Can I bring my Partner, Grandparent, other children?

Yes! The retreat is tailored and priced for 1 Adult & baby, but we understand you may have a support person travelling with you too.

The approximate costs for additional family guests are listed below, but we recommended larger families (for example Mum, Dad, Toddler & Baby) stay in the standard studio room, which includes 2 x Double beds.  These rooms do not have a kitchenette.  We cannot guarantee 2 bedroom suites for all ‘large’ families as solo Mums will take preference to share with another Mum.

Please apply with your full situation and we will let you know the best available package.

Is there an age cap on babies?

This retreat is designed for Mums with babies of any age, however we do encourage babies 4 months – 2 years old.

Older children are welcome, but it will be up to the parent’s discretion as to how their child will cope with the activities.  You can always bring some food & entertainment to help amuse them during activities.

Australian Fitness standards advise a minimum 6 weeks wait after vaginal birth & 12 weeks following caesarean section birth before recommencing a postnatal fitness program.

We will also require that Mum has had the ‘all clear’ from her health care provider (GP/OB/MW) to commence exercise after birth.  Just a verbal discussion with your health care provider is required.  Only in some health circumstance we may request a written consent.

Do I have to be fit?

We will be exercising every day on the retreat so a being active during pregnancy or a basic introductory postnatal fitness program before the retreat is highly recommended.  You do not have to be a gym bunny as we will offer different levels during the exercise.  You just need to have started moving your body at some level prior to attending.  No Yoga or Kanga experience is required.. but we know you will love them both.

No coordination is required for the classes.  Just come and have a great time.

Breastfeeding Mums?

Breastfeeding is encouraged in both public & private areas of the resort at your leisure.  If you are bottle feeding, please ensure you bring appropriate amounts of formula & bottles.

What if I fall pregnant before the retreat?

Well we do love babies!

This program is tailored for postnatal Mums, however it will still be possible to participate in the retreat.  The main modification will be Kangatraining.  You will not be able to wear your child in a carrier for the Kangatraining classes whilst pregnant.  We will give you modifications to follow the Pre-Kanga program.  It will be essential to get clearance from your health care provider GP/OB/MW prior to attending the retreat.  Verbal is fine, but in some health circumstance we may request a written consent.

What is Kangatraining?

Kangatraining is the ultimate babywearing dance based workout.  We focus on rebuilding your entire body after pregnancy, through a fun & energetic class.  Babies are worn in carriers and often gently rocked to sleep with our smooth moves.

We love all things about babywearing, but not all carriers are suitable for the exercises we do in class.  We can assess your carrier for suitability, but we will also have spare Manduca’s available to use during the retreat.


Ok, I am in!!
