Still wondering what the Pretzel Kids Teacher Association is all about?
Let's start with what we're NOT about:
This is NOT an expensive franchise and there are no mandatory overhead costs.
This is NOT a gimmicky company with high inventory expenses and hidden fees every which way you turn.
Instead, we are:
A program designed to help you do something meaningful (yup, teach kids yoga) and achieve financial success - at the same time!
That's right: The sky's the limit!
What's included in the PkTA?
The rights (also called 'license') touse our name, logos, brochures, brand images, marketing materials and more to more effectively market your kids yoga classes. This means you become a licensee (without any hefty fees).
Your own profile page on our Pretzel Kids web platform to include your bio, photo, availability, class information, and social media links. This will enable studios, parents and school directors to find and hire you directly or your business for teaching gigs.
List all your classes on our yoga class locator. Parents will be able to find YOUR classes and sign up (through you directly, the yoga studio, the gym or wherever you are teaching!) Your bio will be prominently featured so that parents and school administrators can also learn more about you - and book you and/or your business for teaching gigs!
Be part of our exclusive community of Pretzel Kids teachers! For starters, you'll have access to our private Circle group and app, where you'll get class tips, monthly lesson plans, marketing brochures, class themes and other tools to help you run your Pretzel Kids yoga classes!
"Ask Me Anything" 'Live Room' meetings with Pretzel Kids Founder Robyn Parets.
Ongoing trainings on topic like: 'How to Adapt Curriculum to Children with Special Needs' and 'How to Price Classes and Increase Enrollments.'
Social media and PR support, featuring YOU, your classes and events!
Discounts on related services, such as liability insurance.
The ability to get booked for birthday parties and more!
Free adult yoga classes via our online partner studio!
The ability to get more teaching gigs via our matchmaker service.
What's the catch?
NOTHING. We don't earn a cent off your classes. Your only cost is our low membership fee, which is designed to help you increase your earnings using Pretzel Kids branding and resources.
Bet you're thinking: How can Pretzel Kids possibly make any money off this insanely low pricing model? Good question.
Here's the answer: We need to start our yoga teacher network and once we gain momentum with our early adopters, we can then roll out more features, consumer brands and other services. We also firmly believe that what we are doing is changing the lives of children and the lives of those who are teaching Pretzel Kids classes.
And that's priceless.
Hear from our students:
Sheena got a lucrative after-school contract lead through Pretzel Kids, and now runs several successful classes in her community!
“The Pretzel Kids (membership) program and website has helped me grow my business and classes. Just recently, “Robyn sent me over a great opportunity that led to a secured after-school yoga series!”
I also love the ability to use the Pretzel Kids platform to “advertise my experience, a personal profile and the details of each of my classes. This gives me the opportunity to send the link to locations that are interested in new classes, as well as share in local social media community groups to encourage sign-ups for the classes.”
The resources provided by Pretzel Kids are invaluable, she says, adding: “I use the ongoing lesson plans and the marketing templates. The lesson plans make it easier to teach the class as they support a theme and provide ideas of each part of the class, rather than having to start from scratch on each lesson. They help to tie in the different poses and games that are central to the theme. It is also helpful that the themes are related to the time of the year. I recently used the “Snowy Day” lesson which was most applicable for winter.”
As for marketing, “the marketing templates (included in the Pretzel Kids membership) help me communicate to potential locations.”
I also gain a lot from the private group. “I find it helpful to get ideas from other teachers about methods they have used in their classes. This is also a great place to ask questions about future classes or lesson plans. I can also use the group to find new teaching opportunities that Robyn and other members post.”
In general, this program is great as “Robyn is supportive in this whole process, starting from when you initially sign up, to setting up your classes and business, to getting ongoing support with the website and class inquiries. She is readily available through email, our private group, and calls - which provides flexibility in getting needed support.”
- Sheena, Topsfield MA
I appreciate all of the resources provided in the Pretzel Kids membership.
For example, “the flyer templates are easy to edit and look professional. The ongoing lesson plans help me create new classes that the kids love. The “Ask Me Anything” (video calls) are informative and the last one answered all my questions about how to grow my business by reaching out to after-school programs and preschools.”
- Marci N, Melrose MA
I had an incredible time training the pretzel kids way! Robyn was quite inspirational and had plenty of wisdom to share. As an education major I could see the methods of pretzel kids will be very effective with kids yoga classes.
- Olivia K.
“As both an educator and yogini, I was amazed by the high quality of the Pretzel Kids approach, which combines the best in age-appropriate pedagogical practice with genuine yoga principles and techniques.
I got all the tools necessary to begin teaching right away and all the kids I have worked with have loved the PK experience!”
– Sarah B. of Israel
Instead of joining the hundreds of other frustrated certified yoga instructors trying to do everything alone, you can be one of the smart ones and join the PkTA!
We make it SIMPLE so that you can do what you love…TEACH KIDS YOGA!
Hi everyone! I'm Robyn Parets, founder and creator of Pretzel Kids®. I'm also a marketing & branding expert, financial writer, and journalist.
I began leading Pretzel Kids yoga certification courses more than 16 years ago under the umbrella of my former Boston yoga studio, Breathe Joy Yoga. I also formerly ran a 200-hour TT school, so my intention with Pretzel Kids is to give YOU a fast and easy way to teach kids yoga - without spending thousands of dollars on an RYT-200 course (that, by the way, won't prepare you to teach a bunch of 5-year-olds.) Yup, it's true.
I absolutely love helping women earn an income doing something they love. For this reason, I particularly enjoy mentoring licensed Pretzel Kids teachers on launching their own successful businesses.
Pretzel Kids® was founded as a way to offer a structured yoga play environment for children. In fact, our ground-breaking children's yoga curriculum was written by school teachers (also yoga instructors). It is designed to model effective classroom educational programs and make it easy for YOU to begin teaching kids yoga immediately.
When not teaching and coaching, I like to travel, meditate, spend time outdoors, read & write, and hang out with my family and dogs. You can learn more about me on my personal website HERE. Let me know if you have any questions!
Are you ready to join the exclusive Pretzel Kids membership community?
When does your membership start and finish?
Your membership starts now and is ongoing - as long as you want to be a licensed Pretzel Kids teacher. This is a completely optional program to help you launch and level up a Pretzel Kids business in your local community.
How long can I access and use the Pretzel Kids logos and branding materials to market myself, my kids yoga business and my classes?
After enrolling, you use Pretzel Kids branding, logos and ongoing resources for as long as you are part of the membership community in good standing.
Can I promote my classes as "Pretzel Kids" classes?
Yes, we support and recommend this! We simply ask that you do not register a domain name with the name Pretzel Kids, or create a social media page called Pretzel Kids, as in a website called lindsaytaylorpretzelkids.com or a Facebook page called Lindsayspretzelkids. You also cannot create an email address using the name Pretzel Kids (such as Lindsayspretzelkids@hotmail.com.) BUT, you can certainly liberally use the Pretzel Kids logo and refer to your classes as Pretzel Kids on your own website or social media pages. If you have any questions about this, please contact us.
What happens if I no longer want to be a licensed Pretzel Kids teacher? Of course we want you to stay with the program and we ask that you give it at least three months to see the benefits. Ultimately, it's your decision. Please note that if you cancel your membership: You'll no longer have the rights to use the Pretzel Kids branding and logos when marketing your classes, and you'll lose access to the Pretzel Kids Method course (if this is applicable to you). You'll also no longer have access to a profile page on our website or the private Circle community.
How do I cancel? You can either cancel your subscription on your own in your student dashboard, or if you need help unsubscribing: Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us why you wish to unsubscribe (important for us to know so that we can continue to improve the program). Please note: If you want us to unsubcribe you and you're on a monthly plan, your subscription will be discontinued 30 days after we receive and confirm your request (as you will have already received that month's lesson plan and any other materials). For example, if your request is received on January 25, you will be unsubscribed on February 25. You will be charged for any subscription fees until that point but not after that. If you are on the annual plan, your subscription will be terminated at the end of your paid term (so at the end of your year). We reserve the right to remove you from all courses once you cancel your membership. Subscription fees are non-refundable once paid.
Can I use the name "Pretzel Kids" for my email accounts, social media channels, business name or website domain name? Pretzel Kids is a registered trademark and as such, you cannot use the name for your own business, email accounts, website domain name, or social media accounts. However, because you are a member of the PkTA, you will get licensing rights to use the Pretzel Kids name and logos for your classes and events. And, with your membership, you can use our logos, name and brand on your own website. For further information, please contact us at email@example.com
What are the prerequisites for signing up? The only prerequisites: A) Already completed our online Pretzel Kids Yoga Teacher Training course or attended one of our live weekend trainings; B) You are currently enrolled in our course and working toward completion C) You have taken another approved yoga or kids yoga TT and have signed the membership form. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn whether your particular training course is one of our approved trainings.
Can I sign up if I haven't taken the Pretzel Kids Yoga certification course? Yes, but only if you have taken an approved program. Please see the answer above ⬆️ With that said, we highly recommend our Pretzel Kids course as this will open up more doors for you.
What happens if my payment gets declined? There are 3 main reasons this might happen: 1) Your credit card or bank account gets compromised.If this happens, you would need to enter in a new payment method. 2) You cancel your credit card (or it expires) and you forgot to enter a new payment method. 3) You used a debit card and there aren't enough funds in your account to cover your payment. To avoid this happening, we recommend always keeping your Pretzel Kids payment method updated to a current credit card (a better option than using a debit card). But, we know that sometimes life happens. If your payment is declined: You will get a notification email from Teachable. We recommend that you immediately update your payment method. If you don't do this right away: Teachable will send you 2 more notices. If you still haven't updated your billing info. by the time of notice #3, Teachable will automatically remove you from the membership/licensing program and you'll no longer be part of the Pretzel Kids teacher network. Please note: In the event of a failed payment and you wish to remain in the Pretzel Kids teacher network, you will be charged a $15 fee for non-payment after a 3-day grace period and will have 10 days to update your information before removal (so this is why you should update your billing method immediately, if possible). Likewise, if you let your membership lapse and wish to return to the program, you can do so at any time - at the current monthly or yearly rate.
I just took the online course! It was convenient, informative, and fun! Can’t wait to get started!!
- Maija T.
“I benefited so much from the Pretzel Kids® teacher training. The concept travels well and I have taught classes in Ireland and the U.S.!
This training gave me a serious advantage over adult yoga teachers who tried to teach kids without a proven concept. I would totally recommend the Pretzel Kids teacher training to teachers, parents and anyone who wants to teach little yogis!”
-- Louise L. of Ireland
