AUTUMN 2024


Pranayama and EFT Tapping
This workshop will give you a great foundation and understanding to these amazing empowering techniques: Pranayama (breathing techniques or breath control) and EFT Tapping (Emotional Freedom Technique).
Pranayama
What is Pranayama? Pranayama is a relevant component of Yoga discipline. It is actually the fourth “limb” of the eight limbs of Hatha Yoga, which all yoga practitioners learn at their practice initiation. Pranayama and asana’s origin can be traced to Northern India over 5,000 years ago, both disciplines are mentioned in the ancient sacred texts called the Rig Veda. The Vedas are a set of four ancient sacred texts written in Sanskrit.
An easy dissection of Pranayama is: Prana is the vital energy, our breath. Yama is control or regulation.
In this workshop you will be introduced to the amazing Benefits of Pranayama practice, specifically the Pranayama techniques that can be used along your EFT Tapping practice.
Psychological benefits of Pranayama practice include: improved emotional responses, fatigue, stress, and reduced stress and anxiety. Stimulates the activations of mindfulness and being present.
Physical Benefits Pranayama practice include: improves sleep quality, reduces high blood pressure, improves lung function, energizes brain cells, enhances cognitive performance/brain function and can even help reduce cravings.

EFT Tapping
EFT Tapping is a mind-body therapy that draws on the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) practice of acupuncture, and it is used today as a self-help approach in modern psychology. It involves tapping key acupressure points (acupoints) on the hands, face, and body with your fingertips while focusing on uncomfortable feelings or concerns. In this workshop we also use affirmations to “analyze” and/or neutralize those feelings.
The Purpose of Tapping – EFT is to release stressful thoughts or sensations as well as to bring clarity to ruminating emotions. The concept is that we are not confined or defined by our emotions, rather they are a way to express ourselves and experience life.
Chronic sadness, anger, guilt, fear and addiction are the result from building, storing, and repeating emotional patterns created by an initial event (usually in childhood) and intensified by other experiences.

This introduction to EFT Tapping workshop will help you tap your worries away, find the cause, release your attachment from the initial response, remove the burden of carrying an emotional pattern that does not help you, and unstick yourself from the past.
Expectations:
Tapping involves physically tapping fingers on specific points on the body while saying and repeating phrases until a change is noticed.
Participants will learn and practice a sequence of specific points and phrases that can be applied to any issue. There will be an opportunity for participants to suggest specific issues to “tap on” during the workshop.
A regular EFT Tapping practice helps resolve ruminating insecurities and relieve everyday stress and anxiety. It also assists diminishing PTSD symptoms and improves performance.
