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.

My Baby Yoga classes are on Tuesdays at 11 am at Macclesfield Library, Jordangate, Macclesfield, SK10 1EE and Fridays at 11.15am at Mother Natures Sanctuary, 104 Palmerston St, Bollington, Macclesfield SK10 5PW
