Kak Urpani

No bugs were harmed during the creation of this page and no they won't be a part of the menu either!  

Here are some fascinating facts about Kak (whom we call "the most interesting woman in the world!")

Katherine, also known as Kak, is a hatha yoga teacher since 2013. She is a human being on a path she loves and loves to share.

Years ago, yoga gently lifted Kak from a deep, dark place and solidified her belief in its power forever. Since then she has continued to learn aspects of this practice which invariably resonate with her in every way.

Because of an unusually international upbringing, Kak was exposed to many languages and cultures early on. Perhaps this allowed her to be just that much more open-minded towards yogic ideas, once she became familiar with them. Her mother also gets due credit for raising her sister and herself to be open to extraordinary concepts.

On her first day at yoga teacher training in Rishikesh, India, Kak's teacher, Roshan, told her not to believe what he taught her but he then told her not to reject what he taught her either. He told her to contemplate what he taught her. Later Kak understood that this was because she was being encouraged to use her own ability to distinguish between true and false as per her perception; her heart is naturally equipped with discernment and all she has to do is learn to listen! Let that also be Kak's first message.

Since her training in India, yoga has exploded in popularity in the West. Although yoga seems to be widely misconstrued in the West and perceived as strictly a fitness tool, Kak learned from her Indian teachers that practicing asana in any way, shape or form may increase the odds of a desire for a deeper understanding and it can bring new levels of peace, love and joy.
