Allison Rissel holds her master’s degree in Exercise Science and has been teaching yoga classes since 2006. She is a 200-hour Yoga Alliance registered yoga teacher and she hopes to link science and yoga so that all people will become believers of the healing practice. In fact, Allison's master's thesis was on the cardiovascular effects of yoga. Allison was a lecturer at Texas State University, and the Assistant Director of Total Wellness, a San Marcos NPO providing wellness programs for faculty and employees of the local university and school systems and San Marcos Activity Center. She's into a hundred other yoga related projects this year - in a race to acquire experience and tools to take her dreams to the next level.
