Transformation Through the Art of Breema




An upcoming weekend retreat at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Movement from April 20 to 22 will provide a fulfilling entry into Breema’s philosophy, self-care exercises and bodywork. Taught by the Director of the Breema Center, Jon Schreiber, DC, and Matthew Tousignant, MA, CMT, the workshop is an opportunity to learn a distinctive approach to establishing a true body-mind connection.

Participants will use nurturing touch, tension-relieving stretches and rhythmic movements to catalyze ongoing and revolutionary changes in their relationship with themselves, other people and all other aspects of their lives. As the mind, feelings and body become more unified, harmonious and natural, participants can begin to discover the real meaning of health—harmony with existence and a greater potential to live a more purposeful and meaningful life.

As suggested by the subtitle, Building Connection and Presence, the workshop is appropriate for health practitioners that plan to apply what they learn with patients or clients, and for anyone else that wants to enhance their own self-care or to practice with family and friends. All are welcome to participate in this floor-based practice. Continuing education credits are available for massage therapists and social workers.

Cost: $250 plus lodging. For more information, call 510-428-0937 or visit Breema.info/kripalu.
