“I do all my work prayerfully,” says author and yoga teacher Catherine Carrigan.

“My guidance kept insisting that I write a book about breathing but I kept questioning myself.

“Only after finishing the rough draft of The Little Book of Breathwork did I fully appreciate why that was so necessary.

The Little Book of Breathwork

The Little Book of Breathwork by Catherine Carrigan, available in paperback, ebook and audiobook

“Many people have written fairly academic books about breathing that make this subject more complicated than it truly needs to be.

“On top of that, although millions of people around the world practice yoga few truly appreciate the transformative power of hand mudras, which are simple gestures you can do with your hands to completely change the way you feel.

The Little Book of Breathwork teaches you how to take control of your restless mind by combining breath work, mudras and affirmations. 

“I have used these techniques for decades with clients suffering from anxiety as well as with those who were unable to achieve a meditative state of mind.

“I call the routine I describe in The Little Book of Breathwork “Eight Minutes to Inner Peace  because you can change the way you feel in a matter of minutes.

“Prescription anti-anxiety drugs don’t even work that fast. 

“Many people suffering from anxiety turn to drugs – legal and illegal – or alcohol because they know no other ways to calm their mind.

“My hope is that by sharing this life-changing information, you will feel back in control of the way you feel and can bless yourself and others with the inner peace your soul so deeply needs.”

Even if you do not suffer from anxiety or depression, many people have difficulty meditating because they are unable to turn off their highly intelligent minds.

Learning how to calm your mind through breathwork, mudras and affirmations can allow you to access deeper states of meditation.

Lastly, many people suffer breathing difficulties – asthma, COPD and even the after effects of COVID-19.

“I got into exercise because I was diagnosed with asthma in my early 30s,” says Catherine Carrigan.

“The steroid inhalers prescribed by my doctors just made me feel dizzy and awful, so I made the decision on my own to start exercising regularly to increase my overall lung capacity.

“It wasn’t until I started practicing yoga that I really learned how to breathe.

“Now that I’ve been teaching yoga for 26 years doctors can find no trace of asthma and I can breathe freely and easily.”
