The getting of wisdom – the third eye

Kathy Krugerharmony, meditation, yoga16 Comments

I may or may not be very wise, but I reckon there’s only one place to find wisdom – inside yourself. If you’re looking anywhere else you’re going to be disappointed. We don’t get wise through reading bookings (any more than from consulting fortune cookies), as I wrote about last week when I was grappling with our son’s ‘diagnosis’ of delayed … Read More

5 reasons yogis make amazing friends

Kathy Krugerhappiness, yoga2 Comments

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. Sure, I’ve heard of tales of yoga bitchiness, amid jealousy over who has the best expensive yoga gear, in between slightly competitive posturing over Headstands and … Read More

Does meditation drive you mad?

Kathy Krugeradoption, meditation, yoga19 Comments

Well sometimes it does for me, but mostly when I’m not actually doing meditation and feeling bad that I’m not actually doing meditation when I feel I should be. Then I’m mad (mostly at myself). Yep meditation – just another shoulda, woulda, coulda in life. It’s March, actually the 6th already as I post, and in typical not-getting-myself organized-enough style I … Read More

I can speak clearly now the sky is blue

Kathy Krugerharmony, yoga15 Comments

You’ve got to love a change of season and the deep blue starting to ink across a cloudless sky. The temperature gets crisper, everything becomes clearer, the truth obvious. Until it’s cloudy again. Autumn down-under signals a change of colours in the leaves on the trees (although not so much in the climate where I live) and a slow deepening into … Read More

Living simply when you still love things

Kathy Krugercontentment, gratitude, yoga8 Comments

When you take the yoga path, it should be one of simplicity, spirituality, and humanity, right? Well, mostly right. I do favor serenity and nature over shiny things. I prefer to donate rather than spend lavishly. I seek to connect rather than compare, to experience rather than accumulate, to enjoy instead of consume, to love people not possessions. Spiritual trumps … Read More

Everything you need now is already inside you

Kathy Krugercontentment, go with the flow, happiness, yoga21 Comments

I ran the words like a mantra in my mind, rolling like a yoga Vinyasa flow sequence – each word running effortlessly into the next, the sentiment slipstreaming and surging into a strong statement, building into a belief, a certain conviction – YES. It is. I can. And I will. And I could. And I did. Hold a strong, mighty … Read More

Why moderation matters (on and off the yoga mat)

Kathy KrugeryogaLeave a Comment

I may be committing heresy on a yoga blog (writing for DoYouYoga), but my message today is yoga in moderation.  Hear me out before you question my commitment and maybe my sense—it’s not #yogaeverydamnday in my book, but #yogayourbestway. If yoga is a form of self-care then the last thing you need to do is obsess about it. Read more:

Let the sun shine – the third chakra

Kathy Krugerbalance, harmony, yoga23 Comments

This time last week it was rainy days and Mondays on my mind. Today the sun in shining and I reckon it’s time for us to focus on the light that we can all shine out into the world – our own little individual sun we each carry around as the energy of the third chakra. Also called our Solar … Read More

Get your sexy on – the second chakra

Kathy Krugerbalance, harmony, yoga21 Comments

If you’ve lost touch with your sensuality, feel lacking in creativity or just feel like you can’t live out your passions, then it might be time to tickle the fancy of the second (also known as sacral or sexual) chakra. If you missed my pocket guide to our rainbow of seven chakras, you might like to start with the overview … Read More

I see red (the first chakra)

Kathy Krugerbalance, perspective, yoga17 Comments

No I’m not angry and I’m not even obsessing about a run of stop lights (don’t get me started). I’m talking about visualising the colour red and focusing on the first (or root) chakra, with its emphasis on grounding us in security and stability in our lives so that we might grow. Last year I had a lot of interest … Read More

Just breathe

Kathy Krugerhappiness, meditation, peace, yoga32 Comments

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

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
