40 Days to Personal Revolution

This class is taught by:

Amy Van Hollebeke

Amy is committed to living a life of joy and teaching classes that connect people to their own joyful potential.
Amy took her first yoga class in 2000 and was so impressed with the teacher that she kept coming back, hoping to catch some of her good energy. Amy quickly realized that the benefit for her was more emotional than physical. Once Amy made the connection between her reaction and her enjoyment of a pose, she realized she could take that off the mat and into the rest of her life. Almost immediately, Amy experienced the gifts yoga can bring and decided someday she would share that with others as a teacher. When Shakti East opened, Amy found her home studio and has been practicing there ever since. She jumped fully into the Shakti community, participating in 40-days to Personal Revolution programs and other challenges, along with the Baptiste Foundations Weekend and TAP. Amy completed her 200-hour teacher training at Shakti in the winter of 2012 and entered the Teacher Mentorship Program, working with Zak Endicott, Nicole Tsong and Tina Templeman.

Amy’s classes are challenging, with a playful energy that ensures they are accessible to all practitioners. Her intention is to have each student leave class with a calm mind, an open heart and a joyful spirit.
