TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE OF THE YOGA BANANAS MATERIAL

(Demonstrated, Written, Illustrated)

Yoga Bananas® -

YOGA BANANAS™ was founded in 1999. It is one of the pioneers of children's yoga in this country and has trained over 750 people in small groups from across the globe. Yoga Bananas™ offers a unique way of looking at yoga postures, it will open your eyes to the marriage of narrative and movement and the absorbing effects of rhythm and rhyme. We work on trust and we do not license or franchise, but we do ask that you credit Yoga Bananas™ as your inspiration / seed of creation and follow the terms set out below, for we sit comfortable in the knowledge that we offer one of the most creative children's courses in the world. It has been a 14 year dedicated process, which has absorbed both the illustrator and the creator, sometimes to the detriment of their family. We have never stepped on anyone to get ahead in business and we have never used anyone's creation or idea (and even if we did we would get permission and give credit). Obviously there is some classic yoga stuff incorporated into the training and we do not in any way claim these elements to be of our making. We offer a printed pedagogy and mythology that sometimes overflows into discussion and demonstration. For a simple example: there are 180 poses in the Yoga Bananas™ Illustration Manual, 'Pebble' could easily become 'Rock' or 'Seashell', Yoga Bananas™ has offered the 'Pebble' as the documented illustrated thought, and discusses its variations. Yoga Bananas™ are aware that there are infinite words that say the same thing in the English Language; we don't list them all, instead we verbalise this natural leap and give our students credit for being intelligent enough to see the comparison. We offer the spring from which the river can flow (and so much more). 

Please read these Terms and Conditions of Use (Terms) carefully - Anyone signing up to or purchasing any Yoga Bananas™ Material does so under this agreement. This agreement is non-negotiable.
