SCHOOL HOLIDAYS:  Don’t forget. Our last class for this term is 10am and 12.30 restorative on the 21stSeptember.  The first class of the next term will be Saturday the 5th October.

 During the holidays I will be taking Massage clients (This is your opportunity to make an appointment to see me. Email, but I will not be doing yoga classes.


GRADUATE DIPLOMA MASSAGE CLASS: The students have asked for this class to be extended – they want to know more!  What a wonderful request.

At the present time, This course includes a 4week practical class (every Tuesday between 7pm and 9pm) with home study.  It will encompass PPT, and all we know to date about the endocannabinoid system,  the CerebroSpinalFluid and hypermobility and how this effects our massage.  Quite a complex class.  We will also learn how to incorporate this into other massages for instance THE INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE.

Go to www.pptmassage.comfor sign up details.  The next course will start in October/November.


MASSAGE CONSULTATIONS:   If you would like to book a massage, and Indian Head Massage/PPT, Reiki/PPT I can adapt to what you need and want. Call me.  We can explore PPT massage, EFT, and a more traditional relaxation massage with oil. The choice is up to you.  The room is dedicated to massage and a shower etc available if you need that before you back to work.  Cost for one hour: Yoga Students $85, non-members (those who don’t attend class)  $125



All on the Web Site.  Go to for classes.

Our classes are sooo terrific.  They are such fun, so much family. Thank you girls.  I am loving them all over again.

Spring is on the way – in fact is here some days in the week.  You can come to class and get home in the light – although everything comes with challenges.  At this time of the year it is kangaroos.  If you remember even I am not immune.  My Little grey Mazda was stomped on (but I didn’t miss a class in spite of no car!)


COST: Yoga $20 per Class Or  CLASS PASS – $135 per 10 CONSECUTIVEclasses (students of the studio for 3 years or more).   New students: $165 per 10 class pass (normally $200) After 3 years as a student, the cheaper rate will apply.


UNITING CHURCH CLASSES     Next door to the Police Station, Forest Road, Woodend.

Monday:12noon FREE lunch.  The 1pm yoga will be held at the Studio in Woodend, not at the Church.  The electrical system at the church ceased to function a week or so back, and although it was repaired, still doesn’t work. I don’t like doing yoga in -5 degrees, and I think my students are more discerning (sensible) too.



DATE of the next Teacher Training:   Sunday 6thOctober 2pm to 4pm  at my home studio (37 Morris Road in Woodend.  SUBJECT: DEATH AND AFTER.  This will be a wonderful exploration. There is no need to book. Bring writing materials,and be early. If you are teacher Training student then the cost of the afternoon is $20.  This fee applies to everyone. (Visitors are welcome – even those not yet in teacher training – $30).


BENDIGO Teacher Training classesThe Next class is the 8thOctober at 3.30pm. Crusoeden Health.  Turn at the Metricon building on the highway in Kangaroo Flat just up from Bunnings on the same side.


MOUNT MACEDON MONTHLY GET-TOGETHER:    The yoga “ladies(?) who lunch” this time attracted two guys.  They were wonderful, and added something to the group of really strong women. It was a fantastic group an great day, and was everything I hoped it would be.  Joyous. It will happen again on the Friday 18th October (diarise now)at The Mount Macedon Hotel at 12noon. (Please note, no children or grandchildren please – this is not that sort of lunch). Please make time to come.  It is a lovely venue, the view is terrific, and the food is terrific thanks to a new and inspired chef.  I look forward to meeting you there.


NEW SHEPPARTON MASTERCLASS.  Date not decided, I am waiting for the students to get together for a class.  On-line seems to be OK at the present.

WERRIBEE MASTER CLASS.  I have been asked to conduct a Restorative/Hypermobility Master Class in Werribee.  This will be held on Sunday the 20thOctober,which is the soonest we could get our diaries to align… such is life.

PARKING HOME STUDIO – 37 Morris Road, Woodend.     Please, Please – Park on white gravel in front of the studio.  I had it made especially so that it would be easier for you!

Please check your insurance requirements – keep up to date. We have moved to AON insurance.  You will be able to insure on-line BUT you will need a current (student or graduate) Registration to prove you are a member with us to get the advantages that a big firm like AON can offer.
