How to do enthusiasm like a dog

When you’re a puppy (well I’m guessing) the world is always exciting. There’s always something new to explore and definitely something new to chew. Preferably something expensive. There is always somewhere you haven’t left your mark on yet (favourite toileting spots are emerging that sadly aren’t always outside). But you get away with being a little bit naughty – because … Read More

If you aren’t friends with me on Facebook or following my Facebook page (which also posts to Twitter because I’m lazy) then you won’t have heard our news. And shame on you! (ha, ha). I even posted to Instagram, which is kinda rare for me – because slack photographer (me) and soooo cute (him)!! I should probably pin him too. … 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

Reinvention, again and again and again

Maybe you’re in the midst of a mid-life crisis reinvention, maybe you’re too young for one, or perhaps you’ve come out the other side. Maybe you’re having an early existential crisis or perhaps (lucky/perfect you) you just don’t feel any need to reinvent. Who says you have to reinvent? Maybe you are just caught up in the Christmas car park … Read More

Endings and beginning again

And-they-lived-hanging

What is it about us humans that can make us so sad about endings and so fearful of beginnings? And why can’t we just be happy (or at least circumspect/hopeful) about both ending something old and starting something new? This week we celebrated (hint happiness – then why do I feel so sad?) our Miss Yin finishing primary school. There … Read More

Why it’s better to find meaning than to seek your purpose in life

puppy 1

*trigger warning – cuteness* Do you wish you had a dollar for every person who has agonized over finding their purpose in life? I’d put my multi-millions towards finding – no make that creating, – more meaning in life. And it would be wonderful. (of course money itself doesn’t create meaning, but we all know that story). While I believe … Read More

So it’s National Adoption Awareness Week and I’m proud to say I’m an Adoptive Mum. Although you can drop the adoptive and I’ll happily just be a proud mum. Our children came to us through adoption and we feel forever grateful that we get to parent them – always aware of the loss of their biological parents in not being … Read More

It’s been a year since I started teaching yoga. A year since I discovered what it is like to teach and started learning from my students. A year of discovering how much I still have to learn. It’s been one, two, three, four, five years since we adopted our Little Yang. Five years that have flown fast. Five years worth … Read More

Why it is good to F*@# up

Three letters can make a big difference – that’s why while it is human to f*** up, it is vital to fail up. I f##k up a little more often than I would like, but it is not really such a F@!k up unless I fail to learn my lesson. And I’m human so I do fail to learn my … Read More

water reflection_edited-1

I love watching clouds form all puffy in the sky and watching their reflections in water too – trying to spot animals, shapes and even signs, discerning subtle messages in the sky and on the shimmering water – a floating canvas. Lately I’ve been cloud-spotting reflections in the lake out the back from the vantage point of our brand new … 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
