Michael first discovered the joys and benefits of yoga in 1997 while working in an Australian Apple orchid. Since then he has been practicing yoga and incorporating its philosophy into his life. His classes (often synchronized with breath and music) focus on fun, alignment principles and present moment awareness. He enjoys offering variations on poses so students can move at their own pace and and modify as desired. Michael’s kind and gentle manner is well suited to leading students of all levels on and off the mat. He and his wonderful wife Amy co-founded award winning Yoga One in 2002. They have two amazing children. Michael also enjoys surfing, drumming, listening to music, traveling, writing and spending time with friends and family.

Missy, E-RYT 500, 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 in 2019.

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 at the studio or in one of her classes!
