Ho, Ho, Yin

Kathy Krugerbalance, harmony, yinyang12 Comments

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

Just swing into 2015

Kathy Krugerhappiness, harmony10 Comments

The breeze tickles my face and I have tickles in my stomach too. I’m rocking back and forth, seesawing on the kid’s swing, and then I let myself swing a little higher, as I watch stars sneak out from behind marshmallow puffs of clouds into inky black patches of sky. It feels like I’m swinging on a star. I’ve just … Read More

Bringing it all back to balance

Kathy Krugerbalance, harmony, peace14 Comments

There are some things I know for sure about balance. It isn’t easy, and yet it is our natural state. It doesn’t have to be equal, and yet it is about finding equilibrium. It isn’t black and white – it’s only in the richness of colour and contrast that we can perceive a beautiful pattern of balance. We can get … Read More

Tis’ the season – how yoga gets you into the holiday spirit

Kathy Krugerharmony, love, peace, yogaLeave a Comment

While we don’t use the term ‘holiday season’ so much where I’m here in Australia (we’re more likely to use the festive ‘season’ or just plain old ‘Christmas’), in North America, it’s the ‘politically correct,’ universal term.Never discuss politics and religion happens to be a sensible creed I should follow—especially on a yoga website, but I don’t think calling it … Read More

Christmas pep talk

Kathy Krugerbalance, contentment, harmony2 Comments

Have you got Christmas sorted? You know like all the socks matched. Are you on top of Christmas? You know like all the way through that mountain of washing. There have been plenty of times throughout the year when I haven’t felt enough, despite banging on about balance and realising that since we are all born enough, the only way … Read More

What would you do with a windfall?

Kathy Krugergratitude, happiness, perspective27 Comments

So I’ve had an unexpected windfall. Well it’s not exactly a windfall and it’s not like I won anything, but it feels unexpected and sort of lucky. And because of that, I’m keen to give this (ok smallish) sum to charity. You see a few months back, out of the blue, I received a fine from the ATO (that would … Read More

Nothing – it’s what you really need

Kathy Krugerbalance, contentment31 Comments

I’m on holidays as I publish this (oh I’m sorry to make you jealous) – enjoying that sense of space we find so hard to find in our everyday lives. What do we look forward to when we go on holidays? Mostly doing NOTHING. I can’t get away from the theme right now that what we need most when it … Read More

Gifts for the twelve days of Christmas

Kathy Krugercontentment, happiness, love6 Comments

For the famous 12 days of Christmas, I’ve worked up my ‘wish list’ for my true love (and/or the universe), and I’d love to be just as generous to him – he deserves his wishes (well most of the time). Thanks Mr Yang for being there, with me and for me, during a happy, challenging, frustrating, joyful year (ie just another year). … Read More

What a difference a year makes

Kathy Krugerchange, contentment, perspectiveLeave a Comment

This photo was taken by our friends on Christmas Day in Squamish, Canada where we lived throughout 2011. They had lots of snow and a lovely White Christmas – of course it rained when we were there for Christmas last year. I have to admit I’m just a little bit disappointed we missed this and the snow came one year too late! … Read More

Not perfect, but perfectly wonderful

Merry Christmas from the Krugers

I nearly ran out of time to write this post in the Christmas rush to get things right, but if we can’t make time to count our blessings at Christmas…trouble is we want things to be ‘perfect’ at this time of year and nothing ever is. Doesn’t mean it can’t be perfectly wonderful. Case in point – all precipitation is … Read More

A (Christmas) Tree – a meditation on life

Kathy Krugergo with the flow, harmony, perspective, yinyang3 Comments

I have a confession to make – I’m rather obsessed with trees! Not just Christmas trees, but all sorts of trees. And I think that considering how trees are rooted into the ground (yin) and reach for the sky (yang) they are a perfect symbol of balance, of embracing change, of bending into it, of letting go (of leaves, raindrops, … Read More
