Kangatraining is on every Monday at 11.00am, Thursday at 1.00pm and Friday at 10.30am during School Term time.
When to start
You can begin Kangatraining once you have been given the “all clear” from your health professional to resume exercising postpartum. This can be anywhere from 6-10 weeks or slightly longer following a caesarean section. I will ask you to complete a health questionnaire to highlight any concerns so that I can modify the exercises in the workout for you if needed.
Without a doubt, safety is the number one consideration when using a baby carrier. Many popular carriers, although not posing an immediate threat, are not optimally designed to support the natural development of baby’s hips and spine. Babies should be worn in a carrier that ensures that their legs are supported, in an “M” position with knees splayed out, and facing inward towards the wearer.
You are welcome to bring your carrier that our I will assess as to its suitability for the class. I will also assist you in getting the best fit and comfort for you and your baby. There will be demo carriers available at each class to try out or hire on an ongoing basis.
Every Kangatraining instructor works closely with a Babywearing Consultant to ensure correct babywearing practices are met.
