This is a wonderful, wonderful GREAT BELL CHANT, by Thitch Nat Hahn. Pay particular attention to his walking meditation.  That is how I would like you all to practice.  Looks easy – but notice he is doing it on a busy sidewalk.



I have been doing Reiki for about 30 or more years and I didn’t know it – healing is healing.  No-one owns it.  However, after having not really concentrated in the reiki training classes years and years ago, I recently did the REIKI MASTER CERTIFICATION (which takes you beyond symbols), and it all fell into place.  What an eye-opener that was.

If you want to come for a Reiki Healing with me, just remember to book either side of yoga class, and set aside an hour.  Same price as any one-on-one $85 (except for the first session which will be $125 and longer).   If you have experienced a healing with me you know that (as well as energy)  I use Tibetan bells, and tuning forks.  Sound is important – it is an energy as everything else is.  My inspiration (apart from The Bible and The Gita, is Edgar Cayce – The Sleeping Prophet).

 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 www.tinytigers.moonfruit.comCost:  DIPLOMA Level $475, Certificate level $265. Payment plan available.



 DATE of the next Teacher Training:   Sunday 2ndJune 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.

NEW SHEPPARTON MASTERCLASS.  The class at Heidi’s studio in Kialla was amazing – she was right, I couldn’t miss it.  We are moving forward with a regular teacher training class, which will 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    It is always wonderful to get together with my students, and I think we all get something from sharing more than just how to do downdog.  The philosophy is at the basis of everything.  You can copy my classes, you can copy everything – but I am hoping that by about halfway through the course that you start to do things for yourself, your way. Not by finding alternatives to the foundations but by building on them.


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 has been loaded and is available for you.  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.



The “strawberries and cream” of yoga.

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


MEDITATION:  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.



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 have moved 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 – 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.

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.


RYTA500.  If you believe you have done the necessary courses, and hours to qualify for a RYTA500 certification level, please apply to me and we will see what can be done.  It could be easier than you think!

TO APPLY FOR RYTA500 REGISTRATION: If you have completed our RYTA350 courses, and then completed 200 extra hours of training, please supply the appropriate accreditation certificates to be considered for an upgrade to RYTA500 hour. If you want a further designation as SENIOR TEACHER, then 2,000 hours or 4 years of teaching need to be documented as being done AFTER your final qualification was achieved.

Any unplanned changes are always on the web, so please check.




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.



I have had an amazing response. If you have not tried it – please do, it is so simple and uses up scraps.  GINGERBREAD 13THCENTURY STYLE.  Gingerbread as we know it was introduced by Queen Elizabeth1.  Sugar was becoming less expensive, and spices (especially pepper which the Germans used in this recipe), were freely available.  She wanted the gingerbread treat to be given as a gift to courtiers, and so had the recipe tinkered with and put in person-shaped moulds.  The result is the gingerbread we know today.  But try this recipe, you will never go back.  With a bit of adjusting you will be able to put it in moulds.  No flour needed..

INGREDIENTS.  Half a cup of golden syrup to 1 cup breadcrumbs, *1 dessertspoon of cream and *1 dessertspoon of coconut oil and two heaped teaspoons of powdered ginger (try pepper or chilli if you want extra heat).  Warm and melt the wet ingredients so they mix together and add the dry.  Mix until blended then put in the microwave for 2 minutes stir, and repeat until it gets sponge like bubbles on the top.  I only did it twice.  Press into a small tin and leave in the fridge for about 2 or 3 days until it sets.  Then you can roll into balls, or cut into squares and eat like a lolly.  Totally different to the modern gingerbread but gorgeous.  You bite into it, and it tastes “good”, but then the heat builds and you get a lovely gingery, warm aftertaste.

You could put it in moulds but because it doesn’t have flour, it is not as “durable”.

*my additions, you can add your own – or leave them out.  You could even make it gluten free by using gluten free breadcrumbs.  What about dipping balls of the gingerbread in chocolate – now there’s an idea!


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.


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 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.  We have updated our Registration to meet more clearly the International rather than Australian standards.  It is how we started, and how we will continue.


Love and Blessings
