YOGA NEWSLETTER 6th November 2017



THOUGHTS FROM MY TEACHER – MARGRIT SEGESMAN (“Madame”). “If you are unhappy with your life, CHANGE IT. You are the architect of your life”.

We had an amazing teacher training session on Sunday, and as usual the students held a casual de-brief together around the cars in the parking area afterwards (always a good sign – lots to talk about).

During my Doctoral Thesis on Spiritual Development with an emphasis of course on yoga, I began writing thinking and speaking about Hypermobility. That led to thinking about the problem with collagen genetic coding, which referenced the CerebroSpinalFluid and its connection and now we are discussing TCells and DNA. This process has allowed us to review what we know about the Koshas (and auras), Sushumna, Ida and Pingala – all those things that we thought about as “Subtle Anatomy”, which turns out not to be so subtle after all. It is real, there is anatomical and physiological machinery of the body that correlates and helps us understand and work with it. Once you begin to see the picture, how everything fits together – like those at Teacher Training, you will be totally blown out of the water. It is most exciting. 

Thank you for all those students who have downloaded my booklet and DVD about the Cerebro Spinal Connections. This is only the beginning of the story – but most essential. 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. The next weekend class is the first Sunday in December, and we have a weekly class at 12.30 on a Wednesday – but this is only for one hour.

Teacher Training? Just in case you haven’t seen any reference to it….. 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. 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 yogafirst@optusnet.com.au for anything to do with accounts, or the usual yogafirst2@bigpond.com. 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.


Attention everyone who is purchasing anything oddly shaped or larger than a letter… If you are waiting for a Registration, and you only have a small mailbox with a small opening please  make sure you visit you local Post Office with your COLLECTION SLIP in hand. Items waiting for collection are sent back to us. This incurs double postage – nothing you will want to do with today’s postal charges.
I have a new landline. 0354 274 383. But I prefer that you leave a TEXT for me on0402 088 170. (or email me directly at yogafirst2@bigpond.com) Thank you.

HYPERMOBILITY AGAIN.   The book and the DVD are available via ETSYwww.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. INSURANCE
  PLEASE NOTE: If you are not teaching then there is no need for insurance. If you are teaching then you will need to be registered, and get 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. However, we have made an alliance with Dancesurance. They 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.

We worked hard to get to this point – but it is much better than I could have expected. So thank you Dancesurance. (Students – You can deal with them direct).

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.


From NEXT MONTH, we are going to fall 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 from there. 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.


To complete Level.3. the students need to apply and do the theory and exam. Those who have not done Teacher Training with me, need to do the full level 3 Exam and assessment. see the site www.restore.moonfruit.com. You may not pass the assessment first go – It is like teacher training. It takes small steps, module by module. Fewer modules, but more complex (for both of us). I will be announcing more about this POST GRAD program in the next newsletter. Those students who have done Restorative Yoga Teacher Training to Level 3 and graduated will get this diploma. Those who did the course very early on, you will have to do Level 3 in order to get the POST GRADUATE Diploma – lots has happened since you did the course.

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).


Please note these have changed.

(Directors – Jayne Boyle  – crusoedenbody@bigpond.com). Regular classes held –please email for timetable.


  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.

ON ETSY. “THE YOGA OF HERBS – SPEAKING AND TEACHING ABOUT HERBS”. It includes a list of ayurvedic herb identities (VPK), and the tarot. You will have a lot to speak and teach about after you read this. It also includes pages to download to advertise, teaching plans. Everything you need to take a class. THE “SPIRIT REVELATION” TAROT

  The Revelation Tarot new extension to the deck is loaded and ready for you. Now ready to be released is the SPIRIT REVELATION TAROT. This tarot has a picture of my angels on the back, but the front, where the image would be – is EMPTY. No image..!! That’s right. No image. It is about letting the spirit speak to you without relying on a picture to make it happen. I think you will find this a challenge. There are twelve cards in the set, plus an instruction fold out, and a small pouch. Because these are very special spirit cards, they come in a box, and therefore the postage is more. To shop for the tarot go towww.myyogabooks.etsy.com. I have made some lovely pouches for your tarot cards. These are also available on etsy. 

NB Because there are 10 Angels on every cards, that means there are 120+ angels going out into the world every time I sell a deck. I completed the “1,000 ANGEL PROJECT” last January, and now I am started on the “10,000 ANGEL PROJECT” . This will help. For those who haven’t heard the story, I started after 9/11. I dreamed the towers falling before the day, and saw the angels rising. I vowed to send 1,000 angels into the world. It took me until last January. TEA LEAF READING, PENDULUM and I-CHING POSTERS

  This is my Tea leaf Reading poster. Being printed as you read this on beautiful paper, and printed in sepia. Not really suitable for a download… although if you wanted A4 black and white, then I could do it for you. As usual go to www.myyogabooks.etsy.com Not there yet, but it will be soon. There is the PENDULUM POSTER/BOARD already loaded on ETSY. This looks amazing under glass, as does the TEA LEAF READING POSTER.   EMAIL NUMBER. There was a problem with the server, but this has been fixed until the next time – For anything, anything at all please email me at yogafirst2@bigpond.com. If you do not your emails may get lost. For money matters please email yogafirst@optusnet.com.au Do not ring unless you have not got email (some people living and working remotely don’t have computers), or you have an urgent question. Email, leave your number and I will get back to you.

So at the moment my TEXT number is 0402 088 170 – preferably leave a text or email. I will return your calls when I can – I am not a slave to either the computer or the phone, so you may find that emails or TEXT (which I always recommend) work out best.
