I have been disappointed that some of my students have submitted shortcuts – cut and paste (although there are warnings against this on every module, and every newsletter), or not reading the pages with regards to graduation requirements.  Please note that unless you contact me about any difficulties,  the exam is to be done in the time frame required, the passport is to be filled in as you go through through the course –  in what one of my treasured students called ” the old fashioned way” – pen and paper, journals etc.  and certainly not retrospectively, and not on the computer thank you..  Before you graduate, at the end of the course I want to receive the ACTUAL PASSPORT filled in month by month  It is quite clear in the original HOW-TO pages we sent to you.  It is about commitment, method, and learning to record what you do daily, knowing this is a skill you will need when you are a teacher.

To the student who said that a spread sheet would be more accurate – it is not accuracy that is the primary aim, it is commitment… daily records.  Anyone can cobble together a passport on a computer in the same way an accountant can do end of year figures.  We are better than that!

I know AYI is not a University, but when I do personally do Uni courses on line, if I don’t adhere to the requirements (the format THEY require in the time frames and the method stated) I will get failed. I can’t adjust the courses to my ideas, or submit something in my own format which I consider to be better than my tutor’s.  It would not be marked, or it would be marked down, no matter how brilliant the work.  Please, do not re-design the passport, the exam or the questions.



I only want one thing for Christmas.  I would like everyone who has borrowed a book or a DVD –  TO GET IT BACK TO ME, PRETTY PLEASE…..?    Address.  PO Box 14, Mt.Macedon.  Vic. 3441.



Hi there the files are looking beautiful, thanks to Kate.  We are going through and pulling out everyone who has not contacted us in more than a year or two.  There are quite a few.  We try, but you change emails, change addresses, and don’t let us know.  Some of you go months, sometimes years with no contact.   I found a student this morning who has not contacted us since 2009!!! WE ARE ARCHIVING, and we are deleting and boxing up old files….  Make sure we don’t archive you –  contact us. NOW.  If you have already been archived it will cost $250 to start you up again PLUS your videos.



Are you curious about who you were before you were you?  If you are like me, curious, you will love the adventure and the journey.  I was a student of the internationally renowned Dolores Cannon (1931-2014).  She completed thousands of fascinating  past life investigations.  Join me.

Please book me early for the past-life consultations, as once the holidays begin, people will have more available time and my time will fill up quickly – but as each one takes a minimum of two hours, and I can’t do many in a day (even Edgar Cayce was advised to do only two)  you need to book early.  I will let you know when the booklet on MY PAST LIVES is complete – it is fascinating work.

I am going to do Past Life discussions on the YouTube Channel.  Starting today if the day pans out as planned.

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.

MY PAST LIVES the book will be released over the next month.  This may help you to understand my journey, and anticipate one of your own.  It is interesting that more people are coming from the future in these sessions than from the past…they have come to heal and to teach.


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.




Have you forgotten to re-register.  This will effect your insurance status

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

 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.


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.



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




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.


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…….
