What Is YogaBellies?


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

Cheryl's main focus in establishing YogaBellies was to empower women through yoga and to help them to have a sustainable career as yoga teachers. 


The main thing that yoga teacher training lacks is someone who actually has the experience of creating a successful yoga business; I have this and I want to share it with as many teachers as possible!

I've personally trained and coached hundreds of YogaBellies teachers in my proven business systems and marketing practices that have made YogaBellies a global phenomenon. I've won several business awards over the years including but not only...

  • LuxLife Most Inspirational Women's Yoga Teacher 2021 
  • The Great British Entrepreneur Award 2019
  • The Scottish Edge Award for Enterprise 2013
  • Woman of the Year Award 2014
  • Mumpreneur UK Award 2012
  • 3 x What's On for Little Ones Awards 2014
  • Working Mums Top Employer Award 2015
  • Mums Club Top 100 Businesses 2012


Cheryl and YogaBellies have been featured on BBC Two Dragons’ Den (watch the video below!) 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 shared vision and values

YogaBellies represents an umbrella organisation for women’s yoga and wellness businesses (including our BRA mentors) who share a common 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.
