Breema is a form of bodywork that has been described as a cross between partner yoga and Thai massage. The techniques may be utilized in either a practitioner-recipient mode or solo as "Self-Breema." The practice is intended to bring body and mind together,[1] and no strong exertions or muscular contortions are involved.[2] Breema utilizes "Nine Principles of Harmony" which frame the practice, and are applicable to every situation in life.[3] These principles are said to assist with mindfulness in daily life.

There are over 300 exact Breema sequences,[4] which are taught at the Breema Center in Oakland, CA, as well as by Certified Instructors.
