Sometimes a person comes into your life who fundamentally changes your entire view of life itself.
Years ago, I had the great privilege of studying with Joseph LePage, founder of Integrative Yoga Therapy. This was one of my six 200-hour yoga teacher trainings along with a 500-hour yoga teacher training as well as extended study of yoga therapy with other teachers that has formed the foundation of my 26 years of teaching.
It was there, deep into my personal study of therapeutic yoga, that my eyes opened to a deeper understanding of who we really are.
This understanding of the human experience informs my work every day of my life as a medical intuitive healer.
When I do medical intuitive readings, I read what I refer to as the five levels of healing:
- Your physical body
- Your energy system
- Your emotions
- Your mind, the thoughts, beliefs and mental programming that form the structure of your life
- Your soul
You can learn more about what I look for on the spiritual level in my 10th book Reading the Soul.
This book is based on my 28 years experience in natural healing and empowers you to appreciate your soul’s journey in this lifetime.
An estimated 300 million people all over the world practice of yoga and most of us get introduced through the study of asana, or postures.
You can count me among the 36 million Americans who practice and the 14 million over the age of 50 who keep at it.
At age 62, I still teach seven yoga classes every week – four online classes and three in person at a private club here in Atlanta.
And yet yoga itself is bigger than the practice of steady, easy poses.
As you broaden your understanding of yoga you can come into a deeper appreciation of who you really are as well as the challenges you may be currently facing.
In this interview for the Natural Healing Show for UK Health Radio, medical intuitive healer Catherine Carrigan explores the principles of Integrative Yoga Therapy with founder Joseph LePage.
Questions addressed in this interview include:
What are the fundamental principles of Integrative Yoga Therapy?
Many people would say that all exercise can be therapeutic, and that all yoga can be healing. What is it specifically about Integrative Yoga Therapy that you feel leads to healing?
What are the five koshas?
What are the sanskrit names of the koshas and how can relate to them?
What are mudras?
What are the eight limbs of yoga?
What are the five kleshas?
What does your personal yoga practice look like these days?
Many people come to yoga through an asana practice. In your professional opinion, what does it mean to be a yoga in this day and age?
When you look back over your many years teaching and practicing yoga, what is the one thing that you wish more people really understood about the practice of yoga?
Joseph LePage is one of the leading yoga teachers of our day.
His books Yoga Toolbox for Teacher and Students and Mudras for Healing and Transformation are read in yoga teacher trainings all over the U.S. and Brazil.
What is healing? Healing happens when you begin to practice yoga and open yourself to a deeper understanding of your true nature.
