MASSAGE PRACTICAL EXAM: Happened yesterday.  It was a wonderful afternoon.  Thank you to the volunteer models, they not only enjoyed the massages, but they were able to give us constructive information and advice.  The students were fantastic.  They turned up early, well prepared, relaxed, and remembered that the massage starts BEFORE the clients hops on the massage table.    Congratulations, you passed!

As it was the last class for the year,  before heading home we shared a celebratory champers and nibbles (both savoury and sinful).  As I said, a very successful day and very, very enjoyable to everyone.   A good intro to our next class in the new year.  If you are interested, please let me know.  Email me.



1.30pm Thermomix demo, 2pm to 4pm the usual teacher training.

This Sunday is special, we are starting at 1.30pm (if you are interested) with a demonstration by thermomix.  Now I don’t have one, BUT, if you are interested in grinding grains to make your own flour, harissa, and crumbles etc. then that is what we will be learning, plus we will be shown how to make fabulous juices and smoothies.

I know there are many other ways to do this, but I am assured that thermomix is better and faster.   Whether that is so or not, you will learn how to deal with ancient grains, and maybe you could package some up for friends at Christmas.

(Talking about cooking.  If you are old enough to have referenced “Mrs.Beeton” who was a very famous cook from the past, you might like to know that in spite of publishing the very first mass marketed cookbooks, she only designed ONE original recipe which was for a soup for recovering invalids!  She was actually a researcher and editor of historical recipes….Who knew?) 



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.


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.


YOUR REGISTRATIONS:  Archiving will only occur if we have not heard from you, if you have not contacted us in a long while and if there has been no reply when we try to contact you – I found a student whilst we were working on the files,  who has not contacted us since 2009!!! WE ARE ARCHIVING, and we are deleting and boxing up old files – we are not a bank, and we are not a “crypt” and don’t have the space…. Make sure we don’t archive you –  contact us today please.  If you have already been archived it will cost $250 to start you up again PLUS your videos.

This is a course that you can take a very long time to finish – but not from a position of total silence.  If you are not there, we will believe “you are not there”.


MASSAGE/HYPNO MASSAGE:  This is a great time of the year for massages.  You have time on your hands, and I will have a couple of weeks yoga free.  Get in early with bookings.


PAST LIFE CONSULTATIONS:  I have started to load videos on the YouTube channel.  Go to “Jahne Hope-Williams YouTube”.  Of course I have done some fascinating sessions since we last newslettered.  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.   I will let you know when the booklet on MY PAST LIVES is complete.



CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS ARE COMING.  AT THIS STAGE SATURDAY 21ST DECEMBER IS OUR LAST CLASS FOR THE YEAR.       There will be changes in times in the new year.  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.


UNITING CHURCH CLASSES:  Next door to the Police Station, Forest Road, Woodend.

Monday: 12noon FREE lunch. YES, WE WILL BE HAVING A FREE CHRISTMAS LUNCH.   The 1pm yoga is  held at the Studio in Woodend, not at the Church.  The electrical system at the church ceased to function and although it was repaired, still doesn’t work.  My students have just become used to doing yoga at the Studio – we will see what the year brings.


MONTHLY TEACHER TRAINING AT THE HOME STUDIO:   DATE of the next Teacher Training – OUR CHRISTMAS SPECIAL:   Sunday 1st December 1.30pm to 4pm  at my home studio (37 Morris Road in Woodend.    We are having Catherine (Catherine Day – our local “Mrs.Thermomix”) come and demonstrate Christmas goodies… from 1.30.  I still want to do training, and it is our last for this year. So you can come at 1.30 or 2pm and we will finish at 4 as usual.

There is no need to book. Bring writing materials for our teacher training, and be early. If you are a Yoga 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 classes The Next class is 10th December at 3.30pm. Crusoeden Health.  Turn at the Metricon building on the highway in Kangaroo Flat just up from Bunnings on the same side.


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! 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.

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.




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…….
