Please transfer all your account queries to Jacky at    If you want a direct answer from me, then as usual,      All mail to go to PO Box 14, Mt.Macedon. Vic. 3441.



THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:  Success is in direct proportion to your commitment to excellence and your love of what you do, regardless of your chosen field of endeavour.


ATTENTION PLEASE!!!!  YOUR MODULES:  There are a few of you who hopefully will be reading this who have neither contacted us, or sent modules for a very long time.  If I have not heard from you for more than a year (yes, it can be that long) I will close your file.  This is a school, not a hobby.  We keep reminding you that if you don’t keep in contact us, and have not replied to our attempts to contact you,  then you will be considered to have withdrawn…so, I am going to go through the files, cull them on the basis of your last contact, and if you want to re-instate there will be a $250 charge to get you back on track, and out of the archive.  This is serious.  Your insurance could be at risk.


SCHOOL HOLIDAYS:  Don’t forget. The first class of the next term will be Saturday the 5th October.   During the holidays I will be taking Massage clients (This is your opportunity to make an appointment to see me.  Email, but I will not be doing yoga classes until Sat 5th.



Quite a complex class.  We will also 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.

The 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.  Starts again on the 5th October.

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.


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 6th October 2pm to 4pm  at my home studio (37 Morris Road in Woodend.  SUBJECT: DEATH AND AFTER.  This will be a wonderful exploration. 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 classesThere is a class tomorrow  the 3rd September, then the Next class is the 8th October at 3.30pm. Crusoeden Health.  Turn at the Metricon building on the highway in Kangaroo Flat just up from Bunnings on the same side.



The yoga “Ladies(?) who Lunch” last time attracted two guys.  It went well, and added something to the group of really strong women. It was a  great day, and was everything I hoped it would be.  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 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.

PARKING HOME STUDIO – 37 Morris Road, Woodend. 

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?  CBD, 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 the massage course with me will get a certificate which they can pass through to AON to get insurance….   NB:  If you have done our yoga courses and are also a masseur, you can get certification from us, and insurance through AON.



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…….
