Ohad Azoulay, Tagaya Method and the Wisdom of Elements
Tagaya is designed to connect you with your strength, with the power of life flowing through your cells, and not only connect but to enhance your energy so it can improve your skills, so that you will become the best you can be as the person you are, so that you'll feel better with yourself and know you are never alone.
Tagaya exercises are called Qualities since they are a concentrated extract of characteristics: Courage, happiness, clarity, concentration, presence, peace, affect, every Quality brings a different flavor with it and through practicing you can experience the variety of life flavors. The more you repeat practicing a Quality, it becomes more accessible and available in your life.
Behind the Qualities is the 'Wisdom of the Elements a concept that's teaching internal freedom to move and create, to experience, to learn, to receive and give forward, free of limitations. In order to do what's best for you, you need an available energy, which in unconscious situations could be wasted on situations that are taking powers away from you. The wisdom of elements is teaching you to 'see', to identify what's happening beyond the masks and 'hunt the energy' in order to gather it back, and consciously turn it into a full personal fulfillment
