I keep on bringing this to your attention…The GREAT BELL CHANT, by Thitch Nat Hahn.  Pay particular attention to his walking meditation. That is how I would like you all to practice.  Looks easy – but notice he is doing it on a busy sidewalk.



A lot of people don’t like raking leaves, but I do.  Firstly it keeps me fit, and secondly, it gives me a good space to think. (and third I have a fabulous source of free mulch).    Some people think in the shower, and yes,  I do that too – but that is mostly thinking about the past…  Raking leaves tends to drive me towards thinking of the future.  What comes next.  There are a few things coming up.

  • There is the MASTERCLASS IN SHEPPARTON. At the Carrington Hotel between 2pm and 4pm.  We will be talking about THE YOGA OF HEMP –  in particular the role of the endocannabinoid system and hypermobility.  You may not think this has anything to do with yoga, but if you are teaching in a therapeutic rather than a fitness method, you will understand how important these considerations are.
  • Tarot – this is my relaxation, and a”gift” since childhood. I love the tarot – People have said “how can I take you seriously if you do tarot?”  Please Note:  Everything I do is yoga.  We can do the tarot in a yoga way, and I do.  The yamas go with me wherever I am, whatever I am doing.   I have loaded additions to my tarot deck on ETSY. I don’t just draw the deck, I channel them – meditation is crucial.  The book you have asked for has also been loaded onto etsy… you can have a hard copy posted to you, or download.  Up to you. You could also come for a reading – something not available to my overseas members, although I have had people come to me from the States.  Don’t forget the FREE TAROT COURSE on the videos.
  • FINE ART AMERICA This is a wonderful site and I have started to load my images there. FAA take those images and frame them or put them on bags, ipad covers, everything you can think of.  I have started to load the tarot images, and I have also put THE AUSTRALASIAN YOGA INSTITUTE LOGO onto this site, and you can access it to purchase books, diaries – if you can think of it, they have it there with our logo on it..  Just google it.



I love anything hands-on, and now I have the hemp, I will be using the creams and balms in my massage consultations.  I know how they have worked with me, and I know they will work with you.

DON’T FORGET THE MASSAGE COURSE COMING UP IN JULY.  Look under “MASSAGE” above.  When you get through you can be insured and work professionally.

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.

Please include THE YOGA OF HEMP on your schedule – it is relevant to yoga.

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”.  There is everything you need to start your study. Don’t go to google first and then give up and go to our materials.  We have done the hard work for you – use it.


There is the YOGA OF HEMP now on ETSY  and how it can help your students who are demonstrating Hypermobility no matter where in the body it occurs.



The “strawberries and cream” of yoga.

More Restorative (Remedial) classes.  Look at the web site for dates and times. I am building and building on this… It is what passionately interests me as it links with hypermobility and now, HEMP.




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.   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.  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 aidcertificate with your application and CPE when necessary (see below)

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.

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.




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.
