Embody’s 75-minute prenatal yoga classes at DB Plaza offer a gentle physical activity for pregnant women. Studies have suggested that practising yoga – moving and breathing mindfully – while pregnant, can improve sleep, and reduce stress and anxiety. Through a variety of stretches and strengthening movements, mums build up the flexibility and endurance needed for childbirth. Prenatal classes are held on Mondays at 11.30am, postnatal classes on Fridays at 2pm.
Special pregnancy packages are on offer at The Feel Good Factor in Central. The aim is to promote comfort and relaxation with pregnancy massage beds, designed to accommodate growing tums, available.

EpicLand’s Epic Explorers, held every Tuesday and Thursday from 9.45am to 10.45am, is suitable for kids from crawling to three years. The epic classes combine music and movement, singing and obstacle play. Children learn through play – having fun with bubbles and balls fires up their imaginations and helps them develop gross motor skills. Epic Explorers classes are included in EpicLand’s Happy Hour price of HK$80, with playtime until 11.30am.
