Work with us

Our team of franchisees come from all sorts of varied backgrounds 

and they have had two things in common…

They have never worked for themselves

They wanted to work flexibly

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

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, our Bedford franchisee

What is a Children Inspired by Yoga franchise?


We’re a British Franchise accredited operation and are proud of the accolades we’ve achieved. Winning a Social Enterprise Award for assisting mothers getting back to work was a defining moment in our mission.  We have been nominated Franchisor of the Year at the Mum And Working awards hosted by Nat West. For 3 years in a row we’ve been presented with a 5-star Satisfaction rating in the Smith and Henderson Benchmark Survey, scoring over 90% each year for franchise satisfaction, we’re thankful for this.  But the best prize of all is knowing each new member gets to join our united, supportive family here at Children Inspired by Yoga.

“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.”
