I HAVE BEEN PRACTICING YOGA SINCE MY SENIOR YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL, WHERE I TOOK MY FIRST DOWN DOG IN A GYM CLASS LED BY A RECORDED CD. I TRIED MANY DIFFERENT STYLES OF YOGA ASANA OVER THE YEARS, BEFORE DISCOVERING BAPTISTE YOGA, A PRACTICE I WAS DRAWN TO FOR THE PHYSICAL CHALLENGE, AND HAS SINCE TRANSFORMED MY RELATIONSHIP TO MYSELF AND OTHERS. I HAVE COMPLETED TWO 200HR BAPTISTE YOGA TEACHER TRAININGS, AND OVER 200HRS OF YOGA TRAININGS WITH THE BAPTISTE INSTITUTE. MY CLASSES ARE BOTH NURTURING AND RIGOROUS – A COMBINATION THAT I BELIEVE ENCOURAGES POSSIBILITY AND OPENNESS IN OUR BODIES AND MINDS. I REMIND MY STUDENTS TO BE UP TO SOMETHING BIGGER, GET OUT OF OUR COMFORT ZONES, FIRST ON OUR MATS AND THEN IN OUR LIVES!
One of my greatest gifts is awareness and understanding of when to challenge students to go further, and when to encourage students to back off. When I am teaching in the room, I am completely present and aware of what is going on with each and every one of my students. I empower each student to become the best that their bodies and minds will allow in that moment. When you practice with me, you will feel loved for who you are, as you are, and you will walk away from each class feeling strong and inspired.
My teaching journey began at Samadhi Center for Yoga & Meditation where I completed a 250 hour Hatha Yoga training that focused on many different styles of yoga practice, including restorative and therapeutics. Shortly after, I eagerly sought out more training to deepen my own practice as well as my passion for teaching others. I have taken Therapeutic and Restorative training workshops with Judith Hanson Lasater and Baptiste Power Yoga trainings and workshops. I am a 750 hour certified Baptiste teacher. I have attended the Baptiste Art of Assisting program with Baron Baptiste and I am currently enrolled in the Baptiste Fit to Lead Program.
I am outgoing, fun and free-spirited. I love the outdoors, slack lining and snowboarding. When I am not in the yoga room or on the mountain, you can find me spending quality time with family and friends, which of course includes my gentle giant English Mastiff dogs.
Allison Allison Rissel believes our physical health directly affects our mental and emotional well-being. She has been helping people achieve a healthier lifestyle through yoga, personal training and exercise since 2006. In 2009, Allison stumbled upon Bikram yoga and began regularly attending classes in Austin, TX. Her knee pain disappeared, her anxiety subsided and she fell in love with Bikram so much that she published three studies examining the pulmonary, cardiovascular, and psychological effects of Bikram yoga. Allison holds her master's degree in Exercise Science, and her extensive anatomy & biomechanics training have given her the tools to work with a variety of clients including seniors, athletes, teens, and those suffering from chronic pain. She strongly believes that yoga is adaptable for every body and that proper modifications and adjustments can help relieve current pain or prevent future damage.
Allison completed her 500-hour yoga teacher training with Camp Utopia and is also the co-owner of the enLIGHTen program, a coaching program that helps individuals lose weight and gain more energy by learning healthy behaviors through the use of the yoga chakra system. When she's not at Odyssey Yoga Studio, she's either playing outside or traveling around the country training new yoga teachers. When you see Allison in classes or riding her bike around Longmont make sure to wave and say "HI!"
