It’s what these last few days of the year hopefully are – slow and simple. Languorous, lazy, light. It’s Thursday as I write this but it could be a Wednesday or Friday or another day wedged between Christmas and New Year, when the ham is getting close to the bone but there is still enough for sandwiches (if you can … Read More

Soft is not weak

Kathy Krugerperspective, yinyang40 Comments

Marshmallows

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

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

Winter – a yearn for yin

Winter is the season of yin. Which suits me just fine as I head off to a yoga retreat and complete my training in yin yoga over the next couple of weeks. I’m going to use the very unfashionable ‘OMG’ to say that I’m lucky. I’m kinda unfashionable. (The retreat is just one weekend away a year, and the training two … Read More

A yen for yin

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.

Failure is an option – 5 things to find through failure

Kathy Krugercontentment, perspective, yinyang7 Comments

successful-entrepreneurs-bounced-back-failure

Do we grow more through success or failure? I’d venture that it’s failure that not only teaches us more, but teaches us how to be successful. Of course in yinyang terms, ‘failure’ and ‘success’ are simply two sides of the same coin. And life is about flipping (hopefully success comes up more often). BUT. I could pepper this post with plenty of … Read More

I’m off on a yoga retreat (read treat) in just under two weeks and I’m just a teeny bit excited! So in anticipation or celebration I thought I’d share with you what I call the yin and yang of yoga (just my term, nothing technical). I hope I can inspire you to give yoga a go, if you haven’t already. … Read More

Clipart Yin Yang Work

I’ve haven’t blogged about applying yin and yang energies to life lately, so I thought I’d turn my attention to work, especially since the holiday season is now a distant memory! I’ve been weighing up what to do for meaningful work for a very long time (well a lifetime really) and I’m not sure I’ve come up with the answer, … Read More

Balance isn’t a battle of the sexes (shall we dance?)

Shall we dance

OK, so I wobble a fair bit when I do yoga balance poses, but I get there – eventually. And it seems a metaphor for my life. I think that balance is found in both stillness AND movement – the trick is to find more stillness and more meaningful movement – to master the steps to dance with life. And maybe men do lead … Read More

Yinyang – the hot and cold of it (and the shades of grey)

Kathy Krugerbalance, go with the flow, motherhood, perspective, yinyang4 Comments

yin and yang the hot and cold of it

One of the first words Little Yang said (after Mum, but before Dad!) was HOT. This of course was because he was told repeatedly ‘don’t touch, HOT’ around cups of tea or coffee. And we would blow any food that was warmed a little too much with the warning ‘HOT, HOT’. To him HOT naturally came to mean ‘BAD’ – … Read More
