Led by Amy Hopkins, RN, LMT, E-RYT and J Harker, LMT, this will be a wonderful day of HANDS-ON! We will teach, demonstrate, and practice simple, fun, and feel-great Thai Yoga Massage Techniques.
Thai Yoga Massage is an ancient healing art with origins in Ayurvedic Medicine, Yoga, and Buddhism. It has evolved into a unique and magical combination of deep stretching, rhythmic compression, soft-tissue manipulation, gentle rocking, energy balancing, and acupressure.
Making this type of bodywork accessible to the lay person AND useful for professionals is one way we can “Be The Change…”
Supine, Prone, Side-lying floor positions, as well as some standing and seated positions, will be covered. No lotions or oils will be used and students will remain fully clothed.
J Harker (yes, just J) has been practicing various modalities of massage since her graduation from the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy in 2006. Before relocating to the Seacoast area and joining GLOW, J enjoyed her private practice on Cape Cod.
She has taken a variety of Continuing Education Courses including Thai Massage, Active Isolated Stretching (AIS), Neck Specific, Trigger Point Therapy, Reiki, and pre & post-natal massage. She offers a unique combination of these teachings to give an individualized experience tailored to the client’s specific needs. Her offerings can include Deep Tissue, Swedish, Sustained Compression, Stretching, and Breath Work. With her prenatal massage clients, she offers the option of a “pregnancy pillow” allowing the client to lay prone if beneficial for the client. J encourages her clients to voice their needs before and during their sessions, and provide feedback to ensure the best therapeutic experience possible.
As a previous doula as well as a yoga teacher and student, J understands the importance of whole care – the mind, body, and spirit connection. She believes whole-heartedly that massage is a beautiful way to complement a yoga practice.
J uses synchronized breath along with nurturing pressure and movement to bring about increased body awareness.
In her daily life, J enjoys cooking, creating art, and quality time with her infant daughter, husband, and two teenage boys.
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.”
