My first experience with Breema:

My first experience of Breema was profound. I knew that I wanted more. For the first time, I experienced being present. Thought dropped away and I was at peace - complete. Looking back at that experience, I see that Breema has given me tools and experiences so that I have a way back to myself, to being present. By practice the path has become clearer and shorter.

What I wish to accomplish by offering Breema in my community is to support people the way I have been supported. Being present is something that has become somewhat fashionable as an idea, but there is little support for how to actually experience being. To bring that into daily life is even more remote. Breema offers that practical support.

Finding Breema and the Breema Center is the single most important event of my life. The teachings and experiences have given me access to my real life and for that I am grateful beyond words.


My Feldenkrais experience:

I had a serious horse accient in my teens and by the time I was 25 I was in chronic pain. I felt old - what I had heard of about old. It was scary. Nothing seemed to help for long- chiropractic, massage, bodywork, rolfing, exercise...-they all helped for a while, but didn't last. I was to the place where I could not be in any position and be comfortable.

I read about Feldenkrais® in a book when I was at my mom's for Christmas. When I returned home I found a class and started doing lessons on a daily basis. I felt better immediately and after awhile, the pain stopped reappearing. I was thrilled. I got my youth back. Later I went on to do a training, then let it all go for years, except for an occasional lesson.

As my son grew up and moved on, I have picked up some old dreams and passions and am now in full swing with somatic education again. Some patterns of misuse have left their traces and I am grateful to have the tools to find comfort and grace, mobility and strength. I just lie on the floor and remind myself of the options.
