates to be massage therapists and personal trainers. During later conversations, I found out that I had partnered with a carpenter, a technical writer, an artist, a physician, even a San Francisco tour guide. Here was a group of people who were there for their own self-understanding, with an interest not only in the health of the physical body, but also in practical support for living daily life in harmony with oneself and one's environment."
