Baby Yoga with Saffron

Saffrons Yoga was set up by me, Saffron! I have been surrounded by yoga my whole life. My inspiring mother has practiced yoga since she was 15 and therefore has always practiced yoga with and around me and my brother. Its a way of life for us all and it felt natural for me teach others the joys and benefits of yoga.

I trained as a yoga teach with Dru yoga on a four year course and completed the course age 27 years, in March 2009.

When I had my first child, I wanted to learn more about yoga with babies and share my knowledge with other mums that might need support so I set up baby yoga classes in Macclesfield, in 2009.

When I was pregnant with my second child, I trained as a specialist in pregnancy yoga. I learnt and taught pregnancy yoga all through my pregnancy till 3 weeks before my due date and it kept me strong.

My Baby Yoga classes are on Tuesdays at 11 am at Macclesfield Library, Jordangate, Macclesfield, SK10 1EE and Wednesdays at 1pm at Mother Nature Sanctuary, 104 Palmerston St, Bollington, Macclesfield SK10 5PW
