Work with us

You don’t need any experience of yoga to join us.

Our team of franchisees come from all sorts of varied backgrounds… 

but they had two things in common…

They had never worked for themselves

They wanted to work flexibly

Get that elusive work-life balance

With a CIBY franchise, you can build your own business to suit your family life. We’ll give you the tools and training you need to run our yoga-inspired classes yourself.

“Tatty Bumpkin affords me the flexibility to be a ‘mumpreneur’… I can work hours that suit me, and spend time with my daughter. It’s a win-win situation.”
Hareena – Bedford franchisee

Own A Franchise

What is a CIBY franchise?

When you buy a CIBY franchise, you buy a licence to manage and run our yoga-inspired movement programme through your own business.

It’s easy to expand

You could earn an average of £60 per class working by yourself. But you can hire freelance teachers to run classes as well. That’s more working hours and more income for your business. You can even work less but still earn more.

It’s a significant but profitable investment

The more work you put in to growing your business, the more profit you’ll make when you choose sell it on.

It’s a business in a box

When you buy our franchise, we give you everything you need to get your business up and running straightaway. That includes the benefit of our 14 years’ experience and knowledge.

“I’ve got the freedom to have fun all day doing something that I am totally passionate about whilst still being a totally present mummy for my daughters … & I also get paid really well for it! I have never felt luckier.I love the supportive women-helping-women to achieve their goals that our Head Office promotes. I wake up feeling lucky every morning. The professionalism, support and care that is been provided has made the decision to leave the corporate world and move into franchising easy.  It is a pleasure to be part of a fantastic, enthusiastic & motivated team that are truly making the difference in children’s lives.”
