This online event begins at 9:00am PDT, 12:00pm EDT, 18:00 CEST, 19:00 IDT.


“Every energy that exists in the universe exists within you. Instead of trying to understand this vast, beginningless, endless universe, you can study yourself, because you are a miniature universe. Studying yourself can give you a key to the whole of Existence, because you are subject to the same laws and influences as the entirety is.”   — from The Four Relationships by Jon Schreiber

Practicing Breema bodywork and Self-Breema, our body is seen as a laboratory through which we can study ourselves, giving us the possibility of letting go of extra—concepts, judgments, and reactions acquired through the random influences we've been subject to.

Self-Breema exercises teach us body-mind connection through the registration of breath, weight, and movement, giving us support for being present and for studying ourselves in relation to Breema’s Nine Principles. Coming to the present moment, we can taste unity, as body, mind, and feelings work together.

We will learn a variety of Self-Breema exercises, taught by a rotating staff of  Instructors from the Breema Center and around the country.

This free class is offered as part of Bay Area Dance Week 2024.
