Our Senior therapist Kanya has studied multiple courses in pregnancy massage to further develop her knowledge and understanding of the perinatal journey, what mother and baby experience throughout the trimesters and postnatal support for new mothers. She has advanced her skills and techniques to apply appropriate treatments for complex presentations that may occur during pregnancies to promote relaxation, reduce pain and discomforts throughout your journey.
Nancy provides pampering packages to all expecting mothers which includes relaxing massages with a beautiful soft facial finished off with a pedicure.
This package is only available at our Aranda clinic and exclusively available for expecting mothers.

Our prenatal yoga classes are focused on building strength for labour, birth and beyond, while also building your connection with baby. Our sequences are suitable for all stages of pregnancy, with modifications offered to support you during each trimester. As every pregnancy is unique, we empower you to listen to your body and work at a level that is appropriate for your body in each class.
Classes run on Saturday at 3pm in Aranda
Our postnatal yoga classes are designed to support your postpartum recovery and return to exercise. Our sequences focus on (re)building strength and regaining good posture, while protecting and strengthening your pelvic floor. Our classes are for mums – and their bubs – who are at least six weeks postpartum (and have medical clearance). We support connection with your baby and you are welcome to feed, change and cuddle them throughout the class.
Classes run on Friday at 10am in Aranda
