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

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 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

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

Let the sun shine – the third chakra

Kathy Krugerbalance, harmony, yoga23 Comments

solar-plexus-chakra-colors

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

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

More or less

Apple and hamburger on scales conceptual

More or less everything comes down to less or more, or less is more don’t you reckon? More of the good stuff, less of the bad stuff – but of course balance doesn’t have to be equal. So when it comes to our good health, we can distil what most of us need to do into that simple (yin yang) … Read More

I see red (the first chakra)

root-chakra1

No I’m not angry and I’m not even obsessing about a run of stop lights (don’t get me started). I’m talking about visualising the colour red and focusing on the first (or root) chakra, with its emphasis on grounding us in security and stability in our lives so that we might grow. Last year I had a lot of interest … Read More
