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

I can speak clearly now the sky is blue

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

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

Everything you need now is already inside you

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

Kathy Krugercontentment, happiness, motherhood10 Comments

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

Let the sun shine – the third chakra

This time last week it was rainy days and Mondays on my mind. Today the sun in shining and I reckon it’s time for us to focus on the light that we can all shine out into the world – our own little individual sun we each carry around as the energy of the third chakra. Also called our Solar … Read More

Daydream believer

Lately I seem to be thinking (and writing) in song titles (eg my last post ‘Rainy Days and Mondays’). I’m listening to music more, creating my own daydreaming space. I’m a believer. The Monkees sweet song doesn’t really make sense, but then daydreams aren’t supposed to. Released an eon ago (the year I was born), the catchy tune somehow nestled … Read More

rainy days and mondays_edited-1

I wear this pencil skirt I bought three years ago that was a bit too tight then, and now isn’t. I’m changed – not just by three years and less weight, but somehow essentially – not my core spirit, but that which flows from my essence (if that spiritual stuff makes sense)! I can only think I’ve come around to … Read More

If you’ve lost touch with your sensuality, feel lacking in creativity or just feel like you can’t live out your passions, then it might be time to tickle the fancy of the second (also known as sacral or sexual) chakra. If you missed my pocket guide to our rainbow of seven chakras, you might like to start with the overview … Read More

Stepping up

Liam uniform

The first day of school is up there in the great milestones of life – and I’m talking for Mums (and Dads) too. Little Yang seems to be taking the whole thing in his funny large-looking stride, but the seemingly oversized school shoes don’t look as big on him as the uniform. He’ll grow into it. We grow into things. … Read More
