HI THERE STUDENTS…

Please if you want to email me PERSONALLY please use email@example.com. Don’t use any other number. And if you are sending mail, any kind of mail, send it to PO Box 14, Mt.Macedon. Vic. 3441. Don’t use any other address. Do not use ANY OTHER ADDRESS! Thank you.
OUR NEW BENDIGO TEACHER TRAINING GROUP.
Last Sunday we had an open day and Introduction at Crusoeden Body in Kangaroo Flat, Bendigo (not far from Bunnings). It was splendid and we had a lovely day. New Trainees signed up, and we are now well on our way. If you are reading this and live in the Bendigo area, please go visit. Their web site iswww.crusoedenbody.com.au. They have a gorgeous sangha. If you would like to train to be a yoga teacher, and like to feel you are part of a yoga family, a community, then this is the group for you.
ANOTHER WORKSHOP AT HEPBURN SPRINGS with Francis and Fabio (our Affiliates so the time here counts as CONTACT HOURS)
You are all invited to join this Francis and Fabio for a Yoga Nidra session this Thursday (2nd June) 6pm (1hr) or next Friday 7pm at Lazuli Hepburn Springs.
Yoga Nidra is a very powerful technique that can help you experience deep conscious relaxation. It is a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional rest and relaxation. A wonderful practice for healing and re-harmonising and reducing stress. (see below for more information on Yoga Nidra).
Within this restorative Yoga Nidra session we will introduce teachings and techniques on how to create meaningful and powerful intention that can help with creating change and transformation.
Location: Lazuli , Borsa Hall, 5 Ninth Street, Hepburn Springs
Date: This Thursday June 2nd, Friday June 10th 7pm
Time: 6pm – 7pm Cost: $20
Bookings are essential. Ring Francis at 5348.5579, or Suzi 0407 094 891
DO YOU WANT TO TEACH TEACHERS? BECOME AN AFFILIATE.
If you are qualified, and insured and Registered (preferably with us), then do consider becoming an affiliate.. Teaching teachers. It is a great opportunity to take your studio up a notch, and inspire the whole student body. Call me firstname.lastname@example.org if you think you have what it takes. Doesn’t matter where you live, we can organise it.
TEACHER TRAINING 1st Sunday in June (5th June), 2pm to 4pm then yoga at 4.30pm
I know your presence is not mandatory, however, I would advise you to come along. We always do heaps more than I have planned because of the questions you ask. This week though, it will be a very practical lesson, so dress for yoga (and bring socks just in case it turns cold – it is Woodend ) don’t just drop in on your way to the “cocktail hour”. Get ready to THINK – this is serious stuff.
TEACH YOURSELF BOOKS…
“YIN-YOGA”, “RESTORATIVE YOGA” “YIN4KIDS” and ‘PREGNANCY YOGA including AQUA YOGA” up now onwww.myyogabooks.etsy.com
If you have your own studio, or teach (or just want to know more) or want to do workshops, but don’t feel confident that you know enough – then use these books as the foundation. Everyone in the class buys a book, comes to the workshop. You do a class, embellish it with things you like to do, add diet, meditation… you could easily have a one day or two day work shop based on one of these books. Should be good, and a whole lot easier than starting from scratch. Plus, your students can decide to get a certificate at the end from me if they want that. It all helps.
The courses in these booklets are complete with descriptions, class plan, background, embellishments – everything you will need to develop a class of your own. They are NOT TEACHER TRAINING COURSES. They are instruction booklets. The cost is $45 for each booklet, and if you want a certificate you can do the exam attached, and if you pass, I will send you a certificate. There is a charge for the certificate and exam, however, it will save you having to do a long and expensive course which, if you have already qualified and graduated as a yoga teacher (or are on the way) is probably over-kill don’t you think? And you will have all the tools you need to extend your yoga classes, and add a new skill for under $200.
Lee said…..“I felt like the manual gave me confidence to be able to mimic the class and gave me a clearer understanding of the principals of Yin Yoga. I really enjoyed it Jahne and i got something out of it which i will continue to do so as well. So as you said in the manual “i have written this book for you so i hope it will be useful” – and it is, so thank you very much Jahne!”
YIN YOGA/ANATOMY/MEDITATION DVD’s – all with Paul Grilley
This is one of my major sources and fits beautifully with the course we have put together. BUY ALL THREE. You will never regret it. They are the best and will form the backbone of your yoga references. Don’t hold back it will be false economy. 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
A BOWL full of SOUL
I actually have lost a little weight whilst on Bec’s wonderful soups and salads – and I have learned to eat a little differently. Now I eat a whole lot more for lunch and dinner. I have been guided by her potions. Not much different to that which I ordinarily eat, but more of it. This means no snacking….
I don’t often give adverts, but one is required here. BOWL full of SOUL – Phone: 0431 697 613. “Bowl full of Soul” is also on Facebook, and that is where you will find the menus.
KITCHEN FANTASTIC. REPEATED…
I have done many repeats, and handed around this recipe to heaps of people. A wonderful cookie recipe given to me by Nicholas our Tuesday evening yoga teacher. One egg, one cup sugar, one cup peanut butter and a splash of vanilla essence. Mix, divide into tablespoon sized balls, press down with a fork sprinkle with course grained salt, and cook in a moderate over for 10 to 12 minutes. Quick, and oh so easy. Anyone could do it. When I made mine I didn’t have a cup of peanut butter so used coconut oil, and crushed peanuts, and then I added half a cup of ground flax seed mixed with cacao. That tasted pretty wonderful too. The next batch I put a little piece of chocolate on top after I had taken them out of the oven – it melted over the cookie, and was SINFULLY good.
THE BLOG AND FACEBOOK
For anything yoga – blog, www.ministryofyoga.blogspot.com . I have put up what I call my schedule for those people who wonder how I do what I do in a day.
I don’t update every day. But I do go on from time to time. There has been lots happening in my life and Facebook and social media is not a priority. Given 15 minutes I would rather meditate. Much more fruitful, and I feel much better afterwards than bashing away at the keyboard… but I am going to work on it.
NOA BELLING – YOGA HANDBOOK. PLEASE…..WE ALWAYS NEED YOUR ASSISTANCE!
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 We get so many folk get back to us saying how wonderful this book is. There is a later edition available with lots of black and white photos in it, but my favourite is the first edition which was all colour. If you can find one, keep it close by – it is a wonderful resource.
YOGA CLASSES at the home of The Australasian Yoga Institute….. The Bentinck.
I AM FLAGGING NOW THAT THERE WILL BE A LOT OF CHANGES IN JULY, so watch this space.
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).
WHERE: “The Bentinck” on the corner of the Romsey Road and the High Street in Woodend. Enter from the start of the Romsey Road only – the sign is big and clear .
PARKING: If both sides of the car park are full when you arrive, please park over the road – you just have to walk across Romsey road to yoga, and that’s not such a hard thing. Don’t park anywhere else. As you enter the gate, park only to right or to the left – not straight ahead. That also is staff parking.
CLASS TIMES –
Monday 5.30pm RESTORATIVE, 6.30pm Hatha class
Tuesday *10am RESTORATIVE Yoga therapy with Jahne , and 7.30pm Hatha class
Wednesday 12.30 Yin with Fiona , 6.30pm Hatha with Jahne
Friday 6.30pm Hatha with Jahne
Saturday 9am RESTORATIVE Yoga with Nicole, 10am Hatha Yoga with Nicole,
12.30 *RESTORATIVE Yoga therapy with Jahne,
Sunday 4.30 *RESTORATIVE Yoga therapy with Jahne
RESTORATIVE YOGA THERAPY CLASSES with Jahne
At the moment I am the only one locally able to take RESTORATIVE YOGA THERAPY CLASSES. Although others may take Restorative Yoga. If you have a serious health issue, make sure that the class you are coming to is taught by me. My classes are a therapy class, and if you buy a class pass you may be able to get a refund from your health benefit fund (depending on the fund). If you are buying your yoga a class at a time at $10 per class it probably won’t be worth the admin hassle. Restorative Yoga is quite different to a HATHA Yoga Class. On request I started a Sunday class, most people can make 4.30 on Sunday, and I hope you can too.
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.
NEXT TEACHER TRAINING CLASS –
The next will be on Sunday 5th June at the Bentinck – in the Yoga Room, enter through Romsey Road only. Please join us. If you are a distance ed. student then the cost of the afternoon is $10. If you are a visitor and not formally a student teacher with us then the cost is $20.
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”
READING: I read “Autobiography of a Yogi” for the umpteenth time this week. What a fabulous book. I always get something new out of it. If you haven’t read it, you must. There are things to be learned on every page. I am starting at the beginning and doing it again, that’s how much I loved it!!!
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.
1. THE BHAGAVADGITA (YOGIC PHILOSOPHY)
2. RYTA200 – THE BASIC YOGA COURSE
3. RYTA500 – THE NEXT STEP
which you can take in a number of ways. You must start with 200 hours first.
4. RESTORATIVE YOGA THERAPY TRAINING
5. PPT Massage technique. A stand-alone class, fully insurable.
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.

I move with the infinite in nature’s power. I hold the fire of the soul. I hold the life and healing”. (Rig Veda)
After years at a very cheap price by industry standard, we are upping ours. If you want yoga insurance with us the cost is now $220 pa. Because we have been with them since they started, it means we get a “hot desk” answered by a real person, in Queensland not India, who knows who you are. We also can get the student insurance, which is a very special advantage. With regards to the forms – we are updating and simplifying. It won’t be done in a flash – so thank you in advance for your patience. Our insurance company is underwritten by Lloyds of London, and has recently acquired OAMPS (I am sure you have seen this about). We have the advantage, we have a niche within that business, and are cared for, which is excellent when you have questions, and want service.
YOUR TEACHER TRAINING YEAR (or so):
Signing up for a course – our course included, is like buying a car. You can’t buy it, take it for one run, leave it in the garage and a year later go back to the dealer and ask for your money back. It doesn’t work like that. If you are on the course, you are on the course until you write and let us know that you are not. If twelve months and more have elapsed with no contact in spite of all our newsletters, etc…. then you have (as far as we are concerned) been on the course for 12 months, even if you have done NOTHING in that time.
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.
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….
TAKE CLASSES WITH JAHNE ANYWHERE, ANY TIME.
VIDEOS: THEY ARE NOT OPTIONAL – THEY ARE NECESSARY! Only $275 per annum.
NEW TEACHERS…BEFORE YOU START THE COURSE PROPERLY LOOK THROUGH THE VIDEOS. I can’t stress this enough. Please look down the list of the videos before you try to do stick drawings, or organise your journal. NOTE WELL: they are not in order. They do not match up with the modules and they were not designed to do that. You are yogis doing a course. You do not need the trainer wheels. Get a feeling for how they are set up, what’s where. It will save you heaps of time later on. There are stick figures, respiration, philosophy, how to teach….even the garden is there. You will love them, but you have to get to know them – it’s not just about asanas. My various hair incarnations alone will keep you interested!
CONSULTS WITH JAHNE
If your question is a lifestyle issue, a domestic issue, or a personal issue and you want personal advice (counselling), Tarot (?), even hypnotherapy and of course ONE-ON-ONE RESTORATIVE YOGA THERAPY….then there is a charge. My service is professional and there is an hourly rate – for the Restorative Yoga Therapy there is the possibility of a refund from your Health benefit fund, depending on the fund. Enquire before you decide to make a booking if this is important to you. Teacher Training issues at the moment are part of the course, and cost nothing – but you need to make an appointment. Please, respect my 50 years of teaching and training. My time is valuable, you know I am always teaching, studying or working with my students – it is all a matter of energy and exchange. We are a Sangha. Thank you.
FIONA, and JACKEY and ME…. THE OFFICE.
FIONA: Is doing the everyday office work. She is the one who is there when I am not there in the afternoons, Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays. You can always give her a call if you have an admin question.
JACKEY is our bookkeeper. For the next 8 weeks she will be working from 9am to 12 noon on Wednesdays. If you want to know anything about accounts, ring at this time. You can ask me questions any other time, but I may not be able to give you a definitive answer.
ME: During the week, mostly you will be dealing with me. I am having a lovely time getting close to all my students after years of leaving you all in Debbie’s hands. Right at this moment, if you have a question about your course (until Fiona gets up to speed), truly, I am the only one absolutely qualified to answer you. If I don’t answer right away, be patient and call back. Please email in the first instance at the number below – only the number below… and set up a time when we won’t be disturbed, and will be in a place where phone connections are possible. My email firstname.lastname@example.org If you want to know anything about your course..if you have problems, concerns, then email me. As I have said. Be patient. We are working hard to be the best we can be.
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…..
