Timetable and Logistics of Yoga Bananas TTC

The Yoga Alliance Approved Course has been designed to embrace anyone who works or lives with children who has a solid two-year yoga practice. The course has been extensively developed over the last 21 years by its founder, Skip Oliver, and is unique in its approach to teaching children's yoga.​

​Day One - 9.00am - 7.30pm:

Location: Forest Green Village Hall, Horsham Road, Forest Green, Dorking, Surrey Hills, RH5 5RZ

Working through Structure One of the Yoga Bananas® Technique. This is a full-on practical, creative teaching day. Everything that Skip demonstrates is backed up verbatim in a 45,000 word manual so you always have a written reference. This day includes Skip teaching a 1 hour class often with a child or two in attendance. Homework will be set on this day so it is important that nothing is planned for the evening. Some the topics covered will include behaviour management and keeping the children and school safe, lots of emphasis on breath awareness and the power of present moment awareness, postural alignment, dynamic warm-ups, creating a respectful tone, a myriad of storytelling, rhythm and rhyme to movement, eye health, the power of focus and controlled transitioning, mantras, blessings and songs and of course relaxation techniques and much more. Please bring a yoga mat, healthy, light snacks, a bottle of water and pen and paper. A vegetarian lunch is suppled. Warm clothes should be worn in the cooler months as this is an old hall. All 10.5 contact hours are taught by Skip.

Day Two: 9.00am - 8.30pm: 

Location: Forest Green Village Hall, Horsham Road, Forest Green, Dorking, Surrey Hills, RH5 5RZ

Working through Structure Two of the Yoga Bananas®Technique  and students teach a Yoga Bananas® Technique class to the group. Another full-on practical, creative teaching day with plenty of feedback on how to improve your teaching from Skip. A child or two may be in attendance on this day too as this always helps students to feel at ease. Homework will be set on this day so it is important that nothing is planned for the evening. The main topics covered will be alternative class structures and Storyos™ - Yoga Bananas' epic stories narrated through the spoken word and body. Please bring a yoga mat, healthy, light snacks, a bottle of water and pen and paper. A vegetarian lunch is suppled. Warm clothes should be worn in the cooler months as this is an old hall. 8.5 contact hours are taught by Skip and 2 contact hours of Anatomy and Physiology are taught by Ben East with Skip Oliver.
