Whether you are currently considering becoming a Certified Breema Practitioner, are totally new to Breema, or are an experienced student, 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 Body Comfortable. As we become more comfortable, so do those around us, naturally and without force. We find that our own energy and vitality, as well as the recipient’s, increases. By working with this principle and its application in Breema bodywork, we establish and nurture an experiential relationship with it that can support us in all our interactions.
You can participate in the entire weekend, or attend just one or more 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 .
