THOUGHT FOR THE DAY About de-cluttering.  De-cluttering your house whilst the children are still at home and growing, is like shovelling snow from the front drive before it stops snowing.


YOUR REGISTRATIONS:  Thank you to those students who have re-visited their modules and decided that either they want to keep going and graduate, or its all too much.  Whichever way the dice falls, I really do appreciate it that you have let me know.


MASSAGE CONSULTATIONS: When I was younger, everything was so much easier – even yoga.  This especially applies to massage.  Now I know about hypermobility, the endocannabinoid system, etc etc massage means so much more.  It doesn’t mean it has to be painful, a “crash-crunch” method.  It does mean that you have to be mindful of your client and their needs.  Constantly learning, constantly brushing up your method.  I learn new things every day.   If you would like to book a massage, an Indian Head Massage/PPT, Reiki/PPT I can adapt to what you need and want. Call me.  We can explore PPT massage, EFT, healing energy massage and a more traditional relaxation massage with my very special oil.  The choice is up to you.

My comfy, cosy room is dedicated to massage and a shower etc available if you need that before you back to work.  Cost for one hour: Yoga Students $85, non-members (those who don’t attend our yoga classes)  $125. It is rare that the class is only one hour.  Unless you are in a hurry then we can adapt.  I take my cue from my acupuncturist Peter Gigante – my sessions with him can last much more than the specified time.  It always makes me feel better knowing he is not hurried – even if there is a client waiting.  I know how he works, so when I go I am patient when there is a client taking his time.


PAST LIFE CONSULTATIONS:  I would love to see you if you would like to know what is influencing you in this time frame.  Please note.  If you are taking anti-depressants, or cocktails of pain medications, they stop the effectiveness of Past-Life Process.  You can come, but it will take more than one session to break through the wall put up by these heavy-duty medications, designed to keep you from imagining.


CHANGE TABLE:  one of our students who works for the Kyneton Museum has asked if any of you have a folding change table you could donate   A small, version.  They are short on space.  In public buildings a changing room with a change table should be mandatory in this day and age – but isn’t in this case.  Let me know if you have one and i will pass the message along.



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.

COST:   Yoga $20 per Class Or  CLASS PASS – $135 per 10 CONSECUTIVE classes (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   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 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.

MONTHLY TEACHER TRAINING AT THE HOME STUDIO:   DATE of the next Teacher Training:   Sunday 3rd November 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 The Next class is the 5th November at 3.30pm. Crusoeden Health.  Turn at the Metricon building on the highway in Kangaroo Flat just up from Bunnings on the same side.


MOUNT MACEDON MONTHLY GET-TOGETHER:   JOIN US – DIARISE NOW.  FRIDAY THE 15TH NOVEMBER AT 12NOON The Mount Macedon Hotel (Please note, no children or grandchildren please – this is not that sort of lunch, no offence meant). Please make time to come.  It is a lovely venue, the view is terrific, and the new menu 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.


PT. COOK (SEASONS 5 Pt.Cook) MASTER CLASS.  Amazing, Amazing.  We are starting a Teacher Training GROUP down there, so I will be going monthly to facilitate what will become a major teacher training centre.  Please let us know if you would like to learn to be a yoga teacher, and you live down that way.


PARKING HOME STUDIO – 37 Morris Road, Woodend.    If you come to my home studio for yoga or massage – 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.




THIS IS IMPORTANT.  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.

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.   Being part of your school, of your lineage, gives you Power, Authority, Freedom.     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.


MASSAGE ALLIANCE:   Those students who are doing massage with me will get a certificate which they can pass through to AON to get insurance….


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.

RECIPE:  There’s a glut of carrots at the moment.  I made CARROT MARMALADE.  Ingredients.  800gm carrots ($!!!!) 3 cups of sugar, lime juice, lemon juice, orange juice.  About 2 cups.  I cut the citrus rind into thin strips and popped them in, I added ginger nibblets and glace ginger.  Cooked in the MICROWAVE.  First I did 11 minutes until it was bubbling fiercely , then 4x 4 minute cooks stirring vigorously.  Did the set test on the saucer, and bottled when the mix creased when pushed on the plate.  Have a go.    I do have a lemon tree, however the other citrus were left overs.


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.


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.


Love and Blessings   Jahne…….
