Popular – Let it in

Kathy Krugerchange, go with the flow, happiness, love, perspective53 Comments


At the moment I’m being tortured (or is that too strong a word?) to the tune of ‘Let it go’ from Disney’s hit movie Frozen. (Ok – I know it’s a common complaint, but here I stand, well write anyway). My torturer is very cute though (as I’m sure yours is) – in my case our four-year-old son is rather … Read More

Popular – Things I almost forgot

Kathy Krugerfind your flow, gratitude, peace, perspective56 Comments


I tried so very hard to forget the above hairstyle! I almost forgot that I was someone before I was a Mum. I spent so long trying to be a Mum. When I was trying to be a Mum, I almost forgot that I was still someone. I made my identity out of being an infertile woman. That sucked! I … Read More

Stop, drop, flop

Kathy Krugercontentment, go with the flow3 Comments


So this is not a fire safety instruction you should follow, but it is what I feel liking doing – just stopping, dropping, flopping – feeling a bit burnt out by the first half of the year. Burnt out with blogging – as my efforts aren’t exactly setting the world alight. Burnt out by the rush and stress that is the … Read More

Get a new perspective – fast!

Kathy Krugergratitude, perspective26 Comments


You may think you need the shock of bad (or very good) news to flick the switch on a new perspective. Like a reboot for your life. Obviously very good news is always welcome – and that flood of serotonin (the happy hormone) and possibly oxytocin (the natural love drug) in your system is enough to give you a whole … Read More

10 ways to create your own yoga retreat

Kathy Krugergratitude, yoga2 Comments

Reading and yoga nook

There is something pretty special about going away on a yoga retreat. I’m recently back from my annual retreat in the World Heritage listed mountain rainforest near where I’m lucky to live – two nights, barely 44 hours, but long enough to relax, refresh and rejuvenate. Bliss. From brief breaks away to week-long (or longer) retreats in exotic locales, a … Read More

Missing out (and FOMO)

Kathy Krugeradoption, contentment, love, motherhood26 Comments


Sometimes you smack hard up against what you’ve missed out on, and even though you thought you were ok with missing out, turns out you’re not really. I’m not talking about the childhood trauma of missing out on the netball team or not getting picked for the part of Dorothy and having to play the Wicked Witch of the East … Read More

Emotional release – pass the tissues

Tears (1)

When was the last time you cried? Oh I’m sorry if I bring you back to a bad place with this question (presuming they weren’t happy tears). Hopefully they were. Maybe you cried watching the news (because there are far too many things to cry over in this world). Perhaps your tears sprung out of universal humanity for the suffering … Read More

How my daughter taught me to chase my dreams again

Miss Yin mid-flight

I don’t know whether it’s just me, but I wonder why when we become parents, and particularly as we start to age (well we’re doing that our whole lives!) we start envisaging the future for our kids instead of for ourselves. Naturally we are going to have dreams for our children, what parent wouldn’t – and we are going to … Read More

Fast or slow?

Kathy Krugerbalance, find your flow24 Comments

warped clock_edited-1

This is not an erotic question! Would it drive you crazier if things went ‘too’ fast, or ‘too’ slow? Would you worry that you’d miss out on more of life if things went too slow, or if they went too fast?  Is there such a thing as a perfect speed, or is the best we can hope for some sort … Read More

Winter – a yearn for yin

Kathy Krugerbalance, mummytime, yinyang12 Comments


Winter is the season of yin. Which suits me just fine as I head off to a yoga retreat and complete my training in yin yoga over the next couple of weeks. I’m going to use the very unfashionable ‘OMG’ to say that I’m lucky. I’m kinda unfashionable. (The retreat is just one weekend away a year, and the training two … Read More

We need a yin revolution

Kathy Krugerbalance, yinyang, yoga4 Comments


We need a yin revolution. Only, it’s more of a yin evolution, because that’s more the nature of Yin. We need to turn things right side up (not upside down) in a world dominated by yang and we need to do it calmly, sensitively. READ MORE at DoYouYoga Like this:Like Loading…

word police

I’ve joined the word police – I don’t mean I’ve turned into a grammar Nazi (I’m no Nazi and I’m not particularly grammatical, grammarly, WHATEVS), but I have words in my sights that I want banned from my vocabulary – and yours too. You’ll thank me for it. udgement – ok, you can see I’ve spelt (or should it be … Read More

What it takes to be a great teacher

Kathy Krugergratitude, yoga16 Comments

great teacher

She hugs you like a long-lost best friend. And then hugs the next long-lost best friend just as warmly. Yet you still feel special. She smiles on high-beam. Her laugh is contagious and her loud American accent isn’t even annoying – it’s joy on loudspeaker, with a twang. She strums a ukulele and serenades you in Sanskrit – you’re smiling … Read More

To change or not to change?

Kathy Krugerchange, contentment, happiness23 Comments

Chance to change

It’s not the rhetorical question Shakespeare’s Hamlet posed but it comes pretty close as a ‘biggie’ we have to work out in life. I believe that change is a constant (and the universe concurs), yet I find myself drawn to calm contemplation lately. To stillness rather than going somewhere (anywhere?). I’m in ‘yin’ deep reflection mode right now, getting ready … Read More
