Weekend Workshop/Practitioner Certification
In-person


The Breema Center will begin its new 12-Month Practitioner Certification Track* with a weekend that is open to all who are interested. Whether you are currently considering becoming a Certified Breema Practitioner or you are totally new to Breema, this weekend is a perfect opportunity to nourish your body, mind, and feelings through Breema bodywork, Self-Breema exercises, and Breema's universally applicable practical philosophy.

In four unique 3-hour workshops, we will introduce Breema's Nine Principles of Harmony, with a particular emphasis on the principle of Mutual Support. Mutual Support is the foundation of every positive relationship, and the key to successful practitioner-client relationships. We will gain direct experience by working with this essential principle, and exploring its application in Breema bodywork.

You can participate in the entire weekend, or attend just one or a few of the four workshops. Pre-registration is required. Call or email the Breema Center for more information. 

We follow current California State and Alameda County COVID guidelines.

CE is available for massage therapists and bodyworkers, nurses, LMFTs, LCSWs, LPCCs, and LEPs. $10 fee for processing

.

*The 12-Month Practitioner Certification Track consists of one weekend a month for a year, with some flexibility for those who cannot attend each workshop or are outside the Bay Area.
