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

christmas_mandala_by_manndacity-d89mswb

There are some things I know for sure about balance. It isn’t easy, and yet it is our natural state. It doesn’t have to be equal, and yet it is about finding equilibrium. It isn’t black and white – it’s only in the richness of colour and contrast that we can perceive a beautiful pattern of balance. We can get … Read More

Tis’ the season – how yoga gets you into the holiday spirit

yoga christmas

While we don’t use the term ‘holiday season’ so much where I’m here in Australia (we’re more likely to use the festive ‘season’ or just plain old ‘Christmas’), in North America, it’s the ‘politically correct,’ universal term.Never discuss politics and religion happens to be a sensible creed I should follow—especially on a yoga website, but I don’t think calling it … Read More

Have you got Christmas sorted? You know like all the socks matched. Are you on top of Christmas? You know like all the way through that mountain of washing. There have been plenty of times throughout the year when I haven’t felt enough, despite banging on about balance and realising that since we are all born enough, the only way … Read More

On being boring

boredom-buster

“I’m boring” is the repeated refrain from a four year old who hasn’t worked out yet that it’s actually bored!  It’s day one of the school holidays, he’s still at pre-school, and it’s already begun! While it might be kind of cute that Little Yang thinks he’s boring, it’s not so much when you’re trying to work from home and … Read More

Look in the mirror beautiful

Looked in the mirror lately

At this time of the year we can be particularly harsh on ourselves when it comes to our appearance. In holiday season we’re expected to frock up for all those parties, brave the beach in a bikini (or swimwear of some description), bare our party feet in heels and put our best face forward (even though we can count on … Read More

What would you do with a windfall?

charity

So I’ve had an unexpected windfall. Well it’s not exactly a windfall and it’s not like I won anything, but it feels unexpected and sort of lucky. And because of that, I’m keen to give this (ok smallish) sum to charity. You see a few months back, out of the blue, I received a fine from the ATO (that would … Read More

10 tips for fitting yoga into a busy schedule

Kathy Krugerwork-life balance, yoga2 Comments

Working-Schedule yoga 1

Life is busy isn’t it? Even though yoga, and particularly Yin yoga, bids us to slow down, work and school schedules, housework, and family responsibilities simply don’t stop. Fitting in yoga is often a trade-off (personally I’m trading in housework). Unless you’re on a yoga retreat or living in a monastery, yoga is always going to be a physical practice … Read More

I’m on holidays as I publish this (oh I’m sorry to make you jealous) – enjoying that sense of space we find so hard to find in our everyday lives. What do we look forward to when we go on holidays? Mostly doing NOTHING. I can’t get away from the theme right now that what we need most when it … Read More

high-five-fwp

We all need to talk ourselves up, since we often spend most of the time talking ourselves down. But we don’t do we? We allow ourselves a moment of satisfaction when something succeeds, we might give ourselves a sideways approving glance when we are dressed up to go somewhere special, or we might even give ourselves a secret high-five when … Read More

When did life become business?

business-594x408

There’s a saying ‘it’s just business’ – which is just a lame excuse to justify less than nice ways of behaving towards people – a way of saying ‘it’s ok to treat you badly because it’s just business, it’s not personal’. This saying really bothers me, because really, everything is personal and it’s not nice to not be nice. We … Read More

How yoga play can help your child at school

How-Yoga-Play-Can-Help-Your-Child-at-School-733x440

The last thing most kids need on top of a competitive school curriculum (and often equally competitive extra-curriculars) is another highly structured class. But yoga ‘play’ brings fun, focus, and learning into young lives, much like the benefits we adults can gain from ‘serious’ yoga practice. Great yoga teachers play and facilitate more than they instruct—that’s the secret—the learning comes … Read More

I blame my Dad

My Dad is the nicest man I know (I say that being married to another man who is pretty nice). He’s easy-going, non-judgemental for the most part (although a little opinionated when it comes to politics). I grew up with his protection, warm love and unconditional acceptance, his time, attention and faith in me. But I blame my Dad. Ok … Read More
