THOUGHTS FOR TODAY
I hope you had the most wonderful Christmas and new Year. I thought I was going to have a retreat time, but it didn’t happen… I had a sign on the door, everything. Out of that came one of the most social Christmases I have had in a long while. My Christmas dinner was held at The Bentinck with a bunch of my yoga students. About 40 counting parents and friends. It was fantastic. I am sure that they will still be eating the left overs, the spread was completely over the top. Masses of everything. The students did the cooking and it was amazing for people who in the week have problems with cooking. I am sure they will be good at BBQ’s whenever that happens. This is my first week back, and I have spent a lot of time in the garden – time to think. Trimmed, pruned, cut off lower branches. I have even ordered a new queen for my hive. They come in the post! DNA/TCELLS/BLISS
I have been writing an article for The Australian Yoga Life magazine. In the process I have got caught up in more side issues regarding DNA and T-Cells. When we do Reiki, when we read the Tarot, when we meditate, then perhaps, it seems to me that we are talking to the DNA? Everything seems to be connected to everything else, and I can’t do one thing without thinking about the other. I can’t think about the Collagen malformation without asking WHY, and when I ask why then we have to look at the DNA, and that is where things get interesting. Edgar Cayce had a room he called “The Spooky Room”, and my mind feels a bit like that. This isn’t my spooky room, but it is the room where I do most of my writing, and thinking
You have to start somewhere, and the beginning is a good place. Please, teachers, catch up by getting these books, reading them and reflecting on your practice.www.myyogabooks.etsy.com. THEY ARE JUST THE BEGINNING. Come to Teacher Training when you can.
Teacher Training? Just in case you haven’t seen any reference to it – and someone said I never write about it in the newsletters. I do. All the time. You have to read this newsletter to keep up! ….. Teacher Training: Ist Sunday in the month between 2 and 4, every Wednesday at 12.30 and philosophy on Saturday morning at 11.30. AFFILIATES and those who would like to be. HELLO TEXAS! Teachers! Please give this some thought. If you would like to Affiliate and start teaching teachers (you need to have graduated), then please email me and we will arrange a visit – or a chat depending on where you are of course. If you have a studio, it’s your next step.
Please use the email address email@example.com for anything to do with accounts, or the usual firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 – small mail box out in the open means that rain is an issue. Please address all land mail to the address it has always been – PO Box 14, Mt.Macedon. Vic. 3441. Until you see a change written here in large letters, that is where it will be.
PLEASE COLLECT YOUR MAIL PROMPTLY….
Please make sure you visit you local Post Office with your COLLECTION SLIP in hand if you are waiting for items from us. Items waiting for collection are sent back to us. This incurs double postage – nothing you will want to do with today’s postal charges.
HYPERMOBILITY AGAIN. The book and the DVD are available via ETSY. www.myyogabooks.etsy.com
The more that I do in this field, and the more that I think about it, the more relevant it becomes to all of you. IT IS AN ESSENTIAL PART OF RESTORATIVE YOGA THERAPY – the course. Every teacher should read this. INSURANCE
INSURANCE ALTERNATIVES. We are no longer closely involved with our teachers with regards to insurance…. AJGallagher seems to be the only one who will insure students who have not graduated but are teaching – although I must say they are increasingly difficult to deal with. However, we have made an alliance with Dancesurance which appear to insure students (trainees not yet graduated) cheaply, and, if you have a studio, they are really the only ones who insure this with understanding. If you are a student MAKE YOUR STATUS CLEAR, if you don’t, and need to make a claim, you may discover (too late) that you are not covered.
RESTORATIVE YOGA THERAPY INSURANCE: Dancesurance and AJGallaghers have both come through with a specialist insurance for our Restorative Yoga Therapy graduates. They can add this special insurance on to their ordinary insurance AT NO EXTRA COST. They have examined the course, they have looked at the caliber of the students going through, and made their decision. All you need to do is to supply a copy of your registration when you apply. Dancesurance – www.DanceSurance.com
Arthur J Gallagher – www.ajg.com.au
Why Register with THE AUSTRALASIAN YOGA INSTITUTE?
PLEASE, PLEASE CHECK YOUR REGISTRATION. You need to be currently registered for your insurance to be valid, and you will need to supply a copy of a valid registration to be insured. Please check your insurance requirements – keep up to date. They change quickly.
REGISTRATION – CONTINUING EDUCATION REQUIREMENT
We have fallen in line with other organisations and ask people who are registered with us and wish to re-register to do at least one short course in the year as a continuing education requirement. I have been shocked by what teachers THINK they know, and teach. You need to keep up. You can do one of my little courses on ETSY, or someone else’s, doesn’t have to be onerous, just something to keep you on your academic toes so to speak.
Every month the same names turn up. Insufficient funds, problems with the number etc etc. The explanations are wondrous, BUT, you have a month between payments to make sure that everything is in order. So, to encourage you we are taking the lead from other organisations, and we are going to charge $15 every time we are met with problems with funds. If it happened occasionally I would just think OK, try again. But it is every month and takes time. Jacky applies a couple of times to make sure she has the right numbers, then she emails, then she types up a list, then she passes it through to me, and I start the process again. Sorry. But it is wasting time. We already make every effort to accommodate you, keep our tuition down, are frugal so you can be trained economically. So please, try to be on time and have your funds in order. Otherwise, we will have to up our fees to cover these time wasting problems, and I am resisting that.
RESTORATIVE YOGA THERAPY – POST GRADUATE DIPLOMA
Those people who have attended all workshops, completed the exams satisfactorily and graduated from all parts of level 3 (prior to October 2017), and come to the Sunday Teacher Trainings, will be deemed to have completed the Graduate Diploma in Restorative Yoga Therapy (and more). It is a big course, and at the end you will have almost done a Doctorate yourselves. You certainly will see yoga and teach it in a totally different way to any other teacher. I call it “QUANTUM YOGA” (“Quantum” meaning multidimensional, not as it is often portrayed in yoga as dynamic sequencing).
VISITS TO YOUR STUDIO.
If you would like me to visit your studio in the next year, please email me and let me know when you would like a visit and we can work out HOW it can be achieved. The further away you are, then the larger the travel costs will be of course. But the information we are working with is so important for the future of yoga and healing, that it will seem a very small investment (even if you are in the UK or the USA – or anywhere else on the planet). Please email me in the first instance at email@example.com. I can teach, lecture, and of course do the occasional PAST LIFE PROCESS. But I need some time for this of course – 3 hours per person!
THE STUDIO – 37 Morris Road.
Tuesdays: 10 am Restorative.
Wednesdays: 12.30 I am making this a teacher training day. If you are a teacher, come. It may be easier for you than the monthly Sunday. Come to both!
Saturday: Philosophy 11.30 am, Restorative 12.30 pm. THE BENTINCK – on the corner of High Street and Romsey Road, Woodend.
Enter ONLY through the Romsey Road gate where you see the yoga sign. Do not park in the front of the Bentinck. The main two story building is not The Yoga Centre.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday: Hatha Yoga 6.30 pm
Wednesday: 5.30 pm Restorative, 6.30 pm Hatha Yoga
Friday: 6:30 pm Progressive Yoga Relaxation Class. I will also be using this time to speak about something not many teachers will discuss – life and death. We can meditate and chant. This is up to you.
Saturday: 10 AM Hatha Yoga CLASS/CONSULT PRICE STRUCTURE (from 7th January) There are no classes that are more soundly based than ours. We have been teaching for 50 years. We are the longest serving (most of the teachers in the Macedon Ranges have come through our teacher training Institute), and we believe we can help you to be the best you can be. If you don’t come to us, please make sure that your teacher is trained and qualified.
Even if you don’t come to class there still are expenses to be met. We always used to limit the length of class pass to one month – everything was based on a one month pass, and I am doing it again. Pay $20 per class, or book ahead for 10 CONSECUTIVE classes over 10 weeks and pay $135 for the ten. It is a saving – but only if you come to class every week.
- TERM PASS: 10 class pass – 1 class a week for 10 CONSECUTIVE classes over 10 weeks $135 2 classes per week for 10 weeks $250
- SINGLE CLASSES $20
- PHILOSOPHY CLASSES 1 hour – Trainee Yoga Teacher $15 (casual $20)
- PHILOSOPHY CLASSES casual attendees 2 hours – $20
- MONTHY PASS $175 (unlimited Hatha and Relaxation). If you come to Monday, Wednesday, Saturday morning and one meditation or teacher training, that would be $60 per week. Four weeks with that regime would be $240. So $175 is quite a saving. Especially when the average Yoga Class in other schools is $25 per class.
- YEARLY PASS (if paid by 1st of February ) $1,550 unlimited Hatha & Relaxation
Please note that at the Bentinck, the Medical Clinic that we have all been waiting for is nearing completion, however, more work is being done on the driveways and ambulance bay. If it is full, park opposite. Walk carefully, workmen leave building materials about.
TEACHER TRAINING AT THE HOME STUDIO:
The next will be on Sunday 4th February, 2pm to 4pm at my home studio (37 Morris Road in Woodend). Please join us for Teacher Training 2pm to 4pm. 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 $15 (which applies to everyone. If you are a visitor and not formally a student teacher with us then the cost is $20 – for a 2 hour class! Come. We did the Studio Blessing this week before class. You will see the mark on the door lintel 20+C+M+B+18. The year, plus the names of the 3 wise men from the bible. Gaspar, Balthazar and Melchior. I hope the Universe places its gifts before you, as it always does for us.
ANYTIME STUDIO PARKING – Park your car either on the white gravel around the front of the studio, or if this is full, then there is an empty drive and front yard leading to a shed directly opposite us. Park there and in a way that others can too.

Bendigo Teacher Training classes – The first Tuesday of the month. Next class isTuesday, February 6th (I think at this point). Turn at the Metricon building on the highway in Kangaroo Flat. It is a traffic light intersection, just up from Bunnings. Crusoeden is the building behind Metricon building, and faces Church Street. It’s easy to find. Cost: $15 per class for everyone who attends – thank you.

THE CRANIO SACRAL CONNECTION. I am planning to do an A3 poster of the spine, brain, “Cave of Brahama, Sacrum and Coccyx and all the anatomy that will help you to teach your students and clients about the subject of our workshops and our research. Keep checking on www.myyogabooks.etsy.com
THE SHOP AND ETSY.
Some time ago I sketched a portrait of myself (left). I found it difficult to see myself, and be honest about what I saw. An artist friend of mine has made a project of painting her portrait and is up to the 100th! One was enough for me. Drawing charts, making books is easy in comparison. Why haunt libraries for information on the chakras, yamas, and other yoga philosophies relevant to the course. It is all on ETSY. For you who have never used ETSY please visit. It is fabulous and oh so EASY. You will find all our books, our DVD’s and CD’s on ETSY. (The Paul Grilley DVD’s are on our web site shop). Please go to www.myyogabooks.etsy.com. Or www.yogabeautiful.com.au. for the Paul Grilley DVD’s. If you are new and haven’t read about YAMAS, CHAKRAS then I have distilled them for you. Go to myyogabooks site as above and have a look – especially at the new book and DVD on Hypermobility. I am loading our newRestore/Relax guided meditation on USB, and available on ETSY. If you can’t come to Friday then get one of these and you can do it anytime.
