Post Natal Mums and Bubs info
KANGATRAINING is the ultimate postnatal workout for Mums, Bubs & Toddlers. Children spends most of the class in a woven wrap or carrier, where they usually fall asleep with the rocking motion of movement to music.
KANGATRAINING is a complete dance based workout during which both cardiovascular endurance/flexibility and muscular capacity/strength are enhanced. Naturally, the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles and correct posture are given special attention.
KANGATRAINING is safe for pelvic floor muscles and focuses on correct carrying of your baby during the workout. Sometimes the smallest adjustments of the carrier can make a huge difference.
