Every day the sun rises in the morning and sets in the evening – at least we hope it keeps doing so! The sun still rises and sets, even on the bleakest of days when we can’t witness its majesty. And yet despite those grey days, we seldom really appreciate the majestic ones. Each day we’re gifted a new dawn … Read More

Yin yoga – FAQ’s

Yin-2BW

It’s hard to believe a year has passed since I taught my very first Yin yoga class, having just completed my yin training the month before – the experience took me to Cloud 10, which is floating as high as you ‘legally’ can. I’d like to say I haven’t come back down since, but hey, life! Still every time I … Read More

Soft is not weak

Kathy Krugerperspective, yinyang40 Comments

Marshmallows

If I called you soft would you take it as an insult or a compliment? Given the title of the article, you’re probably inclined to think of soft in a ‘soft’ way – in other words to view softness as an attribute. But let’s face it, in a yang, masculine world ‘soft’ is more often derisive – a male describing … Read More

Find your flow by letting go

In the flow

You might call me lazy, but I like to follow the wisdom of Chinese sage Lao Tsu when he says ‘By letting go, all things get done’. Sounds easy doesn’t it. Just relax. Chill out. Like you don’t actually have to DO anything – just go with the flow (I bet you’re picturing yourself floating on a lie-low down some … Read More

bloom again

This is not one of those New Year posts with all the tips for getting healthy in 2016 (drink water, eat less, meditate – all good, but kinda obvious). It is about leading a healthy life – which perhaps requires some re-definition, or make that re-invention, of what healthy really means. Or as I’m calling the changes I want to … Read More

Ho, Ho, Yin

a very balanced christmas_edited-1

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

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

So enough already with congratulations and celebrations on the completion of my yoga teacher training (I really do appreciate the kind words I’ve received). On Saturday I graduated with my cohort of 13 new yoga teachers and it was a nice milestone – it’s up to me how I move forward from what is just the beginning of an exciting … Read More

Life’s ups and downs

The Canadian mountains really are awesome

Call it the law of gravity. Up is pretty much the exact opposite of Down, can’t get more black and white or yin-yang than that – it’s a scientific fact, a universal principle of physics, or is it?

Is there such a thing as too much gratitude?

Kathy Krugerbalance, change, contentment, yinyang8 Comments

Acceptance_edited-1

So unless you’ve been sleeping under a social media rock, gratitude is continuing its rage across the interwebs (or I should say it’s spread of the love). Busy is the new black, or perhaps it’s balance, which some say is a seemingly impossible ideal, just like being a Supermom has always been – ie we are far too busy to … Read More

Funny/Sad same, same

Kathy Krugerbalance, happiness, yinyang3 Comments

I don’t have a funny bone in my body, or if I do, it gets tickled, or knocked (and that bloody hurts) and then I completely forget the joke. But not the experience – laughter = joy. That joy settles in the soul! I can’t remember jokes to save my life, but saying that now seems so wrong. Can jokes … Read More
