Something More, with Amy Ippoliti
Listen to the Podcast
When she was a lonely 16-year-old and feeling lost in high school, confused by the “mean girls” and sure that “there must be more to life than this,” master teacher Amy Ippoliti and her mom decided to take a yoga class at the local fitness studio. Decades later, Amy is a world-renowned yoga teacher and the co-founder of 90 Monkeys, one of the leading online schools for advanced yoga education.
Join host Colleen Saidman Yee as we find out what makes Amy Ippoliti tick. Amy shares her yoga journey with us, and especially how her dad’s copy of the Tao Te Ching, and a yoga teacher who she thought “was kind of out there, but she knows something…more than just fitness” helped her embrace the mystery and mysticism she was searching for.
In this first segment of our much longer interview with Amy, you’ll also hear how Amy’s early experiences in New York City with Sivananda and Urban Yoga led to her meeting Cyndi Lee, which led her to vinyasa, then Jivamukti, and eventually, to meet Colleen.
