Creating space

Kathy Krugerbalance, harmony5 Comments

Living room

It’s a funny thing – space is all around us – the universe is mostly space, yet we can feel crowded in. There’s something about modern living that makes many of us a little claustrophobic, even when not in confined spaces. Mostly I believe it is a ‘pressing down’ of too much stuff, like we are literally carrying the weight … Read More

That floating feeling

We live in a world of so much sensory stimulation, it’s no wonder we all feel agitated and often overwhelmed. Wouldn’t it be nice to float in silence, stillness and darkness for a while.  There’s a Minecraft video series my son is far too fond of and the man’s voice grates on me like nails scratching a chalkboard (for those … Read More

Divided we fall

We arrive of Fiji’s Malalo Island and they serenade us with a welcome song as they greet us with a ‘Welcome Home.” The Home part is significant and heartfelt. It’s more than commercial schmaltz in a developing island nation that relies so heavily on tourism – it feels as genuine as the smiles and the hearty shouts of Bula, Bula … Read More

Dive into the deep end

Dive into life

Let’s play semantics (yeh, my favourite game) and so be clear that I don’t mean ‘go off the deep end’! That would be losing control of your emotions, getting angry and irrational – going crazy. I NEVER do that!! I don’t even mean ‘jump in at the deep end’ – because the act of jumping implies just that little bit … Read More

Give in to what is within

One of my fellow yoga teachers wisely says: “yoga is not about the shapes you make.” That’s so true, and I’d add that yoga is very much about shaping who you are, or more accurately, revealing the shape of the real you. You’ve probably read plenty of articles talking about how yoga is much more than asana practice…and it is, … Read More

Ho, Ho, Yin

Ho, Ho, Ho – the familiar Santa Clause catchphrase of good cheer as that jolly old fellow St Nick laughs and his little round belly shakes like a bowl full of jelly. It brings a smile and Christmas cheer, of course, but I’d like to propose a new refrain. Ho, Ho, Yin – a good natured laugh, a cheeky old … Read More

How to zone out to zone in during yoga class

Kathy Krugerfind your flow, harmony, yoga10 Comments

smiling in lotus_edited-2

Yoga classes can sometimes feel really busy. There’s the teacher’s chatter, the sounds of other people breathing (sometimes heavy), the music, heat perhaps — not to mention the distraction of the cute guy in the front row. Maybe the class is crowded and you’re positioned a little too close to someone else’s mat for your liking (unless of course you’re … Read More

Birdsong

Birdsong – depending on where you live, it is probably available to you to hear every morning, if you just listen. Maybe the birds are a noisy and unwelcome alarm clock. Or maybe you allow yourself to wake gently, as if serenaded by nature’s choir. Perhaps traffic noise drowns out their chirpy chattering. Perhaps it is all about what you … Read More

My faults (in 50 words or less)

Writing-a-list-1024x692

This is hard to do – confine my faults to 50 words or less – abbreviate a long list of shortcomings lest I bore you even more, or go completely to town on myself. I’ve wasted 35 words already (make that 40)! Can I start again? You can count from NOW. I yell – my worst trait Over-dramatisation *the hypen … Read More

Of planets, moons and birthdays

Have you looked up lately? Venus and Jupiter have been hanging out together, apparently closer than they’ve been since something like 2BC and you can spot them up there, just over the horizon, even though they are xxxxxxxxx miles away. (Venus and Jupiter are actually about 670,130,000km apart, even though they’ve been looking only half-a-moon diameter apart. Our closet planetary … 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
