About Kat Gál

The Short Version of Me:

I am a runner, writer, traveler and cat-lover. Hungarian by birth, international by choice. I have been living internationally for over 15 years and nomadically globetrotting for the past 6.5. I am passionate about holistic living, running, writing, psychology, books and films that make me feel and think. I love authentic and vulnerable conversations, and instant soul-to-soul connections. As a brand-new US resident, I am currently living in the United States with my husband.


Why am I here?

I am here to speak about real issues: the joys and the sadness, the excitement and the challenges, the social, physical, and emotional aspects of real life (behind Facebook & Instagram), to get raw, to get authentic, to get vulnerable, and to create true happiness, health, and self-love by being courageous to walk this journey.

I here to share my knowledge and my tips to help you to create YOUR ideal life, to help you to overcome obstacles, and to go for your dreams. I am here to listen to your stories, and exchange ideas and resources. I want to get to know you. 

By opening up the discussing and sharing, I hope to also discover the road to holistic happiness on our each unique way…

Let’s get real. Let’s talk about it. Let’s be authentic and vulnerable.

Let’s create holistic happiness together…on the road, abroad, or back home.

My health journey:

“You are like a sinking ship. You just have to learn to live with this pain for the rest of your life.”

This is what my doctor told me in 2011. I was dealing with never-ending, 24/7, day-and-night, chronic headaches every minute of every day since 2009 (or should I say, I was suffering from one big headache?!). I had chronic neck and shoulder pain and nagging muscle pain. My unexplained, but on-going and unbearable hip pain – that put me out of my beloved sport, long-distance running, leaving me in pain even when sitting or laying down – was coupled with extreme low-back pain triggered by a yoga instructor’s not so gentle push.I was one big pain. Not to mention that obviously this all made my life-long depression worse. Trauma and anger for the physical and emotional abuse I experienced through my entire childhood and adolescence was haunting me.

I was in pain physically and emotionally. My doctor was right about the first part: I did feel a bit like a sinking ship. But I refused to become a case of Titanic.

I most certainly was NOT going to just ‘learn how to live with this pain for the rest of my life’.

Needless to say, I never went back to that doctor.

My resilient nature lead me to look for my own answers. I began with nutrition, but quickly I realized that I have to look at my life from a holistic perspective. The mind, body and soul cannot be separated. So I dug deep, started taking care of the (w)holistic me on the mind, body and soul level.

First my back and hip pain disappeared. I am running long-distances happily and without any pain since 2012 again.

Then after 4.5 years my non-stop never-ending headaches stopped. I am headache-free since 2013, for over 2 years.

But not only that… I forgave my abusive father. I claimed freedom.

I started choosing me. I started loving me. I made the decision to be happy, healthy and free. I dare to embrace my own journey.

Inspired by my own journey, I became determined to help others find their happiness, health and freedom as well. I studied Holistic Health and Integrative Nutrition Coaching at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and Transformational Life Coaching at the Southwest Institute for Healing Arts.
