THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:  No prose or poetry today – just a remind about FRIDAYS LUNCH.  The 18th October (this Friday) at the Mt.Macedon Hotel at 12 noon.  All welcome.  Last time we had 10 persons, with two “token males” – much appreciated.  


YOUR MODULES: Thank goodness –  I am having some help starting in the office in the next week or so.  Our first job?  We will be culling files as I have been telling you – so, if you haven’t registered, if you are way behind in modules, be warned, we are going to archive you. I love doing what I do, I love teaching – but it is hard to justify keeping folk on file who just don’t respond, or who promise to get going time after time, but do nothing.   It will cost $250 to get started again.  Thank you to those girls who have already got back on track – even after a long absence in some cases.



You  will learn how to incorporate this into other massages for instance THE INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE, Gua Sha (provided you understand meridians), using hot stones and more.   Go to for sign up details.  The next course will start on 22nd October.

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.

My comfy, cosy 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 our yoga classes)  $125. It is rare that the class is only one hour.  Unless you are in a hurry then we can adapt.  I take my cue from my acupuncturist Peter Gigante – my sessions with him can last much more than the specified time.  It always makes me feel better knowing he is not hurried – even if there is a client waiting.  I know how he works, so when I go I am patient when there is a client taking his time.



All on the Web Site.  Go to  for classes.  Our classes are sooo terrific.  They are such fun, so much family – and those who are coming (or coming back) to Restorative, are just changing before my eyes.  Getting stronger, calmer, more flexible. .  Thank you girls.  I am loving the classes all over again.


Yoga $20 per Class Or  CLASS PASS – $135 per 10 CONSECUTIVE classes (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 3rd November 2pm to 4pm  at my home studio (37 Morris Road in Woodend. TThere 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).


CHRISTMAS:  At the next class I will have some Paul Gilley DVD’s at cost price ($35), I have my Tarot boxed deck which will be at a special price $50 instead of $62.50 plus postage)., and even if you can’t come to the studio, I will start taking orders for MASSAGE GIFT CERTIFICATES at a Christmas Special price $75 (school holiday price).  So peoples – bring your credit cards.

CBD (as reviewed in Australian Yoga Journal – no THC in this variety).  I do have some for my students.  The law of course requires me to remind you that in Australia this is not for human consumption.  Dogs in pain seem to respond beautifully to a drop or two on their food.  SATIVA ESSENCES – for humans –  these are to boost strength and energy and TYOH OIL also for topical application,  is a combination of oils (some very expensive and very rare), which we recommend for pain and muscle aches.  Also for lack of energy or mild depression.  Only a drop or two is needed.

BENDIGO Teacher Training classes The Next class is the 5th November at 3.30pm. Crusoeden Health.  Turn at the Metricon building on the highway in Kangaroo Flat just up from Bunnings on the same side.



It is always a fantastic group and a great day.    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 (SEASONS 5 –  Pt.Cook) MASTER CLASS.  I have been asked to conduct a Restorative/Hypermobility Master Class in Werribee.  This will be held on Sunday the 20th October,which is the soonest we could get our diaries to align… such is life.     It looks a splendid venue, and I am looking forward to experiencing teaching there for the first time.


PARKING HOME STUDIO – 37 Morris Road, Woodend. 

If you come to my home studio for yoga or massage – Please, Please – Park on white gravel in front of the studio.  I had it made especially so that it would be easier for you! If there is no room, then park in the drive-way directly opposite in front of double grey garage rolladoors. Not in front of neighbours driveways please.



I write books to help you. What will you find on ETSY?  YAMAS, CHAKRAS, HYPERMOBILITY, THE FIVE TIBETANS AND TEMPLATES and more.  There are lots of books there to help you in your progress with yoga.


HYPERMOBILITY (the course)

The new course is on the ETSY site.

Watch my FREE UTUBE CHANNEL.  It is amazing how Hypermobility and the endocannabinoid system fit together.  Please watch the youtube channel, or get the hew books on ETSY.



THIS IS IMPORTANT.    We are your lineage.  You can pretend, you can take cheaper options, you can use all kinds of rationalization BUT WE ARE YOUR LINEAGE, your yoga family.  No-one else can be.    Sometimes….People who can’t spend the time or the money and want to be yoga teachers do it through us, then when they have graduated do a quickie class in India, and Bingo!!!, suddenly believe they have been personally blessed by Buddha.   I know they are kidding themselves, but guys, we aren’t in India, but we are still your linage, and mine (which I pass on to you) goes way back.  Don’t forget, even Ramacharaka who wrote “The Science of The Breath”, was not Indian.  He was a lawyer from the USA.

PLEASE, PLEASE CHECK YOUR REGISTRATION.  You need to be currently registered AT THE LEVEL AT WHICH YOU ARE NOW – STUDENT OR GRADUATE for your insurance to be valid, and you will need to supply a copy of a valid registration to be insured with AON.  If you insure as a graduate when you are still a student it may cause problems if there ever was a claim – it is possible you may not be insured because you didn’t tell the truth about your qualification.    You also need to forward a current first aid certificate with your application and CPE when necessary.

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.


Being part of your school, of your lineage, gives you Power, Authority, Freedom


CPE:  To bring us in line with INTERNATIONAL requirements rather than just Australian, we will only be requiring you to do your CPE every 3 years, do it round about the same time you do your first aid which is also a 3 year requirement.



Those students who are doing massage with me will get a certificate which they can pass through to AON to get insurance…. In order to graduate, you will need to fill in all the required documentation.  If you don’t do this,  then sorry, you will not graduate.  There will be no exceptions to this rule.




I write books to help you in your course.  Please download them, and then please use them in answering your modules. HYPERMOBILITY – The Course…. A certificate course.  If you teach yoga, you need this.  No excuses.



MODULE DRAWINGS, DOWNLOADS.  You will notice on the bottom of every assessment there is a reminder that drawings need to be done, and in your own hand, and downloads of any kind will not be marked.  Every page needs to have your name, module number, and page number.


EMAIL/POST:  Please use the email address  for anything to do with accounts,  or the usual to get to me.  If you do want to speak to me personally, then email, make a time suitable for both of us, and then we can chat.  If you do it this way, rather than just “wing it”, you can be reasonably sure I have time, and you will get my attention.  POSTAL ADDRESS is not at my home –Please address all land mail to PO Box 14, Mt.Macedon.  Vic. 3441.  Until you see a change written here in large letters, that is where it will be.


Don’t forget to Register if you are teaching even if you have not graduated (especially if you have not graduated), insure and re-subscribe to the videos every 12 months.   Don’t leave these to the last minute.


Love and Blessings   Jahne…….
