THE FOUNDATION – AN INSURANCE OPPORTUNITY FOR US ALL.
I have approached our insurance company, and they have said that if we double the number of our insurance applications (more people paying for their insurance through us) they will donate a percentage of each payment to our foundation. The more people we get signed up, the more they will donate. It is simple. To encourage you in this.
Everyone who places a new insurance with us, or re-registers from the 17th August to the 17th September will receive a template pack (5xA4’s) of the Five Tibetans. Please email your request for insurance to me personally firstname.lastname@example.org. If you don’t use this email, then I cannot guarantee we will get it. (this applies to ANY email you send – send them to me).
Don’t forget that each newsletter is archived on our web site. If you have missed one, don’t ring me, look on the web site at www.yogabeautiful.com.au
NOA BELLING – YOGA HANDBOOK. PLEASE…..WE NEED YOUR ASSISTANCE!
You must love this book, no-one has yet decided to part with it. Please, please pass it on…
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 I will call you to organise. email@example.com
You might be able to still get the book second hand from..
UK 1/ Revival Books Ltd $4.94 $5.90
USA 2/ Goodwill Books $1.50 $12.99
UK 3/ Awesome Books $9.89 $6.47
USA 4/ Hippo Books $5.50 $11.50 condition poor
USA 5/ Hippo Books $5.50 $11.50 condition good
USA 6/ Goodwill Books $1.00 $17.00
USA 7/ The Book Women $5.00 $14.75
Please understand that you are not the only person on the course. I mark each module, from every student and I do it myself. That’s a lot of writing from and to a lot of students – and assures the personal touch that you signed up with us to achieve. PLEASE HELP ME by numbering each page you send me, and putting them in order. Make sure all the pages are there, no drawings missing. If you are a “12 page plus drawings” type of student, then post them. It is so much easier….
If you email, the same applies. SPELLING AND PUNCTUATION: One of the students went mad at me recently because I sent work back unmarked. WHY? The work was sent to me un-numbered, un-sorted, and just pages of text. There was hardly a comma or a full stop. The spelling when “iffy” I can mostly work out, but a pages out of order and then with no punctuation is totally impossible.
PHOTO and scans – remember that if you have a fuzzy drawing and you photograph it, scan and email it, and then I print it – it is going to be almost unrecognisable! If in doubt, or multiples – lots of pages – post it.
YOGA CLASSES (from 1st August)

*RESTORATIVE YOGA 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, or have a neurological problem. It is also a PERFECT pre and postnatal session – if you are pregnant, please get a doctors certificate and bring it to your first class – not because I think you are unwell, but as it is an insurance requirement.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT – “JAHNE’S YOGA UNIVERSITY”
All our classes are available via distance education and you can start any time.. Thank you to those students who are moving from their 200 to another, higher course. Once you have got into the habit of learning, then it is easy to keep going…. 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. RYTA200 – THE BASIC YOGA COURSE
3. RYTA500 – THE NEXT STEP
4. RESTORATIVE YOGA THERAPY TRAINING (WE WILL BE ADDING PRE AND POST-NATAL RESTORATIVE YOGA in our small teach yourself booklets – soon ).
THIS REALLY IS OUR UNIVERSITY of YOGA. Having just been awarded an HonDoc in Spiritual Development I know what this qualification can mean. It was a long time before I would accept the recommendation from my seminary, but once done, I feel that I have achieved something very special and invite you to do the same; therefore I have decided to add this qualification to our program. I invite those of you who would like to try for the highest accolade from our Institute to apply to be accepted in this our HonDRYoga stream. How it will be actually put together is still in the planning stages.
This Hon.Doc. in Yogic Practice and Philosophy, with an emphasis on Restorative Yoga, is aimed at only the very best teachers. They will achieve HonDRYoga on graduation from this final course. This will not be easy. There will be home study modules (which will include drawing by hand, identifiable and reproducible stick figures – the yoga shorthand), plus a requirement for 3 x 30 minute DVD’s of the student demonstrating Pranayama, Restorative and a yoga form of their choice, that indicates clearly their competence to teach Restorative Yoga at the highest level. Keep it in mind when completing your current training – do your very best. It will count if you decide to go forward.
Obviously the applicant for this qualification cannot start at zero – there needs to be an extensive yoga background and teacher training before they can be considered. At least the 200 or 350 hour teacher training level and extensive actual teaching experience. They will also need 3 letters of recommendation from their students.
It goes without saying that my marking of their modules will be strict, and they should be prepared for this. I say again, it will not be easy. If you are interested – please contact me direct and we will go from there. Email:firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
BOOKS: “YIN YOGA” AND “FIVE TIBETANS” “THE YAMAS” “THE UN-MEDITATION COURSE” “THE REVELATION TAROT” “HOW-TO STUDY YOGA BY DISTANCE EDUCATION – A BOOKLET” “THE CHAKRAS – A COLOURING-IN BOOK and a REFERENCE BOOKLET” “CHAKRA BOOKLET”

I move with the infinite in nature’s power. I hold the fire of the soul. I hold the life and healing”. (Rig Veda)
We are giving you total choice now, although it may be a bit more expensive….. Insurance only – $220. If we get more of you insured, we will be given a rebate to add to our Foundation. But only if more of you sign up! Please.
YOUR TEACHER TRAINING YEAR (or so): WE ARE REVIEWING ALL FILES.
For some time it appears, the office staff has been letting you join the course without signing, and sending to us any of the required sign-up documentation – or it has just happened somehow.
In going through our files in the course of putting everything on a very intricate and extensive computer program, we are pulling these out and asking you to sign up. Until you do, you are not really on the course and can’t graduate. If we contact you in error, please relax, go with the flow. We are just trying to get everything as good as we can get it. We are not accusing you of anything, just trying to clear up any issues caused by incomplete files.
We don’t need you to start the course again, or pay again (if you have already paid in full) but we do need you to keep up your payments (or pay those you have missed somehow) and we need you to complete your documentation. You may have misunderstood our terms. You get as long as you want to complete the course, BUT, the payments are over 12 or 18 CONSECUTIVE months.
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.
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, BUT NOT WITHOUT FOLLOWING UP ON YOUR PAYMENTS… YOU SIGNED UP TO PAY MONTHLY REMEMBER! And, coming to class or doing an occasional module 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. We are certainly in the position to notice now.
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. email@example.com
THE YOGA KITCHEN/GARDEN
I have been out in the garden mulching. The parsley looks fantastic – those plants away from the pesky possums. I now have two really big raised beds. It has taken all my effort to fill them up, I am half way, and I imagine that it will be a long term process. I find that my Thursday are calming down, and I look forward to getting out in the garden now the weather is milder. Gardening in the wind and rain isn’t particularly appealing to me, although my book keeper would be out in her garden no matter the weather! The pond shows signs of the frogs and their spawn, getting ready for spring when it will be full of tadpoles. I have been keeping it clear of algae and watercress (not all of it), and using this on the garden beds, it is a good source of natural nitrogen – there certainly is enough of it.
COOKING: I have made dozens of batches of peanut butter cookies. I gave you the simple recipe months ago. 1cup sugar, 1 cup peanut butter 1 egg, vanilla ess. And a prickling of salt. This week I had some left over Philly cheese which I added, as well as chilli, 1tsp ground ginger, 1tsp. Ground cinnamon. Make into balls then press down into cookie shapes with a wet fork. Sprinkle with ground salt and cook for 15 minutes F180 for 15 minutes. Let the cookies cool before you lift them off the cookie sheet. Enjoy. They are simple and gorgeous, even without all the extras I add. You can substitute the sugar, but it may take a few batches until you work out the proportions. The sugar is really crucial in my recipe.
YIN YOGA/ANATOMY/MEDITATION DVD’s – all with Paul Grilley
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 end if they are not answered – experience has shown you and me that “this too will pass”. Jahne is also available for PAST LIFE SESSIONS, AND ERICKSONIAN HYPNOTHERAPY…..
REGARDING THE OFFICE:
Another change. Fiona has gone off to study Ayurveda with Marye at Maiveda Spa in Kyneton. A marriage made in heaven. Sonya has taken her place in our office.
TIMES- If you want to speak to office staff or me, we are available at odd times, but you can book a time suitable to us both. To Talk Money/Accounts, speak to Jackey on Wednesdays at 9.30 to 2’ish. Please Ph: 0354 273 518. I am always available on the email 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.
Please only use the email: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you use any other, you may not get a speedy answer.
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…..
