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

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

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

So the cousins and the other cousins had a great Easter egg hunt. It was part of a simply great Easter. Let me tell you why it was so good, and why it wasn’t so much about what we hunted for but about what we found – simply by being in the right place. The cousins, our two (11 & … Read More

I may or may not be very wise, but I reckon there’s only one place to find wisdom – inside yourself. If you’re looking anywhere else you’re going to be disappointed. We don’t get wise through reading bookings (any more than from consulting fortune cookies), as I wrote about last week when I was grappling with our son’s ‘diagnosis’ of delayed … Read More

5 reasons yogis make amazing friends

High-on-Partner-Yoga

Not boasting or anything, and not saying I don’t have great friends who aren’t yogis, but as surely as yin compliments yang, I’m discovering that fellow yogis make some of the best of friends. Sure, I’ve heard of tales of yoga bitchiness, amid jealousy over who has the best expensive yoga gear, in between slightly competitive posturing over Headstands and … 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

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

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
