“The 90 Monkey 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program met, exceeded, and blew up my wildest expectations. I chose it because I wanted to learn from a teacher who understands the biomechanics of the human body and teaches with an alignment perspective. What I got was that and so much more. Amy Ippoliti is an incredible yogi, but most importantly, a radiant, expansive human being and talented teacher. She and her assistants created a place where the culture was uplifting, honesty was key, and vulnerability was natural. They pushed us just enough, and held and supported us as we tore down walls and limitations, looked inside, put on our energy tights, and expanded from the very core of our being to the outer reaches of the universe. This experience is just the beginning of an incredible journey of identifying the greatness that is within and being able to bring it out of everyone I have the privilege to teach. I am looking forward to continuing with 90 Monkeys in the 500-hour program and being part of this community of incredibly talented humans.”
