frozen-7

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

hair

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

Fortune cookie wisdom (what it really means to be smart)

Do you believe in fortune cookie wisdom? Being into all things yin and yang, it’s not surprising that I do. Actually what I believe in is wisdom that runs much deeper than intelligence and learning, that it is full of insight and knowing and is earned through experience. So last Friday for Harmony Day, Mr Yang and I braved a … Read More

A definition of success

Success, like balance, means different things to different people. I’m pretty sure it doesn’t mean money and power, but society begs to differ. I’m pretty sure it has a whole lot to do with love and that it can be simple, humble – wouldn’t you agree? Success can be one glass of wine instead of three after a long day … Read More

yoga-cat-funny

My most popular post has nothing to do with cats, even though people do search ‘funny cat’ quite frequently and find an image of a yoga-loving feline that I pinched from this page. Cute heh – there are dozens more. What exactly is it about cats that almost breaks the internet? What unites us in laughter and our shared desire … Read More

Lessons from travel

Some parts are easy

In January last year we travelled to Japan and I fell in love. With Japan, not someone other than hubby. A year on, I miss this beautiful country and I’ve been reflecting again on the lessons that travelling there taught me. If you follow great travel blogs like Ytravel blog you’ll be blown away by the lessons, both subtle and … Read More

Does meditation drive you mad?

Kathy Krugeradoption, meditation, yoga18 Comments

meditation frustration_edited-1

Well sometimes it does for me, but mostly when I’m not actually doing meditation and feeling bad that I’m not actually doing meditation when I feel I should be. Then I’m mad (mostly at myself). Yep meditation – just another shoulda, woulda, coulda in life. It’s March, actually the 6th already as I post, and in typical not-getting-myself organized-enough style I … Read More

I can speak clearly now the sky is blue

throatchakra

You’ve got to love a change of season and the deep blue starting to ink across a cloudless sky. The temperature gets crisper, everything becomes clearer, the truth obvious. Until it’s cloudy again. Autumn down-under signals a change of colours in the leaves on the trees (although not so much in the climate where I live) and a slow deepening into … Read More

Living simply when you still love things

il_340x270.633623838_lipz

When you take the yoga path, it should be one of simplicity, spirituality, and humanity, right? Well, mostly right. I do favor serenity and nature over shiny things. I prefer to donate rather than spend lavishly. I seek to connect rather than compare, to experience rather than accumulate, to enjoy instead of consume, to love people not possessions. Spiritual trumps … Read More

Dashama-0160

I ran the words like a mantra in my mind, rolling like a yoga Vinyasa flow sequence – each word running effortlessly into the next, the sentiment slipstreaming and surging into a strong statement, building into a belief, a certain conviction – YES. It is. I can. And I will. And I could. And I did. Hold a strong, mighty … Read More

Compassion in the Year of the Sheep

1000Voices_zps11edff99

I don’t know whether compassion will be a hallmark of the new Chinese Year of the Sheep (or Goat/Ram). I sincerely hope so. I do know that our Chinese-born adopted daughter, born in the last Year of the Sheep (2003) is not much of a flock follower (other than in fashion). I know that she can ram home her point … Read More

How to harness your superhero power

bam

Let’s just pretend for a moment that you’re a superhero (because you are) and play a game about what power you would most want to use for heroic good (and perhaps just a little razzle dazzle). Would you choose invisibility and so be able to spy and eavesdrop on friends, family and foe (and random hunky guys) – for good … Read More

Crack open your heart chakra

You can think of cracks as being the broken bits in your heart, or you can think of them as letting the light in – and letting your light, and love, out. For Valentines Day, and well, everyday, I’m thinking of the cracks in my heart as veins of pure light, crevices glowing golden with compassion, rivers or ruby red … Read More

Why moderation matters (on and off the yoga mat)

Kathy KrugeryogaLeave a Comment

kathy-200x0

I may be committing heresy on a yoga blog (writing for DoYouYoga), but my message today is yoga in moderation.  Hear me out before you question my commitment and maybe my sense—it’s not #yogaeverydamnday in my book, but #yogayourbestway. If yoga is a form of self-care then the last thing you need to do is obsess about it. Read more: Like … Read More
