What's not to love?!
Established in 2004, we are the UK's longest-running children's yoga company offering a unique multi-sensory and creative yoga concept for children aged 0-16. We have four accredited, respected and medically backed training programmes that are fully aligned with national curriculum and with dedicated SEN training. Our ethical aims have a positive social and environmental impact at the core. We are very, very good at what we do and have awards that prove it.
We care deeply about our success. Tatty Bumpkin, Baby Bumpkin, Tatty Guroo and Yoga Guroo are iconic yoga-inspired, wellness programmes for children that parents and educationalists trust in us to deliver like no other, and we expect the same from you. Extensive sector experience, the ability to do yoga, or business management is not an upfront requirement for owning a CIbY franchise. We will help you receive much of the training.
We do expect our franchisees to have an open heart and mind, are genuinely devoted to our brand and their communities, are business savvy, and possess a limitless amount of energy and determination.

Have an entrepreneurial spirit
Have an accentuated drive for success

Sense of fun
Ideal personality traits include
Desire to be altruistic
High energy and drive
Focused on results
People who share our enthusiasm and genuinely care about the positive impact that our programmes have on people's lives is what we look for above all. We expect you to have a genuine commitment to giving your best to the children you work with, & ambition to succeed, & resilience to tackle the ups & downs of business. Good interpersonal skills are important as well as the willingness to expand your business through building teaching team.
You do need to be willing to step up and take full responsibility for every aspect of running your franchise and making sure it grows into a viable business, one that is 1. Saleable - you are creating an asset 2. Scalable - you use teachers to grow your franchise 3. Flexible - with the use of teachers, you can earn money when you are not there.
Ideally you have good IT skills (or the willingness to learn them) for our booking systems and online marketing, & to keep good records of your sales, enquiries and accounts.
It is necessary to have a stable financial history that demonstrates you can manage your own finances, especially if you plan to approach banks to help you with your investment. CIbY Franchise has already shown to several banks that it is a safe investment, but they will need to see that you are too.
