Missy began practicing yoga in 1997 by following along to a VHS tape in her living room. As her body awareness improved and she noticed how calm she felt, she started to practice yoga consistently by taking classes at a local studio. In 2010, Missy completed a 200-hour Teacher Training at UCSD and jumped into giving classes, eager to share her passion and knowledge with others. In 2012, she continued her education at Yoga One, completing another 200-hour Teacher Training. She recently became RYT 500 after completing Yoga One's 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training. As a teacher, Missy is warm and friendly. She grounds students in an ongoing awareness of breath while guiding them through poses with clear directions, modelling, and hands-on adjustments.

Nicole Perrin, RYT-200- began her teaching journey with the loving support of Yoga One after completing their Yoga Teacher Training in March 2012. Since, then she has fallen in love with sharing the gift of health and well-being thru yoga. Drawing upon various styles including Vinyasa, Anusara, and Power Yoga, her classes are an energetic and well-rounded expression of yoga that emphasize alignment-based movement led by the breath.
Nicole guides students to awakening and becoming aware of their own bodies through dynamic flow, rhythmic breathing, and a playful mindset. In maintaining a mindful practice, she believes the mind-body connection supports us in living a more fulfilling, healthy life on AND off the yoga mat. Whether it's some good physical heat, or some mindful grounding, she encourages her students to follow what they need in that moment by creating a space to foster playfulness, curiosity, and intentional being.
Yoga has also led her to her current endeavor of obtaining her Masters degree in Occupational Therapy (graduating November 2020) where she is excited to continue sharing the amazing benefits of yoga and mindfulness in the health care setting.
