The Yoga Bananas 3 - 11 Year Training Course aims to offer parents, yoga teachers and school teachers an informed, practical and personal approach to teaching primary school yoga. The programme follows a universal ethos, equipping you with the tools to create, inspire and cherish all the children that you teach and bringing about an awareness of your own gifts, strengths and potentialities.
The Teen YB Training Course aims to equip yoga teachers and school teachers with the tools to empower teens helping them with self-identification and offer them stability. Teen YB reinforces the importance of a healthy lifestyle and awareness of the body and the mind so that teenagers can draw upon the lessons they have learnt on their mat to help them deal with the stresses and strains of developing into an adult.
'I had the pleasure of participating in the Yoga Bananas Training Course and it was hands-down the most enjoyable, informative, and thorough three day workshop I could have ever imagined. Skippy embodies all that yoga should be with an understanding heart and generous spirit.'
