Thank you, each and every one of you for your love and support over the Christmas period.  I do this, I work at this life BECAUSE OF YOU.  

I could have all kinds of clever words researched or unrehearsed, ready to dazzle you with – however,  I have only two “KEEP SAFE”

You might remember that I have an OPEN HOUSE here Christmas Day.  From 2pm to 4pm (after Church in the morning). If you are at a loose end, if you would like to share a champagne and nibbbles in the garden, by the pond (last year it rained as I remember – or was that during the carol singing?), then do drop in to the studio – 37 Morris Road, Woodend.  No need to ring first.


“MY” MONASTERY – The Wat Buddha Dhamma narrowly escaped destruction in the NSW Bushfires.  Go to their web site if you want to see how close they came.  The fire did take down a number of the small khuti huts,  the tanks, irrigation pipes, and a couple of outbuildings, but the beautiful Sala still stands in the middle of the blackened bush.  Buddhist communities around the world were praying for them.



WEIGHT LOSS GROUP (after Christmas!!!)

We all are a little heavier than we could be, and things aren’t going to improve unless we DO SOMETHING… it is the season for eating.  So I am starting a herbal weight loss group.  We will start in January (after the big-nosh ups at this time of the year) and meet on a Wednesday at the studio at 6.45pm.  If you want to loose weight and can’t be with us, I will send a monthly WEIGHT LOSS IN A BOX so that you can loose weight by distance, and maybe set up a little group of your own.  I will show you how – it is easy.  I will share with you a tried and true way that I have used for years.  It works for me and has helped countless others.

I devised my method when I put on weight after having to be in bed whilst pregnant with Jesse. It was a difficult time for me.   After I gave birth to Jess I couldn’t get into my jeans. Normally after I gave birth I was lighter than before I started, this weight problem had never happened before, and I just sat in the wardrobe and cried.  I hated the feeling.  I tried everything to lose weight but nothing worked – and then I worked out what was needed, and made it into a recipe for success..  It worked wonderfully well so I taught others… it worked for them, and I can teach you and maybe you can teach others.  It is simple.  Please email me if you are interested.


MASSAGE: Please do come for a massage.  I will have time, I won’t be loading myself with things to do, so do drop by.  I look forward to seeing you.  Book a time if you are on holidays too.  $85 for a one hour session – hot rocks, cold rocks,  Depends on the weather.

PAST LIFE CONSULTATIONS: During the holidays I will have more time to  do more videos.  There are not enough hours in the day at the present.  I am finishing the book, doing more study into past life therapy, taking photos…. As well as looking after my students.  

Prices:  Book a two hour session before the 17th of January and get TWO SESSIONS FOR THE PRICE OF ONE. Or book a one hour session for $150.



CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS ARE COMING.  AT THIS STAGE SATURDAY 21ST DECEMBER IS OUR LAST CLASS FOR THE YEAR. Monday the 6th January (at 1pm)  is the first class of the new year.  PLEASE GO TO THE WEB SITE FOR DATES AND TIMES.  THERE ARE CHANGES.   I am just going with the flow at present, but there are a few classes that are historically unpopular, these could be cancelled….  I may also change the cost.  I will have to work with the accountant on this and find out how much the classes are costing me before I can decide.

All on the Web Site.  Go to  for classes.   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:   Next door to the Police Station, Forest Road, Woodend.  Monday: 12noon FREE lunch. YES, WE WILL BE HAVING A FREE CHRISTMAS LUNCH on the 16th of December at 12noon.   There will be no 1pm yoga on that day.  (The 1pm yoga is  held at the Studio in Woodend, not at the Church).


MONTHLY TEACHER TRAINING AT THE HOME STUDIO:   DATE of the next Teacher Training:   Sunday 5th January 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 a Yoga 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 Ist Tuesday in February at 3.30pm. Crusoeden Health.  Turn at the Metricon building on the highway in Kangaroo Flat just up from Bunnings on the same side.


PARKING HOME STUDIO – 37 Morris Road, Woodend. 

If you come to my home studio for yoga or massage or anything – 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, on the road, or on nature strips 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.

LIFE AFTER LIFE:  the book will be released over the next month or so – I will probably do the tidying up of the manuscript over the holidays..  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.

My WEIGHT LOSS IN A BOX program will be available on my ETSY site after Christmas.


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.



Thank you again to those students who have bounced back into action, who are getting their insurance and registrations up to date (I personally would not work without insurance – it is one of the first things I check).  Thank you to those students who have started up again after a long absence, BUT, if your absence has been 5 years or more, and you did little when you first enrolled, then you will have to start the modules at the beginning….   But it is good to start – it is even better to finish.  Another thing you can cross off the list.

 Why Register?  This is one thing I will be doing in the hols.  Emailing everyone and asking you to check that you are registered at the right level, and have your insurance.  Don’t be PART SMART.

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.


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 at the most wonderful time of the year.

Thank you all once again – just for “being there”.  MERRY CHRISTMAS.    Jahne
