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.
ATTENTION: EMAIL NUMBER – For anything, anything at all please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do not your emails may get lost, as I am gradually going to get rid of the other email numbers….
THE FOUNDATION – AN OPPORTUNITY FOR US ALL.
As you know we are asking you all to become members or contribute in some way to the Foundation. Even a $5 bill in the mail would be helpful if enough of you could do that. However, to really boost the coffers, I 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. We all need insurance, you won’t have to pay any extra, and a percentage will go through to our foundation. PLEASE PLEASE help us here.
YOGA TEACHER TRAINING Master Class – with Jahne, assisted by Jayne Boyle and Nerissa
Crusoeden Body. (email@example.com)
Next Master class Tuesday 9th August between 3pm and 5pm in Bendigo. If you want to get into Teacher Training, Jahne goes up there for the master class every 2nd Tuesday. It’s a great opportunity for personal yoga growth. Book your place today.
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 Deb will call you to organise. firstname.lastname@example.org
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 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. 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.
PHOTO and scans – remember that if you have a fuzzy drawing and you photograph it, put it to email, then email it to me and I print it – it is going to be almost unrecognisable! Post it.
YOGA CLASSES (from 1st August)
Classes held at the Bentinck HOME OF THE AUSTRALASIAN YOGA INSTITUTE. Cost: $10 per person per class (or $100 a 11 class pass: non–transferable).
Monday: 6.30 Hatha with Jahne
Tuesday: 10am RESTORATIVE with Jahne and 7.30 Hatha with Nick
Wednesday: 12.30 Hatha, 6.30 Hatha with Jahne
Friday: 7.30 Hatha with Jahne,
Saturday: 10am Hatha …and 12.30 RESTORATIVE with Jahne.
Sunday: 4.30 Restorative 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.

NEXT TEACHER TRAINING CLASS –
The next will be on Sunday 7th August, 2pm to 4pm (followed by restorative yoga at 4.30) 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 – “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 ).
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

FABULOUS KiTCHARI (or as the british say “Kedgeree”)
Kitchari made in the slow cooker is GORGEOUS. It is thick and creamy and sweet tasting, and I love it. A word that comes to mind is orgasmic… really.
HOW TO: 5 cups of water, a couple of handfuls of rice or grain, lentils and some mung beans… – even a mix using grain leftovers. A big red onion, some chopped mixed vegetables, some pre cooked (or not) Indian Spices, fresh ginger, 2 tablespoons coconut oil, salt, and anything else you think would be good. Put on slow, and cook until it becomes thick and creamy. Serve in a bowl with a dollop of yoghurt or sour cream and a gloop of sweet chilli sauce. As I said. Orgasmic.
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…..
