Soft is not weak

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

Drumroll…well actually it’s not that dramatic. Transitions imply slow and steady, even if it tis the season for rather dramatic metamorphosis…the whole life, death, to new life again message of Easter has got to be the ultimate reminder that change is inevitable (and even when it is quick it is seldom painless). This rather slack blogger is going to be … Read More

Things that make you smile

I dare you to smile right now – wherever you are. Smile at someone, smile wide, grin big until your face hurts. Doesn’t that feel better. See – I made you smile. So for no other reason than the fact I’ve been smiling a lot lately and since I’m even smiling at the fact that I can’t think of anything … Read More

The good C words

Kathy Krugercontentment, happiness, perspective9 Comments

letter_C

*Word Nerd Alert* Clearly there are some not so great ‘C’ words, and even though I do drop the f-bomb, those words will remain off (my) limits. Off-limit words shall include a few that on the face of it may seem acceptable in some circumstances (competition, comparison, even conflict) but that really we should rid from our vocabularies. And our … 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

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

It’s gone now – for another four years. Our bonus day. I hope you made the most of it, which may not have been so easy since it fell on a Monday and Mondays can be hard days to make the most of. Four years ago, on the leap year day 29 February, 2012, I was still flush with gratitude, … Read More

60 seconds with your inner critic

LoserSmiley

Seriously, after a minute with your inner critic you should have un-friended her. Instead she’s sitting at the top of your Facebook feed posting stuff like: “Your life is soooo boring, no-one has even liked let alone shared your latest post and probably hardly anyone has even seen it because while they haven’t un-friended you (out of politeness), you’re not … Read More

You know that feeling – you’re lying back in a hammock, cool breeze caressing your face, great new book waiting to be read, the waves gently lapping the beautiful sandy beach – perhaps your even on some tropical isle and a waiter is about to bring you something to drink that’s cool and exotic and tastes oh so good. And … Read More

Are you sitting down? Good. So maybe you hate getting blood tests. Maybe you’re getting all squeamish just thinking about it. Perhaps the thought of a needle makes you faint. Sorry for reminding you. Perhaps you’d better skip to the bottom of the post. A casual conversation reminded me about blood tests. In fact two separate conversations in the space … Read More

How yoga can support your detox

divinity mocktail

Right, the rubber kinda hits the road in February doesn’t it – if you have plans to get healthy this year, then it (probably) should start with some kind of detox right now. Whether you strongly believe in detoxing or question its benefits; whether you go hard-core on dietary cleansing with all the juices, shakes, herbs, and potions, or simply … Read More

Grief and sadness – how yoga can help

I’m sorry for your sadness, sorry for your loss. I offer a virtual shoulder, and yoga. Have you ever cried in a yoga class and felt that rush of relief? I bawled like a baby during Yin yoga training last year in a two and a half hour class that went deep — which it turns out was exactly where … Read More
