Annie Hopkins graduated from Northeastern University in 2006 with her Masters in Physical Therapy. She has worked for over a decade in a variety of inpatient and outpatient settings, developing a holistic approach to healing that empowers her patients with knowledge and support. Annie has advanced training in orthopedic and pelvic health through the American Physical Therapy Association. She is also a certified yoga instructor, including additional training in prenatal yoga, and has served as the Director of Sports Medicine at Beartooth Billings Clinic in Red Lodge, Montana.
Annie is working towards becoming a Certified Birth Healing Specialist through the Institute of Birth Healing so she can help women prepare for labor and heal after birth. She uses a combination of hands-on techniques to help realign the body and restore balance physically and emotionally after going through the significant physical changes related to pregnancy and childbirth. She has always been passionate about empowering women and helping each person figure out their own path to wholesome healing. She believes there is nothing more powerful than a woman who is aligned with her true self! So, when she saw how women struggle on their journey to and through motherhood, she knew she had to step up. Throughout her career, perinatal care had been on the back burner - teaching some modules in a childbirth education class, holding a few prenatal yoga classes a year--but in 2018 she decided to go all in and fully devote her career to pelvic health PT with a specialty in pregnancy and postpartum care. Since that decision, she has deepened her education and completed 100+ hours of training. She is committed to learning and expanding her practice to bring the best exercises, hands on techniques, wellness information, and holistic care to women, especially mamas and mamas-to-be! You already have the power inside you; Annie is here to help guide you back home to who you are.
When Annie is not at Oceanside, you can find her practicing yoga, coaching at Girls on the Run, hanging out with her Siberian Husky, Magic, or hiking, skiing, gardening, catching a live show, or traveling.
