I keep on bringing this to your attention…The GREAT BELL CHANT, by Thitch Nat Hahn.




“When the world says to give up, some people make their own miracles”.

Once again, a terrific information session in Bendigo on Sunday.  Thank you so much for the students who came.  I love seeing students I haven’t seen in my sessions for YEARS, and I did this time.  Lots of interest of course generated around hemp which is second only to celery in the mind of the public, HEMP is fantastic.

The more I read, the more I experience, the more I study, the more I am convinced that the endocannabinoid system is the key to good health – it is part of a team – yoga is a part, but diet, supplementation are important too.  Don’t be PART SMART.  I am sure when you really get into it you will also start to join the dots. I can’t help being evangelistic – when you have a product that really works, then you have to run with it.  Adding hemp to your diet is adding taste, not taking it away.  Read my books.  Go to

We will shortly be adding the hemp food supplements to our yoga web site shop.  The Hemp Seed Oil, the Hemp seeds, and the Protein powder (not flavoured at this stage – although let me know if you are interested in chocolate, or coconut or even banana flavours!! I can get them)

NEXT HEMP INFORMATION SESSION:  I have opened the Woodend Studio up between 2.30 and 4 EVERY Saturday.  I hope you will take this opportunity to come see me, and talk about HEMP, and CBD oil and the NEW ESSENCE.  I will have stock on hand if you would like to try and buy.  CBD Oil $75 per 50ml, TYOH healing oil $35, and the new SATIVA Essence $25.

HEMP COOKERY:  Classes by request coming up in August.  A recipe book ‘JAHNE’S KANNABIS KITCHEN (now available on the etsy site),  will accompany the class.  Limited places available.  Please indicate your interest.

“CBD (Sativa) ENERGY ESSENCE”:  I am trialling a new edition to my CBD and herb essence family, inspired by Dr.Edward Bach.  I will let you know the results.   I truly believe in the memory of water, and look forward to what this essence can offer.  I imagine at this point it will be directed towards people who are suffering anxiety, depression and addictive behaviours due to pain on any level.

PHONE CONSULTATIONS:  If you would like to book a phone call with me.  We can explore your yoga business, expanding your studio, expanding your practice or asana /philosophy concerns – I am looking forward to hearing from you. There is a cost, it is a consultation the same as any other – an hour is an hour: $85 for an hour.



All on the Web Site.  Go to  for classes.

COST:    Yoga $20 per Class Or  CLASS PASS – $135 per 10 CONSECUTIVEclasses (students of the studio for 3 years or more).   New students: $165 per 10 class pass (normally $200)  After 3 years as a student, the cheaper rate will apply.


UNITING CHURCH CLASSES (FREE or by donation)  Next door to the Police Station, Forest Road, Woodend.

Monday:12noon FREE lunch.  The 1pm yoga will be held at the Studio in Woodend, not at the Church.  The electrical system at the church ceased to function a few weeks back, and although it was repaired, still doesn’t work.  I don’t like doing yoga in -5 degrees, and I think my students are more discerning (sensible) too.



DATE of the next Teacher Training:   Sunday 4thAugust 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 are welcome – even those not yet in teacher training – $30).

BENDIGO Teacher Training classes– Next class is the 6thAugust at 3.30pm. Crusoeden Health.  Turn at the Metricon building on the highway in Kangaroo Flat just up from Bunnings on the same side.  Don’t forget, The HEMP information session is happening at Crusoeden Body on Sunday at 2.30pm to 4pm.

MOUNT MACEDON MONTHLY GET-TOGETHER:   The yoga “ladies who lunch”will happen again on the 9thof August at The Mount Macedon Hotel at 12noon.  This is getting more popular.  Please make time to come.  It is a lovely venue, wonderful “yoga girls”… the table is in front of the fire, the view is terrific, and the food is terrific thanks to a new and inspired chef.  I look forward to meeting you there.


WERRIBEE MASTER CLASS.  I have been asked to conduct a Restorative/Hypermobility Master Class in Werribee.  This will be held on Sunday the 20thOctober, which is the soonest we could get our diaries to align… such is life.

PARKING HOME STUDIO – 37 Morris Road, Woodend.    Please, Please – Park on white gravel in front of the studio.  I had it made especially so that it would be easier for you! If there is no room, then park in the drive-way directly opposite in front of double grey garage rolladoors. Not in front of neighbours driveways please.



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.


HYPERMOBILITY (the course):   The new course is on the ETSY site.

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.





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 AT THE LEVEL AT WHICH YOU ARE NOW – STUDENT OR GRADUATE for your insurance to be valid, and you will need to supply a copy of a valid registration to be insured with AON.  If you insure as a graduate when you are still a student it may cause problems if there ever was a claim – it is possible you may not be insured because you didn’t tell the truth about your qualification.    You also need to forward a current first aidcertificate with your application and CPE when necessary (see below)

Please check your insurance requirements – keep up to date. We have moved to AON insurance.  You will be able to insure on-line BUT you will need a current (student or graduate) Registration to prove you are a member with us to get the advantages that a big firm like AON can offer.

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.


REALLY HELPFUL BOOKS:    ETSY, ETSY    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.
