Loom Teacher Training begins Oct 4th, 2018



After almost 2 years hiatus, I am so glad to be diving into the work of talking to dedicated practioners about what it means to share the practice with others. There are still a few more spots in my 2018 Teacher Training at the Peoples Yoga, and I would love for you to join me.


Here is what past  Students have to say:


“The Loom School training with Alison Alstrom was the teacher training I’d always hoped for! Not only did it give me a thorough training in how to instruct yoga in a safe and intelligent manner, but it also deepened my own yoga practice far beyond my expectations! At the end of the training I felt confident and prepared to begin my journey as a teacher as well as continue on as a student.

The length of the training gave me enough time to genuinely integrate the heaps of information that was taught. It was also because of the length that the community built around our training felt so supportive and lasting and has continued beyond the training as we begin our own teaching careers.

The training wove rich tapestries of meaning to my own practice as well as to my role as a teacher. My understanding of Hindu myth and literature, of anatomy and alignment-based practice, and of how to cultivate my own inner teacher were all deepened exponentially. These qualities were then united into one practice with the help of Alison. She taught us how to guide people through the physical asana practice of yoga while at the same time making space for inquiry into all the other elements that yoga has to offer.

Alison teaches not only with her content, but also by example. She lives the things she teaches and is an honest and genuine leader who pushes and challenges her students even as she respects and encourages them.

As I begin to share my love of yoga with others, I am regularly reminded how much I learned during the training, and I feel grateful for having been taught so thoughtfully and lovingly so that I may now teach with equal amounts of integrity and love.”

Nearly 5 years ago I had the opportunity to immerse myself in Alison’s beautiful teachings. At the time I already had a Teacher Training under my belt and had been teaching yoga for several years, but I felt like something in my teachings was missing. I approached the Immersion with a Beginner’s mind and I learned so much about myself and yoga that year. My yoga practice and teachings improved exponentially because of the Immersion and Teacher Training. If you have the opportunity to learn from Alison, please do yourself a huge favor and sign up for this. It will transform your life.
