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.

Creative Mindfulness Classes in Wilmslow. Perfect for children aged 4 – 9

Giving a child the gift of mindfulness in their early life offers them the chance to form positive habits that they will take with them into adulthood.

This class offers a fantastic way for children to explore their creativity through movement, games, yoga, arts and crafts and breathwork. Each week we discuss different ideas around emotional literacy and incorporate the themes of kindness, compassion and empathy. We teach different mindfulness techniques that the children can re-use at home. We use arts and crafts to get their creativity flowing ending each session with a calming children’s meditation.

Smile Group Meet Ups

Smile Group was set up by Natalie and Ruth in 2011. Both mums had first-hand experience of perinatal mental health challenges, and identified a gap in community support.

When we set The SMILE Group up we wanted it to be a place where families can relax and not feel judged or intimidated in any way. The group is a drop-in format and there is no pressure to attend regularly.

We invite parents to chat, drink tea and there is always a welcoming smile and an open door. We also enable mums and dads to indulge in valuable ‘me’ time with sample complementary therapy treatments to bring a sense of wellbeing.

See the Smile Group’s website for information on the weekly meet ups.

Current Meet Ups (September 2021)

Monday 10am – 12noon at Elim Church in Nantwich
Tuesday 10am – 12noon at Sandbach Children’s Centre
Wednesday 10am – 12noon at Holmes Chapel and Congleton Children’s Centre
