Amy Ippoliti: Raising the Volume of Global Awareness

Read more

World traveling instructor and Ocean Diving Yogi, Amy Ippoliti started practicing yoga in the 80’s before yoga was on the rise to becoming a trend. In this episode of Yoga Revealed, we dive into aspects of what yoga is today from someone who has studied with many masters of the lineage. If you are a yoga instructor, listening to Amy’s business model through her 90 Minutes to Change the World is going to be a game changer for you! Absorb the tools to run successful workshops and retreats!

I first met Amy Ippoliti practicing yoga at prAna in Boulder and I knew right away there was an inspired amount of wisdom that he had gained through her own practice, which came out in her classes. Her personality and dedication to learning brought her into Boulder, eventually opening up 90 Monkeys. The interview takes place in her beautiful humble studio on a lovely Boulder, Colorado day.

We start off by hearing her introduction to the practice studying with masters of the Ashtanga, Jiva Mukti, and Iyengar lineage back in the 90’s, which was the catalyst to taking her first of many trainings with Cindy Lee in NYC.

“So much of practice to me, is about community. Or the growth that i have as a person is the relationship to kalyana-mitra. which means, Friend on the Path.” Keeping friends close in the practice of yoga continually allows us to tap into our collective awakening.

What is your duty as a yoga instructor?

The biggest gift we can give our students as instructors is to practice, to stay curious through the practice and exploration of growth.

For the world, yoga helps us raise awareness, but it truly allows us to take ACTION! To make a difference, to be more kind, be more deliberate in our choices.


It’s all about the company that we keep.... get back into your community, Amy says! Meet new friends, new kalyana-mitra’s!

How Do We Become Better Students? Better Teachers?

Amy says, that to be a student, there is a way we disconnect through the internets and updates of apps and such, in this way we are always getting into the Next Big Thing. We must look back and to be a powerful student, we must look forward and be in the present, and acknowledge what came before us, so we can take information and wisdom and integrate it. LEARN FROM THE PAST! Find a mentor.

Teachers of this practice! Finding a mentor, no matter how long we have studied, becomes an expression to the level of studentship and devotion to the span of time working with your teachers. Stay Tethered by taking trainings and searching for continual guidance.

Check out Amy’s philosophy about teaching yoga and how to be successful in building public classes, retreats, social media, which is all information she lets you in by signing up for her webinar at  90 Minutes.

Tune into this interview and hear all about Amy’s challenge with capturing underwater photography with the planets largest gentle giants, the manta rays, whale sharks, and dolphins! Yogi in the sea!

Amy’s nugget of wisdom for the Yoga Revealed Community!

Ritual. Embrace ritual in some form on a daily basis. Something that makes you wake up in the morning and want to HELP someone else have a better day. Step into Seva for yourself, into order to serve others!
