A rewarding and vocational 3 day Children's Yoga Teacher Training Course for those looking for a life-long career choice. This course is for anyone who has been attending yoga classes for 40 hours or two years.

Includes a 50,000 word training manual, written by Skip Oliver.
Established since 1998, the Yoga Bananas® Technique™ is a unique Children's Yoga and Mindfulness Teacher Training Course in which movement and physicality of the body play a predominant role in helping children understand and take control of their mind's narrative. The technique not only builds children's confidence but by the very nature of yoga and its roots within the sacred Vedic tradition also offers a child the opportunity to explore their intuitive nature and spirituality.
The course is run by founder Skip Oliver, Dip Physical Theatre, BA Hons English, MA Creative Writing and yoga teacher and trainer since 1998 and former artistic director of London StorySLAM:Live and with her equally enthusiastic teammate, Yoga Bananas illustrator, Andrew Lawrence.
Skip has been analysing the connection between the mind and body since she was a teenager and competitive athlete. From her twenty-year teaching experience as a yoga therapist for children and adults (SYT, ERYT, Yoga Elder), she has discovered that the layers of the mind always speak through the physical body. Out of this understanding and through an exploration of yoga techniques and energy work, Skip has devised an exciting and inspirational approach to working with children to help them fulfil their unique potential and develop into caring, sharing individuals. Qualities that a capitalist world do not support.
The Yoga Bananas® Children's Yoga Teacher Training Course is for those who would like to train as a teacher in yoga and meditation to creatively work with children to help them live a meaningful life. It includes over 170 original techniques and unique class structures to enhance the well-being of both mentor and child. The pre-requisite is that you have been attending yoga classes and self-practising for 40 hours. The Yoga Bananas® Technique™ can be used in schools and within a yoga studio by anyone who would like to or who already works with children. The techniques can also be used at home by the whole family (also see 'Rumpus Routines' - a book especially written for parents).
