Please transfer all your account queries to Jacky at      If you want a direct answer from me, then as usual,

All mail to go to PO Box 14, Mt.Macedon. Vic. 3441.



Hello, hello. Wonderful to be back after the (extra long) Easter/ANZAC break.  I have never ever taken holidays (I couldn’t afford to when school fees were looming – and I got into the habit of WORK, WORK, WORK)., and even when I said I would be on holidays, students knew if they came to the door I would do a class.  Sometimes they did, sometimes they didn’t and the result was, I was chained to the studio.  It takes some getting used to having a break – but I am learning.  I like it.



Whilst I have been on holidays I have been updating and re-writing the TODDLER’S YOGA INSTRUCTORS COURSE which I have called “TINY TIGERS”.  Think “Tigger” in Winnie the Pooh.  I will load it onto the yogabeautiful site, but in the meanwhile I will hold it for you on a temporary moonfruit site.  I have saved  Cost: DIPLOMA Level $475, Certificate level $265.  Payment plan available.  If you have thought about taking your practice into this area, there is a great need.  Even half an hour of yoga teaching in a kindy or child care can make a huge difference.  You will be teaching your students (and trainee teachers) of tomorrow.



 DATE of the next Teacher Training:   Sunday 5thMay 2pm to 4pm  at my home studio (37 Morris Road in Woodend –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.  This fee applies to everyone. (Visitors – and/or not yet training – $30).

BENDIGO Teacher Training classes– Next class is the 4thJune at 3.30pm. Crusoeden Health.  Turn at the Metricon building on the highway in Kangaroo Flat just up from Bunnings on the same side.

SHEPPARTON MASTERCLASS.  The class at heidi’s studio, B.Yoga in Kialla was amazing – she was right, I couldn’t miss the building.  We are considering a regular teacher training class there, which would be the third Sunday in each month 2.30 to 4.30….the first one on the 19thMay. Please come on time.   Please register your interest with me or Heidi at

If you believe you are out there in the wilderness and want some company, we are here for you, and we are coming up to see you. We do some philosophy, some asana, and answer questions.  Please bring a paper and pen…



HYPERMOBILITY (the course)

The new course is on the ETSY site.

Watch my FREE UTUBE CHANNEL.  Hypermobility, Purushatras, and so on.  There is lots there – do one video per day..  Google “Jahne Hope-Williams You Tube”.  There is everything you need to start your study.  Don’t go to google first and then give up and go to our materials.  We have done the hard work for you – use it.


TAROT:  Also on the videos.  I am walking the viewers through the cards in my Revelation Tarot Deck. The new book will be loaded by the end of March.  I am starting to introduce my next 13 cards.  As soon as they are printed they will be on ETSY.   Google “Jahne Hope-Williams You Tube” to get there.  I need 100 subscribers before we are granted an easy link.



More Restorative (Remedial) classes.  Look at the web site for dates and times.



You will notice from the CLASSES on the Web Site that we now have meditation by donation on Tuesdays at 11am and Sundays at 9.15.  Please come.  I will be doing yoga nidra plus healing singing bowls.  In Term 2,  I will be adding a salt diffuser to the room where we do meditation so that whilst students are concentrating on their breath, the added salt in the air will be helping their respiratory systems.



We are your lineage.  You can pretend, you can take cheaper options, you can use all kinds of rationalization BUT WE ARE YOUR LINEAGE, your yoga family.  No-one else can be.   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. We are moving to AON insurance.  You will be able to insure on-line BUT you will need a current registration to prove you are a member with us to get the advantages that a big firm like AON can offer.  AJG quoted $3,600 to insure our studio!!  Another $1,766.00  – AON did exactly the same insurance for $376 with no fuss, no in depth passport type questions…..  When you open your own studio, you will be interested in this.



Go to the web site for class details.  Click on “classes”.   Any unplanned changes are always on the web, so please check the yogabeautiful site..




I write books to help you in your course.  Please download them, and then please use them in answering your modules.HYPERMOBILITY – The Course…. A certificate course.  If you teach yoga, you need this.  No excuses.


MODULE DRAWINGS, DOWNLOADS. You will notice on the bottom of every assessment there is a reminder that drawings need to be done, and in your own hand, and downloads of any kind will not be marked.  Every page needs to have your name, module number, and page number.


THE QUESTIONS: When I ask for drawings, I want drawings.  I have my reason for asking for them, so please don’t do market research amongst study buddies to see if they did or didn’t.  Please understand that unless I excuse you, unless you contact me and give me reasons why you among hundreds of students, should do it your way, I mean you to answer the questions as they appear – not as your friend or yoga teacher feels you should do.  I may not agree with them. I probably won’t. You can write your own modules, answer your own questions and decide how you will proceed, but I probably won’t mark it and you probably won’t graduate.  Your choice.  Life is tough.


EMAIL/POST:  Please use the email address  for anything to do with accounts,  or the usual 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 with us if you are teaching even if you have not graduated (especially if you have not graduated). Register,  insure and re-subscribe to the videos every 12 months.   Don’t leave these to the last minute.


POSTAL VOTING:  I don’t know whether you have noticed, but that red and white postal voting application appears to have been sent by none other than THE LABOUR PARTY and not the Electoral Office.    The return address on the envelope is the labour party.  Do you want the labour party to have all your information?  When you go to the polling both they only need to confirm you are a voter on the rolls, on the postal vote application the labour party has masses of information about you at their finger tips.  Voters beware!  At the very least BE AWARE.



Love and Blessings
