We are trying to make sense of our emails and phones – it isn’t simple.  Please transfer all your account queries to Jacky at yogafirst@optusnet.com.au If you want a direct answer from me, then as usual, yogafirst@netcon.net.au.

 

THE YOGA CLASSES:

We are expanding our classes under the wing of The Uniting Church. Hopefully in the near future to small nearby towns with Woodend as the hub (one town at a time of course). This is a wonderful validation of our work thus far.

Studio classes are building.  It is lovely to welcome back to those wonderful yogis who have been coming for so long.  It is this commitment that makes the difference as you get older.                                              Yoga is the way to age gracefully, and stave off the usual degenerative conditions that plague some folk in their senior years.

I have increased the number of Restorative Classes.  They are very popular.  Now my clients can hunt and peck, and take advantage of the a number of days, instead of just having one or two classes available.  I am hoping this will not be too much choice.  One can only try.

REMEMBER it is the sale of my art which makes my “by donation and free” classes possible.   Buying a folder of prints will support the Foundation.  The will be on sale from the 25th of November – launched at the private showing at my studio, details below.  

 

PRIVATE VIEWING of my art, at my studio on Sunday the 25th November between 2 and 4pm. This will be the first time in years I have held an exhibition in my studio, and it is a preview of the work in the print sets.   It will be just like a European “vernissage”. My work, a private view with nibbles and champagne. An art “happening” in the comfort of my studio. Come along, have a look at the artwork, spend time in the garden. A beautiful afternoon talking art (and yoga). If you are interested please contact me. It is a small studio, and the viewing will be by invitation.  Remember it is the sale of my art-work that makes free yoga classes possible. By enrolling in The Foundation print Club, you will become a member of the Foundation – the annual $75 joining fee is included in your print purchase, and receive 5 ready to frame A5 prints on beautiful 300 gsm paper in a folder in one of the three different sets (your choice).  *Buddhist images * Spiritual/Christian Images * Mini-Masters

 

A KOMBUCHA CLASS.

I have a dedicated group of students who have what they call “animal farm” in their kitchen. Their scobies are thriving, and their Kombucha is as bubbly as”bubbly. Mine is too. You can make it easily – and save your family approximately $10 per wine bottle of Kombucha. It hardly takes any time at all to make even for those people who don’t think they have time. My microwave boils the water and dissolves the sugar, and apart from decanting the brew, this is about as hard as it gets! My last batch was quite strong, and over that few warm days I added mineral water and it was fantastic. One time I even added Rose’s Limejuice. Even better. I am going to do that again.

If you are interested in starting an kombucha “farm” complete with scobie, just ask.

 

ART HEALS www.jahnehopewilliams.com (new website)

I am totally involved in the progress I am making, and loving the thought that it is making yoga possible for so many people.. I started my miniatures with a 20cent size, then I went to 3 inches, but that was too big, and now I am back to about a 50cent size in 3 collections of 5 images each. MINI MASTERS, BUDDHIST and SPIRITUAL. I will have prints made of them, and sell them to you in a folder, ready to frame. Just keep an eye on the NEW web site www.jahnehopewilliams.net for their progress.  I still have a couple of glitches I am waiting for the web people to fix, so regarding dates and times just look at the details on the site.  If you get confused, then email me.

ART WORKSHOPS:

*November 3rd to December 8th: Saturdays for 5 weeks.   Tempera on board

ONGOING ART CLASS ON TUESDAYS from7pm- 9pm

COST $250 for 5 classes – or $50 per session

All materials will be provided.

By the end of the 5 classes you will have a unique image to take home, and frame to put in your own meditation room. Maybe good enough, stunning enough to be an heirloom. No painting experience needed. If you are nimble enough to sign your own name, you can do these classes.

 

THE ALCHEMIST ART STORE in Sunbury. Our demonstration…Happened on Saturday 13th October at 4pm. (The store is in the same shopping centre as Aldi in Gap Rd. Right next door to the Asian Food store). It was fantastic – about 10 in the audience, and I was able to demonstrate (and the class was able to play) with materials that the store stock and I have used for many years. Thank goodness for the Alchemist. If you came to class, or you are interested in miniatures, egg-tempera, or oil pastels and gilding, please come to my studio and learn the finer points. I teach the methods used by DaVinci and Cellini – who taught “decorum” alongside painting. Good combo!

 

SCULPTURE REQUEST: I have let it be known that we are looking for a sculptor or an iron worker/blacksmith. THE BLUE LADY totally shattered in the cold this year, and as she was our logo and a landmark in our town for 25 years, I am trying to replace her in some way. I have been donated an almost full size Jesus statue (concrete – probably rescued from an old catholic grotto) which I am going to paint in cobalt, and decorate in interfaith symbols (“OM” being one). The sculptor needs to build a frame to raise and support this very heavy statue. No crosses – Jesus has been there and I don’t want to send him back. If you are interested in tendering for this job, please email me at yogafirst@netcon.net.au. No scribbles on the back of an envelope please, this is a serious job, and I want to know everything about how you would execute the brief.

 

MAKE ART MAKE YOGA MAKE MONEY:

No matter if you are an artist of any form, or a yoga teacher in any discipline, like me you need to make money. If like me, you want to give it away that’s terrific (and great fun), but you have to make it first. If you don’t have it, you can’t give it away.   There are still some glitches on the site regarding times but you can read the times I have inserted in the course details. www.jahnehopewilliams.net

Why Register with THE AUSTRALASIAN YOGA INSTITUTE? 

It is about LINEAGE. You trained with us, you are a part of our lineage (or we are a part of yours), Registration supports this. PLEASE, PLEASE CHECK YOUR REGISTRATION. You need to be currently registered for your insurance to be valid, and you will need to supply a copy of a valid registration to be insured.   Please check your insurance requirements – keep up to date. They change quickly.

 

REGISTRATION – CONTINUING EDUCATION REQUIREMENT.

THIS APPLIES TO EVERYONE.   We have fallen in line with other organisations and ask people who are registered with us and wish to re-register to do at least one short course in the year as a continuing education requirement. You need to keep up. You can do one of my little courses on ETSY, or someone else’s, doesn’t have to be onerous, just something to keep you on your academic toes so to speak. Just watching a DVD won’t be enough unless you actually write a report on what you watched and why you watched it – the outcome – how it changed how you do what you do.

 

REALLY HELPFUL BOOKS:

YOGABEAUTIFUL NEWS from THE STUDIO, WOODEND.

 

THE YOGA CLASSES:

We are expanding our classes under the wing of The Uniting Church. Hopefully in the near future to small nearby towns with Woodend as the hub (one town at a time of course). This is a wonderful validation of our work thus far.

If you came to yoga once, and are hesitating to come back, don’t sit at home. We miss you. Yes you are going to feel your muscles. If you had been gardening you would congratulate yourself, However if you feel your muscles from yoga you get worried when there is no need. Your muscles are loving it, and I am here to encourage you to take the next step. Otherwise you might as well just watch a DVD. It is not the same. The yoga girls are changing and growing stronger – and it could be you.

REMEMBER it is the sale of my art which makes these classes possible.   Buying a folder of prints will support the Foundation.  The will be on sale from the 25th of November – launched at the private showing at my studio.  

 

THE STUDIO

Studio classes are building.  Welcome back to those wonderful yogis who have been coming for so long.  It is this commitment that makes the difference as you get older.                                              Yoga is the way to age gracefully, and stave off the usual degenerative conditions that plague some folk in their senior years.  the couch is not your friend as comfortable as it may be.  Come visit us – I have given more restorative, classes so you can hunt and peck for a class time that will suit you.

WELCOMEBACK

This month we welcome back those students who have been absent (AWOL) sometimes for some years, and for whatever reason have linked back in.  Welcome, Welcome.

I have to say, that when you come back to us although we don’t always charge a “returning fee” in order to get your files out of archive (although we have for students who have been absent for more than 5 years with no emailing or correspondence with us) , we do hope that if you have been teaching you will bring your registration up to date, you will insure properly -ie if you are not graduated you should be insured as a student, not a graduate as it may influence payment of any future claims and i think only our office of AJG do this insurance, you will have a first aid certificate if you are teaching, and you will pay for your videos.  These are admin details, but important ones.  I have had students grumble, but I have to tell you that any other professional school or institute would make you start again at the beginning even after a 12 month lapse..

Although we say you can take a long time to finish, we do not say that it is OK to remain silent.  We require an email or a letter at least monthly to let us know where you are with the course.  You are our students…  we think you are, but if we don’t hear from you and the email is bouncing back, we imagine you have not just deferred, you have withdrawn.  We take that point of view until we hear otherwise.  To be a student, you need to attend to the admin details.

 

THE YOGA OF KOMBUCHA

Just loaded to the ETSY site…“THE YOGA OF KOMBUCHA”. Kombucha with herbs and crystals, talking about the chakras I have researched, and the doshas and how the various kombucha recipes boost these chakras, and the effects they have on the dosas.  This is a very complete book of Kombucha.  You will learn how the various herbs help the dosas, what they increase, which they diminish.  If what you are looking for is “look good -tastes good” then this is the booklet for you.

KOMBUCHA CLASS.     Now, if you want a class, please make an appointment with me. There is an hourly charge, however, can bring three friends, and pay $20 each… You will get a scobie and a bottle of Kombucha to take home. I will also show you how to make yoghurt, and Tofu. Email me at yogafirst@netcon.net.au

YOGA AT THE STUDIO and the Church

We had a fabulous lunch at the church today – not that anyone goes there just for lunch, they go for yoga too.  For lunch we had a variety of soups, asparagus roll-up (very 1960’s), a variety of savoury sandwiches and lovely cakes and slices, fresh bread… you missed out if you weren’t at this lunch!  Plus, I love the company.  We laugh.  This morning the yoga discussion was sparked by a UTube  “YOGA IN KILTS’ video.  I am not sure it inspired anyone to take up yoga, but maybe another sort of inspiration was going on here – the boys looked particularly strong and healthy.  Although I did not introduce the video, it gave the group a heap to talk about regarding yoga and the how-to’s.  It was worthwhile.  I invited the guys to wear kilts next week.

STUDIO CLASSES . Getting stronger and more people each week.  Thank you everyone…   Please keep in mind that the consecutive class passes are CONSECUTIVE. I love a phone call to alert me if you can’t come, but that does not mean that the pass will extend for one extra week free. CONSECUTIVE IS CONSECUTIVE.

 

ART HEALS

The art class at THE ALCHEMIST in Sunbury was worthwhile, fantastic in fact..  Thanks to all who attended.  There was about 10 there, and as it was not just a demo – everyone got to try the various materials – 10 was about the limit at the table at any one time.  We looked at some of the ancient methods, the renaissance art materials and how to use them, how to make them.  I am having a workshop here at the Studio in these techniques if any of you would like to take part.

WEEKLY ART CLASS – Tuesdays 7pm to 9pm .  Mixed media.  Cost $250 for 5 classes or $50 per class.

ART EXHIBITION (VERNISSAGE) 25th November 2pm to 4pm

ART WORKSHOP (Egg Tempera/miniatures) Sunday 9th December 10am to 4pm (Please bring a snack to share for lunch) Cost$145 – limit 5 people.  PS: No animals were killed to make the various materials necessary for the ancient methods of preparing the boards.  It was a question I was asked, and researched to find alternatives.  I am sure DaVinci didn’t worry about such things, but we must.  Does this mean that Vegans would refuse a DaVinci original because he used rabbit skin glue in preparing his boards for painting?

If you want to learn on a regular basis….Experience the joy of painting and drawing by learning to trust your intuitive self with me!. Painting this natural, gentle way allows you to let go of the inner critic that keeps you away from your full aliveness and creativity. The oil pastels we use on a Tuesday are a way of achieving a quick result, and you get to touch and smooch the medium across the paper. It is like painting with lipstick!

All you need is the desire to paint, and the courage to express yourself. No art experience necessary.

 

TUESDAYS from7pm- 9pm (Mixed Media)

COST $250 for 5 classes – we are taking September bookings. We experiment every week with new materials and skills to enhance your finished image.

All materials will be provided.  By the end of the class you will have a unique image to take home, and frame to put in your own meditation room. Maybe good enough, stunning enough to be an heirloom. No painting experience needed. If you are nimble enough to sign your own name, you can do these classes.

 

SATURDAYS 9am SUMII (ZEN YOGA) BRUSHPAINTING – “ONE BREATH ONE LINE” $20 per session.     This is the traditional painting on rice paper, but once the fundamentals are achieved, with a twist. On the longer classes, we will be doing it the “zen way” and painting things that can’t be painted. Love, joy, yoga, spirit, speed…etc etc.   No right, no wrong, just what you can do. Your expression. We will be using traditional materials, we will be doing yoga breathing, AND A PAINTING will be the result.. Grind the ink, use the brush, paint the painting….. Sounds easy, BUT as in yoga, the foundations are everything.

 

SCULPTURE REQUEST: I have let it be known that we are looking for a sculptor or an iron worker/blacksmith. THE BLUE LADY totally shattered in the cold this year, and as she was our logo and a landmark in our town for 25 years, I am trying to replace her in some way. I have been donated an almost full size Jesus statue (concrete – probably rescued from an old catholic grotto) which I am going to paint in cobalt, and decorate in interfaith symbols (“OM” being one). The sculptor needs to build a frame to raise and support this very heavy statue. No crosses – Jesus has been there and I don’t want to send him back. If you are interested in tendering for this job, please email me at yogafirst@netcon.net.au. No scribbles on the back of an envelope please, this is a serious job, and I want to know everything about how you would execute the brief.

 

MY PENDULUM    My ETSY shop sells everything pendulum and this week I am putting up some new pearly ones. You will love them. Pendulums you can carry with you at all times.   YOUR SESSION: We can identify additional minerals and supplements, balance your diet, test for food sensitivities…. Health, business whatever. $55 one question, $75 two questions $150 for a general life reading for people who are stuck. On the farm I never made a change without dowsing first..  If you want a life reading, your house made well from underground streams or geopathic stress, or want your garden explored for sculpture, rock or major tree placement sites… I can help you.

It is about LINEAGE. You trained with us, you are a part of our lineage (or we are a part of yours), Registration supports this. PLEASE, PLEASE CHECK YOUR REGISTRATION. You need to be currently registered for your insurance to be valid, and you will need to supply a copy of a valid registration to be insured.   Please check your insurance requirements – keep up to date. They change quickly.

REGISTRATION – CONTINUING EDUCATION REQUIREMENT. THIS APPLIES TO EVERYONE.

We have fallen in line with other organisations and ask people who are registered with us and wish to re-register to do at least one short course in the year as a continuing education requirement. You need to keep up. You can do one of my little courses on ETSY, or someone else’s, doesn’t have to be onerous, just something to keep you on your academic toes so to speak. Just watching a DVD won’t be enough unless you actually write a report on what you watched and why you watched it – the outcome – how it changed how you do what you do.

PARKING HOME STUDIO – 37 Morris Road, Woodend.

PLEASE, PLEASE Park on white gravel in front of the studio. I had the garden made into an attractive parking lot. When it was lawn you didn’t even think about parking on the lawn or the nature strip. Now it is especially for parking, you park blocks away and walk. What is this about? If my park places are full, you can park in the drive-way directly opposite in front of double grey garage rolladoors. Not in front of neighbours driveways please.

 

MONTHLY TEACHER TRAINING AT THE HOME STUDIO – and end of year prize giving.

The next one will be on Sunday 4th November , 2pm to 4pm  at my home studio (37 Morris Road in Woodend – yes, it is Cup Weekend – but I am still having Teacher Training). THIS WEEK WILL BE THE ANNUAL PRIZE GIVING OPPORTUNITY.

THE PRIZES WE ARE LOOKING AT PRESENTING ARE:  

  1. EVEREST : The teacher/student who  climbed the “sacred mountain”, had enormous physical challenges and kept in touch and come to yoga no matter what.  And/or never skipped a beat in their teacher training.
  2. ENTREPRENEUR OF THE YEAR:  The teacher who has swum against the tide, and made great strides in their business at a time when everyone else was experiencing downturns.
  3. DISTANCE STUDENT OF THE YEAR:  For the student who although learning by distance, juggled home, family, work physical and emotional difficulties, and still managed to keep up with their course, letting us know where she was at, and what she was doing at every point.
  4. THE INSPIRER: The student or teacher who is an inspiration to her whole community, not just her students.  A philanthropist.

 

There is no need to book. Bring writing materials, and be early. If you are teacher Training student then the cost of the afternoon is $20 (to bring it in line with yoga classes). This fee applies to everyone. If you are a visitor and not formally a student teacher with us then the cost is $30 – for a 2 hour class! Come.

BENDIGO Teacher Training classes – Next class is Tuesday 6th November at 3.30pm Turn at the Metricon building on the highway in Kangaroo Flat. It is a traffic light intersection, just up from Bunnings. Crusoeden is the building behind Metricon building, and faces Church Street. It’s easy to find. Cost: $20 per class (to bring it in line with the cost of a yoga class) for everyone who attends – thank you. (Directors – Jayne Boyle  – crusoedenbody@bigpond.com).  Regular classes held – please email for timetable.

 

UNHOMOGENISED AHIMSA MILK

If you are REALLY into great yoghurt, cream, butter or cottage cheese (and milk of course), then go no further than MOTHERCOWDAIRY run by the Hare Krishna people. The milk comes from totally free range cows, it is hormone and antibiotic free, is rich and creamy, naturally high in A2 and calcium and is a fair-go for local farmers. For your local stockiest, email: info@mothercowdairy.com.au

 

CALCIUM WITHOUT PILLS

Of course you could use the milk above, but if you are milk-free, here is an idea that came out of our discussions on Sunday Teacher Training.

Get a jar, and put a few eggs in the jar (4 perhaps?) cover the eggs with fresh squeezed lemon juice. Leave it for a week or so, turning at least once a day, very gently. The shells will dissolve somewhat (leaving the eggs intact). After a week or so, gently pour off the lemon juice, and use about 15ml perday in a drink – your total calcium requirement is in this lemon/egg shell juice. You can use the eggs in cooking.

 

REALLY HELPFUL BOOKS:

ETSY, ETSY www.myyogabooks.etsy.com

I write books to help you in your course. Please download them, and then please use them in answering your modules. WATCH OUT FOR THE NEXT ONE – NARRATIVE MEDICINE. A certificate course. If you teach yoga, you need this. No excuses.

Chakras – Your personal power house.Yamas – The guide for life * Restorative Yoga * Yin Yoga and Yin Yoga for KidsRed String of FateChakra Enhancing oil

Rose Petal Jam – a Cookbook * How to be a Yoga Teacher by Home Study * The Sacro Cranial Connection * Tea leaf Reading – The Chart *  Yoga for pregnancy * 5 ELEMENT YOGA (The 5 Tibetans) + charts   *  SacroCranial Connection * THE YOGA OF KOMBUCHA and more….

 

Please never imagine that I don’t read your modules – I do. If you misquote, if you don’t understand (no matter how many pages you do) I will pick it up. What will you find on ETSY? YAMAS, CHAKRAS, HYPERMOBILITY, THE FIVE TIBETANS AND TEMPLATES and more. There are lots of books there to help you in your progress to graduation. If you do your course WITHOUT reading the hypermobility books, you will find your work being questioned.

 

EMAIL/POST:  Please use the email address  yogafirst@optusnet.com.au  for anything to do with accounts,  or the usual yogafirst@netcon.net.au. to get to me. If you do want to speak to me personally, then email, make a time suitable for both of us, and then we can chat.  If you do it this way, rather than just “wing it”, you can be reasonably sure I have time, and you will get my attention.  POSTAL ADDRESS is not at my home –Please address all land mail to PO Box 14, Mt.Macedon.  Vic. 3441.  Until you see a change written here in large letters, that is where it will be.

 

Don’t forget to Register if you are teaching even if you have not graduated (especially if you have not graduated), insure and re-subscribe to the videos every 12 months.   Don’t leave these to the last minute.

 

Love and Blessings
