Being with the Body, We Are Supported - Practice and Principles for Being Yourself

Alexis Mulhauser at the Breema Center in Oakland, CA

Being more comfortable, natural, and relaxed begins with connection to the body. Being with the body, you are supported to be yourself.

Principles: Body Comfortable, No Judgment

This class is for anyone who is interested in being more comfortable and connected in their body, including people who don’t necessarily have a lot of experience with bodywork, movement, or somatic practices. It is also for people who want to feel more comfortable in connection with other people. Every human being has a body, and it is through connection with this body that we experience ourselves and our deepest connection with life. We will be working individually, in pairs, and as a group. Please dress comfortably and wear socks, and come prepared for light movement, touch, and bodywork exchange.

  • $20 per class 
  • Open to all levels

For more information or to register in person, call 510-428-0937 or email

Please wear comfortable long pants and socks. No fragrances, please.
