MODAYS AT THE CHURCH.

I am so happy with the number of people we are coming to the classes at The Uniting Church. They are people who in the main, have not done yoga before… and they love it. I would like more heating (we all would), but at the moment, we do what we can do. The yoga at my place is pretty cushy in comparison, but we have done yoga in almost every space available in The Macedon Ranges, and even on the streets in America, so, we are prepared to teach anywhere we are wanted. “Have yoga will travel”.

 

After class we have lunch, and then after lunch we do meditation (all by donation of course), and then after that I spend an hour or so helping the volunteers sort donated clothing. It is like weeding – it never seems to end, just when you think you are getting somewhere more is building up behind. But, that is what we are asking for – MORE. The clothes are sorted into three groups 1. To be sold, 2. To go to other charities, and 3 To be sorted off-site and sold as rags. Nothing is wasted. I joined in because I wanted to help and still do, but there is a great feeling of friendship and fun. I look forward to Mondays. If you are at a loose end on Mondays. Please join us. Come for lunch, and then the ladies start sorting – I join in after meditation.

Where: The Uniting Church, 37 Forest Rd. Woodend (next to the Police Station – turn off the high Street at Bourkies bakery).

 

AT THE STUDIO

YOGA, ART, CRAFT.

We are trying to make sense of our emails and phones with the shift from the Bentinck. Please transfer all your account queries to Jacky at yogafirst@optusnet.com.au If you want a direct answer from me, then as usual, yogafirst@netcon.net.au.

 

YOGA CLASSES at the studio: are filling up. Please, if you say you are coming, come. If you can’t, then please let me know. My home Studio is not huge, and I want to take as many as I can, but I can’t hold your place if you only come occasionally. If you have told me you are coming to a specific class then I hold the place for you – it could mean I turn someone away which is unfortunate if you don’t come. Of course, if you want a private class to suit your very own special timetable, I can do that, but the cost is $85 for a one-on-one.

 

PAINTING CLASSES:

Our Tuesday night MEDITATION MANDALA painting classes are progressing fabulously well, and we are booking for the next set of 5 classes for September. 4th September to 2nd October.

Go to www.jahnehopewilliams.com to see more, and email me to book your spot.

yogafirst@netcon.net.au.

 

TUESDAYS from7pm- 9pm

COST $250 for 5 classes – Two more classes for the first session to go, but we are taking September bookings.

 

All materials will be provided. Start Date for next classes: 4th September

By the end of the class you will have a unique image to take home, and frame to put in your own meditation room. Maybe good enough, stunning enough to be an heirloom. No painting experience needed. If you are nimble enough to sign your own name, you can do these classes.

 

SUMII (ZEN YOGA) BRUSHPAINTING – “ONE BREATH ONE LINE”

Fridays 12.30 and 6.30pm and Saturdays at 9am and 2.30.

Our first class on Saturday morning was fantastic, and the students even started painting bamboo. I tempted them with painting of goldfish, but bamboo is where we are at. It was interesting to see how much more focused the yoga class at 10 was after we had spent an hour painting.

 

This is the traditional painting on rice paper, but with a twist. On the longer Friday and Saturday afternoon classes, we will be doing it the “zen way” and painting things that can’t be painted. Love, joy, yoga, spirit, speed…etc etc.   No right, no wrong, just what you can do. Your expression. We will be using traditional materials, we will be doing yoga breathing, AND A PAINTING will be the result.. Grind the ink, use the brush, paint the painting….. Sounds easy, BUT as in yoga, the foundations are everything.

 

 

REDS RESTAURANT and THE FOUNDATION

The art show went well, and we even received have some donations towards the Foundation. If you were unable to come to the show, and would like to donate please direct debit any amount to The GitaJaia Yoga Foundation, Commonwealth Bank in Woodend. 063806 10200584. Any amount will help, no matter how small.

Please come to the show, please buy a painting. It all goes to The Foundation. The next showing will focus on THE TAROT.

 

 

MY PENDULUM

Please… if you want a session, WE CAN DO.   Even at a distance. We can identify additional minerals and supplements, balance your diet, test for food sensitivities…. Health, business whatever. $55 one question, $75 two questions $150 for a general life reading for people who are stuck. On the farm I never made a change without dowsing first. If you want to see if it makes a difference go see what the farm has become without the magic of dowsing – it is a dying jungle which could be brought back to life.

I have made some lovely pendulums. To see them go to www.myyogabooks.etsy.com
