Yoga Bananas Graduate

A highly creative Advanced Children's Yoga Training Course using the Yoga Bananas® Technique.

This pioneering course offers an intelligent, practical and highly creative approach to teaching children's yoga. Suitable for those who have practised yoga for a minimum of 40 hours and who are looking for a rewarding career. Includes 3 days of training and a 50,000k word illustrated manual. You will be required to complete some self-supervision work prior to the course. This training is taught one-to-one.

​Day One - 9.30am - 7.30pm:

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

Lunch: Supplied

Hours: All 10.5 contact hours are taught by Skip Oliver.

 

Working through Structure One of the tried and tested Yoga Bananas® Technique - This is a full-on demonstration day in which you will be expected to be fully immersed. The day includes original storytelling and rhythm and rhyme to yoga movement because where there's an action there's a story. On this day you will begin to understand how movement and physicality play a role in helping children understand and take control of their mind's narrative.

 

Be prepared to connect with your inner child as you learn breath awareness, postural alignment, dynamic empathy exercises, controlled transitions, the power of respect, songs, chants, visualisations, classroom management and much, much more, and always through creative techniques that spark the imagination. The Technique not only builds children's confidence but by the very nature of yoga and its roots within the sacred Vedic tradition offers children the opportunity to explore their intuitive nature and spirituality.

 

Homework will be set on this day so it is important that nothing is planned for the evening. 

​Day Two - 9.30am - 7.30pm:

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

Lunch: Supplied

Hours: 10.5 contact hours are taught by Skip Oliver.

Practical Assessment Day and Working through Structure Two of the Yoga Bananas® Technique - On this day you will teach a whole Structure One  class and receive constructive feedback from Skip. This is a fantastic learning environment as you absorb more and more of the Technique with your participation in each practical assessment. Following this, Skip will demonstrate her Storyos™ - original and epic stories narrated through asana. On this day you will also learn other Alternative Class Structures that are a total departure from Structure One and Structure Two to further expand your repertoire. Following this, Skip will demonstrate any remaining cameo techniques.

 

Homework will be a written test of 20 questions to be completed within 2 weeks of completing the course. 

 

Please note you will be expected to spend a minimum of 12 hours on self-supervision work. Once you have booked, Skip will send you details of this. 

Next Course Date: 12-13 August 2023
