EFT tapping in groups

Are you part of a group that struggles with the same difficulties?
Do you find that simply talking about those problems doesn’t bring permanent solutions or the relief that you seek?

Working in groups can be a powerful way to access change within you. It can often bring new perspectives to help you see your situation a new light, resulting in new solutions. Furthermore, working in groups can ease a sense of isolation as it can build connection with the other members. The same as individual sessions, group sessions and workshops are also completely confidential. Attending a group session is also a cost effective way of accessing support for yourself.

EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) is a powerful yet simple and effective way to get to the roots of stresses we carry, reducing or eliminating negative feelings, so we can be empowered to move forward.

Private yoga classes with Falguni

Private yoga classes
Alignment based, beginner and intermediate levels.
Private yoga classes for up to two students.

Working individually with you provides the opportunity to support your specific needs and goals. Consistent yoga practice can help release tight hamstrings, rounded shoulders, an aching lower back or a stiff neck.

Do you go to the gym, or run, or play a sport? Yoga can help to stretch and align your body to complement your regular physical activities (a yoga practice will, in fact, enhance your physical performance). Practicing yoga brings more awareness to sensation, action and movement, enhancing connection, strength and flexibility.

I will lead you through a moderately paced practice to enable a fuller exploration of each pose, while releasing any tension held in the muscles and connective tissue of the body.

The class will include physical poses to enhance flexibility, strength and balance, breathing exercises to cleanse, detox and let go of stress, and some mindfulness meditation to access focus and calm. Instructed with props and options to support your individual practice.

Venue: The Body Group
14th Floor, Prosperous Building, 48-52 Des Voeux Road, Central, HK [directions ]

To book your space: call 2167 7305 or e-mail.

About me teaching yoga:
An avid practitioner of yoga, I love to share my experience and knowledge with others. I see yoga as a way to connect inwards and relate to ourselves in a world that is constantly asking us to look to the external.

Yoga, for me, is a simple and effective way to release stress and tension stored in the body. Not just the physical, but also the mental patterns and emotional experiences we tend to store. These are the negative experiences we don’t or can’t process, which get pushed into the unconscious and can, over time, manifest physically.

Working with emotional and mental health as a counsellor, and with physical symptoms as a META-Health coach, I see in clients as well as in my own body, how this connection between mind and body is very real. Age old wisdom and philosophy has talked about it for thousands of years, and science is now proving it.

Having developed a consistent yoga practice since 2004, yoga has been my anchor, my release, my journey, my home away from home. I feel blessed to share my experience and welcome you to my classes.


I dedicate my path of yoga to my mother, my first yoga teacher and inspiration. Thank you mum, for your love and teachings.

Breath Work

Breath Work

Breath awareness is an integral part of releasing stress and anxiety.

When we feel anxious, panicky, or even unconsciously stressed, we tend to take short breaths (called shallow breathing or chest breathing). As a result, our body doesn’t receive enough oxygen, which limits blood flow to important organs and creates tension in our muscles and joints.
This is a physiological reaction to perceived external danger, so when we continuously take shallow breaths we are actually sending signals to our body that we are under threat.

Anything from being stuck in a traffic jam or standing in a long queue, to feeling claustrophobic in a crowded space or even remembering a past traumatic event, can make us anxious and put us into stress mode. Our minds can perceive these situations as threatening/stressful and our body reacts to our thought patterns.

It is imperative to start becoming aware of when we are putting ourselves into stress mode, as these are usually subconscious reactions.

When we breathe full, deep breaths using the full capacity of our lungs, not only are we nourishing our cells with more oxygen, but we are sending calming signals to our body. In the same way that stressful thoughts in our subconscious mind can create negative changes in our physical body, initiating conscious changes (breathing) in our body can create a calmer state of mind.

Stressful thoughts = shallow breath & tightness in muscles
Deep, full breaths = calmer mind + calmer body

To explain the intrinsic connection between the body and mind, Dr. James Gordon, Director and Founder, Center for Mind-Body Medicine, says : “the brain and peripheral nervous system, the endocrine and immune systems, and indeed, all the organs of our body and all the emotional responses we have, share a common chemical language and are constantly communicating with one another.”

There are many breathing techniques and exercises that we can use to release stress from our body & mind. The first step, as always, is to be mindful, to become aware. Only then can we pause and step back before we can breathe our way to a sense of calm and to new perspectives.

“Correct and conscious breath is the first and most simple step toward releasing stress and anxiety.”

  • Stressful thoughts = shallow breath & tightness in muscles
  • Deep, full breaths = calmer mind + calmer body

Harvard cardiologist Herbert Benson, MD, identified the flip side of the stress response, which he called the “relaxation response.” Benson demonstrated that meditation, yoga, and other relaxation techniques can bring about physiological changes including a lower heart rate, lower breathing rate, and decreased muscle tension along with positive changes in brain waves. Mind-body techniques that elicit this relaxation response have been successful in treating many stress-related disorders.

Correct and conscious breath is the first and most simple step toward releasing stress and anxiety.


Try this exercise:
To find out how you are breathing, place one hand on your chest and the other on your abdomen. On every inhale, notice your chest rising. Notice your abdomen too – does it move?

  • If it doesn’t, then your breath is shallow.
  • If your abdomen moves in on an inhale, your breath is inverted (and still shallow).
  • If your chest as well as your abdomen rise when you breathe in, you are breathing good, relaxed breaths – well done!

If you find it difficult to breathe into your abdomen, try this:

  • Try to imagine that your abdomen is like a balloon
  • As you breathe in slowly, let the air fill up your abdomen as if you are filling a balloon with air, letting your abdomen rise before your chest
  • As you exhale, let your chest go in then your abdomen, as if deflating the balloon
  • Do this exercise 3 – 4 times and feel your body become calm.

There are many breathing techniques and exercises that we can use to release stress from our body & mind. The first step, as always, is to be mindful, to become aware. Only then can we pause and step back before we can breathe our way to a sense of calm and to new perspectives.

Counselling

Counselling

I provide individual and group counselling to adult individuals of all cultures and ethnicities.

I hold a Masters in Counselling from Monash University, Australia. My additional training includes Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), and Matrix Reimprinting. I work using an integrative and holistic approach, combining mindfulness based therapies with techniques that build awareness of the mind-body-social causes of problematic issues.

These techniques, coupled with talk therapy, enhance the therapeutic process so you are able to feel immediate positive shifts in your daily life.

My approach is to create a safe, supportive, non-judgemental environment so you can voice your concerns and difficulties while feeling heard. I am fully invested in helping you to connect to your inner resources so you can cope with and resolve the issues you are experiencing.

We will work together to explore and identify any limiting issues with the clear intent of achieving goals. I believe that everyone’s issues are unique, and the sessions will be tailored to your specific needs.

I offer long or short term counselling, and specialise in personal crisis, trauma and confidence. I work with a wide range of issues including stress, depression, anger, self-esteem, sexuality, job related stress, phobias, grief or loss, old or recent trauma, unresolved childhood issues and any emotional blocks to self-awareness and personal development.

A member of The Hong Kong Professional Counselling Association (HKPCA) and the Australian Counselling Association (ACA), I adhere to their code of ethics.

“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning , but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”
