THOUGHT FOR THE DAY  When you consider it, being a parent is like doing a 90 minute power yoga routine over a period of at least 20 years!  You discover lots of rough bits, lots of ways to be in the moment, and lots of opportunities to find out heaps about yourself (and your partners in the process) during the process.


YOUR MODULES:  Have the promised help and it is sooo good.   Kate is asking all the right questions.  At present just dealing with the files where no action has happened in a long while – some 6 years and no communication!!!  I am a patient person, BUT,   as I said, if your file comes up wanting and you want to keep going, 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.


MASSAGE CONSULTATIONS: I was at the Mt.Pub the other nite and the owner came up to me (never had a massage), and said, “I hear your massages make people FLOAT” and then let me know who had been reporting back to him (it is a small community).  I didn’t know people felt they were floating, took time in their cars recovering etc etc… before they felt they wanted to drive,  but it is good.  If you would like to book a massage, an 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.  Thank you girls.  I am loving them all over again.

COST:  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.



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 while 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. 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 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.



JOIN US – DIARISE NOW.  FRIDAY THE 15TH NOVEMBER AT 12NOON The Mount Macedon Hotel (Please note, no children or grandchildren please – this is not that sort of lunch, no offence meant). Please make time to come.  It is a lovely venue, the view is terrific, and the new menu 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.  Amazing, Amazing.  We are starting a Teacher Training GROUP down there, so I will be going monthly to facilitate what will become a major teacher training centre.  Please let us know if you would like to learn to be a yoga teacher, and you live down that way.

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.

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.


MASSAGE ALLIANCE   Those students who are doing massage with me will get a certificate which they can pass through to AON to get insurance….



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…….
