Welcome to Yoga beautiful!  Where we combine ancient philosophies with a twist of eastern-meets-western realism to guide you to igniting your inner radiance and health that will last you a lifetime.

Want to become the master of your own health? 
Let me show you how!

If there was another way I could help my students to eat, breathe, move and live more effectively, then I would do it. But there isn’t – at least in a lifetime of looking I haven’t found one. Yoga is the only way I have found. It works. You need to learn to relax, and have patience, and RESTORATIVE YOGA THERAPY is the most beautiful mindful exercise program.

We teach this a number of times a week to students of all ages and traumas…  there is no need to hold back because you feel you are not flexible.  One of my students called this “the strawberries and cream of yoga” – and it is. Without seemingly doing much at all, we are profoundly changing the body (and the mind). Try it.

If you are a teacher, then we can help you too with courses. Short courses which can be done as an elective in your Teacher Training to enable you to comply with continuing education requirements for  teacher training registration, or a long course to elevate you to the status of Therapist in this area of yoga expertise. There are a number of options…

For the short course go to, or to explore the longer course log on to


This is a POST GRADUATE course for those students interested in pursuing a life helping people in recovery from addictions –  Drugs, alcohol, prescription medications etc.

All recovery is a team effort and this is no different, except that YOGA has hardly ever been accepted as part of the team.  This is changing.  If you would like to be part of a healing team, offer a more long term and effective tool for recovery, then this is it.  I have trialled it over ten years, and I believe it to be very effective (I have boxes of testimonials that tell me it works).

Acceptance is by application to me in the first instance.  Jahne at
