THE AUSTRALASIAN YOGA INSTITUTE IS MISSION DRIVEN AND MEMBER SUPPORTED.

THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT NEWSLETTER – LOTS OF CHANGES…

HELLO..THIS IS THE FIRST and Short NEWSLETTER FROM THE NEW PROVIDER, and put to press BY ME. I think it will be OK because I have the guys from Greengraphics (our new providers) working alongside of me. NEXT WEEK, I will be on my own. In a perfect world, there would be no hiccups, but there probably will be something we have not foreseen. If there is, and if it affects you, please be patient, contact me, and we will get it resolved as soon as we can. Note: we’re still setting up the new registration systems and linking it with your current details, so stay tuned.

Please view our revamped new website here (same address, better look!): yogabeautiful.com.au

SILENT RETREAT

I am holding a silent retreat at the Bentinck on the 22nd April from 10.30 to 4.30pm. You are all invited. Cost $50.

FOUNDATION ART SHOW and the cat (Gracie)

Please put this in your diary. I have an exhibition on Sunday 27th May from 2pm to 4pm. At Reds Restaurant in Woodend. The title of the Exhibition is “THE ANGELS AMONG US”. Please come along, please consider a purchase, it will help us do what we do – what is this? My little team and I teach yoga to people recovering from Life Trauma and serious addictions. We do about $500 PER WEEK PRO-BONO (unpaid). Our needs are few, but it would be good to get something don’t you think… and this is where the Foundation can help. I will put the ANGEL images on my Facebook page as I complete.

At the moment, cat Gracie, who is recovering from a savaging by a feral cat has taken possession of the angel paintings as they progress. She will sleep no-where else, and no matter what I do, she sneaks back to them.

E M A I L / P O S T : 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.

AUDIOBOOKS NEEDED: It has come to my attention thanks to one of my friends who is losing her sight rather fast, that getting good audio books is hard if you can’t afford to go out and buy them. If you have a local OpShop that stocks them, or if you have an unused stash, could you donate to us please so we can give them out to people who would benefit from them PLEASE. They probably will not cost much at the op-shop, and the recipients will be so grateful.
