'Slinga' Babywearing is a personal trainer led group based session in which your little one attends with you in a baby carrier. It carries the same concepts as the standard Babywearing Fitness classes, but on a much lighter level...

You dance yourself fit! In this simple & safe aerobic class with no equipment needed other than your little one in a carrier; think Zumba, but with babies and cheesier!

This is the perfect return to fitness class (Postpartum), or for those looking for a lighter, more enjoyable bonding class, perfect for both you & your little one!

The sessions will be run in a semi-structured format whereby you can participate at your own pace, with each routine being altered to suit your requirements with postnatal fitness and babywearing safety at the forefront of the classes design.

You can stop at any time to tend to your little ones, and jump back in when you are ready. Like all the classes offered, there will be toys,mats, etc still provided if you do not want to 'wear' the full class so you can still join in. Also, there will be ergonomic baby carriers available for use during the class, however you are welcome to use your own (once agreed with instructor it is safe enough for class use).

After class, its time to socialise! Expect hot drinks & nibbles, time to chat with others and for little ones to play. much deserved for all after your hard work in class!

Slinga Babywearing Fitness offers you:

- A fun, upbeat and social way to get fit with your little one

- Bonding as well as all the benefits babywearing offers

- No childcare worries
