The course is perfect for your little one as young as 3/4 weeks old right up to moving. It’s a 5 week course, held at Mother Nature Sanctuary, in Bollington and runs every Wednesday at 10 until 11.15am.

The class starts with the massage first and we work through all the body parts over the weeks and finish with a full body by the end of the course. It is amazing to see how the babies respond to the massage over the 5 weeks. Plus the feedback from the mums who have completed the course have said how relaxing they find the class too – some time for you too.

The second half of the class is your time, brew and homemade cake and a chance to meet and chat with the other mums or dads.

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
