Notes:

  • Please note that practitioner certification is not guaranteed by completion of the hours requirements, and is awarded only after the Certification Committee is confident that a student is ready to safely and adequately practice and represent Breema. This means that the student must clearly show sufficient practical understanding of Breema’s Principles and philosophy in the way they practice Breema, and in the way they speak and write about Breema.
