What Is YogaBellies?

A concept created by founder Cheryl MacDonald to empower women throughout life using feminine yoga practices.

Cheryl and YogaBellies have been featured on BBC Two Dragons’ Den and also ITV’s This Morning with Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield. Cheryl has also worked with celebrities such as Kimberley (of Girls Aloud fame) and Catherine Tyldsley (Coronation Street.)

YogaBellies is all about:

  • Empowering women. 
  • All women. 
  • At every life stage.
  • We’re still focused on all things yoga and wellness.

We continue to empower women to become certified yogabellies teachers and/or run their own business 

YogaBellies shared vision and values

We are now open to existing businesses and yoga teachers who can simply undertake our teacher training learnings and teach their own flavour of YogaBellies offering, under their own brand. For example, OM MOMS CLUB is part of YogaBellies collective, but own company teaching own techniques and classes based on yogabellies principals and values.

  • Can I start teaching YogaBellies branded classes and be listed on your website?

    Yes! On completion of our 200 or 300-hour courses, you can apply to become a Licensed YogaBellies Teacher, meaning you will have your own mini-site on www.yogabellies.com, where you can list your classes and be instantly searchable worldwide. You will also have ongoing access to our International Teachers Lounge for support on your yoga journey, use of our pre-written class plans, social media templates, business tools and brand exposure. Becoming a licensed teacher is completely optional and application is no guarantee of approval.

  • Is YogaBellies a franchise?

    No, we no longer offer a franchise model. YogaBellies now offers stand-alone yoga teacher training for all women and practitioners, with no obligatory fees, restrictions or ongoing commitments. There is also an optional opportunity to become a Licensed YogaBellies Teacher, where you can teach our branded class plans and be listed and searchable on our website. There is no obligation to do so and you can do this, even if you currently have your own yoga business, e.g. OM Mums Club, Dubai is listed on our website as having been trained by YogaBellies and practising the methods.
