About

Hi! I’m Dawn from SunRise Yoga and I love teaching kids yoga

Studies shows that children who practice yoga experience a reduction of stress, have better and longer sleep, improved digestion, and for parents and children who practice yoga together it strengthens their bond. 

Sometimes after a class though they forget how to do a downward dog, warrior pose or a guerrilla pose and want to keep practicing at home. 

We’ve tried paper handouts but they get misplaced or crumpled and they’re not very exciting.

We want to be able to give the children something to go away and play with so they can familiarise themselves with the poses and perhaps even come up with new ones themselves! 

So meet Jules

Jules is a 7" figure that can bend at the legs, arms, neck and hips. This means that poses like downward dog, warrior and headstands are no problem for this girl!

So why we need your help?

We now have a finalised prototype and we are ready to go into production. 

It’s the cost of the tooling to create the mould that makes this prohibitive for a husband and wife team to do. And this is where you come in:

The goal is set to allow us to have the mould made and reach the minimum quantity required for production and delivery to the UK. We want to get Jules to you in your hands by the end of March. 

We’ve set 6 rewards ranging from £1 (with our eternal thanks) all the way through to a £50 class pack of 10 with the name of your yoga school on the instruction leaflet in the packaging with the retail figure and on our website. 

KickStarter backers will get a minimum of 37% discount against the projected retail cost (£8) of a 'Jules" all the way up to 45%.

If we are fortunate enough to exceed our funding goal we’ll introduce some stretch rewards too. 

So thank you in advance from TeamYoga for your contributions and we look forward to being able to bring you ‘Jules’ very very soon. 

Here’s wishing you a happy and bendy 2014

Risks and challenges

We have already paid for the prototype of Jules' (you've seen her) and it's now a tooling cost.

We've got the colour, touch, and shape right it's now paying the tooling costs.

Should there be a problem with the supplier we have a backup provider ready to go. This would involve the prototype stage being done again and this would be at OUR COST and not out of the project costs.
