Along with business training, we offer three main accredited courses to support and build your Children Inspired by Yoga business. Our courses uniquely combine founding yoga principals with key aspects of child development.
Business Planning and Finance
We will work with you to develop a robust business plan which supports profitability and can help raise additional funding through our partnerships with major banks like NatWest and HSBC.
Receive training on every aspect of running a franchise business, this includes teacher recruitment and management, enquiries and bookings, sales and marketing, and comprehensive instructions on how to set up your new business and make it work for you.
We will give you access and training to our internal operating systems. This includes The Hub, our one-stop-shop for running your business as well as our artwork site, online training portal & website editing. Running a franchise will give you more insights into running a business than a Business Studies degree! You do need to be interested in these areas too.
