Cloud Ten

Kathy Krugerfind your flow, happiness, yoga12 Comments

The moon looks pretty small up there in a big blue sky

It’s a real place, I swear. Sitting a bit above Cloud Nine, which is pretty darn high up, but then you’ve always sought a perfect ten and aimed for the stars. You can see them all glistening from Cloud Ten– right there in front of you. Not perfect exactly, but so close – floating up here – fluffy, light, free. … Read More

Finding-Strength-and-Power-in-the-Warrior-Poses

The Warrior (Virabhadrasana) series can say a lot about your yoga and your life. Not that yoga is a competition or life a battle that we need to fight (and win), but that real strength is found through focus and balance and standing firm for what you believe in. For women especially, the Warrior poses can be strong asanas—we women … Read More

10 ways to create your own yoga retreat

Reading and yoga nook

There is something pretty special about going away on a yoga retreat. I’m recently back from my annual retreat in the World Heritage listed mountain rainforest near where I’m lucky to live – two nights, barely 44 hours, but long enough to relax, refresh and rejuvenate. Bliss. From brief breaks away to week-long (or longer) retreats in exotic locales, a … 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

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

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

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

The getting of wisdom – the third eye

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

Kathy Krugerhappiness, yoga2 Comments

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

Does meditation drive you mad?

Kathy Krugeradoption, meditation, yoga19 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

I can speak clearly now the sky is blue

throatchakra

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
