About your trainer, Skip Oliver

Celebrating 21 years, this course continues to be run by founder Skip Oliver, (SYT, ERYT-500, Yoga Elder, Dip Physical Theatre, BA Hons. English, MA Creative Writing) yoga teacher and trainer since 1998 and former artistic director. Skip has personally trained over 1400 people in the Yoga Bananas® Technique.
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 teacher 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.
