Please, if you have not played this video (address below), do.  It is a beautiful, beautiful video and GREAT BELL CHANT.  Not long, but worth taking the time.  I have had great feedback from students – if you have not yet taken the time to listen to this take the time out of your day to do it, it isn’t long.  I am sure you will love it.

Have you checked out our UTUBE channel – it’s free.  Google “Jahne Hope-Williams YouTube” and it will get you there.



Winter is coming and our classes are small, warm, and gentle.  We are still at the Home Studio,  37 Morris Road in Woodend.  Please go to click on “classes”. Our classes (by popular demand) are primarily RESTORATIVE YOGA – it is a quiet, gentle yoga which is perfect if you are infirm, have recently had surgery, or are by nature anxious or maybe depressed, or maybe you just want a gentle stretch.   Come along, join our beautiful small groups and see if this is for you.  The room is comfortable, no bare boards…. Just a warm cocoon to help you relax.  All times are on the web site.



I need to refresh your mind about a beautiful “nature strip” garden prepared, planted and tended by an anonymous householder in our community. You can visit it any time, and pick the vegetables, keeping in mind that they are for everyone, and it is just a nature strip.

While this fills me with happiness (and I do go and pick from time to time), I can take no credit for these things happening. The gardener is a yogi in his soul if not in asana,  who takes his role in our community very seriously.   We could all take a leaf from his book.

To access this wonderful gift, all you have to do is go to 10 Carlisle St, Woodend (next door to The Bentinck).  When you are driving out of town towards Bendigo take the turn to the right immediately after the Romsey Road turnoff.  You will see the fabulous veggie garden on you right.  Stop and help yourself.  As I said, keep in mind that others will come after you.  Cut carefully, and don’t rip plants out by their roots.



Meditation sessions (Yoga Nidra) by donation are on Tuesdays at 11am and Sundays at 9.15am. All classes outside of this time are at my regular one-on-one class charge of $85.  When you have a one-on-one session it will be very much directed towards your needs… this is often not possible at a class/group session.



If any of you would like a tarot reading, or a healing session, then do make an appointment with me – I even work on weekends.  For a booking email:

The REVELATION TAROT is now in its 10thyear on ETSY.  I am at present waiting for scanning and then printing of the extension 13 cards, “Gates and Guardians” and “Natures Oracles”,  Apparently they will be ready on Tuesday, and I have written and bound a lovely booklet to accompany them. 

If you want a work-book encompassing both the original dack, and the new 13, it is on the ETSY site, and ready to go….  There are also ready-to-frame cards.  See them on the You Tube Channel together with our FREE Tarot Course.  Google “Jahne Hope-Williams YouTube” and please subscribe.
