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

THOUGHTS FOR TODAY

My thought for the day is this “If you don’t get right, you get left”. My question to you is this. Ask yourself “Why did God bring me into contact with this yoga school, The Australasian Yoga Institute. Why? I believe it is because we don’t just teach yoga. We teach you about you, and bring you closer to the YAMAS which are the cornerstone to our school, our ethos, our lives.

LENT – our challenge…

What a remarkable week I have had! A lot of great classes, lots of fabulous feedback…. Just when you begin to think “who is out there????” comes a flood of affirmations, so thank you all. 

Most every year especially at this time (LENT) I ask you to think of others, to be of service. Step one is to put ourselves in someone else’s shoes. In light of this, think on the fact that almost 60% of the population of the world (could be more) LIVE ON LESS THAN $2 per day. Here is my challenge. FOR A WEEK IN LENT (IN MARCH) I ASK YOU TO SPEND LESS THAN $2 PER DAY ON FOOD. I have done this nearly every year and it is a hard challenge. You have to plan for it sure – keep in mind that people in poverty don’t get to plan – but we can. Try it, take the $2 per day CHALLENGE and let me know how you go. Last year in the middle of this challenge I got asked out to dinner at a restaurant. I explained to the host and the chef that I could only spend $1.50 max on my meal. Everyone got quite enthusiastic at playing with this requirement, and I was given a baked potato, and a glass of water with a slice of lemon. It was wonderful (for everyone). 

Let me know how you go.

GOD BLESS CUBA
  To the left is a photograph taken at the Bentinck, of our “Yoga Dog” – the Late Cuba. Julie found the photo and it was a lovely reminder. For more than 12 years Cuba came to every yoga class, didn’t miss one. She didn’t complain as she got older, or wasn’t well. If I was going anywhere, she was there. She was a pound dog, found on the Calder Freeway with her mum and dad. They were claimed but she was left behind. When I went to get her, I told her it would not be an easy life, she would be a “Yoga Dog”. There would be no time on couches or lying in the sun. She said yes please, and we travelled together for 12 years. Now Cuba has gone ahead, I somehow have a cat… not a replacement, a new companion. It has taken a long time to come to an arrangement (or as they say in the Mafia – “an accomodation”).

INTRODUCING……. (a repeat – please read)
THE NEW “Q” (QUANTUM) YOGA at The Australasian Yoga Institute. 

Hope-Williams sees the work at QYOGA as a departure. “In The Ranges we have gray weather, more prejudices, more self-restraint,” she says. “We’re more austere, and our sense of belonging to this environment is very much present”. And maybe these give rise to two historical yoga characteristics: (1) simplicity and (2) the acceptance of the unforeseeable or unexpected.

Her possession of this dogged, sort of messianic faith stands opposite to the way she presents herself, disappearing constantly into the yoga, the philosophy she articulates. She has a way of revealing her truths through illustrations, anecdotes, and koans, often boiled down to single lines. “When your back gets straight, your mind will get quiet”. “Life without meditation is like winding a clock without setting it. It runs perfectly well but it doesn’t tell the time.” “Things go the way the mind goes. If you think you are a yogi, you’re a yogi. If you don’t think you are a yogi, then you are not a yogi.” 

In fact, at the new Q-YOGA, it’s our obligation to transform ourselves, too, to leave our comfort zones, because that’s what we’re asking of you—and someone needs to walk you there. In the garden out the window is the real “QYoga”. The trees spring from the ground, delineating the garden and the boundaries. Green, lush, fully flowering, fruiting in the summer – then stark, skeletal when autumn comes. Be inspired.

Apply to join us. Be part of the first “CLASS OF FOUR”. Interested? Contact Jahne:yogafirst@netcon.net.au.

NORTHCOTE TEACHER TRAINING CLASSES.

Every Monday, we (I) will be leading a yoga class at 11.30 Where? 9 Langwells Parade, Northcote, just off the High street. Park in the Aldi carpark 2 hours parking spot, and walk through, it is a very, very short walk.

THE FAST TRACK AGAIN

This is not for students who have been putting their modules in, and are just impatient to finish. It is for those who clearly are lagging way behind. It is for those who clearly are lagging way behind. I am not forcing you to do this. If you can’t do the fast track, do the fast track  here you are but doing the modules you haven’t finished FASTER. I want you to finish. It is for those students who have got well into the course and have been teaching consistently, but have taken a very long time, and are looking at a long time to finish, then this is the answer. THE FAST-TRAK. This means that you will do modules 19,20,21,22 and the exam. When these are received (and you have FOUR MONTHS to complete – not forever and NO EXTENSIONS) you will get your RYTA200 Certification. The cost by distance is $650, or if you come here and do it in a day, then $950. If you are interested, then please contact me via email: yogafirst@netcon.net.au. These are the four most complex units in the course, and the exam is not small either. You will have really discipline yourself.

HYPERMOBILITY If you want to see our yoga books, our tarot, whatever we do in a new way, check out this new web site. It is lovely. I may get an easy domain. Let me know what you think of it.   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.

PLEASE COLLECT YOUR MAIL PROMPTLY….

Please make sure you visit you local Post Office with your COLLECTION SLIP in hand if you are waiting for items from us. Items waiting for collection are sent back to us. This incurs double postage when we resend it – nothing you/we will want to do with today’s postal charges. The fact that you have not picked it up does not mean that it has not been delivered. If your mailing address is in NSW, and you move to SA, don’t expect your mail to be sent to SA. You have to organize it. INSURANCE
  INSURANCE ALTERNATIVES. We are no longer closely involved with our teachers with regards to insurance…. AJGallagher seems to be the only one who will insure students who have not graduated but are teaching – although I must say they are increasingly difficult to deal with. However, we have made an alliance with Dancesurance which appear to insure students (trainees not yet graduated) cheaply, and, if you have a studio, they are really the only ones who insure this with understanding. If you are a student MAKE YOUR STATUS CLEAR, if you don’t, and need to make a claim, you may discover (too late) that you are not covered.

I have found a fabulous on-line insurer. INSURANCE HOUSE. They are amazing. Google them to discover everything they do. The list of modalities you can add to your policy at no charge is AMAZING. Please, try. I am still exploring Studio policies and will let you know when I have some answers. In the meantime – try them. They have been prompt, fantastic, and easy. What more can you ask?

RESTORATIVE YOGA THERAPY INSURANCE: Dancesurance and AJGallaghers have both come through with a specialist insurance for our Restorative Yoga Therapy graduates. They can add this special insurance on to their ordinary insurance AT NO EXTRA COST. They have examined the course, they have looked at the caliber of the students going through, and made their decision. All you need to do is to supply a copy of your registration when you apply. Dancesurance – www.DanceSurance.com
Arthur J Gallagher – www.ajg.com.au

Why Register with THE AUSTRALASIAN YOGA INSTITUTE?

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

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. I have been shocked by what teachers THINK they know, and teach. 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.

LATE PAYMENTS

We make every effort to accommodate you, keep our tuition down, are frugal so you can be trained economically. So please, try to be on time and have your funds in order. Otherwise, we will have to up our fees to cover these time wasting problems, and I am resisting that. So, to encourage you we are taking the lead from other organisations, and we are going to charge $15 every time we are met with problems with funds. Motto? Please be on time. We don’t want to be going back, and back – pleading for you to keep your agreements.

Yoga Beautiful eNewsletter – 5 April 2018

YOGA NEWSLETTER 5th APRIL 2018

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

THOUGHTS FOR TODAY.

I came upon this little page in the box where I keep all your beautiful cards. It seems like it was sent to me by Karen Stone who had a crystal shop in town, years ago. She says in her note to me that she cut it out of a magazine years before she sent it to me. So, blessings to the author wherever they are. 

“EVERY DAY,
Someone, somewhere lights a candle to PEACE.
It is a Universal gesture immune to politics.

It pays tribute to no philosophy, materialistic or Messianic.
The candle when lit by people of goodwill serves the good that is in us all.
It cauterizes all that is in us that is evil.
To every force arrayed in anger against an opposing force in the world, the candle’s message is simple…

“The sum of the good you share in your hearts is far greater than those evils that seek to divide you”.

The candle ignited does not detonate, it ILLUMINATES.
It doesn’t challenge the heavens in a thundering roar, it makes its plea in a steady flame, reflected in the eye of a wandering child, or in the squint of an elder who has seen it all.

The candle graces the Menorah as it fits the tree.
It is at home in all the windows of the world.
Its reassurance cannot be measured.

For the good news is that peace is not to be found in the frantic mathematics of war.
It reposes calmly in the magic of the candle.
LIGHT A CANDLE TO PEACE.

THE NEW “Qi” (QUANTUM) YOGA at The Australasian Yoga Institute. I am working on the new DVD’s. One on hypermobility and one on a yoga routine that I have devised and fallen in love with. I am doing about 2 hours of my own yoga every day, and feel FANTASTIC. I have send around personal invitations to a new and personal course, very close to my heart, and personally taught by me. I have only sent out to those people I think may be interested. Email me if I have neglected to contact you.

THE BHAGAVADGITA

SLOKA 66.
“Sarvadharman parityajya maam ekam saranam vraja,
Aham tva sarvapapebhyo mokshayisyami ma sucha”

Forsaking all other *dharmas (duties),
Remember Me alone.
For I will free you from all sins
(accruing from non-performance of those lesser duties).
Do not grieve!

TODAY – chant this verse and read the translation out loud (cry unto the Lord). Then hand everything over to the Lord. If you have faith, He will take your burdens from you.
The message – DO NOT WORRY, it leads no-where.

*From the Sanskrit word dhri “to hold anything”

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. INSURANCE
Your Registration is tied to your insurance. If you are not registered, then you can’t insure legitimately, and the responsibility is YOURS AND YOURS ALONE. A few students who have recently insured have done so without supplying a registration stating the level they are at in their studies (a student of yoga, a trainee teacher not yet graduated, a graduate) – were they to make a claim it could be disputed. We have stated this over and over again.

When we negotiated with the insurer on your behalf, then we could see how you were applying and make sure everything was OK. We cannot do that now. It is up to you. The easy way is to get registration through us and then send a copy of that with your CE requirement to the insurance company of your choice. You have choice, but no real policing to make sure that your policy is secure. It’s similar in nature to the difference in CAR insurance between the “Supermarket” insurance and CGU for instance. Yes you are insured with and it’s easy to insure, but is it as easy as they say it is when you claim??? As I said. The choice is yours.

RESTORATIVE YOGA THERAPY INSURANCE: Dancesurance and AJGallaghers have both come through with a specialist insurance for our Restorative Yoga Therapy graduates. They can add this special insurance on to their ordinary insurance AT NO EXTRA COST. They have examined the course, they have looked at the caliber of the students going through, and made their decision. All you need to do is to supply a copy of your registration when you apply. Here are some options…   Dancesurance – www.DanceSurance.com ……an insurer who also insures Studios/Students
Arthur J Gallagher – www.ajg.com.au ……our Long time insurer but changed
Insurance House www.insurancehouse.com …..insure on-line

Why Register with THE AUSTRALASIAN YOGA INSTITUTE?

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.

SCHOLARSHIPS.

To those who have applied. There will be no scholarships for the forseeable future – well, no advertised scholarships. I have found over the last couple of years, that those people to whom I have given scholarships, have turned out to be the LEAST CONNECTED TO THE SCHOOL, the Sangha. In spite of glowing applications and resumes, they don’t come to classes, they pick and choose teacher training, they don’t volunteer, they don’t get their modules in on time, and generally have a very relaxed response to the $3,500+ of teaching we have invested in them. Daily they live against the yamas in regard to their course. They are killing the opportunity for others, they are not telling the truth (not doing the things they said they would do), they are stealing from the Sangha, they don’t have respect, and they are taking more than they need. I think that says it all. Take note, I am prepared to withdraw scholarships to those who are not performing. Am I jaded? Am I discouraged? Of course. Yes! I will give scholarships, but only to those people who are already demonstrating a strong affiliation with the school, and are living and working in ways that are in line with our ideals. They will not be advertised. Don’t apply.

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.

YOGA WITH JAHNE…..
CLASS TIMES 
(no Northcote on public holidays.. but Jahne’s local classes unchanged)

MASSAGE:
A Healing Massage with Jahne can be had between Yoga Classes (at The Bentinck)by appointment only – even on weekends.

COST: 
Yoga/Meditation/Philosophy $20 per class

HELP NEEDED: If you have a DVD of GHANDI, KUNDUN or DEAD MAN (with Johnny Depp), or a copy of the book THE DIAMOND CUTTER, and no longer need it, could you donate it to us? I would like to allow my Bentinck students to have a copy from us – Gifted by you. Send a message with such a gift if you would like to wish a rehab student well. THANK YOU TO THOSE WHO HAVE RESPONDED TO THIS – PLEASE SEND MORE – WE CAN ALWAYS USE THEM. SPECIAL THANKS TO THOSE WHO HAVE PURCHASED COPIES ESPECIALLY FOR US TO DONATE. 

The best help you can give is to come to class – the cost of the class makes possible the pro-bono work I do every day, every week.

THE BENTINCK – on the corner of High Street and Romsey Road, Woodend.
Enter ONLY through the Romsey Road gate where you see the yoga sign. Do not park in the front of the Bentinck. The main two story building is NOT The Yoga Centre.

double grey garage rolladoors. Not in front of neighbours driveways please.

NORTHCOTE – 9 Langwells Pde. (near Aldi).
Plenty of parking at Aldi. FREE 2 Hour park, or All Day nearer the Police Station at the back.

ATTENTION ALL YOGIS:
I am holding a SILENT RETREAT at The Bentinck on Sunday the 22nd April from 10am to 4.30 (followed by optional yoga). The cost is $50 (plus an extra $20 if you want to stay for the 5pm yoga class). Please email me if you are interested: yogafirst@netcon.net.au and I will send you the details and form.

MONTHLY TEACHER TRAINING AT THE HOME STUDIO: 

April Fool’s Day. Thank you to the TWO PEOPLE (out of all those who usually come) who let me know they would not be there. Thank you, thank you to the usual yoga devotees who come hail. Rain, or shine. We studied the ‘Gita. It was excellent.

The next one will be on Sunday 6th May, 2pm to 4pm at my home studio (37 Morris Road in Woodend). Please join us for Teacher Training. 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) (which 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.

The response to my notice about a monastery retreat has been surprising. People wanted to know the dates I plan to be away so they could be absent when I was absent. It is interesting that no-one asked because they would like to assist in some way – to fill in my classes in my absence , or help Charlie whilst I am away. No-one even mentioned watering the garden or feeding the cat. Surprising!

Maybe I should go away often. I used to, and a little team always stepped in. In past years, no-one asked when I would be away so they could stay away! They asked because they wanted to support the Sangha. It makes me wonder why I am teaching yoga. People say that it is not just a physical exercise, but then they ACT like it is. No personal responsibility except to their own body. Empty vessels.

BENDIGO Teacher Training classes – The first Tuesday of the month. EXCEPT NO EASTER. Next class is Tuesday, 3rd May 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.

CLASSES AT OUR AFFILIATE STUDIOS IN EUROA, LYONSVILLE, APOLLO BAY – Pease email me for details.

SUNBURY: THE CRANIO SACRAL CONNECTION.  WE REPEATED THIS LECTURE ON SUNDAY 18TH MARCH between 2 and 4pm. It was splendid – very worthwhile. Cost $35. If you would like to join us for the NEXT WORKSHOP workshops in Sunbury at YOGA 101, please contact Michelle at Yoga 101. Email info@yoga101.com.au

I have been looking at the boxes of letters and cards people have sent to me. It has been interesting remembering past students, and the wonderful things we have achieved together.

THE SHOP AND ETSY. 

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.www.myyogabooks.patterbyetsy.com Or www.yogabeautiful.com.au. for the Paul Grilley DVD’s. 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..

WEB SITE NEWS. AS I NOTIFIED YOU IN THE LAST NEWSLETTER…In the next month or so we are totally changing our web site. This will mean a new look for the web site, the newsletter and the videos. Although everyone is working towards a smooth changeover, there could be problems (we are dealing with computers and humans), however, when we get to the other side, it will be easier, and better. It has been 10 years since we have made a change, and you know how technology has advanced in this time. I admit to trepidation – but, it had to be done.

The videos AND THE NEW BLOG are going to get a shake up. This is long overdue. In a perfect world there would be no interruption – but utopia has rarely been located, and I ask in advance for your patience. I will keep notifying you via the newsletter, I will let you know when the exact changeover occurs IF I CAN. But if you go to the videos, and they are either not there, or all over the place… be patient. We will get it all fixed up. EMAIL NUMBER. yogafirst@netcon.net.auAccounts: Wednesdays between 9 and 12pm yogafirst@optusnet.com.au TEXT 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. The mail address is PO Box 14, Mt.Macedon. Vic. 3441. I am always as close as your email, and there are those who ring and manage to find me near the phone … Don’t forget to Register, insure and re-subscribe to the videos. Don’t leave these to the last minute. Love and Blessings,  Jahne

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

THOUGHTS FOR TODAY. 

I was thinking about the “drought” that broke for us yesterday. It was a shortish drought (and a shortish downpour), but nevertheless, the trees were stressed and in spite of watering, everything in the garden had started to retire – probably wondering whether to move into winter a bit earlier than planned. After the rain the garden relaxed, dams and streams were refreshed, but, the aquifers I am sure have started to diminish and they take much longer to fill. It is very much like life. We can go through bad times, then the trouble clears, but deep down, the healing takes a whole lot longer, and it will only happen if we keep feeding good and positive thoughts into our personal aquifers. It can look good on the surface, but what is happening deep down.

THE NEW “Qi” (QUANTUM) YOGA at The Australasian Yoga Institute. I am working on the new DVD’s. One on hypermobility and one on a yoga routine that I have devised and fallen in love with. I am doing about 2 hours of my own yoga every day, and feel FANTASTIC. I have send around personal invitations to a new and personal course, very close to my heart, and personally taught by me. I have only sent out to those people I think may be interested. Email me if I have neglected to contact you.

THE BHAGAVADGITA

“Beware, beware (as Margaret says) She is studying again”… Yes, I am, and there is an aspect of the Gita I have been bringing to my students that EVERYONE seems to have overlooked. My students tell me of enlightening experiences in meditation (some have even told me that they are ‘enlightened”?) however, they seem unable to bring that consciousness off the cushion. They get drawn back into the everyday conflicts and challenges by samskaras or imprints. This is the state they are in as they prepare to enter the battlefield (metaphysical or no).

The discriminatory powers as portrayed by the five Divine sons of Pandu to be ignited within the student (the yogi) are what we have not paid attention to. These 5 Pandavas are the central heroic figures of the Gita analogy. What most students skip over is the connection between the Pandavas who control the armies of energy and consciousness and the chakras as follows..

SAHADEVA – Muladhara, NAKULA – Svadistthana, ARJUNA – Manipura, BIMA – Anahata, YUDHISTHIRA – Vishuddha.
The Pandavas support (and guiding Divine Intelligence) is Krishna, manifested as The Christ Consciousness – SAHASRARA

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. INSURANCE
Your Registration is tied to your insurance. If you are not registered, then you can’t insure legitimately, and the responsibility is YOURS AND YOURS ALONE. A few students who have recently insured have done so without supplying a registration stating the level they are at in their studies (a student of yoga, a trainee teacher not yet graduated, a graduate) – were they to make a claim it could be disputed. We have stated this over and over again. 

When we negotiated with the insurer on your behalf, then we could see how you were applying and make sure everything was OK. We cannot do that now. It is up to you. The easy way is to get registration through us and then send a copy of that with your CE requirement to the insurance company of your choice. You have choice, but no real policing to make sure that your policy is secure. It’s similar in nature to the difference in CAR insurance between the “Supermarket” insurance and CGU for instance. Yes you are insured with and it’s easy to insure, but is it as easy as they say it is when you claim??? CGU is a little more expensive, more hoops to jump through but gold standard when you make a claim. As I said. The choice is yours.

RESTORATIVE YOGA THERAPY INSURANCE: Dancesurance and AJGallaghers have both come through with a specialist insurance for our Restorative Yoga Therapy graduates. They can add this special insurance on to their ordinary insurance AT NO EXTRA COST.

They have examined the course, they have looked at the caliber of the students going through, and made their decision. All you need to do is to supply a copy of your registration when you apply. Here are some options…   Dancesurance – www.DanceSurance.com ……an insurer who also insures Studios/Students
Arthur J Gallagher – www.ajg.com.au ……our Long time insurer but changed
Insurance House www.insurancehouse.com …..insure on-line

Why Register with THE AUSTRALASIAN YOGA INSTITUTE?

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

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.

LATE PAYMENTS

We make every effort to accommodate you, keep our tuition down, are frugal so you can be trained economically. So please, try to be on time and have your funds in order. Otherwise, we will have to up our fees to cover these time wasting problems, and I am resisting that. So, to encourage you we are taking the lead from other organisations, and we are going to charge$15 every time we are met with problems with funds. Motto? Please be on time. We don’t want to be going back, and back – pleading for you to keep your agreements.

MONTHLY TEACHER TRAINING AT THE HOME STUDIO: 

The next will be on April Fool’s Day. Yes, Easter – but, as I have been emailing and notifying you all I am reluctant to call it off. I will be here for classes if you come. Sunday 1st April , 2pm to 4pm at my home studio (37 Morris Road in Woodend). Please join us for Teacher Training 2pm to 4pm. 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) (which 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.

I am considering a longish monastery retreat – to do this I will have to put all classes, all courses on hold for the time I am away. It has been a long time since I have done this (I used to disappear for 6 WEEKS at a time). A number of trainee teachers (and yogis) have a ‘take it or leave it” attitude to trainings and teachings, so this possible absence will give you all an idea what could happen if things changed. To visit my teacher takes a whole lot more planning, money, time and dedication to do, than the effort you require to visit me.

BENDIGO Teacher Training classes – The first Tuesday of the month. EXCEPT NO EASTER. Next class is Tuesday, 3rd May 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.

CLASSES AT OUR AFFILIATE STUDIOS IN EUROA, LYONSVILLE, APOLLO BAY – Pease email me for details.

SUNBURY: THE CRANIO SACRAL CONNECTION.  WE REPEATED THIS LECTURE ON SUNDAY 18TH MARCH between 2 and 4pm. It was splendid – very worthwhile. Cost $35. If you would like to join us for the NEXT WORKSHOP workshops in Sunbury at YOGA 101, please contact Michelle at Yoga 101. Email info@yoga101.com.au

THE SHOP AND ETSY. 

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.www.myyogabooks.patterbyetsy.com Or www.yogabeautiful.com.au. for the Paul Grilley DVD’s. 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..

WEB SITE NEWS. AS I NOTIFIED YOU IN THE LAST NEWSLETTER…In the next month or so we are totally changing our web site. This will mean a new look for the web site, the newsletter and the videos. Although everyone is working towards a smooth changeover, there could be problems (we are dealing with computers and humans), however, when we get to the other side, it will be easier, and better. It has been 10 years since we have made a change, and you know how technology has advanced in this time. I admit to trepidation – but, it had to be done. 

The videos especially are going to get a shake up. This is long overdue. In a perfect world there would be no interruption – but utopia has rarely been located, and I ask in advance for your patience. I will keep notifying you via the newsletter, I will let you know when the exact changeover occurs IF I CAN. But if you go to the videos, and they are either not there, or all over the place… be patient. We will get it all fixed up. EMAIL NUMBER. yogafirst@netcon.net.auAccounts: Wednesdays between 9 and 12pm yogafirst@optusnet.com.au TEXT 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. The mail address is PO Box 14, Mt.Macedon. Vic. 3441. I am always as close as your email, and there are those who ring and manage to find me near the phone … Don’t forget to Register, insure and re-subscribe to the videos. Don’t leave these to the last minute. Love and Blessings,  Jahne
