NOTICE: For one week from the 20thof August,  my computer is going to hospital for a heart transplant, so I am going to take the opportunity to paint.  I will be using the understudy computer, but, I am not sure how fabulous it will be, so I am making my apologies now.  Please note that I may not  be able to be as efficient as I attempt to be now… we will have to wait and see.



One of my favourite books is ‘A RIVER RUNs THROUGH IT” You may have seen the movie with Robert Redford narrating.  Tom Skerrit, Brenda Blethyn and  Brad Pitt in the title roles.  Worth sourcing..  The words in that movie about the river, emotions, relationships and Montana are quite beautiful.  It is a memorable movie.  One of my students asked me about “Grace”, and I happened to remember a line from the book.  “Grace is an art, and all art is difficult”. (“art” – anything that is a passion, a focus in your life.)


NEXT HEMP INFORMATION SESSION:  Don’t forget – I have opened the Woodend Studio up between 2.30 and 4 EVERY Saturday.  Drop in.  I will be in the studio, or if the weather is good I will be gardening – and will welcome interruptions. 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, The “MIRACULOUS” TYOH healing oil $35, and the new SATIVA Essence $25.

Of course, the studio is open not just for CBD  I am here, and I am happy to show you around, especially as I am now working on some new ANGEL paintings.  My first ever angels in Pastel colours.


“CBD (Sativa) ENERGY ESSENCE”:  The energy essences are working beautifully.  I have been able to produce a new batch.  So if you missed out last time.  They are back.

STUDIO CONSULTATIONS: Drop in for a chat on Saturday afternoons, or schedule a real consultation when you are ready to listen in depth.  Maybe with pendulum and tarot?

PHONE CONSULTATIONS: (as per the Studio questions above) 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.

Our classes are sooo terrific. They are such fun, so much family.  Thank you girls.  I am loving them all over again.

I am meeting people all the time, and many locals say they “would love to come to class when the weather is warmer”.  As much as I try to understand this, I don’t really.  In the old days we wore skimpy leotards all year.  It did tend to be cold, but that was how it was.  Now, I encourage loose comfortable clothing, we have a great heater (I don’t hold classes on the deck), so the climate shouldn’t be a consideration – should it…. ?  The snow in the picture below happened on Sunday – you will note it is OUTSIDE.  It was toasty warm indoors….

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 there ceased to function a week or so 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 1stSeptember 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 3rdSeptember 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.


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.



The yoga “ladies who lunch” will happen again on the Friday 13thSeptember (easy to remember!) at The Mount Macedon Hotel at 12noon.  EVERYONE WELCOME.  This is getting more popular.  Please make time to come.  It is a lovely venue, 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.



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 aid certificate 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.
