--Want more money?
--Dread looking at you bills? Tired of just living paycheck to paycheck?
--Worry about where to get more money?
--Want more money to upgrade your life (new car, home, vacation)?

What's happening?

--Traditional beliefs and old stories about money keep us stuck in a lower vibration than the empowered version of who we really are.
--No matter your money stress, tapping can work for you!

What you can expect from Energy Tapping:
--Tapping is a self use technique you can use in the moment to change and reprogram your stress about money.
--Tapping can shift the old money stories you tell yourself, that keep you in lack.
--Tapping can spark new thoughts that create new beliefs that open pathways to receiving more money.

Energy Investment: $20 per person or $30 per family. 10% discount for Little Buddhas Yoga Unlimited Members! Thursday, October 18 7-8pm

What you'll need:
Bring a yoga mat or towel and wear comfy clothes, there will be some light energy exercise stretches we'll do together at the start of the class.

Join Suzanne as she guides the group with grounding energy medicine exercises, then with a group meridian energy "tap-along" to release old money stories, beliefs and stress, and then begin to shift energy towards sparking new ideas, thoughts and beliefs that bring the flow of financial abundance.

What's Energy Tapping?

Our bodies are energy and meridians are rivers of energy that flow through the body. When we think, the body feels, that's what the mind body connection is about. Meridian Tapping is a simple technique that uses your fingers to tap on specific meridian points that promotes the energy to circulate. When we tap, we shift the flow of energy, which in turn shifts how we feel and experience our thoughts. Shifting away from money stress can free the energy to flow in a new direction.

Meridian Tapping can be used anywhere, anytime to provide in the moment relief and shifting of energy. It’s a living skill that can be used to decrease stress and worry and increase self worth and self confidence. When we hold onto stress, the energy system of the body stays in a state of overwhelm, which tapping shifts to restore balance. Tapping can be used to address and resolve nearly every stress that life can throw at us.

What’s Tapping?
Stress is the body’s reaction to perception. Our bodies are energy and meridians are rivers of energy that flow through the body. When we think, the body feels, that's what the mind body connection is about. Meridian Tapping is a simple technique that uses your fingers to tap on specific meridian points to disrupt the connection between the mind and body. Tapping shifts the flow of energy, which in turn shifts how you feel and experience your thoughts. Shifting away from stress can free the energy to flow in a new direction.
Meridian Tapping can be used anywhere, anytime to provide in the moment relief and shifting of energy. It’s a living skill that can be used to decrease stress and worry and increase self worth and self-confidence. When we hold onto stress, the energy system of the body stays in a state of overwhelm, which tapping shifts to restore balance. Tapping can be used to address and resolve nearly every stress that life can throw at us.

She is a certified sports nutritionist (CISSN) and has recently taking an additional position as the sports nutritionist for an international online training program platform, Paddle Monster. Additionally, she has been an extremely competitive athlete in the standup paddleboard and surf scene for the last 5 years.

Mary E. Wright began Yoga 21 years ago while seeking a path to meditation. She wanted to learn to sit in stillness and Yoga allowed her the space to sit physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually in quiet meditation. She had always been an athlete as a child and an extremely physically active adult. Teaching her Fun & Tumble Gymnastics Program since 1992 both recreational and competitive Gymnasts in Kansas, Germany, Washington State, Texas and now Florida has been a fundamental part of her life, teaching and impacting children’s lives.

Mary returned to college and pursued several degrees in Civil & Environmental Engineering from the University of Miami. She was a published researcher while receiving her BS, MS and was honored a full Fellow for her Ph.D. in Civil & Environmental Engineering. Her life shifted from an academic track to a full time career as a wife and mother during this time embracing some personal tragedies. 

Charging a new life as a single mother 6 years ago she began a home based studio teaching kids yoga and gymnastics. During this time she became a daily YOGINI having a committed daily practice and picked up her surfboard all of which emerged a Sunshine Mary. The combination of yoga and surfing taught me that loving and taking care of myself allows me to completely be there for myself and others, as a mother, sister, teacher and friend.

Little Buddhas Yoga(named after my two Buddhas) emerged in 2014 & is now in a beautiful studio located in downtown Oakland Park. Mary E. Wright is now certified and teaches Yoga, Pilates, Power Plates (Whole Body Vibration), Fitness (TRX & CrossCore), Healthy MOMS Perinatal Trained, Vedic Thai Yoga Bodywork & Massage, and Mediation & Visualization. Her commitment and love of movement is what drives her today! As Mary’s dreams have changed so has her paths, she is an excellent example that anything is possible. “I love what I do and I see the body as an engineered structure in which I can help to create, maintain and find your fullest potential physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.”
