Claire Pull will run the post-natal Kangatraining workouts for mothers to exercise while carrying their babies.

“I am a 33-year-old first-time mum with a seven-month-old and thought it would be a great idea to go into business with my baby,” she said.

“It means I can still exercise, work and be with my baby; no need for childcare.

“My career is a cardiac physiologist but since having my daughter I did not want to go back to the long days at the hospital.

“Kangatraining means a total body workout while your baby can relax and enjoy being close to you.

“The babies spend most of their time in a supportive baby carrier where the sound of music and rocking motion puts them at ease, sleep mainly.

“It is a safe and gentle workout that concentrates on restrengthening the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles while having a good time in a relaxed atmosphere.”

Mrs Pull will carry her daughter Daisy during the classes at Transgenesis School of Yoga on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

“The classes are one-hour long and begin with a warm-up, floor and core work where mum and bub interact,” she said.

“Then baby is placed into a carrier and the class continues with a low impact dance-based choreography.”

The Clarkson classes will run from 11am to noon on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
