Breema bodywork and Self-Breema exercises facilitate a direct experience of harmony and unity. The body responds to this experience by releasing tension. Our mind and feelings respond to it by letting go of fear and anxiety, as they connect to a deep inner knowledge of the essentially benevolent nature of life. The desire for meaning is reawakened, and with it, a new enthusiasm for living life.
In the atmosphere created in a Breema workshop, we experience a tangible sense of belonging and well-being that nourishes the body, mind, and feelings.
We will learn Self-Breema exercises and partner bodywork, and establish a first-hand relationship to Breema's Nine Principles of Harmony that can help us deepen our understanding of ourselves and the meaning and purpose of our life on this Earth.

I am a Family Physician, and have been a Breema Practitioner and Instructor for over 20 years. I have found Breema's non-judgmental atmosphere to be invaluable in working with any health condition.

Kevin has been studying Breema since 2003. After studying several mind-body modalities over the years, he was happy to discover Breema. He was drawn to the practice as he found it very useful outside of the classroom in everyday life. It is also a very simple practice focusing on registering the breath and the weight of the body.
Kevin lives in Santa Cruz with his wife and 5 children. He enjoys yoga, hiking, body boarding and travel.
Jamie found Breema by a stroke of good luck 1991, in British Columbia, Canada. Taking the long slow train, she became an instructor in 2011, and continues to study and practice this life nourishing modality (now on a more steady train). She lives with her family in Colorado where she manages a regenerative farm.
