At Body & Brain centers, we strive to provide some of the best holistic exercise and meditation practices available. Body & Brain is also a supporter of a number of organizations working on important social, educational, and public health issues. One of those organizations is IBREA Foundation (IBREA), a 501(c)3 NGO in consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council. IBREA is working to foster peace in the public schools of El Salvador through holistic education. Recently, IBREA president and founder Ilchi Lee received El Salvador's presidential award for the benefits his Brain Education curriculum and IBREA Foundation have brought to schools there.
IBREA is also doing important work closer to home. From August 4th-10th, 2019, IBREA will be holding a World Peace Leadership program in New York, allowing students and young professionals the chance to gain valuable experience with a non-profit organization working in the field of diplomacy and activism.
IBREA, like Body & Brain, operates on the belief that large-scale change depends on change at the individual level. Specifically, each of us must cultivate health, happiness, and peace in ourselves if we want to see peace in the world at large. IBREA's World Peace Leadership program combines experiential training in Brain Education techniques as well as a valuable introduction to working with the United Nations.

Body & Brain Yoga works to empower individuals to achieve health, happiness, and peace by teaching practical and effective holistic exercise and meditation practices. Body & Brain is a longtime supporter of IBREA, not just because they share a founder in Ilchi Lee, but because both organizations utilize the Brain Education curriculum to help people develop their innate human capacity for health, well-being, optimal achievement, and peacefulness through better self-management of the brain. Body & Brain is proud of it's commitment to creating a healthier, happier, more peaceful world through yoga, qigong, breathing and meditation, and by supporting the non-profit and educational work of organizations like IBREA.
