Kate Pell – principal teacher and founder of the Bowral Yoga Studio.

Kate has been exploring the art of Yoga in all seriousness since a journey to India in 1988.

She has studied the art of physical alignment through many years of rigorous Iyengar training, as well as completing Sivananda Yoga and Kundalini teacher with Joy Spencer, contemporary teacher training studies with Donna Farhi and Siddha Yoga studies in the philosophies of Kashmir Shiviasm. She began teaching Yoga in 1998 and it became her full time occupation in 2000. Kate has offered Yoga Teacher Training courses since 2006 due to the insistence of her students.

She has a passionate interest in the body/ heart / mind connections and as such trained to become a Shiatsu therapist in 1991/2.

Kate’s first classes began in the northern suburbs of Melbourne before moving to Brisbane where she opened three studios; having a busy life teaching and training teachers. Kate also began hosting teachers from around the world, including Neeta Datta, Allan Goode, Clive Sheridan, Donna Farhi, Simon Borg-Olivier, Pixie Lilas, Shandor Remete and her two main Iyengar yoga teachers Sue and Peter Scott.

Kate is a passionate Vipassana meditation practitioner and will be embarking on honing her skills as a meditation teacher by offering specific classes for meditation at the Bowral Yoga studio.

Kate opened the Bowral Yoga Studio in June 2012 and has built the studio into a great place for everyone to come and practice Yoga with love and contentment.

She is presently embarking on a Masters in Traditional Chinese Medicine at the University of Western Sydney and hopes to incorporate these skills into her teaching.

"God bless this tiny boat,And me who sails in it. It stays afloat for years and years, And sinks within a minute. And so the soul in which we sail, Unknown by years of thinking. Is surely felt and understood, The minute it is sinking.  Mi"

...in acknowledging the gifts of my imperfection and the acceptance of how things are its been the beginnings of a curiosity of how I can simply work with the posture and body I have on the mat at each moment. - Elizabeth H, 2014
