Allison Rissel’s Yoga Workshops

Inspiration and Continuing Education

Do you want to create a bigger impact for your yoga students?

Are you looking to generate passive revenue at your studio?
Do your teachers need Yoga Alliance CEU’s?

Workshops help yoga studios inspire and educate their yoga teachers and yoga students while generating additional passive income.

I’m searching for yoga studios who want to be leaders in their yoga communities and offer education for their teachers and students who can’t afford to travel to earn weekend CEU’s or update their yoga knowledge.

The workshops below vary in length from 2, 4 or 8-hour sessions to full weekends.

Ask me about pricing and how a full weekend workshop can save you money!

I never had any proper training in hands-on adjustments and I was afraid of breaking my students. After taking Allison’s hands-on adjustments workshop, I feel so much more comfortable working with students and doing hands-on adjustments. Allison is such a wonderful and supportive woman. She is always available to ask for advice or information. Furthermore, Allison encourages you during your learning practice and she challenges you to listen to your own body while learning that every body is different.
