KangaPowerhouse is a program designed to educate, empower and equip women with tools to assist in strengthening the powerhouse of your body: Your Pelvic Floor.
Many women have a weakened pelvic floor and suffer from symptoms such as leaking urine, passing wind involuntarily, reduced sensation during sex and the list goes on. It's common. But it's not normal and not something any woman should live with without seeking help.
Endorsed and encouraged by Women's Health Physiotherapists, the KangaPowerhouse program can further help in improving the function of your pelvic floor. We will teach you about the function of your pelvic floor, offer practical ways you can improve function and learn fun and effective exercises to connect with and strengthen your pelvic floor.
Described as "Yoga for the Pelvic Floor" you will be empowered by this program and improve confidence in the function of your body, in a supportive and caring environment.
The person behind the name - JULIE TUPLER
Julie Tupler is a qualified nurse, certified personal trainer and maternity advisor. She lives and works in USA, New York City.
As early as 1990 she began developing the Tupler-Technique®, a research and experience-based exercise program to close diastasis recti, the effectiveness of which has been proven by studies.
Julie has been training medical and fitness professionals around the world in her Tupler Technique® since 2009. She is a frequent speaker at both medical and fitness conferences.
The basis of the Tupler Technique® is the closing of the diastasis recti by strengthening the connective tissue, because the extensive tissue between the separated abdominal muscles can cause various problems.

Kangatraining is a full body workout that combines cardio, core work and strengthening exercises. Your baby is included in the entire class and is in the carrier for most of the time (often sleeping!) which means you gradually build up your strength. We work on safely re strengthening your core and pelvic floor.
Have you heard of the fourth trimester? It is a time of physical and emotional change for the first 12 weeks of life outside of the womb as your baby adjusts to being out in the big world and your life as a new parent. This means that your baby may not want to be put down and may just want to be cuddled most of the time - this is where babywearing comes in handy!
Here at Pregnancy to Parenthood, we can help you decide on the best carrier to suit your lifestyle or show you how to fit your current carrier comfortably and safely.
Get the confidence to know exactly what to do when your child needs your help. You can host a Baby and Child first aid session in the comfort of your home or place of choice.
