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

So you’re angry, or frustrated, or just a little snarky (hey yogis, we all get like that). But yoga is there for you, to calm you, and so you can dump that anger right down on the mat rather than unleash it on your poor friends and family, colleagues, or unsuspecting strangers. You might think that when you’re angry and … 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.

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

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.

If yoga is a form of self-care then the last thing you need to do is obsess about it. Read more:

Breathe. In. And out. In. And out. So everybody is still alive after the holidays – that’s great. Last Friday I published the lazy guide to being enough in 2015 – most of you were too lazy to bother reading – perfectly understandable really as I haven’t torn myself too far away from the pool or the yoga mat over … Read More

10 tips for fitting yoga into a busy schedule

Kathy Krugerwork-life balance, yoga2 Comments

Working-Schedule yoga 1

Life is busy isn’t it? Even though yoga, and particularly Yin yoga, bids us to slow down, work and school schedules, housework, and family responsibilities simply don’t stop. Fitting in yoga is often a trade-off (personally I’m trading in housework). Unless you’re on a yoga retreat or living in a monastery, yoga is always going to be a physical practice … Read More
