The chakra map will serve as a guiding light towards uncovering our truth path and dharma.

We will continue to deepen our practice of meditation, mantra, pranayama and asana.

How can yoga transform your life, your passion, and your dharma?

Weekend one includes grounding and getting to know each other a little bit, physical practice, meditation, an overview/review of anatomy basics, and a deep dive into the mechanics of the lowerbody – how things work, why things break down, how to assess where the problem is, and how to correct it.

Weekend three includes learning about our body’s energy and alignment to authentically attune to ourselves and the emotional needs of our students.

I had been teaching for 8 years prior to the training. I wanted a deeper understanding of yoga and to refine my teaching style.
My classes have become more mindful. I have a much larger “tool box” which adds to the variety of classes that I teach. I’ve taken 8 other types of yoga educational classes and Allison is by far the best. Her knowledge, energy and passion are contagious.

Jim Redlinger

Throughout my yoga teacher training, my physical and spiritual perception grew. Allison is so dedicated and prepared. It was an amazing experience to get my teacher training with a beautiful human like her. She will make sure you become the best teacher you can be.

Allie Houston
Minot, ND

Throughout my yoga teacher training, I have become an effective teacher with a toolbox of shills to prepare a yoga class. Personally, I have seen growth and a change in my family and home life. My husband even commented my participation in the training has changed the atmosphere of our family and home life in a positive, loving, more balanced way.

Angie Czech
Watertown, SD

I believe that teaching yoga is not necessarily about looking like someone on Instagram, but learning about my body and finding my perfect posture. Allison helped me find confidence as a yoga teacher. I feel more optimistic and open to opportunities in becoming a yoga instructor.

Your Teachers

Shauna Hylenski

Shauna Hylenski
Lead Teacher

Shauna is the owner of Shri Studios in Longmont and manages and teaches in the Powered by Shri Yoga program at Longmont Climbing Collective.

She has been practicing yoga for over 20 years and has been teaching all ages and skill levels for 8 years. She was initially drawn to yoga as a supplement for her dance technique classes in NYC.

Shauna quickly realized there was more going on in her practice than the physical experience, which motivated her to learn more. The basis for her training has been in the Anusara Yoga system and has been greatly influenced by her experiences in AcroYoga and she has recently completed her Aerial Yoga Teacher training.

What can you expect from a class with Shauna? To feel grounded and calm. Shauna expertly guides her students deep inside their own bodies and minds, where they will discover their own inner wisdom and true teacher, themselves.

Meet Allison at the next Yoga Teacher Talk in Longmont.

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 people 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.

Meet Allison at the next Yoga Teacher Talk in Longmont.
