Yoga Vida is located in Mooloolaba, the heart of the Sunshine Coast. Just a stroll will take you to patrolled surf beaches, or a short drive will get you to hinterland gems such as Montville, and the Glasshouse Mountains - a hikers paradise. Bring your SUP (Stand Up Paddleboard) in case you’d like to paddle your way through Mooloolaba’s labyrinth of waterways launching from Yoga Vida!
We are honored to be able to bring our training down under thanks to the overwhelming demand and encouragement from our Australian students and friends, as well as the wonderful team at Yoga Vida!
This training will be led by international yoga teacher, Amy Ippoliti. Amy’s dynamic wisdom and innovative teaching methods are the result of 30+ years of study, and 20 years of teaching.
Amy’s commitment to sharing the vast teachings of yoga with uncompromising quality and joy empowers students to develop a unique, authentic relationship to yoga. The 90 Monkeys training offers a world-class education, grounded in the wisdom of experienced teachers and empowered professionalism and self-inquiry.
There are few trainings that provide as many contact hours with the principal teacher, but at 90 Monkeys we are committed to having our students spend the majority of their time under Amy’s guidance.
This training will combine studies in:
- Alignment-based vinyasa yoga
- Yoga lifestyle and well-being
- Pranayama & meditation
- Foundations for teaching yoga
- Professionalism & right livelihood
- Teaching methodology
- And so much more!
If this is your first teacher training program, this training will immerse you in yoga and build an extraordinary foundation for both teaching and practicing. If you have already graduated from another 200-hour program, we encourage you to apply! Continuing education will help you augment and diversify your training background and work closely under Amy’s guidance.

Compliments from past graduates:
This training was the best experience of my life. Yoga with Amy has changed my outlook on life. I am much happier than I was before.”
~ Satomi Fujii, MD
Training with Amy has been one of the most fulfilling, empowering and uplifting experiences of my life. I’ve learned how to have a deeper conversation with my body – one that is healthy, sustainable and uplifting. Amy exudes absolute passion, joy and deep knowledge of yoga and so she naturally passes this on to her students. As a yoga teacher, I feel inspired and confident because I now have the tools to empower my students on and off the mat.
~ Sarah Diedrick, USA, Yoga Teacher & Wellness Coach
Thank you for a truly transformative teacher training experience in Boulder. Each day was gift. Amy’s dedication and commitment to excellence and leadership in instruction was visible every day. She led by example and cultivated a group of trainees who embraced the challenges and intensity of a 5 week training with open hearts. I am grateful to have been included in this adventure of learning!
~ Elizabeth Gross, USA, Retired School Administrator
This teacher Training is transformational on so many levels. I not only learned practical skills for teaching, I also shed behavior and attitudes that were holding me back from being my most authentic self. Amy created such a safe space for all of us to learn, make mistakes, laugh, and grow as teachers and as a group.
~ Rachel Klapper, USA, Yoga and Dance Teacher
Amy is one of the most masterful teachers under whom I’ve have been blessed and honored to study. She teaches the depths and intricacies of yoga with timely pace, the passionate gusto of a true leader, and the knowledge and expertise of a modern day sage.
~ David Newbery, Switzerland, Yoga Teacher & Entrepreneur
Amy’s TT gave me the momentum I needed to go to the next level. She helped me to get unstuck in places I didn’t realize I was stuck. Amy didn’t just tell me “anything is possible”, she helped me find the tools to grow as a teacher and as a human being.
