Hi there.  I have a fire plan, which unfortunately has to be part of our new year plan.  I have checked the CFA warnings throughout Victoria, and they are all grim, even places that I previously thought were well out of the way of fires are called EXTREME dangers,  such as Bendigo, Clunes, Talbot and Maryborough which would seem well away from danger, but no.  Take Euroa and Shepparton, they came pretty close.  So we are have to be prepared.  You can only do so much, and I have settled down to think of it all as ‘extreme de-cluttering”.

On Monday our community got together and we made trauma teddies for the Red Cross.  It was a fabulous morning of healing.  The anxiety of the previous week was soothed by the conversation, contact and crafting.  If you want a day like this, The Red Cross co-ordinate these efforts, contact them and have a teddy morning in your studio.

Getting your neighbours together and sharing information, and planning how to help each other is a great thing too, and saved a few properties in the last Straws Lane emergency here in the Macedon Ranges..



Classes will be starting in Woodend on the 4th of February at 10.30 at the neighbourhood house.  If you want us to start classes with you, please let us know –



It is that time of the year.  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.  They are an annual fee

PAST LIFE CONSULTATIONS: During the holidays I will have more time to do more videos.  There are not enough hours in the day at the present.  I am finishing the book, doing more study into past life therapy, taking photos…. As well as looking after my students.   Prices:  Book a two hour session before the 17th of January and get TWO SESSIONS FOR THE PRICE OF ONE. Or book a one hour session for $150.


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

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 – Has been released on Etsy.  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 will be doing in the hols.  Emailing everyone and asking you to check that you are registered at the right level, and have your insurance.  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.

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…….
