Achieve the perfect work/life balance that suits you!

YogaBellies®Kidz has grown from our work with women and infants during the most important time of their lives, and now we work with older children across the world. Learn to use authentic yogic practices and techniques in a fun, vibrant and rewarding career as a YogaBellies®Kidz instructor.

All YogaBellies® classes offer authentic yoga practices with a modern twist. We offer yoga for women, pregnancy and post-partum; childbirth preparation as well as yoga and massage for babies, toddlers and children. We have a world-wide network of Certified YogaBellies® Teacher’s, each extensively trained and mentored in their chosen YogaBellies® field.

How did yogabellies® begin?

Cheryl MacDonald is a Yoga Elder, founder of YogaBellies, author, Dragons’ Den winner and mother of one gorgeous little man. She has been practising yoga for 18 years and has trained extensively in yoga and antenatal education amongst other holistic therapies. Her skills and experience combined with her love of yoga and the belief that everyone can practice yoga, are the essence of YogaBellies®. Such is the popularity now of Cheryl and her YogaBellies style classes, that she recently taught children’s yoga on ITV’s This Morning programme with Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield, demonstrating pregnancy and children’s yoga. Cheryl has also taught yoga and birth preparation to a number of celebrities including Kimberley Walsh (Girls Aloud) and Fearne Cotton.

Cheryl started YogaBellies® for those women and children who wanted to practice and experience the many benefits of yoga, without it seeming too 'mystical' or unattainable. She

started to teach classes specifically for women, mums and their children, so that they could grow to love yoga, connect with their true selves and to bond with each other. YogaBellies® has grown to include an experienced training faculty of teachers with a wealth of experience, including experienced yoga teachers, doctors, midwives, massage therapists and chiropractors.

Cheryl believes that children can be introduced to yoga from the very beginning, with YogaBellies offering Mum & Baby yoga classes from only six weeks old! YogaBelliesKidz is a fun, exciting and empowering experience for children helping them to develop and grow, physically and mentally. It is her hope that as a Certified YogaBellies® Teacher, you will share our vision of gently guiding children through childhood with our special techniques.

what our teachers think about teaching yogabellieskidz…

I started off by approaching my old primary school and presenting to them what YogaBelliesKidz was all about. I used Cheryl's YogaBelliesKidz class objectives and marketing materials to present, and also read up more of my course notes. My first class was £3 per child for a 45min session and I had 15 kids aged from 3-5 years old, chaotic fun for 10 weeks! After this I approached some other schools and so the story goes.... One school pays me £30 per hour and I have 2 weekly sessions here, whereas the others are all per head payable upfront in advance.
