I only want one thing for Christmas.  I would like everyone who has borrowed a book or a DVD –  TO GET IT BACK TO ME.  Address.  PO Box 14, Mt.Macedon.  Vic. 3441.



Gift cards are really up-there when it comes to gift giving in the 21st century, and they are a sure-fire winner in our industry. Surveys indicate that 62% of consumers would choose gift card over pretty much anything as a gift, and that most will spend more than the face value of the gift card when they redeem it with you , and also that 85 percent of gift cards are redeemed in the first 60 days after they’re received. It’s a complete no-brainer, that selling the gift cards and promoting them as a perfect Christmas gift will get you new clients and help to boost your yoga or massage center income over the first few months of the new year.

Remember I have PERSONALISED gift cards for the PAST LIFE PROCESS (QHHT) .  If you have a special (hard to buy for) person in your life, then this may be the answer.  There is not much time now to get a boxed gift card to you (they look especially pretty) – but I can wrap and post in a post pack – even express… or I can email and you can print out on lovely paper.   This month (up to the 17th of January) you get two consults for the price of one…how good is that?  Please email if you want to receive a gift card.  You can Direct Debit or send you Card number.

PAST LIFE CONSULTATIONS: During the holidays I will have more time to  do more videos.  There are not enough hours in the day at the present.  I am finishing the book, doing more study into past life therapy, taking photos…. As well as looking after my students.     Please book me early for the past-life consultations, as once the holidays begin people will have more available time and my time will fill up quickly – but as each one takes a minimum of two hours, and I can’t do many in a day (even Edgar Cayce was advised to do only two)  you need to book early.  The sessions take about 2 hours and they cost $250. If you only have an hour to spare, I can do that, but we may have to do a few to get a really good delve into the past.

Prices:  Book a two hour session before the 17th of January and get TWO SESSIONS FOR THE PRICE OF ONE. Or book a one hour session for $150.



YOUR COURSE, YOUR MODULES:  Thank you again to those students who have bounced back into action, who are getting their insurance and registrations up to date (I personally would not work without insurance – it is one of the first things I check).  Thank you also  to those students who have started up their course again after a long absence, BUT, if your absence has been 5 years or more, and you did little when you first enrolled, then you will have to start the modules at the beginning….   But it is good to start – it is even better to finish.  Another thing you can cross off the list.


MASSAGE: When I was about 40 (I think) I did some courses to learn how to incorporate a knowledge of the skin with my massages.  I have always found this valuable.  Never more than now when so many of my clients are slathering on coconut oil, believing it is a magic potion for all skin conditions.  Taken internally it is magical, but it is ageing and drying especially on a mature skin.  Keep this in mind.  It is important that you give the correct advice.  Slip, slop, slap.  But with the right stuff.  Remember how your grandma would put butter on a bruise?  It did nothing but it made you feel like something had been done.  Coconut oil on mature skin is just like that.



CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS ARE COMING.  AT THIS STAGE SATURDAY 21ST DECEMBER IS OUR LAST CLASS FOR THE YEAR. PLEASE GO TO THE WEB SITE FOR DATES AND TIMES.  THERE ARE CHANGES.   I am just going with the flow at present, but there are a few classes that are historically unpopular, these could be cancelled….  I may also change the cost.  I will have to work with the accountant on this and find out how much the classes are costing me before I can decide.

All on the Web Site.  Go to  for classes.

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.

PARKING HOME STUDIO 37 Morris Road, Woodend.     If you come to my home studio for yoga or massage or anything – Please, Please – Park on white gravel in front of the studio.  I had it made especially so that it would be easier for you!

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.


MY PAST LIVES – the book will be released over the next month or so – I will probably do the tidying up of the manuscript over the holidays..  This may help you to understand my journey, and anticipate one of your own.  It is interesting that more people are coming from the future in these sessions than from the past…they have come to heal and to teach.


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.


Why Register with THE AUSTRALASIAN YOGA INSTITUTE? Have you forgotten to re-register.  This will effect your insurance status.   THIS IS IMPORTANT.

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

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.

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.


MASSAGE COURSE:  There will be another in the new year.  I will be really strict with this one.  You will get a certain amount of time, and if you don’t finish in the time, then you will forfeit.  It is how most classes work, and I have allowed my students to lapse.  I won’t in future – it is too hard to keep track of where everyone is at, and the students don’t take the course seriously.  I am busy getting accreditations, working on courses, making it better and when students are “casual” about coming to class or submitting modules it makes me query what I am doing.  If you don’t think your life is serious, your course is serious… how can you succeed?


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…….
