Yoga From Foothills of Himalayas To Fraser Coast
Local Yoga Teacher, Kate Fallick, you'll find on Facebook as Yoga with Kate-Chamundi, sat with me recently to share how discovering Yoga has transformed her life.
Like many of my podcasts interviews, they eventuate from a chance meeting. Kate's was no different. Kate had just arrived at the Fraser Coast after travelling extensively overseas. Exploring Europe, the Middle East and finally Northern India at the foothills of the Himalayas.
As Kate explains, her travel was never an adventure in the pursuit of Yoga or finding ones self. Her travel started as a wild-fun filled-adventure, sparked by a dream of seeing Pink Floyd perform in front of the Pyramids of Egypt.....a concert which later she discovered was an international hoax. But the travel adventure wheels were already in motion and Kate was already in Amsterdam. This fun loving lady shared quite a bit of her story in our 30 minute recording of a podcast, clearly nowhere enough time to get the whole story! But I had asked Kate to join me to share how she found herself in the beautiful Fraser Coast & teaching Yoga. She didn't disappoint.
So, after finding herself at a guest house just a few doors down from a Yoga Studio in the base of the Himalayas. A single, fun loving, smoker, traveller. Yoga again appeared in front of her, as it had at different times in her travels, this time the opportunity & timing was right, and Kate being determined to quit smoking took the opportunity to stop smoking & focus on learning as much as she could about Yoga. So while living in this spiritual sanctuary of the Northern Indian Himalayan Foothills, volunteering to teach english to Tibetan Monks, Kate started her journey, her new chapter of life, almost reborn into the world of Yoga & Meditation.
The Kate sitting in front of me oozes calmness, quiet confidence & spirituality. I must be honest and cannot imagine Kate being a wild gal or having any bad habits at all. She portrays, a calmness and softness, I guess as you would imagine a Yoga Instructor to possess as attributes.
