There are so many things to do with kids in Cheshire so if you know of any other classes, groups, days out etc which are not already listed, or would like to feature in the list, please contact us here.

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.

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
