A CREATIVE
FRANCHISE COMMUNITY

Our story

How it works

We are different, 

in a relevant way. 

True collaboration

Established in 2004, we are the UK’s longest-running children’s 
yoga company.

 

We offer a unique multi-sensory and creative yoga-inspired children's activity class for children aged 0-11 across 3 programmes.

 

As a franchisee you will receive everything you need to run sessions within your own geographical territory, using self-employed teachers to really scale your business & establish true freedom - earning whilst you are not even there!

 

Baby Bumpkin 0-2 years

Tatty Bumpkin 3-7 years

Tatty Guroo 8-11 years.

Each programme has full supporting documentation aimed at

CHILDREN

PARENTS

EDUCATORS

which means our sessions can be run specifically as parent/child, or in educational settings. 

We love creativity, & we love to create, so there is a lot of emphasis on the quality of the programme materials.

IN 2008 we moved to franchising to become more of a community - a group of like-minded (women, although it doesn't have to be!) who want to work for themselves but not by themselves.

It really is simple.

How we are different – we are bendy, giggly, clever, and strong.

BENDY

Ours is a flexible business model to suit your needs but within a structure that works.

GIGGLY

The number one reason people work with us is to have a more meaningful, creative & fun career.

CLEVER

We guide & support you in running your business.

STRONG

We are a community - although you work for yourself, you are not by yourself.

We are ethical with a focus on making a positive social impact in the communities that embrace us.

We operate under a model of sustainability for personal, emotional, social, and physical well-being.

We take a holistic view of the long-term to bring a return on investment to you and your community.

We are the UK’s longest-running children’s yoga company and are very, very good at what we do (& have awards that prove it.)

We have been franchising since 2007, & are skilled at guiding you from the very first enquiry, to help you decide if this will be a good match for us both. We help you with research & business planning so as well as buying with your heart, you can make an informed business decision.

Dont worry, most of our network have never run a business before but relish the opportunity to own their own working life.

A key difference with the franchise model is that there is a network of like-minded people doing the same thing - but not in competition. This means you are working for yourself, but not by yourself.

 

All the tools and advice you need are available. Unlike being a sole trader or teacher, we provide all the artwork, content, advice, and know-how you need to be successful. 

 

There are no guarantees, but studies show that franchises have a success rate of approximately 90 percent as compared to only about 15 percent for businesses that are started from the ground up.
