GOOD MORNING PRECIOUS ONES

Honouring the Universe – The philosophy of The Australasian Yoga Institute….

Dedicated to a tradition of excellence in teaching for more than 40 years, The Australasian Yoga Institute offers yoga teachers comprehensive and systematic training in classical yoga.  We teach yoga techniques for body, breath, mind and spirit in 200hr and 500hr certification programs.  Our programs include training in meditation, asana.

(info@medireholos.com.au) Lyonville Studio. 
Sunday 29th May 10am to 12noon
Cost $50 
*For those doing Yoga teacher Training this counts as part of their CONTACT HOURS. 
  
Francis will explore the correct framework of the standing postures AND how these postures can help set up an energy flow by purifying blocked pathways, and as a result can help in deepening the body’s experience of seated and meditation postures.

YOUR MODULES                                                                                                                        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 email, the same applies.  Don’t just scan them any old way.  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 page (or pages) out of order and then with no punctuation is totally impossible.  

If  modules (especially those sent by post) are sorted then we  have had a chance.  We guess and do our best, but I am sure it does no justice to the time and effort a student may put into the modules.     I do appreciate that not everyone knows about grammar, but do your best, do the easy thing before you send the work – number and sort the pages.

  WOODEND TEACHER TRAINING.  
Sunday 5th June 2 to 4 pm at The Bentinck on the cnr. High Street and Romsey Road, Woodend.  Turn into Romsey Road from high Street, and enter through the Romsey Road Gate.  The Yoga Sign is right there,   The building is right ahead of the car parking area on the RHS.  Cost $10 per class for distance education students, or $20 for visitors.  

RESTORATIVE/HATHA YOGA CLASSES with Jahne

*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.  

“The Bentinck” is on the corner of the Romsey Road and the High Street in Woodend.  Enter from  the start of the Romsey Road only.  Park to the left or the right of the side entrance agate ONLY.  Or across the street.

  NEXT TEACHER TRAINING CLASS –
The next will be on Sunday 5th JUNE at the Bentinck – in the Yoga Room.  Please join us.  If you are a distance ed. student then the cost of the afternoon is $10.  If you are a visitor you are most welcome – and if you are not formally a student teacher with us then the cost is $20.   Yes, I know it is Easter.  
 
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 – “AYI 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 ).

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.

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, (As of May the cost is $220) 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.    
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.  yogafirst@netcon.net.au

  GARDENING WITH BENEFITS
Right at the moment I am dealing with an infestation of snails.  In the front of the house they have neglected huddling around the statues of the Buddha and leaving the garden alone which has happened for many years.  They are obviously hungry and bored and taken a shine to my nettles.  In the back yard, it is the parsley and horseradish which have taken a trouncing.  But on Saturday, or the next dry day I will be out there with my garlic, oil and milk mixture and knock this on the head…  

FABULOUS COOKIES
If you want some cookies you can make in a flash and are gluten free, here they are – and only THREE INGREDIENTS.  One cup of sugar, one cup of peanut butter and one egg.  Mix, form into balls, and squoosh down with a fork to make flattish cookie shapes.  Sprinkle with sea salt, and cook in a moderate oven for about 12 minutes.    Let them cool a little then put them on a wire rack to completely cool, and enjoy.  I have to limit myself..  They are so delicious. 

  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 not end if they are not answered.      Jahne is also available for PAST LIFE SESSIONS, AND ERICKSONIAN HYPNOTHERAPY…..  

  REGARDING FIONA AND OFFICE TIMES-  
If you want to speak to Fiona (our new Debbie), she is available at 1 to 3pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.  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.

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…..
