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. Gently spiritual in her approach, she provides a physical workout that students of all levels can easily modify. She is also our OM (Office Manager), come say hi to her in the nook or one of her classes!
