Being Right Now Everywhere Every Moment Myself Actually
Breema, a dynamic contemplative movement practice potentiates body-mind connection as a catalyst for self-care and transformation in relationship. Its commonsense wisdom guides us to support the body’s instinctive healing energy, nurturing what is vital instead of focusing on symptoms of illness or imbalance.

Breema’s exercises use nurturing touch, tension-relieving stretches, and natural movements based on nine universal Principles of Harmony to foster physical, mental, and emotional balance and availability. Issues including fatigue, stress, self-criticism and burnout, are mitigated, while empathy, acceptance, non-judgment, and an atmosphere of aliveness are nurtured.
