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

The Smile Group

❤️UPDATE DURING CORONAVIRUS While our groups and home visits are unable to run, we are here for you in other ways.

Sue & Bronya are offering to call, text or provide email support during group hours for anyone in Cheshire East who engages with our face-to-face services. Any new mums self referring or being referred by a health care professional will just need to register with us via email hello@thesmilegroup.org before we can provide assistance, as would be the case if you came to group for the first time.

It is so reassuring to hear a friendly voice on the end of a phone and to have support from someone who understands what you are going through, especially given the current circumstances. We would like to remind you that you’re not alone and that we are here.❤️


The SMILE Group was co-founded by Natalie Nuttall and Ruth Eglin in 2011 after they both experienced PND and felt passionate about the need for parents to benefit from sustained peer support at a local level.

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 in Macclesfield, Congleton and Sandbach.



We may not be able to run our classes in our lovely venues right now so we’ve launched Toddler Sense @Home!

Join a weekly online class for a wonderful shared learning experience for you and your child. The theme changes each week and you will be given lots of ideas of resources to use and how to further your child’s learning after the session. Our classes are run by myself each week so they see a familiar face and it’s fully interactive throughout.

Just head to https://www.toddlersense.com/eastcheshire/  to join the online fun!!

🤷🏻‍♀️Why join an online class for my toddler??

👉Toddlers need consistency and routine to help them process information and learn, coming online each week with me gives them the opportunity

👉Toddlers need to burn off energy, of course it’s great to get outside and do this but joining me online gives you new ideas and allows them to burn energy in a structured way

👉This gives you and your toddler dedicated time to do something together

v👉I will provide activities and ask you to collect resources which you can then extend their learning with throughout the day

👉They will hear familiar songs and see familiar faces each week which will engage and entertain your little one!

See you online soon! 👍
