Email Blast 2nd December 2016


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.



ATTENTION:   EMAIL NUMBER – For anything, anything at all please email me at  If you do not your emails may get lost,  as I am gradually going to get rid of the other email numbers….  



If you want to speak to office staff or me, we are available at odd times, but you can book a time.  To Talk Money/Accounts, speak to Jacky on Wednesdays at 9.30 to 1’ish.  To get help directly from me, 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 DON’T RING ON THURSDAYS– it is my day off, and if I sit down at the computer the day just disappears, and I work right through.  I am sure you understand.  There is always lots to do.  Jacky is coming to terms with the phones,  so on Wednesday when I am not there try 0354 273 518… or email.

Christmas – Jacky is going to the USA for a week and this Wednesday is her last day .  So if you have a money issue ring her on 0354 273 518 on Wednesday between 10am and 12pm.  She might have an issue with you – so she is going to be on your tail.  Get straight before Christmas.  Just because you have Christmas expenses keep in mind we do too.  Your training agreement did not say you get a holiday with the modules or the fees over Christmas…  so pay attention to the YAMAS.  Keep firm with your agreement with us. 

Please only use the email:  If you use any other, you may not get a speedy answer.

I am trying to keep up with the WEB site.



This is not a right, it is a great privilege.  And it CAN BE awarded under very specific conditions.

  1. That you are current regarding your course payments
  2.  That you are sending in your modules regularly to achieve your full teaching qualification
  3.  That I am comfortable that you can in fact teach (and it is not just about asanas)
  4.   And that you agree to teach only what has been taught to you to the date of getting the insurance.

I have brought some anomalies to the attention of the insurer.  We are having a conference call on Friday, and I might take the opportunity to go to their Queensland head office over the Christmas – just to get the best benefits with the best safeguards.  The student insurance is just that STUDENT insurance, you are not able to behave and teach like a graduated teacher, and the Student Insurance is going to reflect this VERY VERY clearly. 



You might be able to still get the book (and many others) second-hand from the bookshops below.  I would advise you to buy a few so that you can amortise the postage cost across a number of books rather than one.

                                                          Cost       Mail

UK      1/ Revival Books Ltd                 $4.94    $5.90

You are not doing me a favour when you do this course and do the modules!  I wrote the course, and I am constantly working to make it better for you.  I know what the answers are– you have to go look and find them.  This includes the illustrations.  Yes, you can do “iffy” illustration, you can justify not really trying by saying drawing isn’t part of yoga – but understanding IS.   Sometimes students say that Yoga isn’t spiritual YES IT IS.  If you don’t want to really get into yoga, if all you want are the asanas– then precious ones, you have chosen the wrong teacher.   Live by the Yamas.  

If you have signed up to do this course, then you have signed up to do it my way and the way of the YAMAS.  I know what it takes to get through and keep excited.  *Don’t KILL your opportunity by hiding from the truth – *Don’t STEAL time and waste energy looking for excuses why you can’t do something – *Tell the TRUTH, and don’t try and cover your “I can’t” (I won’t) with excuses –  *Use every minute as an opportunity TO WALK WITH GOD (Brahmacharya), respect me and yourself by doing your best– and *Don’t take more of my time, and your space than you need looking for ways to get out of doing things that underneath you know you can do. 

This is not just a yoga course, it is a course in personal Development.  Use it.  Learn from it.  

I love you, I support you, I accept you wherever you are.   I am for you. 

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…..

I am an “ overcomer”.  I  believe in healing.  I believe healing can happen up close and at a distance.  If I reach out and touch you,  it confirms to you that there is no distance.  Touching you transfers blessings to you.  There is power when you lovingly touch and embrace

… massage and heal.

We have had some amazing healings to date, and in personal consultations there are times when I am able to see the past life originations (not all the time). I personally do PPT Massage, Herbal Raindrop Massage, Relaxation Massage…  I am oldish, I have taken on many trainings and done hundreds and hundreds of massages….heaps. If you would like to come, look at the yoga timetable and make an appointment before or after the yoga times.  Give me a couple of options just in case I am busy.  I can do a beautiful massage and a healing together or just a healing.  The healings are by donation.  Massage is $95 per hour or $50 per half hour.

I can do the massage at The Bentinck, or in my fabulous Studio.  The Yoga place in Morris Road….  I can see the massage table from where I am sitting right now.  The windows beside the table look out over the garden.  It is truly beautiful.  Come and experience it with me.

My beautiful garden is just bursting with energy.  However, the garden spirits and me been disturbed by a development that is going on a few blocks away from me.  In one house the person had 6 workers in, and put in a ‘MAC-GARDEN’ first slicing back every living thing from the garden that was growing.  Every time the nursery does this I am sure it looks the same.  Hygienic/neat.   The dirt was cleaned and replaced with designer mulch, turf was rolled out, neat designer trees were planted.  This ‘vogue’ garden replaced a wonderful wild and fruitful orchard.  A garden alive with flowers, herbs and fruit.  

Beside this perfect little box, a number of units are being built…  to do this some magnificent old trees were brought down – killed.  

This destruction had been going on for two days with the biggest tree.  First they ripped off the lower branches, then they sliced the higher limbs and left it there bleeding sap all Sunday.  This morning they came in with saws and spent the morning slicing into the magnificent trunk.  There was enormous shot and quake as the tree eventually came down.   When they tractors go I will go in and pray for the trees and the spirits of those magnificent majestic trees… What has been done is terrible.  The developers have been doing this all around me.  I cannot leave my ground… I have to stay for my garden – I am the only one who can save the trees I have planted.  

If you would like to know more about how you can work with the spirits of the grade, Read about Findhorne in Scotland. 

Everything will change for you when you work out that there is plenty of time in every day to complete the important things.



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) – you need a bit of background before taking on this course – it is not an “easy option”.




5.      ***STARTING YOUR OWN TEACHER TRAINING STUDIO (by application to Jahne)


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.



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.  



IF YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT YAMAS AND CHAKRAS – my own little books are on etsy.  Why spend hours looking for the information when you can pay under $10 for these books and have a very valuable easy-to-read reference and resource.    If you get them and read them they will help you with many of the concepts that you are having trouble with especially in your modules.  



If you do massage, or like using essential oils in your studio or home, I have a wonderful supplier, and I have been buying oils in bulk and can now on-sell them.  They are not watered down, but neither are they hugely expensive.  When you are dealing with the MLM’s then you are paying multiple commissions, for me that doesn’t apply.  I am selling beautiful oils at good prices.   I will put a full list in next weeks newsletter, but if you have special needs – or are looking for special oils, let me know.  Of course if you want rare absolutes (like Pink or White Lotus for instance) it will be much more expensive, but they will be pure, and they will be the best price I can do.

THE OILS – I can get most that you might want.  Let me know what you are trying to achieve, and I will have the oil that can help you.  If you feel like doing massages that is OK, but I have been watching a few tutorials, and what people will say to sell oils is flabbergasting.  Like – if you massage a baby with oils and the skin goes red that is great – the toxins are being released.  No, the toxins are not being released, the baby’s skin is too delicate for essential oils…care is essential no matter the mage of the client. 

I do a beautiful herbal oil massage – take the time to come visit – you will love a massage in my studio.     



Insurance only – $220.  If we get more of you insured, we will be given a rebate which will be donated to our Foundation.  But only if more of you sign up!  Please.   Your insurance is tied to Registration.  We get the Insurance, the unique “student insurance”, the hot desk, and the large list of modalities available to us at no extra cost – BECAUSE YOU HAVE TRAINED WITH US.  Your Insurance is TIED to the Registration.


YIN YOGA/ANATOMY/MEDITATION DVD’s – all with Paul Grilley. UP, UP, UP!!!

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, and I still do.  We have had to increase the price TWICE – everything everywhere is going up, and we have held this price for a number of years.  Now. $57.50.  At this price we are accounting for currency increases and decreases, and they are still cheaper than I paid for mine initially.  Look at Ebay – everyone is about the same.  At twice the price they were still worth having.   With Christmas coming, please order yours today.  I don’t have many left and I am waiting for more stocks to arrive in the mail – at this time of the year they sometimes get caught up in customs.


I am always as close as the post or the email, always working to make things better, dig deeper.  Why?  So you can be the best you can be.  Email me, talk to me, send me photographs.   I look forward to hearing from you.
