About Your Instructor

 

Hi, I'm Catherine Carrigan. I am a medical intuitive healer, Amazon #1 bestselling author and yoga teacher.

For the past 24 years, I’ve taught people just like you how to heal yourself naturally. My goal in this training course is to teach you breathing exercises to heal you from the inside out.

You can find out more about how I can help you at www.catherinecarrigan.com and www.unlimitedenergynow.com

As a serious student, over the past 24 years teaching yoga I have always sought out the best teachers and traveled all over the country to improve myself whenever I could. Although I have always enjoyed practicing what most people think of when they consider yoga – the postures themselves – as time passed I noticed how I could rapidly shift into a state of internal bliss simply through breath work, or pranayama. I wanted to be able to teach my clients how they can shift out of severe anxiety, depression, hopelessness, pain, and panic in a mere matter of minutes.

When you know you can make yourself feel better in a very short period of time, you rediscover your power over your internal states. After taking this class, you can make yourself feel better anytime, anywhere.

Breath Work or Pranayama

Do you know anyone who suffers from asthma, anxiety, high or low blood pressure, fatigue, depression, or sleep apnea?

All have been successfully treated with breath work, or pranayama.

Controlling the Breath

Why is breathing so important?

According to Swami Rama, “Controlling the breath, and thus calming the nerves, is a prerequisite to controlling the mind and body”.

How Does this Work?

When you sit to meditate, you may notice initially that your mind roams all over the place. If you begin your meditation practice with breathing exercises, you will notice your mind becoming more still.

How does this happen?

In yogic theory, you have koshas, also known as sheathes:

Your spiritual body or anandamayakosha, literally translated as the body of bliss, controls your mind, or vijnanamayakosha.

Your mind, or vijanamayakosha, controls your emotions, also called your anamayakosha.

Your emotions, or anamayakosha, control your energy body, also known as your pranamayakosha.

Your energy body, or pranamayakosha, controls your physical body, also known as the annamaya kosha, which literally translates as the body of food.

Simply put, your breath is quite literally the bridge between your mind and body
