No Yoga on the Holiday Monday.

It’s the “Little House on the Prairie” here.  This afternoon I have pickled green walnuts –  Bottled they are hugely expensive and a gourmet product.  Really.  Maybe not mine!  I have put down apple windfalls to make apple cider vinegar which is simple, and made stewed apple with the leftovers mixed with rhubarb, all from the garden.  Fantastic from my garden at this time of the year.


THE FIRES:  Thank you all for your kind thoughts and offers of “Code Red” accommodation on those days.  It makes me a whole lot less anxious.  I have had “internal” code red days and have lessened the tension by making dolls.  The Late Mirka Mora taught me how to do this, and it has been a great comfort.  I am documenting how I make them.  They can be made entirely by hand.  I am making the pattern and the process into a book and putting it on etsy.  You will be able to hold classes, get a group together and do ‘DOLL MAKING AT MIDNITE” to raise money for a favourite cause.  I have done sewing classes at mid nite – small patchwork, dolls, animals… and it is fabulous.  Start at about 9.30 finish at about 4 or 5 in the morning – whatever works for you!  Chanting?  meditation?  Lots of snacks, lots of chocolates, lots of champers…

The photos are pictures of the dolls in progress.  Unfinished.




CHAIR YOGA: Starts the week after next.  Please tell people you think would benefit,  that I will be holding these classes on Tuesdays and Fridays on 10.30 from the first week in February.  Everything provided.

TAROT READING CLASSES:    Saturday the 1st, 8th and 15th of February from 2pm to 4pm.  Go to  for details.  Those people taking part will receive a deck of my REVELATION TAROT cards as part of the course.  It is a certificate course, and you will be able to read easily for others,  and with confidence,  by the time you complete the three sessions.

MAGDALEN TAROT:  It’s coming along.  A lot of research to be done.  It is not just a matter of a few images…  they have to be backed up with a book.

REGISTRATIONS/MODULES ETC.    It is that time of the year and I always plan to email you all to remind you of registrations, but many of you have not updated emails so it usually is a lengthy but fruitless exercise…. Please review your progress, make a plan for the coming year (one that you can stick to) and go for it.  Please check that you are registered and insured, and if you want to keep going with the videos, make sure that you are subscribed.  There is an annual fee for videos, registrations and insurance – it would be handy if you arranged for them all to come due in the same month at least!

MASSAGE: Busy, busy but there is always room for you.  Please email me to book.

PAST LIFE CONSULTATIONS: Lets travel to the past or to the future.  Just let me know when you would like to do it.  Remember you will need 2 hours.

I have started painting the things that we see and speak of.  I think they will be an interesting series of artworks.



There have been changes, I have dropped a few studio classes to allow me to do more EVERYDAY CHAIR YOGA CLASSES.   All on the Web Site.  Go to  for classes.

Yoga $20 per Class Or  CLASS PASS – $135 per 10 CONSECUTIVE classes (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   Next door to the Police Station, Forest Road, Woodend.   Monday: 12noon FREE lunch. (The 1pm yoga is  held at the Studio in Woodend, not at the Church. It is not a free class).


MONTHLY TEACHER TRAINING AT THE HOME STUDIO:  DATE of the next Teacher Training:   Sunday 2nd February,  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 a Yoga Teacher Training student then the cost of the afternoon is $20.  This fee applies to everyone. (Visitors are welcome – even those not yet in teacher training – $30).

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

PARKING HOME STUDIO – 37 Morris Road, Woodend.  If you come to my home studio for yoga or massage or anything – 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. Not in front of neighbours driveways, on the road, or on nature strips please.



I write books to help you. What will you find on ETSY?  YAMAS, CHAKRAS, HYPERMOBILITY, THE FIVE TIBETANS AND TEMPLATES and more.  There are lots of books there to help you in your progress with yoga.


MY PAST LIVES – the book will be released over the next month or so – I will probably do the tidying up of the manuscript over the holidays..  This may help you to understand my journey, and anticipate one of your own.  It is interesting that more people are coming from the future in these sessions than from the past…they have come to heal and to teach.


Watch my FREE UTUBE CHANNEL.  It is amazing how Hypermobility and the endocannabinoid system fit together.  Please watch the youtube channel, or get the hew books on ETSY.


YOUR REGISTRATIONS: Thank you again to those students who have bounced back into action, who are getting their insurance and registrations up to date (I personally would not work without insurance – it is one of the first things I check).  Thank you to those students who have started up again after a long absence, BUT, if your absence has been 5 years or more, and you did little when you first enrolled, then you will have to start the modules at the beginning….   But it is good to start – it is even better to finish.  Another thing you can cross off the list.

 Why Register?

This is one thing I attempted to get to in the hols.  Emailing everyone and asking you to check that you are registered at the right level, and have your insurance.  It is a bit difficult if you haven’t updated your email address with me.  Don’t be PART SMART.    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.



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.


WHAT IS NEXT:  I am downsizing – well, clearing out my stock room, and getting rid of a number of my saved and cherished prints and paintings.  You will be surprised.  I will also be getting rid of surplus bits and pieces that I no longer use – even yoga gear.  I am not planning to die (right away), and not planning to move, although it could be forced on me by climate change.. so I thought I would get rid of things I don’t use, that you may be able to.  Date – Probably the end of February.


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.


Love and Blessings   Jahne…….
