Stillness and spirituality have always been of interest to Kym, even as a young child. So when the opportunity arrived, Kym travelled to India and lived in an ashram from 2002 – 2005. Her purpose was to find inner calm and to seek answers to those deep philosophical questions that we ponder: What is my purpose? Is there a God? Why is the world the way it is?
When Kym and her husband returned to Melbourne, they sought a quieter life and moved to the Macedon Ranges to achieve this goal. Soon after meeting some locals, Kym was requested to teach yoga, meditation and Vedanta philosophy.
Kym has become passionate about sharing the knowledge acquired in India and since 2005; Kym has conducted many workshops and retreats in Victoria, India, Bali and Vietnam.
“Without an understanding of some basic
fundamental laws of life, we continually stumble over the same rock!” Kym
