Namaste, Aloha, Shalom, Salaam

Kathy Krugerlove, peace, yoga7 Comments

This post is by way of saying ‘hello’ for a Friday (or whatever day you are reading this), but something more as well. It’s an offering of peace, an acknowledgement that we are all the same, that we are all one. Namaste. Our everyday hello’s and hi’s are often polite, passing greetings, flippant even, uttered with ‘how are you?’ questions, … Read More

Open your heart

Kathy Krugerlove, yoga10 Comments

What does it really mean to ‘open your heart’? It means being vulnerable. It means opening your heart to your own precious love so you might love others. It means not allowing fear, or guilt, or shame, or any kind of judgment to close your heart down in any way. Your rib cage protects your heart – and it can … Read More

Learning a new language

Kathy Krugerlove, perspective, yoga18 Comments

Learning a new language can give you a whole new perspective as you grapple to make sense of how other people see the world and so find new meaning yourself – you know the whole Eskimos having hundreds of words for ‘snow’ thing. We attach language to those things that are important to us – descriptive, emotive words and sometimes … Read More

Dance with life

Kathy Krugerbalance, contentment, go with the flow, happiness, yoga18 Comments

I’ve always loved the Bryan Ferry song, Dance with Life and the idea that we partner with God or the Universe to choreograph our own dance and join in love with human partners to move in rhythm together. I especially love contemporary (modern ballet) as the ultimate emotional expression of life’s joys and sorrows. I love its fluidity and rawness.

Kathy Krugerbalance, yoga30 Comments

If you’ve hung around here for a while you’ll know my attitude to wobbling – it’s both normal and quite possibly essential (not just in yoga poses, but in life). You may have seen the video below, hubby ‘taking the micky’ and me laughing at myself. If not, here’s a quick link and laugh. Wobbling can be funny – which … Read More

Self-care and shoes

Kathy Krugergratitude, perspective, yoga17 Comments

For the longest time the last thing I’ve wanted to be called is selfish. Call me a weak, call me stupid, call me lazy, jealous, crazy – call me a bitch or do your worst. But selfish – that just runs so counter to the caring, compassionate kind of persona I like to think I have.

A yen for yin

Kathy Krugerbalance, yinyang, yoga9 Comments

It’s funny how when the universe asks you to be one way, you yearn, or yen for the other way. Do we automatically crave what we can’t have? (mmm, note photo above). I mean just when I need yang energy to be confident, active, out-there, socialising, I feel like I have a yen for yin.
