    Why Prenatal Yoga?
    Perhaps there is no greater time in a woman’s life when her connection to herself, her thoughts, her body, and her spirit is more important. Important because it is having direct effect on her future, her offspring, the next generation, the way in which new life is welcomed into her world, the way in which she believes in her ability to face great challenges. Pregnancy is, in many ways, a metaphor for life. Today, in the western world, yoga has many different styles, traditions, and teachers. It is explored by both individuals and groups of people for many different personal reasons and purposes. Awareness, mindfulness, discipline, strength, focus, relaxation; all are beneficial for pregnancy, motherhood, and for life! If we are able to infuse these virtues into our future citizens at the very start of their life, would it not seem the world could become a more peaceful place? Prenatal yoga is yoga for two (or more)! It is beautifully efficient! It is the ultimate expression of personal growth, both physical and spiritual. It is this balance of the ART and the SCIENCE that I believe creates the most balanced, well-rounded, widely-suitable, therapeutic, safe, and practical instruction of prenatal yoga available today.

    While practicing prenatal yoga women are either just starting their yoga practice or consciously adjusting their current “pre-pregnant” practice, and are therefore in either case opening their minds to intense change. When she becomes pregnant, she is in many ways a different person with different thoughts, a different body, and new beliefs. However, she is still the same person, with her same existing “life issues,” same family members and relationships, same environment, same roots.

    Amy Hopkins combines over 20 years of maternal wellness, birth support, and prenatal yoga experience into her teaching of prenatal yoga. She currently “teaches the teacher” with her deep belief that Prenatal Yoga is an art and a science, and one of the best forms of childbirth preparation. This online video is intended for pregnant women to enjoy in the comforts of their own home and on their own schedule. The 40-minute practice is both relaxing and strengthening, safe and therapeutic, and intended to nurture women in any stage of pregnancy while preparing them for birth and motherhood! There are 5 different intentions weaved throughout this instructional video: Centering & Grounding, Breath & Movement, Strength & Focus, Balance & Control, and Relaxation & Rest. Take a deep breath, dive in, and ENJOY!

      Amy Hopkins is an advocate for wellness – plain and simple. Since earning her nursing degree from the University of New Hampshire in 1997 and her massage certification from the Boulder College of Massage Therapy in 2001, she has spent years creating a body of professional wellness work.

      During her early years working in Maternal/Child nursing in various hospital settings, Amy’s interest in holistic medicine was reinforced as she saw first-hand the need for it in her patients and in herself. In 1998, an adventurous move to Colorado stimulated her passion for all-things-healthy, mind, body, and spirit. It was here that Amy realized that wellness would be her life’s work.

      In 2009, Amy opened GLOW, LLC – an innovative studio that is the culmination of Amy’s unique blend of expertise, commitment to wellness and desire to develop and share this holistic perspective with her community and beyond. Amy loves being “the face of GLOW” and promoting wellness through her teaching of massage and yoga, collaborating with her colleagues to create the best wellness plan for GLOW clients and students, building lasting professional relationships within her community, and with travel near and dear to her heart, Amy especially thrives on taking her professional trainings “on the road.”
