Level 2 Baptiste Power Vinyasa


This class is taught by:

Eva Lasprogata

Eva began her yoga practice in 2005 after many years of dance training, weight lifting and gym group exercise. She has been a professor of law, human rights and corporate citizenship for over a decade at Seattle University where she is tenured in the business school. For Eva, her left brain stress from business legal analysis, teaching and writing never found complete release at the gym. Yoga, however, was like magic, offering Eva a form of right brain bliss and inspired creativity. The practice of asana and meditation quickly became a part of her spiritual growth which draws further insight from Don Miguel Ruiz, John O’Donohue and First Nations’ traditions and worldview. Wanting to share her passion for yoga, Eva entered yoga teacher training in 2008 and is today an Associate Baptiste Instructor. She continues to study and learn from the many gifted teachers in the Seattle area, and enjoys taking classes and workshops from Lisa Black, Michel Spruance, Liz Doyle and Troy Lucero, to name a few. Teaching for Eva is pure joy! Her classes integrate the physical challenge of the Baptiste power vinyasa flow with her shared life experience, humor and compassion to inspire her students to be their most empowered selves both on and off the mat. One of Eva’s spiritual teachers, Angaangaq of Greenland, says that "the greatest distance in all of humanity is the distance between man’s mind and his heart. It is only when we bridge that distance that we can soar like the eagle." Eva believes yoga is that bridge, creating union between the heart and the mind so that we can come into our own power and live authentically with meaning and purpose, connected to both our humanity and our divinity, and most importantly to each other.

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.
