Please transfer all your account queries to Jacky at If you want a direct answer from me, then as usual,       All mail to go to PO Box 14, Mt.Macedon. Vic. 3441.


COMPUTER HICCUPS:  Thank you all for your patience.  First the computer had to go in for some major surgery, and then my ISP had big troubles and was down for three days.  But we are back now.


THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:    I am gradually de-cluttering.  My daughter says she doesn’t mind how much clutter there is.  She said “mum, just be happy for you,  and if that means clutter, that’s OK”  Then I read in one of those “thoughts for the day” books,  “If a cluttered room means a cluttered mind, what does an empty room mean?” 


NEXT HEMP INFORMATION SESSION:   Just ask me when you come to yoga.  If you want to know more, email me.  I have all the oils, seeds, etc.  I have made some rather lovely massage balm blocks, and essences.   I love using hemp in all my cooking.  For teacher training I made a chewy lemon slice.  Hemp gingerbread (sans ginger) as a base,  lemon tart in the middle, hemp seed crust.  Wonderful, and super easy.

The photo below with the pear is this mornings hemp oil and garlic breakfast.    You may not like it, but I go for it every time over weeties… which are a tad boring to eat, taste like nothing, and do very little for me.  Nothing is boring about the food in the photos, and the protein and omega 3,6 and 9 are my daily allowance PLUS PLUS.     You should try it.  My go to oils are ROYAL HEMP.  Google them, and yes, you can mention my name…


CBD THE COURSE:  Not ready yet, but important if you are working in the alternative health field, and you want to know what it is, what the law says in Australia.  There are also recipes etc…


GRADUATE DIPLOMA MASSAGE CLASS:  It is a fantastic class, and we started last week.  The next Course will start in October/November (REGISTER YOUR INTEREST TODAY) .   This includes a 4week practical class (every Tuesday between 7pm and 9pm) with home study.  It will encompass PPT, and all we know to date about the endocannabinoid system, the CerebroSpinalFluid and hypermobility and how this effects our massage.  Quite a complex class. 

Go to www.pptmassage.comfor sign up details.


MASSAGE CONSULTATIONS:  If you would like to book a massage with me , call me.  We can explore PPT massage, EFT, and a more traditional relaxation massage with oil.  The choice is up to you.  The room is dedicated to massage and a shower etc available if you want a regular massage, and  need to shower  before you back to work.  Cost for one hour: Yoga Students $85, non-members $125


YOGA WITH JAHNE…..CLASS TIMES – all STUDIO classes $20  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.   Spring is on the way – in fact is here some days in the week.  You can come to class and get home in the light – although everything comes with challenges.  At this time of the year it is kangaroos.  If you remember even I am not immune.  My Little grey Mazda was stomped on (but I didn’t miss a class in spite of no car!)


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 6thOctober 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).

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.



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.


NEW SHEPPARTON MASTERCLASS.  Date not decided, I am waiting for the students to get together for a class. On-line seems to be OK at the present.


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.

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.
