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

Winter – a yearn for yin

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

Revolution-Through-Evolution-The-Yin-Way

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

A Mother’s Day gift – no guilt

no guilt mothers day

As you wake up to breakfast in bed, handmade cards, craft and drawings, the precious gift of an “I love you Mum’ mug with hot chocolate and a marshmallow from the Mother’s Day stall not to mention an obligatory new pair of slippers, it’s hard not to feel grateful. And I am, and I will be on Sunday. But I’m … Read More

Bliss – do you want some?

Bliss, enlightenment, divinity, Ananda (or extreme happiness – now that’s an extreme worth chasing) – you probably want some of that good stuff in your life. The way to access it is through the top of your crown (the soft spot when you were born), or seventh chakra – apparently. For most of us mere mortals, we might experience a … Read More

Shortly after I push publish on this post, I’ll be heading off to a quiet little cottage in the Northern NSW countryside for two glorious nights of R & R. And I should add, SEX. I should say WE too, because it isn’t much of a wedding anniversary without your partner and sex is hardly the same. Two year’s ago … Read More

Do kids get too much homework?

This is a yin-yang question in the sense that I don’t think there’s any black or white answer. I’m sorry all you teachers out there – you’ll have to give me half-marks, or accept the grey. No red ink right! I’m perturbed, or in non-school-approved vernacular, pissed-off. You see right now I’m experiencing the pains (and I’m talking me personally) … Read More

Just cruising

Have you ever been on a cruise? I’ve just taken my very first cruise (a mini-one). It was almost over before it began, but not before I got to feel like life is all about cruising, not rushing – just being (not to mention laughing). Did I mention drinking (just a little bit of wine)? When you cruise you’re going … Read More

The slow fail (or twinkle little star)

Sometimes I feel I’m a slow failure….either that or I’m simply succeeding more slowly than I’m failing. It’s all in the degrees right (Charlie Brown, anyone)? We often associate failure with losing a race or a match, or missing out on a job – definitive occasions, sudden and dramatic moments where you feel like you suck, before hopefully picking yourself … Read More

Do the twist

Kathy Krugerbalance, perspective, yoga12 Comments

yoga-twist

How often do you twist? Not as in the twist yourself in knots of worry (too often), or the get-down-low-and-shake-those-hips Chubby Checker style twist (although come to think of it I should do that particular dance move more often – it’s great exercise). I mean twist as in these yoga poses demonstrated below. Twisting is great for you – and … Read More
