Although I have discontinued regular newsletter (replaced with a daily FREE VIDEO), I thought I would send one out to you at this time because there are a number of changes and additions, and I need to let you know and be sure everyone one of you has the opportunity to read it.


 HYPERMOBILITY (the course)

The new course is on the ETSY site.

Most of you judging by the modules, STILL think that hypermobility is only about people who can over extend their bodies, the flexible – the is not the case.  hypermobility is a flag, a sign which tells us that a person has a collagen mutation.  Passed down from female to female (mostly), more female have it than males, and it is even more prevalent in African American peoples. This is a huge subject and researchers are only now coming to grips with it. You could lead in the field.   Choose to learn more. I have given you a rest, but now I am nipping at your heels once again.

Watch my FREE UTUBE CHANNEL. Hypermobility, Purushatras, and so on. There is lots there – do one video per day.. Google “Jahne Hope-Williams You Tube”.


YOGA AT THE STUDIO and the Church

We are expanding and I am looking for VOLUNTEER teachers who can help us expand even further. On top of what we are already doing…..classes are starting at Riddells Creek Church 11am on the 8th January…



We had bumper size food hampers which we gave out on Christmas Day. If you know anyone local who needs a help, let me know. You can come and pick up a box of food from me and deliver it.   We are even helping to support a small school for autistic children in Niddrie with our food boxes. The school was having to make a choice between teaching aids and food… That is what we are here for. Students, parents. Singles, everyone finding it hard to make ends meet. There are times when any one of us would be helped by a delivery of food from “the free supermarket”.



I am pleased that I have found a balance between the art, the teaching, the admin and the yoga. I even have had time to “cook” and work (and pick the raspberries) in the garden, although I am looking for rain (as is much of Australia). I have new students and they come to me, not because I do fabulous yoga, but I teach REAL yoga = yoga plus philosophy. You can too. especially with the help of our FREE U-TUBE CHANNEL, Google  “Jahne Hope-Williams You Tube”.


RESTORATIVE (REMEDIAL) YOGA. I have given people lots and lots of options to come to Remedial because that is where I am getting the most yoga devotion, the most clients, and the best results.   Later in the year we are going to start “THE FERTILITY POD” – restorative with a different focus… classes and e-learning for women for whom fertility is an issue. This will include yoga, diet, meditation, acupuncture, relaxation etc etc…



This week I collected 30 Wasps in the Wasp traps. Last year a couple of my trees near the pond were covered in wasps – today? One or two. So getting the queens has made a huge difference in my garden. I can now think about bringing back my bees.



EXHIBITION AT MY HOME STUDIO. Thanks to Jacky and her trusty electric drill, I have just made some simple changes in the studio which means that I can easily access the paintings and the books, and exhibit regularly in my yoga/art studio. I will shortly be having an exhibitions of my miniatures made into pendants (they are beautiful), and small angels. These were inspired by my visitations by angels, and the 9/11 vision of the Twin Towers being destroyed and the crowds angels flying upwards. I will never forget it. At that time I made a vow to paint 1,000 angels which I have done (with only ONE left).

ART CLASSES: Will start up again on the 8th January between 7 and 9pm.   All you need is the desire to paint, and the courage to express yourself. No art experience necessary.   All materials will be provided.  By the end of the class you will have a unique image to take home, and frame to put in your own meditation room.




It is about LINEAGE. You trained with us, you are a part of our lineage (or we are a part of yours), Registration supports this. PLEASE, PLEASE CHECK YOUR REGISTRATION. You need to be currently registered for your insurance to be valid, and you will need to supply a copy of a valid registration to be insured.   Please check your insurance requirements – keep up to date. They change quickly.



We have fallen in line with other organisations and ask people who are registered with us and wish to re-register to do at least one short course in the year as a continuing education requirement. You need to keep up. You can do one of my little courses on ETSY, or someone else’s, doesn’t have to be onerous, just something to keep you on your academic toes so to speak. Just watching a DVD won’t be enough unless you actually write a report on what you watched and why you watched it – the outcome – how it changed how you do what you do.



You will find them on our yogabeautiful web site.    Our last classes for the year will be on Saturday 22nd December, and we will re-open on Monday the 7th January. The Church the same.


PARKING HOME STUDIO – 37 Morris Road, Woodend.

PLEASE, PLEASE Park on white gravel in front of the studio. I had the garden made into an attractive parking lot. When it was lawn you didn’t even think about parking on the lawn or the nature strip. Now it is especially for parking, you park blocks away and walk. What is this about? If my park places are full, you can park in the drive-way directly opposite in front of double grey garage rolladoors. Not in front of neighbours driveways please.
