COOKING NOW IS ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL.  I have only done a couple to date but I am working up to more.  OAT MILK, KOMBUCHA, a look at my SMALL kitchen, gluten free pancakes, and pizza bases.  It’s a bit of a hoot because as soon as I set up for a video people come to the door, the phone rings, and the cat wants to join in.  It is more like an episode of “I Love Lucy”.   Definitely not something even Mary Berry would admit to….



I am working on a new project, matching reworked fabric gloves to famous hands.  Buddha, Madonna, Ghandi, Mother Teresa and so on…. Could you help with any lovely old fabric gloves in any condition (don’t have to be perfect)? I am also looking for sewing stuff – lace, ribbons,  embellishments, a wooden darning mushroom and a wooden glove finger mushroom.  If you have anything I would appreciate it, and if they come with a short story I will print it in the catalogue with the gloves as a back story.  Once the gloves or bits come to me they will be used, and not returned.  I intend to donate the collection at the end intact – the individual pieces will not be sold.



DATE of the next Teacher Training:   Sunday 5thMay 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 teacher Training student then the cost of the afternoon is $20.  This fee applies to everyone. (Visitors – and/or not yet training – $30).

HYPERMOBILITY (the course)

The new course is on the ETSY site.

Watch my FREE UTUBE CHANNEL.  Hypermobility, Purushatras, and so on.  There is lots there – do one video per day..  Google “Jahne Hope-Williams You Tube”.



Also on the videos.  I am walking the viewers through the cards in my Revelation Tarot Deck. The new book will be loaded by the end of March.  I am starting to introduce my next 13 cards.  As soon as they are printed they will be on ETSY.   Google “Jahne Hope-Williams You Tube” to get there.  I need 100 subscribers before we are granted an easy link.



More Restorative (Remedial) classes.  Look at the web site for dates and times.



You will notice from the CLASSES on the Web Site that we now have meditation by donation on Tuesdays at 11am and Sundays at 9.15.  Please come.  I will be doing yoga nidra plus healing singing bowls.  In Term 2,  I will be adding a salt diffuser to the room where we do meditation so that whilst students are concentrating on their breath, the added salt in the air will be helping their respiratory systems.



We are your lineage.  You can pretend, you can take cheaper options, you can use all kinds of rationalization BUT WE ARE YOUR LINEAGE, your yoga family.  No-one else can be.   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. We are moving to AON insurance.  You will be able to insure on-line BUT you will need a current registration to prove you are a member with us to get the advantages that a big firm like AON can offer.  AJG quoted $3,600 to insure our studioAON did exactly the same insurance for $376 with no fuss, no in depth passport type questions…..  When you open your own studio, you will be interested in this.




You will find them on our yogabeautiful web site.     Click on “classes”.

The Yoga Studio will be closed from the 8thApril to 22nd April, although meditation classes on Tuesday at 11 and Sunday at 9.15am will be as usual. Any unplanned changes will be on the web, so please check if you plan to come during the School holidays.




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.

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.


AM I OLD AND CONFUSED?  POSTAL VOTING:  I don’t know whether you have noticed, but that red and white postal voting application appears to have been sent by none other than THE LABOUR PARTY and not the Electoral Office.    The return address on the envelope is the labour party.  Do you want the labour party to have all your information?  When you go to the polling both they only need to confirm you are a voter on the rolls, on the postal vote application the labour party has masses of information about you at their finger tips.  Voters beware!  At the very least BE AWARE.


Love and Blessings
