Hello! I’m Gladys Caro and I'm happy you are here. Welcome to Breathe For Healing where I facilitate and offer everything I know about Clarity Breathwork!
Here is the story of how I found this transformational & healing practice for myself:
I was born and raised in Peru, and lived in Spain during college before coming to New York where I got married in my early twenties. I have three children and help my husband run our dog daycare & boarding family business. In 2015 my daughter gifted me the book “You Can Heal Your Life” by Louise Hay. I finished the book in a couple of days and it changed my life for the better. That book helped me understand my life, the way I was raised, the way I raised my children, and especially the way we are all conditioned by society to just check off boxes in life without much questioning. I had it all, beautiful healthy children, husband, career, and financial success. What else could anyone else want? But there was still a sense that something was missing.
During a weekend with some girlfriends, my good friend Anne Margolis was telling us about a very effective and gentle healing breathing modality that she had learned. She used me to demonstrate to the girls how to breathe. She said, “It is a gentle circular connected breath” It helps your body release toxins at a cellular level as well as trauma embedded in your body. We were in a pool and she was helping my body stay afloat. I started breathing as per her instructions. A few minutes later I felt some tingling in my arms and legs (I thought I was cold in the water). When she said ok, we can go out now, I could not stand to walk, so she helped me to the side of the pool, covered my body and she reassured me that I was safe. What I was feeling was trauma energy leaving my body. I stayed by the side of the pool for a time just feeling the sensations in my body. I felt something leaving my body. I couldn’t say what, but it felt good. I had my eyes closed and I felt as if a Divine being had touched me and was with me. It was a feeling of joy and bliss that I’ve never felt before. I felt so profoundly touched by this experience that I had to ask Anne to let me know where I can learn more about this breathe.
After a few more sessions with Anne, I joined her in Costa Rica for the practitioner training. One needs to take 5 levels of training to become a Clarity Breathwork Practitioner. I spent five weeks in a town called Pachamama in Costa Rica completing the intensive training. Our teachers Ashana Solaris and Dana Dharma Devi are the most loving, nurturing and incredible beings. They generously share their knowledge and help their students become confident, effective practitioners with the right skills to be of assistance to anyone during this very loving powerful process of healing and transformation.
Clarity Breathwork has helped me have clarity in my life. It has helped me clear old energies, patterns, conditioning, and negative thoughts and emotions. It is helping me to be more compassionate to myself, more understanding toward everyone and everything. To be present in life and just BE.
This year, as a member of The International Breathwork Foundation, I went to the yearly conference called the Global Inspirational Conference in Joshua Tree, California. There were over 40 countries represented. It was such an eye opener to the treasure that the BREATH is. I learned so many other techniques from many pioneers of breathwork from around the world. I feel so blessed to have found this gentle yet very powerful healing modality that uses the body’s innate wisdom to heal itself!! I’m forever a student of BREATH! I feel so fortunate to have found this gold! I feel passionate about sharing it with everyone I meet. People from all ages and beliefs can benefit from breath awareness and breathing more consciously. It is said that you can use your breath to change your state.
Join me and let’s explore the potential of your breath to improve all aspects of your life. I would be honored to guide you through your healing and self-discovery!
