ETERNITY – A PRAYER FOR PERSONAL PEACE GREAT “OCEAN OF PEACE”,
CREATOR AND DESTROYER OF WORLDS,
WHO IS EVERYWHERE AND IN ALL THINGS,.
I KNOW THAT WHICH IS DIVINE IN ME
IS THE DIVINE WHICH IS YOU….WE ARE ONE.
GIVE ME THIS DAY TO LIVE AND BREATHE,You will be able to download it for $4.50…
SO I MAY THRIVE , GROW
AND BECOME THE PERSON I WAS BORN TO BE.
DELIVER ME FROM FEAR, AND EVERYTHING
THAT WOULD DESTROY ME.
HELP ME TO UNDERSTAND AND BLESS
ALL THOSE WHO SEEM TO BE AGAINST ME,
FOR THEY ARE MY GREATEST TEACHERS.
KEEP ME FROM TEMPTATION,
AND DELIVER ME FROM MY UNTRUTHFUL,
I COME TO YOU FOR PEACE; FOR FORGIVENESS WITHOUT JUDGEMENT OF THINGS BOTH GREAT AND SMALL.
I REST DEEP IN THE FIRM KNOWLEDGE THAT
YOURS IS A LOVE THAT DOES NOT, WILL NOT CHANGE.
ONLY WE CAN HEAL MY TROUBLED MIND,
ONLY WE CAN HEAL MY HEART,
ONLY WE ARE THE ETERNAL “OM”
Author: Jahne Hope-Williams
Yes, I wrote this, so you can have it tattooed on your back or whatever. I wrote it in response to some of my students who have gone or are going through AA and NA, but had a hard time with the concept of God. I asked them if they liked it, they gave it the thumbs up, and one especially bright guy changed two words. It made a big difference (we can always learn and change).
This poem is copyright free. Feel free to use it, send it around, but please. Don’t change it. I am having a poster made of this poem with one of my OM paintings on it and will let you know when it is available on my Etsy shop. www.myyogabooks.etsy.com You will be able to download it for $4.50… Have you got it? Time stands still in those precious moments that look to us just like “ordinary life”.
YOGA CLASSES – Times/cost unchanged from last year. Classes held at the Bentinck THE NEW HOME OF THE AUSTRALASIAN YOGA INSTITUTE. Cost: $10 per person per class (or $100 a 12 class pass: non–transferable). $15 mum plus little yoga bub. $25 per family (mum, dad and two primary school children. Young adults $10 each).

*RESTORATIVE is a beautiful, gentle yoga which is done using lots of props and lots of time. No balancing, no headstands, nothing but gentle stretches and rests. You and/or a friend will love it especially if you have had surgery, are anxious, haven’t exercised for years, have a weight problem, have a neurological problem.
Visitors/Casuals BOOKINGS ESSENTIAL as our classes are pretty full with regulars I.e. People who buy a pass and wouldn’t miss a session.
The Bentinck is on the corner of the Romsey Road and the High Street in Woodend. Enter from the start of the Romsey Road.
www.yogabeautiful.com.au If you are looking for any changes in times and days, then please go to the web site. You will find everything there. There is also our blog www.ministryofyoga.blogspot.com.au
NEXT TEACHER TRAINING CLASS – The next will be on Sunday 1st March at the Bentinck – in the Yoga Room. Please join us.
SHEPPARTON: School holidays looks like the go, still doing the balancing. Let me know out there if you want to come. It is not JUST a course about Restorative Yoga. It also includes massage, crystals, pendulum, and more. At the end you will have lots of new skills to use in your very own practice, helping others. Please email me if you would like to join us……. email@example.com
THE FORGIVENESS BOOK This book is still travelling, keep it moving along, the list is longish. And…..If you would like to be next on the list of 108 people, please email me…firstname.lastname@example.org
NOA BELLING – YOGA HANDBOOK Yes, for those starting out this book is hard to get. Even second hand. I wondered if any of you out there had finished with their book and would like to sell it back to us, WE WOULD LOVE TO BUY IT OFF YOU. We can get it secondhand from time to time for $25 to $30. We will buy yours off you for $25 plus whatever is the postage cost. Email us if you would like to sell yours, and Deb will call you to organise. email@example.com
PHOTOS FROM THE MISSION ALL THE INCOME FROM MY PAINTING GOES INTO OUR VARIOUS PHILANTHROPIC EFFORTS.
This is an ongoing philanthropic effort for us and the money as you know goes towards buying bandages and other necessities for the mission. If you can send even a few dollars, please do (talk to Deb on Tuesdays or Wednesday to arrange). We live the yamas, so, you will know the money will go to where we say it will go, and be used for what we say it will be used for.. No staff or administration fees deducted at any point!
Photos: www.flickr.com/photos/amigasdelsenor PS: You can’t send the money direct, although that would be easier – it has to go through the US Mission office for reasons of security. Everything will change for you when you work out that there is plenty of time in every day to complete the important things.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT – “JAHNE’S YOGA UNIVERSITY”
All our classes are available via distance education and you can start any time..
Within our school there are three levels of YOGA TEACHER TRAINING, plus a course in the Gita, the fundamental source of all yoga teaching through the ages.
*THE BHAGAVADGITA (and YOGA PHILOSOPHY) which is like a Certificate or Diploma Level, RYTA 200 which is our “degree course” and *RYTA500 the “masters”.
1. THE BHAGAVADGITA (YOGIC PHILOSOPHY) 2. RYTA00 – THE BASIC YOGA COURSE 3. RYTA500 – THE NEXT STEP 4. RESTORATIVE YOGA THERAPY TRAINING
As you know I am trained hypnotherapist, registered with both the Australian and American AHA. My specialty is past life regression, and I do get asked a lot to help with quitting smoking. This is not magical, and takes more than one go.
The teacher for this therapy I had in the States charges $3,000.00 for just one of her famous Stop Smoking sessions. She is very successful with a 98% success rate. I guess if you have paid $3,000 you have a real motive for quitting. It would be hard to go back on that – think of what the better half would say! Maybe I should charge $1,000. When you stop you will be saving heaps more than that! Most people have never met, and don’t understand, that there are angels all around us whose only job is to make sure that you don’t get too comfortable, fall asleep and miss the important moments (and gifts) in your life.
THE SHOP and ETSY www.myyogabooks.etsy.com ALL OUR IN-HOUSE DVD’S AND CD’S ARE AVAILABLE AT THIS SITE. Please remember that they are not flashy high cost productions. They are made by Deb and me to answer your various questions. They are useful in your course.
ADDITION TO THE TEACHER TRAINING MANUAL: I am putting together a manual which will be included in each new trainees initial pack. It will also be available on etsy for anyone of you who wants to buy it. It will contain * A Beginners Guide to Teaching Yoga * Basic Anatomy and physiology * The Chakras * The Yamas and anything else I think is useful as the project progresses.
“YIN YOGA” AND “FIVE TIBETANS”
THE UN-MEDITATION COURSE:
YOGA SWINGS: Have arrived. If you want one for your studio, please reserve yours now. Colours – *blue and grey, grey and black or pink and orange. $150 plus postage. I have five second hand swings in perfect condition available for $100. Please contact me personally if you would like these.
THE REVELATION TAROT:
THE CHAKRAS – A COLOURING-IN BOOK and a REFERENCE BOOKLET –
ETERNITY THE PRAYER – (not on the site yet, but will be there soon). I move with the infinite in nature’s power. I hold the fire of the soul. I hold the life and healing”. (Rig Veda)
REGISTRATION/INSURANCE www.yogabeautiful.com.au We are giving you total choice now, although it may be a bit more expensive…..
REGISTRATION AND INSURANCE HAVE BEEN UNCOUPLED. YOU CAN BUY THEM SEPARATELY. DEARER, BUT IT SEEMS THAT IS WHAT YOU WANT. WE AIM TO PLEASE.
YOUR TEACHER TRAINING YEAR (or so): If you are a trainee Yoga Teacher who has been working on the course for more than a year please understand that your course fee only gives you FREE classes with me for your first training year – the first 12 months only. Imagine if what would happen to our Institute if you took three years to finish your course and you could still come to classes free for the entire course. We do our fee calculation based on 12 months of free yoga classes. Your training fees cover you for a year, after that we ask you to pay $10 per class.
Also, just signing up and not sending in any modules means you are not really a trainee yoga teacher, and unless we receive regular communication (even if it isn’t modules), at a certain point we will deem that you have disconnected from us, and we will disconnect from you. And, coming to class with no intention of completing the course just to get the cheaper, easier student insurance, and free classes isn’t exactly living the yamas! Sooner or later we will call your bluff. I have found if you paddle your boat it is easier to maintain the illusion of control, but I tell you it is so much more fun if you pull the oars in and just let the river take you where it will….
VIDEOS: THEY ARE NOT OPTIONAL – THEY ARE NECESSARY! Only $275 per annum. Please look down the list of the videos before you try to do stick drawings, or organise your journal. I have shown you what I recommend.. All you have to do is download. I even did a video on ‘The Gita. Good feedback thus far – thank you. Please. Email us and Debbie will make sure that you are logged in promptly. firstname.lastname@example.org
and SMALL SMALL DRAWINGS…
I have just finished some miniatures for the “1000 OM” Project. I will put them on the site when I have got them totally ready for you to buy. The first will be appearing on the poem above.
YIN YOGA/ANATOMY/MEDITATION DVD’s – all with Paul Grilley Just got a new shipment. They are the best and will form the backbone of your yoga references. As I have told you before when I bought mine they cost $100 or so each. I thought that this was a good investment. I think half that is a steal! And that is what we are selling this for. www.yogabeautiful.com.au
JAHNE’S MENTORING SESSIONS …. Because Jahne has been teaching yoga teachers for more than 40 years, and running a business the Buddhist way for much longer than that (and successfully) she is often asked for advice. Asking course questions is free. This does not mean IDLE Yoga questions “just because you want to know” – She could spend her whole day answering those and getting no-where, in spite of the fact you may think your life will not end if they are not answered.
REGARDING DEBBIE – If you want to speak to Debbie about any aspect of the courses – she has done them, please remember that she only comes in on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. On those days she is available on Ph: 0354 273 518. I am always here, and available preferably on email or text because I teach and am not always at my desk. Don’t hesitate to email me and I will answer your email or text as soon as I can..
THE LAST WORD: I try to imagine life without being able to speak to God, but none of the days without that special energy have the same laughter, or opportunities…..
