ENDOCANNABINOIDS/HYPERMOBILITY AND HEMP

“When the world says to give up, some people make their own miracles”.

Once again, a terrific information session in Bendigo on Sunday.  Thank you so much for the students who came.  I love seeing students I haven’t seen in my sessions for YEARS, and I did this time.  Lots of interest of course generated around hemp which is second only to celery in the mind of the public, HEMP is fantastic.

The more I read, the more I experience, the more I study, the more I am convinced that the endocannabinoid system is the key to good health – it is part of a team – yoga is a part, but diet, supplementation are important too.  Don’t be PART SMART.  I am sure when you really get into it you will also start to join the dots. I can’t help being evangelistic – when you have a product that really works, then you have to run with it.  Adding hemp to your diet is adding taste, not taking it away.  Read my books.  Go to www.myyogabooks.etsy.com.

We will shortly be adding the hemp food supplements to our yoga web site shop.  The Hemp Seed Oil, the Hemp seeds, and the Protein powder (not flavoured at this stage – although let me know if you are interested in chocolate, or coconut or even banana flavours!! I can get them)

NEXT HEMP INFORMATION SESSION:  I have opened the Woodend Studio up between 2.30 and 4 EVERY Saturday.  I hope you will take this opportunity to come see me, and talk about HEMP, and CBD oil and the NEW ESSENCE.  I will have stock on hand if you would like to try and buy.  CBD Oil $75 per 50ml, TYOH healing oil $35, and the new SATIVA Essence $25.

HEMP COOKERY:  Classes by request coming up in August.  A recipe book ‘JAHNE’S KANNABIS KITCHEN (now available on the etsy site),  will accompany the class.  Limited places available.  Please indicate your interest.

“CBD (Sativa) ENERGY ESSENCE”:  I am trialling a new edition to my CBD and herb essence family, inspired by Dr.Edward Bach.  I will let you know the results.   I truly believe in the memory of water, and look forward to what this essence can offer.  I imagine at this point it will be directed towards people who are suffering anxiety, depression and addictive behaviours due to pain on any level.

PHONE CONSULTATIONS:  If you would like to book a phone call with me.  We can explore your yoga business, expanding your studio, expanding your practice or asana /philosophy concerns – I am looking forward to hearing from you. There is a cost, it is a consultation the same as any other – an hour is an hour: $85 for an hour.

 

YOGA WITH JAHNE…..CLASS TIMES – all STUDIO classes $20

All on the Web Site.  Go to www.yogabeautiful.com.au  for classes.

COST:    Yoga $20 per Class Or  CLASS PASS – $135 per 10 CONSECUTIVEclasses (students of the studio for 3 years or more).   New students: $165 per 10 class pass (normally $200)  After 3 years as a student, the cheaper rate will apply.

 

UNITING CHURCH CLASSES (FREE or by donation)  Next door to the Police Station, Forest Road, Woodend.

Monday:12noon FREE lunch.  The 1pm yoga will be held at the Studio in Woodend, not at the Church.  The electrical system at the church ceased to function a few weeks back, and although it was repaired, still doesn’t work.  I don’t like doing yoga in -5 degrees, and I think my students are more discerning (sensible) too.

MOUNT MACEDON MONTHLY GET-TOGETHER:   The yoga “ladies who lunch”will happen again on the 9thof August at The Mount Macedon Hotel at 12noon.  This is getting more popular.  Please make time to come.  It is a lovely venue, wonderful “yoga girls”… the table is in front of the fire, the view is terrific, and the food is terrific thanks to a new and inspired chef.  I look forward to meeting you there.

NEW SHEPPARTON MASTERCLASS.  Date not decided.

WERRIBEE MASTER CLASS.  I have been asked to conduct a Restorative/Hypermobility Master Class in Werribee.  This will be held on Sunday the 20thOctober, which is the soonest we could get our diaries to align… such is life.

PARKING HOME STUDIO – 37 Morris Road, Woodend.    Please, Please – Park on white gravel in front of the studio.  I had it made especially so that it would be easier for you! If there is no room, then park in the drive-way directly opposite in front of double grey garage rolladoors. Not in front of neighbours driveways please.

Why Register with THE AUSTRALASIAN YOGA INSTITUTE? 

THIS IS IMPORTANT.

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 AT THE LEVEL AT WHICH YOU ARE NOW – STUDENT OR GRADUATE for your insurance to be valid, and you will need to supply a copy of a valid registration to be insured with AON.  If you insure as a graduate when you are still a student it may cause problems if there ever was a claim – it is possible you may not be insured because you didn’t tell the truth about your qualification.    You also need to forward a current first aidcertificate with your application and CPE when necessary (see below)

Please check your insurance requirements – keep up to date. We have moved to AON insurance.  You will be able to insure on-line BUT you will need a current (student or graduate) Registration to prove you are a member with us to get the advantages that a big firm like AON can offer.

CPE:  To bring us in line with INTERNATIONAL requirements rather than just Australian, we will only be requiring you to do your CPE every 3 years, do it round about the same time you do your first aid which is also a 3 year requirement.

Good afternoon Yogis and friends,

Just a reminder that I will be going to Crusoeden Body in Bendigo on Sunday (2pm to 4pm).  Among other things I will be introducing you to hemp, the miracle plant for the 21st Century, but in so far as I will be available, you can chat with me about yoga matters.  I will be bringing a few examples of product to demonstrate – once you understand what a wonderful gift Shiva gave us (as it says in ancient yoga texts), you will want to incorporate Hemp into your teaching and your life.  Like I have.

Every saturday between 2.30 and 4, I will be holding an open house in the STUDIO for you to come along and learn more about hemp, and how it applies to your yoga (and your life).  I had people coming in then, it seemed to be convenient, so I am making it official.  No appointment needed, just drop in.

Also, our Mt.Macedon Monthly lunch is happening again at 12noon on Friday the 9th August, The Mt.Macedon Hotel.  We always get the table in front of the fire, so no matter what the weather is like, we always feel warm and special.  Please come along – the group is getting bigger which is what I was hoping for when I started it.

I am considering incorporating the various certificates under one heading – THE DIPLOMA of HOLISTIC HEALING .  Some of you have got a long way down the path.  I am writing what I think will be the last certificate to complete the qualification – THE YOGA OF HERBS.  Which covers herbs, essential essences and Bach Flower Essences.  Not just learning about them, but also learning how to make your own..  Even if you only massage and use oils to do this,  this will be helpful, as I have learned that you need to have completed a course on oils, or worked with a mentor,  before an insurance company can cover you..  who knew?

I look forward to seeing you on Sunday.  Keep warm.

Namaste,  JAHNE

 

 

 

 

It’s a wintery day, and I have been in a cooking mood – especially since I have decided that we will start cookery classes at the studio beginning next Tuesday between 7pm and 9pm.

Here is a “Hemp seed, Date and Gingerbread” cake.  My kitchen doesn’t have a regular oven, I do have a microwave, and this 75cent Coles cake mix, with hemp seed milk instead of cows milk, hemp seeds, spices and dried fruit (dates, sultanas and dried apple diced) added – took about 10 minutes to put together, and 6 MINUTES to cook.  I also grease the ring pan and sprinkle with hemp seeds before I put the mix in to cook.  It helps the cake leave the pan easily, and adds another layer of hemp goodness.

I had a slice for afternoon tea, with a small scoop of home made yoghurt.  When I plated up, I sprinkled the cake with more hemp seeds, cinnamon and a little grated chocolate . I have to say it was FANTASTIC.  No calories, of course.

This cake is also spectacular as biscotti.  When it has cooled down, I will cut it in half.  Put that half in the cake tin, and then the other half sliced and cut into fingers, I bake again.  This time in my little French casserole-style oven for approximately 12 minutes,  at about 180fan until it is crisp. I have just one of these fingers with my evening drink .  Because it is crunchy it is very satisfying.  Cake always has me coming back for more – but with biscotti one small,  crunchy piece is enough.

If you just use your microwave to warm your coffee, or defrost food, try making a cake.  It is sooo very easy – and only takes 6 minutes – honestly.

I like easy cooking, and five ingredients…. and this is such a cake.

 

Namaste.  Jahne
