THE AUSTRALASIAN YOGA INSTITUTE IS MISSION DRIVEN AND MEMBER SUPPORTED. BECOME A REGISTERED MEMBER TODAY.

 

THE INSTITUTE.

Over the past few months, people who have not contacted me for a long time, years, suddenly popped back sending modules in the post (with no covering letter, no sorry, no explanation) and expecting everything to be as it was 4, 5 and sometimes 9 years ago! Whilst I encourage and applaud their new found enthusiasm they have misunderstood what a school at this level is and how it operates. It is not a charity. The Institute teaches yoga BUT IT IS A BUSINESS and that is how we manage to keep on teaching.

I keep saying that if you don’t keep communicating, your file will be archived – and there is a cost to start up again. And I mean it.

In most cases these students have already started teaching (?) without the value of Registration or Insurance. This is against everything that we teach. I have spent my whole life working to enhance the value and status of our yoga teachers, and if you go out and teach without the benefit of knowledge, without Registration which joins you to the Sangha, and without insurance which protects you from the unforseen, then you are cutting across everything that we as a school stand for. Think about it please. Don’t expect me just to smile and let you drop in and drop out whenever you like. If you don’t communicate with me, I will consider that you have dropped out, and there will be a charge to drop back in.

This is a drawing of Ganesha, “the remover of obstacles”.  I think that a few of us have obstacles that need removing.

 

A SCAM

I am sorry to have to bring this to you, but there is a scam going around. When it came my way I felt there was something wrong with the request from the get-go. A person emailed asking for two classes per week for 6 weeks for 5 people. The wording was odd, but the person said they were not well, and wanted these classes for a pre-wedding party. They wanted the girls to be fit and well and feeling good. A limo would bring them to my address. I thought I would ask for premium rates+ to see if they were serious. They didn’t blink an eye.

This is where things get interesting. They wanted to pay by credit card BUT wanted me to charge the money for the classes PLUS THE MONEY FOR THE LIMO which was substantial, and give the money to the limo people myself. Apart from the fact that they were reluctant to give me identifying details, and when we checked, the ABN of the bus company was incorrect, THE WHOLE DEAL IS ILLEGAL. It took quite a few emails before she went away. I have wasted my time – don’t waste yours. If the deal doesn’t “smell right” as Poirot would say – back off. If it kwacks like a duck, if it looks like a duck, it probably is a duck.

 

TEACHING TO THE REHAB. AND RECOVERY COMMUNITY

My idea is to begin by teaching at post graduate level to one SENIOR TEACHER (graduate) from each state if possible. We can expand from there. This work is increasingly my focus and I am inviting you to join me.

Even yoga teachers who think they haven’t experienced addiction need this teaching, as at the present the statistic is that 60% of the population are addicts. Hard drugs, prescribed medications, alcohol (a “biggie”), nicotine. So 6 out of 10 people standing in front of you have the possibility of being addicted. Even if you can’t see this, even if you can’t recognize what is in front of you they need special help, special understanding – people don’t wear placards saying “I am an addict – please help me!”.

Do you want to help? I will be training you to help you, to help them. An amazing mentoring style course.

 

PAINTINGS, PRINTS, TAROT AND HIGH TEA.

This exhibition allows me to teach pro-bono to the rehab community, and give out scholarships… It is not just painting for the sake of painting.

I am continuously changing the exhibition. Please hop in to Reds in Woodend. I will keep you up to date when prints of the work are loaded on the ETSY site… (I am having them professionally photographed this Thursday). Remember, everything you buy does help a student learn yoga, or train to be a yoga teacher, and maybe helps me to be able to give out scholarships – and I don’t put anything on the site that isn’t useful (or beautiful). www.myyogabooks.etsy.com.

The next show will be a “HIGH TEA +Tarot” to herald the release of my new “silk finish” Revelation tarot deck and new Buddha/Angel Meditation prints. As usual it will be at Reds Restaurant in Woodend, and probably at the end of July. We haven’t settled on an exact date yet. There will be a cost, you will have to book for the high tea although the exhibition will be open to all.

A Tea Leaf reading will be included in the price of the High Tea. Remember when I used to do it every day at my little café/yoga room – Mt.Macedon Tea Rooms. People came from all over to get a reading, it was fun, it was good..   On this occasion a Tarot Reader will be available. This Tarot reading is NOT included in the price, and you will need a separate booking.

 

Why Register with THE AUSTRALASIAN YOGA INSTITUTE? 

No matter what your field of study you need to register to be “legal”.  If you are a Doctor, physio, hairdresser. Their Registering bodies require it,  and will stop you practising if you don’t keep it up annually.  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.

It took me years to get the Institute’s profile up, and its status recognised so that your registration means something… and it does.  By not registering you are saying that your and your Institute (us) are not worth acknowledging as professionals.

 

REGISTRATION – CONTINUING EDUCATION REQUIREMENT.

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.

NEW ADDITIONS TO THE SHOP AND ETSY.

I write books to help you in your course. Please download them, and then please use them in answering your modules.

Why haunt libraries for information on the chakras, yamas, and other yoga philosophies relevant to the course (or The Tarot). It is all on ETSY. We do plan to update our shop (and the prices) with the new web update, but we will never be able to offer the options and service of etsy which has millions of customers.   For you who have never used ETSY please visit. It is fabulous and oh so EASY.   You will find all our books, our DVD’s and CD’s on ETSY.   (The Paul Grilley DVD’s are on our web site shop). Please go to www.myyogabooks.etsy.com. Or www.yogabeautiful.com.au. for the Paul Grilley DVD’s (price about to go up as the exchange rate gets more difficult). If you are new and haven’t read about YAMAS, CHAKRAS then I have distilled them for you. Go to the Etsy site as above and have a look – especially at the new book and DVD on Hypermobility..

 

Affirmation (repeated by request)

Everything I have lived through has a story to share with me. I accept the wisdom of each story, and understand it is not necessary for me to enjoy the story.

I heal by allowing myself without judgement to fully experience all the emotional energies of my being. I observe and participate without the need to judge or interpret them. Every one of my experiences has a gift within them, and I gratefully accept them as contributing to my growth and forward movement in life.

This new work is based on the tibetan word for “Loving-Kindness”.   I think it would look lovely in a meditation room. I am releasing prints of this at the end of the month at the next exhibition and launch.

 

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

YOGA NEWSLETTER 21st August’17

THE AUSTRALASIAN YOGA INSTITUTE IS MISSION DRIVEN AND MEMBER SUPPORTED.  BECOME A REGISTERED MEMBER TODAY.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY
  I have been urging my students to ask themselves “what am I prepared to give up in order to get the life that I want”. Some people bring to class a large piece of paper with two things on it, but for myself, I am up to my second full page. I have the life that I want, but now I am refining. I would ask you to try it for yourself. It seems easy, but it isn’t. For instance: Giving up your current view of pain (any kind of pain), giving up people who are unhelpful even though this is challenging because you are comfortable in a way. Giving up being the only person in the room who is ‘right’. Giving up a story about yourself that is perhaps not accurate. Giving up a story about yourself that protects you from the truth. I could go on. Try it. Even if you write down things like giving up “plastic bags” or “chocolate” .
One day a student said to my teacher that their mind would not be still. It chattered and whined constantly even in meditation. She answered “When your back gets straight, then your mind will get still”

NOTES FROM JAHNE..
Things are changing at speed.

My Car: Does anyone out there want a beautiful little Mazda MX6 with a recon motor to do up? Let me know. I love her and would like her to end up somewhere where she will be loved – not a wreckers yard. I have replaced her with a lovely white Celica. I am falling in love with the celica, although I do get nostalgic when I look at the MX6 (a great, great car).

ART: I am drawing like mad, and starting to get the swing back. What a great life I have – I get to choose. Well I did design it, so if it wasn’t to my liking it would be my fault.

EMAIL:
  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 – small mail box out in the open means that rain is an issue. Please address all land mail to the address it has always been – PO Box 14, Mt.Macedon. Vic. 3441. Until you see a change written here in large letters, that is where it will be.
PHONE:
  I have a new landline. 0354 274 383. I had discussions with Telstra. The outcome was my landline and internet brought on line (they tell me NBN – but I am not sure). How does one tell?   The book and the DVD are available via ETSYwww.myyogabooks.etsy.com Thank you all for the great interest. I am on the second printing of the DVD. It must be good. Keep in mind that this was made for me for yoga teachers, and people who know the body. It is not a Jane Fonda DVD for the beautiful people. It is INFORMATION you can use in your classes, and I urge you to do so.   The Theosophical Society talk on hypermobility, in Melbourne on the 23rd of September. It seemed like a long way away – but it is fast approaching. Please make every effort to go. Take friends, get your class, your teachers to come. It is free.
The book and the DVD are on www.myyogabooks.etsy.com Restorative Yoga Therapy – Level 3 RESTORATIVE LEVEL 3
  Please keep in mind that RYTA200, level 1 and 2 need to be done BEFORE level 3.The workshop timetable which includes LEVEL 3 attached above. There is a workshop for Level 2 happening on the 3rd of September BOOK NOW – don’t just rock up at 9. If I haven’t got any bookings I won’t be just sitting waiting for you.. I will be at Church. If you do book for the 9am, you can you can also stay for the teacher training.
Teacher Training PLUS, 3rd September.
  2-4pm Teacher Training as usual
PLUS WORKSHOP – 9am to 2pm then 4 to 5.30pm, Restorative Level 2. For first timers the cost will be $375 for the workshop, plus the cost of distance training (go to www.restore.moonfruit.com). For those who have done the workshop before, $50 for the refresher. This is a repeat of the first workshop (a reminder perhaps) with additions. A reminder or a help with the book and assignments. These levels all contribute towards helping you to be a better therapist. If you have not almost completed the teacher training course then you won’t have the anatomical and philosophical vocabulary to understand what we are doing. So work on your course, do the Restorative level 1 and 2, and keep this in mind for the next step. Come to my talks, and book for a workshop with me. Or book for a one-on-one to see how I work.
INSURANCE
  PLEASE NOTE: If you are not teaching then there is no need for insurance. If you are teaching then you will need to be registered, and get insurance. You can buy insurance anywhere, you don’t have to come through us HOWEVER, if you are a student, then there are few companies who will insure you. Ours is one – it used to be the only one. If you get insurance without telling the company that you are not a graduate, then you are not covered.

A charge for Registration and Insurance and $275 for a yearly video subscription is nothing in the light of that. INSURANCE ALTERNATIVES. AJGallagher seems to be the only one who will insure students who have not graduated but are teaching. I am looking at Dancesurance. They appear to insure students cheaply, and, if you have a studio, they are really the only ones who insure this with understanding. Cost? $276pa.  

Why Register with THE AUSTRALASIAN YOGA INSTITUTE?

Thank you all the students who have responded to this call. Registration says you are a member of our school (and proud to be so), and at the very least the income received from the cost of registration allows us to give out scholarships, and help others in their desire to teach. We have a wonderful lineage that goes back through the Gita School to India and Tibet. Support us by being a fabulous teacher, and in time Affiliating with us, and taking our traditions into a complete Teacher Training School of your own.

CLASS TIMES

Please note these have changed.

THE STUDIO – 37 Morris Road.

Tuesdays – 10 am Restorative.
Wednesdays: 12.30 Hatha (AYI teacher trainees welcome)

Saturday – Hatha 10 am, Philosophy 4 pm HYPERMOBILITY AND YOGA: I have been setting my intention to have students with
JHMS, come to me especially, and they are coming. Thank you for those new students
who are being drawn to me for specialized yoga classes. When there is a small class,
and everyone has hypermobility to some degree, then what happens is magic. Students
who have struggled in class and in life see the light – can see that there is help, and can
see how to help themselves. After a lifetime of symptoms they now have a cause they
can work around.

MASSAGE AT THE BENTINCK
  I am offering HOT-ROCK Massage using my very special Death Valley rocks, not just some EBay leftovers. Also (one-on-One) Restorative Yoga Therapy which includeshotrock massage – Health benefit rebates are possible for the one-on-one).

Please note that at the Bentinck, the Medical Clinic that we have all been waiting for is nearing completion, however, more work is being done on the driveways and ambulance bay. If it is full, park opposite. When you are walking to the yoga room mind your step. I am constantly reminding the workmen that people use the path – but they sometimes leave building materials about.

TEACHER TRAINING AT THE HOME STUDIO: 

The next will be on Sunday 3rd September, 2pm to 4pm at my home studio (37 Morris Road in Woodend). This class will also include a RESTORATIVE YOGA THERAPY CERTIFICATION AND REFRESHER (for those who have done the previous workshop).

  It was snowing today. Quite heavily up the mountain, although just flurries here. I was very surprised when I went up for the mail and saw the beautiful whiteness, and policemen patrolling the roads.
THE TAROT
  I have almost completed the Revelation Tarot which goes in for printing this week. A reminder: You can get readings in person, or on line. I am still to organize skype.

LAST WEEK:
We don’t have terrorists in this country – we have TELSTRA AND NBN. I am being held ransom… etc. 

WHAT HAPPENED NEXT:
Well after Telstra sent out a phone technician to fix my internet(?), which didn’t help after 7 days without internet. I kept ringing trying to get someone to listen, and having decided at the outset to use it as a yoga exercise in patience (I only raised my voice once), I managed to get through to a lovely lady, and noticing she was Indian or Asian by her voice,  I started by introducing myself as a yoga teacher. This led to a great yoga conversation, which led to booking an on-line technician the following day which she said would only last about 4 hours!!!  She was sure that I could get my internet on with this tecchies help over the phone.  I felt very inadequate to the task, but she was reassuring and I thought to myself, If my teacher can walk across America with no means of support, and learn to be a motor mechanic, a baker, a waiter etc – then  I could do this with Telstra. I asked for God’s help (almost continuously).  

The next morning in my meditation God said to me to turn on my computer, turn on the modem (I had turned it off).  I couldn’t see the sense and resisted. He said again “turn on your computer.” I did, and bingo, it burst into action!!! I spoke to my case manager at Telstra to thank them for whatever steps they had taken and to cancel my appointment with the tecchie. They assured me they had done nothing, and were mystified. A few days later, I spoke to one of my students about this “miracle” as she was having problems which seemed to be the same. She prayed, and she got success –the internet came to life – after three weeks with no internet. There is a God (and He is not a chair!)

HYPERMOBILITY….  

This was one of the main subjects of discussion for our Teacher Training. It was fabulous,  with inspirations coming from all sides. Every day I work in this field more “lights” come on for me too. I work across a number of fields in a one-on-one (which is the best way to work with a hyper-mobile client until they have understood the problem and have a modicum of control over their body). This is what makes it difficult to teach – you can’t easily identify subtle indications of hyper-mobility, or do a full client work up within the confines of a group class. One-on-ones are the answer, but not everyone who is hyper-mobile believes it is a problem, as most of their life (if it is over flexibility), it has been viewed as a gift. As special. If you are interested in this field of INSPIRED BODYWORK, then let me know.  

I understand the need a workshop that identifies the problems. If you have not almost completed the teacher training course then you won’t have the anatomical and philosophical vocabulary to understand what we are doing. So work on your course, and keep this in mind for the next step. Come to my talks, and book for a workshop with me. Or book for a one-on-one to see how I work.

The Theosophical Society has asked me to give a talk on hypermobility in Melbourne on the 23rd of September. YOGA AUSTRALIA has asked me to talk on hypermobility in Melbourne in February.  I believe that this is essential in your yoga teaching. So you can catch me in September at the Theosophical Society Theatrette, or, you can keep watching this space to find out other dates and times, especially February….  

I have started a new e-booklet on Hypermobility. It will be finished by the September seminar.   VIDEOS: Please note. When you first signed up you were given a password to access the videos. There is lots more on them than you may anticipate, so go for it… watch them. They will answer a lot of your questions, and they will save you having to do some questions a second time.. If you want to get your Restorative Yoga Therapy Certification at Level 2 and move on to level 3, then you will need to do your LEVEL 1 FIRST. You need that certificate BEFORE you can do Level 2. Please pay attention. For previous students: If you have done the last workshop, loved it and would like to repeat it (every class is a little different)  you can for a small fee, I would love you to join in and share your experiences since your workshop.

NEXT RESTORATIVE WORKSHOP. THIS MONTH MUST BE VERY BUSY FOR YOU ALL, AS NO-ONE HAS BOOKED. BUT I WILL CONCENTRATE ON IT SHORTLY, AND SEE WHAT DAYS AND TIMES ARE SUITABLE FOR YOU. EMAIL ME IF YOU HAVE WANTED TO COME BUT THE TIMES HAVE BEEN BAD FOR YOU.

“THE RESTORATIVE YOGA THERAPY ALLIANCE” – is a project we are currently working on, using The International Yoga Therapy Assoc. as our model. It will take us years to get to their level of perfection – but it is something you need. It will be an organisation aligned to The Australasian Yoga Institute. A branch of The Institute which will be inviting papers, focusing and sharing the more therapy aspects of what we do in Restorative Yoga. Not a medical model, but certainly a healing model. I have begun the steps needed for my own registration at the highest level of the American/International peak body (I am registered already), so that I can encourage my graduates to do the same.

 

WITH REGARD TO STUDENT INSURANCE AND REGISTRATION. From the 1st July there will be changes, BIG ONES I BELIEVE….  I am working to make it a positive step. The insurance company will be looking after the insurances totally.  Watch this space. Registration will be mandatory if you want insurance, and will be STUDENT or GRADUATE level.  This will reflect on your insurance policy. The cost of the insurance will also change, but I don’t quite know how or to what extent yet. Watch this space.

WHEN YOU SHOULD INSURE: We based the course on graduating students in an average of 18 months to two years.  Keeping this in mind we thought (because you would not be teaching until you finished the course)  you would not need insurance for those two years, so we gave you the first 12 months insurance and registration free, and ditto for the second – if you were not yet teaching. However, this is changing as more people who are teaching already are joining our course to get registered and insured. If you are not teaching then you don’t need to be insured, and you will be registered when you graduate.

If you do start teaching whilst you are still working on the course, then you will need STUDENT REGISTRATION in order to get STUDENT INSURANCE. These are an extra cost and you should factor them in, as you must also factor in your videos which are also a yearly subscription. The first year is paid for in your fee, but from thereon it is up to you to renew. This is not an unusual ask. WE do not hide the fact, however, when I ask you to read the applications and other information SLOWLY, we anticipate that you have done that, and won’t be surprised. Keep in mind that we are providing the skills for a career for around $3,000. That is extraordinary. A charge for Registration and Insurance and $275 for a yearly video subscription is nothing in the light of that.

Why Register with THE AUSTRALASIAN YOGA INSTITUTE? Thank you all the students who have responded to this call. Registration says you are a member of our school (and proud to be so), and at the very least the income received from the cost of registration allows us to give out scholarships, and help others in their desire to teach. It is not mandatory, but it is recommended, and we encourage you to do it. How do you  support and encourage your lineage? – or do you perhaps dream up a more glamorous version, something featuring India perhaps? We have a wonderful lineage that goes back through the Gita School to India and Tibet. My Heart Guru, Margrit Segesman the founder of the Gita school (a very important part of our lineage) was sent to Australia from India and Tibet to teach yoga by her Heart Guru, but she never disclosed who that was – seeking to break the “guru tradition”… When you register you are not just supporting our endeavours, you are acknowledging the wonderful teacher that Margrit Segesman was…and yoga is. A living tradition. Support us by being a fabulous teacher, and in time Affiliating with us, and taking our traditions into a complete Teacher Training School of your own.

Right now – TODAY, mark in your diary when your registration and insurance are due – Registration and insurance should be applied for YEARLY on the same day (it is easier this way).   – at this time contact us if WE (this office) have not contacted you. THE AYI COURSE VIDEOs.  A necessity.  Please make notes, notice how long you spend…. Write it down. As it says in your initial emailed information pack, from the very first one with how to set yourself up clearly noted, please make a journal note of all the yoga you do in a day, and that includes the videos. A computer is just a computer, and whilst we make every effort to get them to comply with our will, they sometimes don’t. If you have a daily journal and mark down in it all the yoga you do and watch, and then on a monthly basis transfer the totals to your passport, you will have a hard copy record, and a computer record.

      OUR YOGA CLASSES: You will note there are less – I need to write, and there are not enough hours in the day, so what is less popular GOES… and that is yoga classes.  Hardly anyone is committed.  Students come once month and call it”regular”. They don’t understand that I prepare for a class, then do the class.  It takes time and energy. Worthwhile if students in numbers come to class.  I have been doing this for most of my life.  50 years in fact. These are not the usual “teeny-boppy” sort of class, they are about CHANGE. Change the mind, change the body. If you are NOT wanting to change, to grow, to get better and better… (every day in every way), then these are probably not the classes for you. And, you don’t need to wear lycra. Every class is more difficult for me the teacher because I know more, want to help you more, and can see more. So if the classes are not what you anticipate, relax, go with the flow, and grow.

THE TIMES IN RED. From 2017 those classes in red above are at my home studio. So if you want to come to the home studio for your class please book. I need to know your name, the classes/s you want to attend and your email so I can confirm, as the classes will be limited and SMALL. Please email your booking and your details to yogafirst@netcon.net.au

The times in BLACK are at The Bentinck…

PRICES: The class prices at either place, Bentinck or Studio are be $15 per class, $135 for a 10 class pass or $100 unlimited for one 4 week month (no extensions  – once the month is up the pass is done). Your present passes will be valid until they run out.  Massage $85 per session with Jahne.

PARKING: 
At the studio: Could you please park on the white gravel I had made especially for you. If there is no room on the white gravel or the naturestrip, then opposite us is a space we have been given permission to use. Just drive in. Please, don’t park on the road, or in other peoples driveways or naturestrips unless there is absolutely no parking available at the studio and opposite. 

At the Bentinck: There is work going on to build our new medical centre. We dealt with the driveway, and in a few days cement is going to be laid for the ambulance parking.

NEXT TEACHER TRAINING CLASS AT MY HOME STUDIO

The next will be on Sunday 6th August,  2pm to 4pm  at my home studio (37 Morris Road in Woodend). Please join us – there is no need to book. Bring writing materials, and be early. Follow the Japanese Path at the side of the house. There is a notice on the door if you have trouble with direction. If you are a distance ed. student then the cost of the afternoon is $15. If you are a visitor you are most welcome – and if you are not formally a student teacher with us then the cost is $20. We have had the most wonderful trainings, there is nothing like them. Please do come. Park on the white gravel around the house, and in the open yard opposite. 
 
TEACHERS: THE SHAMAN WARRIORS DEATH MEDITATION training was amazingly good. This is a consultation that can be done with me one-on-one. If you have issues that need resolving. If you are stuck, and can’t move forward, then, this is the consult for you. In the training the girls were sobbing. At the end they said they felt powerful, in control – looking forward to moving forward. If you think this might be for you, then please, let me know, make a booking (one and a half hours minimum)  – come see me.

TEACHER TRAINING in the CBD: I am considering doing the Restorative Yoga Therapy workshop in Melbourne CBD. If you would be interested in doing this workshop (which is an important part of the course) if this was an option for you, please let me know. yogafirst@netcon.net.au.

I will be doing lectures at The Theosophical Society Theatrette in Russell Street (Subject – “Hypermobility JHBS/ED-T and how it changes your yoga and yoga teaching” theory and practice.).…  September 23rd, 1.30 to 2.30 then 2pm to 4 with afternoon tea in the break.  Please write in your diary.

TEACHER TRAINING IN EUROA: Now trainees in Euroa, Shepparton, Albury and surrounds will be able to do their teacher training with Heidi. We will keep you in the loop as this progresses. Please contact Heidi (Director – Heidi Van Maanenberg – ask@byoga.com.au).

TEACHER TRAINING IN BENDIGO: Bendigo Teacher Training classes – every fortnight from 3.30 to 5pm at Crusoeden Body. I will be teaching there on Tuesday 4th July. Turn at the Metricon building on the highway in Kangaroo Flat, Big METRICON sign on the building you turn at – also its a traffic light intersection, just up from Bunnings. Crusoeden is the building behind Metricon building, and faces Church Street. Its easy to find. Cost: $15 per class for everyone who attends – thank you. (Directors – Jayne Boyle  – crusoedenbody@bigpond.com).  Regular classes held – please email for timetable.

TEACHER TRAINING SOON IN TARADALE. These are still in the planning stages, but TARADALE Yoga School is not far away.  But if you are in the surrounding areas, please let me know and I will pass your interest along – in the beginning I will be sharing the TARADALE TT classes until we get them up and running… yogafirst@netcon.net.au DO YOU WANT TO AFFILIATE WITH US and Teach Yoga teachers?  If you are a graduate with us, have a studio already, and are at the point of considering teaching others to be yoga teachers, then please contact me and we can introduce you to our procedure for this. It is not like Macdonalds, it is not a franchise, you are always in charge, you make what you make, and I teach the modules just like you have done. It works – when you win, I win. Let me know if you would like a chat with me. Email me and let us set up a scheduled phone call – give me a few options for when you are available. Email: yogafirst@netcon.net.au

MASSAGE:  What I do is Restorative Yoga therapy/ massage.  More complex than just rubbing the body with oil (or as someone said to me “fish-slapping”).  It is more a combination of relaxation and cranio-sacral therapy.  We are having wonderful results, reaching new milestones for students.  If you want a booking please email me, and give me a couple of options.  There are not many times available.   I feel like Dolores Cannon – she had bookings twelve years out when she died.  I haven’t got there yet, but it is squeezed up right at this moment….  Book early.

ALL OUR IN-HOUSE DVD’S AND CD’S ARE AVAILABLE AT THIS SITE.

IF YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT YAMAS AND CHAKRAS – my own little books are on etsy. Why spend hours looking for the information when you can pay from under $10 for these books and have a very valuable easy-to-read reference and resource www.myyogabooks.etsy.com. If you get them and read them they will help you with many of the concepts that you are having trouble with especially in your modules. Go to “CHOOSE LIFE”, a home based on-line restore and recover program. YOGA NIDRA USB on ETSY. For those of you who want to do yoga nidra like we do (like I do). Now you can. I have done a USB stick so you can plug it in and have a wonderful, long meditation whenever you can. Please go to my growing shop on www.myyogabooks.etsy.com. YIN YOGA/ANATOMY/MEDITATION DVD’s –Please indulge in ALL three
They are the best, and will form the backbone of your yoga references. As I have told you before when I bought mine they cost $100 or so each. I thought that this was a good investment, and I still do. We have had to increase the price TWICE – everything everywhere is going up, and we have held this price for a number of years. Now $57.50. At this price we are accounting for currency increases and decreases, and they are still cheaper than I paid for mine initially. Look at Ebay – everyone is about the same. At twice the price they are still worth having. With Christmas coming, please order yours today. I don’t have many left and I am waiting for more stocks to arrive in the mail – at this time of the year they sometimes get caught up in customs. www.myyogabooks.etsy.com

I am at present writing a booklet on HYPERMOBILITY.  It will be available on ETSY before the seminar in September.

THE GARDEN: I picked Strawberry Guavas this morning, in the frost. (they take like an exotic fiejoa) and the lemon tree is totally laden and lying down almost with lemons… herbs doing well, bees quiet.
 
THE KITCHEN: I have been asked for the biscuit recipe again: This makes about 20 biscuits. It is an instinctive bake – play with the recipe, because I certainly do.

1 cup peanut butter, 1 cup sugar, 1 egg (these are the basic ingredients), I add some gluten free flour to make it a bit stiffer if required, (and also may add peels, chilli, or chopped fruit or chocolate). Roll into rounds and press onto your baking tray (covered with baking paper), press with a wet fork to make ridges and sprinkle with salt. Bake at 180Fan for about 12 minutes. Wait until they get a golden colour. Lift carefully onto a wire rack, and don’t eat until they are cold. They start quite soft and end up crispy, crunchy, sweet, salty. Enjoy.  

ATTENTION: EMAIL ADDRESS. There was a problem with the server, but this has been fixed until the next time – For anything, anything at all please email me at yogafirst@netcon.net.au. If you do not your emails may get lost, as I am gradually going to get rid of the other email addresses… Do not ring unless you have not got email, or you have an urgent question. Email, leave your number and I will get back to you. Phones? We are being re-organised, even here…. So at the moment my number is 0402 088 170  – preferably leave a text or email. I will return your calls when I can – I am not a slave to either the computer or the phone, so you may find that emails or text (which I always recommend) work out best. 
 
I am always as close as the post or the email, always working to make things better, dig deeper. Why? So you can be the best you can be. Email me, talk to me, send me photographs (send me questions). I look forward to hearing from you.  For more wonderful, delicious thoughts log on to our Web site www.yogabeautiful.com.au and tune in to our videos daily.

ENJOY – Love and Blessings,  Namaste Jahne
