1 Minute Yogi

Starts Jan.9

A 21-day yoga challenge designed to help you build your 2020 yoga practice in 1 minute a day!

Dear Aspiring Yogi,

2020 is here, and with it, I bet you have some big goals.

Lose weight
Reduce chronic pain
Lower stress levels

Live a healthier lifestyle
Create a better work-life balance
Overcome anxiety

You deserve all of these things!! Sadly though, only about 8% of the population is successful at achieving their resolutions.

I can tell you from personal experience that the most important part of setting a resolution is starting slow.

For example, in 2006, when I made the New Year’s Resolution to touch my toes, I started small- just 1 yoga class a week for 1 month, that’s all the time I could offer. The next month I attended 2 yoga classes a week. The next month I started going 3 times a week, then 5 times a week, etc. It took a long time but the slow start helped me schedule in my yoga classes without a huge interruption to my current schedule. That consistency is what helped me achieve my resolution!

My 1 Minute Yogi challenge is designed to slowly help you build up a consistent yoga practice and be part of the successful 8%!

I’m Allison Rissel,

and I believe one good yoga teacher can change a life and create a community.

I am a consultant for yoga teachers, a yoga teacher trainer and a yoga therapist.

I became a yoga teacher in 2006. In addition to my master’s degree in exercise physiology, I have completed over 1,600 hours of yoga and yoga therapy trainings. I teach weekly group and private yoga therapy classes in Longmont, Colorado and I specialize in working with yoga teachers in chronic pain or pre/post-surgery.

I believe in the power of community and I’ve dedicated my life to helping build yoga communities. I’m the co-founder of the North Dakota Yoga Conference and I’m the president of the non-profit, Yoga Teachers of Colorado.

I offer in person 200 and 300 hour yoga teacher trainings in North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana and Colorado where I train yoga teachers to be knowledgable, safe, ethical and authentic community leaders. I also offer consultations for yoga teachers looking to create communities through conferences, studios, workshops and events.

I’m an extroverted optimist and I love hiking, skiing, being outdoors and enjoying a craft beer with my husband, Sean.
