“Completing my 300 Hour Training with Yoga One is the best decision I’ve ever made!” – L.S.
“You are all phenomenal! I’m so inspired…I learned so much and gained a community of students, teachers and friends, and worked through a lot of my own fears. It’s an amazing experience for anyone on their journey as a yogi and teacher.” ~ G.K.
200-Hour Program Overview:
All of Yoga One’s Teacher Trainings are affiliated with Yoga Alliance and MyCAA. Please see Topics Tab above or callfor more information. We hope you will join us!
Yoga One is honored to offer each student a deep understanding of yoga and its transmission with our comprehensive 200-hour Yoga Alliance Affiliated Teacher Training certification courses. Our highly experienced teachers are professional, inspiring and embody a full range of yogic knowledge: posture practice (asana), breathing (pranayama), history, philosophy and mindfulness in daily living.
We limit the class size so every student receives personalized attention and our course curriculum has been time tested, providing proven results and benefits on and off the mat. We offer tools and building blocks so each student can grow and evolve in their own unique way both as teachers and as individuals. In addition to helping students deepen their practice, we will teach how to lead safe, well-balanced and inspiring classes – much more than memorizing scripts and following a set format.
Yoga One has been training instructors to teach yoga since 2007. Our graduates have gone on to own or manage their own yoga studios (four right here in San Diego), lead yoga teacher trainings and retreats, as well as teaching in top yoga studios, gyms, corporations and private clients. We have had students come from as far away as London and Japan to train with us. We are excited to get to know you and grateful to share the joys and benefits of yoga practice and teaching!

“Yoga One’s Yoga Teacher Training truly opened my eyes, heart and mind to the world of Yoga. Deciding to enroll in the Teacher Training at Yoga One was one of the best decisions I have made for my practice…” ~ 2014 YTT Grad
“Learn how to see. Realize everything connects to everything else” ~ Leonardo da Vinci
Prerequisites: There are no prerequisites for our 200 Hour Course – we just ask that all students are open and committed to the study and practice of yoga with a sincere desire to learn (: We suggest that students register as soon as possible, so that they may begin taking studio classes (included with tuition) prior to commencement of the course.
Upon successful completion of the training, students who are taking the course solely to deepen their practice and/or those who do not fully participate in the practice teaching sessions will receive a 200 hour certificate designated with “non-teaching status” (which can be updated to “teaching status” at any time upon completion of practicum and demonstration of basic teaching ability).

“Yoga One’s training program was amazing and truly life-changing for me and my practice. After completion of the program, I feel extremely prepared to teach others and instruct classes. This program and everyone in the studio are exceptional and I am truly grateful for the experience.” ~ C.W.
“When delusion is gone and the truth is realized by means of enquiry into self-nature, when the mind is at peace and the heart leaps to the supreme truth, when all the disturbing thought-waves in the mind stuff have subsided and there is unbroken flow of peace and the heart is filled with the bliss of the absolute, when thus the truth has been seen in the heart, then this very world becomes an abode of bliss.” ~ Yoga Vasista
I have to say thank you again for last year’s training. It has deeply influenced my business and helped many of my existing clients with alignment, awareness and posture. I’d like to relay many thanks from my clients as well!
Yoga One exceeded my expectations of what I thought I would be learning. I have gained so much knowledge about yoga, its history and philosophy as well as proper alignment in postures and how anatomy factors into your practice and that of your student. Although I am currently an instructor, I am excited to put everything I learned into practice. This course made me a more confident and knowledgeable instructor than I was before. I am forever grateful to the instructors and these tools that I can now add to my yoga toolbox. At the end of the course, it wasn’t just a studio, they became an extended family.
Yoga One’s 200 hr training was absolutely great! From start to finish, this program was perfectly balanced and detailed (without feeling dry or rigid). Each instructor brought their own style and expertise, and all offered a nurturing and encouraging learning environment. This training has a wonderfully balanced focus between philosophy, alignment and foundational elements, and it is quite clear that each instructor continues to practice what they preach (and it never felt like preaching – it felt more like learning deeply from a wise group of very conscious friends!). I received an incredibly full foundational knowledge and am looking forward to further trainings with Yoga One in the near future! THANK YOU!
“Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity. I found strength in both my body and my mind that I did not know I had before. Every day I was pushed to the limits of my comfort zone, and carefully and respectfully guided to grow. I learned so much from the philosophy lectures, and have enjoyed looking at life from a new perspective. I appreciated how Amy, Nam, and Hillary met me where I was and encouraged me to do more than I thought I could do. Thank you to Missy, who encouraged me along the way and checked in with me often with an empathetic ear.
Thank you for staying late with me, for thoughtfully answering questions, for pushing me to grow, and for believing in me when I doubted myself. This has truly been a life-changing experience for me, and I appreciate all of the time and work you put into making this process enjoyable, efficient, and impactful. I am so grateful to have Yoga One, and all of its people in my life. Namaste,”
What prompted this email was an abundant feeling of gratitude. I successfully accomplished my first semester as a teacher at University of San Diego. It went so well, they re-signed me for the same curriculum section in the spring AND extended an offer to three additional group fitness classes!
I cannot thank you enough for the enriching experience I’ve had both as a student of your training, and as a teacher in the community. The by-product of the training has been tremendous. The insight to my own personal practice alone has gained so much depth…as a teacher, the smiles, gratitudes, blessings, the positivity I’ve witnessed are sooooo fulfilling, and it wouldn’t have been done without you. Lots of love.
Yoga One taught me exactly what I need to know to venture out in to the yoga world on my own. I feel confident in my own practice, as well as my teaching. Amy and Michael were absolutely incredible!
I am forever grateful for the TT experience. The meaning of yoga has evolved for me since embarking on this journey, and I plan to be a student of yoga for the rest of my life – using the tools and nuances I learned from my Yoga One family to bring my understanding of yoga well beyond just asana practice.
Yoga One teacher training program was the most transformational and spiritual experience of my life. I knew the moment I walked into the first day of the training that this training was going to change my life and it definitely did! Every teacher involved in the training was excellent, passionate, engaged, patient, and encouraging. They helped me tap into my inner most fears and challenges and the growth that I saw in myself gave me the motivation and inspiration I needed in order to change my life for the better. They all have a way of bringing out the best in you and I’m truly grateful and honored to have been a part of this training program. I would and have recommended this studio as well as the training to many people. They truly are an amazing group of people 🙂 – DH
Thank you so much for your wonderful teacher training course and for all the personal energy you put into each of us and your teaching each and every day. I think you are amazing and talented and learned so much in such a limited time. You both exude health, happiness, vibrancy and intelligence, a byproduct of your yogi lifestyle and will continue to inspire many other students who embark along the same path.
Thank you for everything you and Amy put into the program. It was truly a life-changing experience and I could not imagine a better place or group of people to have done my teacher training with.
I think of you and my YTT experience daily. The other day I taught my 3rd class …Whenever I’m asked about my training, the only words that come out of my mouth are superlatives: fabulous, outstanding, extraordinary, fantastic. My time with the Yoga One family was priceless.
I want to let you know how grateful I am to go through and experience your awesome teacher training. The teaching experience was great and so was getting to meet all the wonderful people there. Thank you for all your support.
“I would also like to add that what is so amazing to me is how much Michael and Amy really care. Seriously! These two not only provide this training at a fraction of the cost of what it will be worth in your life, but then, as if they had not already given and shared enough, they continue to enhance your life and your practice beyond the training. They send emails, they remember your name, they encourage your practice, they offer hugs when you are down, or an excited smile and hello when you come to class. They are amazing, and they also continue to attract the most fabulous team that makes up Yoga One (Missy being one of my personal favs!) who are equally passionate about making this a continuing life-enhancing, life-changing, life-amazing experience. They are phenomenal human beings doing really beautiful work. In deep gratitude, Namaste”“It was the best experience ever. I got everything I hoped from this course and would HIGHLY recommend it to ANYONE looking for a deeper understanding of yoga. Working with Diana was invaluable. Her deep understanding of alignment made every pose new and challenging for me in a way that will forever change the way I approach yoga. Amy’s welcoming attitude and genuine dedication made me feel very personally involved with this program in particular. I have no regrets about this program and I know I will stick with Yoga One for a long time to come. The community of people, dedicated alignment-based practice and welcoming atmosphere was truly inspiring.”
“I had an amazing experience… I was able to move right into a yoga position and have been teaching. My experience and training have given me an edge. if I had not been given the specific anatomy and detailed practice information, I would not be able to work with the population I do now. I teach gentle yoga and most of my clients are 60-80 years old and I am able to keep them safe!!! I also work with healthy back classes and clients that struggle with fibromyalgia. I am forever thankful for the journey with Yoga One! Thank you”
I was retiring (yay!) from a long and rewarding career in corporate accounting. The last dozen years or so were spent with troubled companies who needed a thorough housecleaning and/or revamping in order to position them for sale. It is much like buying a fixer-upper house. You are excited, work hard, sell it, then you are drained and have no place to live. Much of what I had to do at work involved tough love. Mentoring and rallying the team was fun but letting the non players go was the hardest part. My yoga practice helped me stay sane until I finally had enough. I decided to change my life, quit work, enroll in landscape architecture classes and take my yoga practice up a notch by getting my teaching certificate. About as far from corporate accounting as I could get!!
I was a month into my landscape and YTT (Yoga One Teacher Training) classes and I realized I found myself living in a KIND environment. I’d never lived like that before. Not growing up, not in my married life, and certainly not in my career. Sure, I tried to be kind and there were kind people along the way but never an entire environment that focused on kindness. I had no idea that people lived that way. That everything some people did was centered around kindness and thoughtfulness including surrounding themselves with other kind and gentle people. My landscape classes were less of a rarified version of the YTT classes but they, too, had a much greater dose of kindness than any of my past lives. WOW! What a wonderful revelation!
It has been an inspiration that I am able to carry with me far beyond the asanas. I hope I can leave a trail of kindness behind me as I walk though this life just as you [Michael] and Amy, my fellow YTT’s and everyone at Yoga One does. Shanti
This course inspired me to share yoga (with self and others) with more confidence and understanding. As a student I enjoyed being present, sharing with and learning from the beautiful teachers and students. I felt supported in working out the balance of taking the course and living my life. Learning the varying approaches to asana from discipline to discipline was insightful. Awesome studio! Awesome studio owners! I like you guys!
I really enjoyed finding out all the different reasons why people do yoga and how to approach yoga from many different directions, i.e. spiritual, physical, daily practice. This understanding can only happen in a group setting where people get to know each other through one activity. I learned a lot about my own resistance to daily practice and trying to work with this instead of against it.[The teacher training course] is a great way to focus on something you love that can bring health and happiness to the world. You made a safe and fun environment for us to explore ourselves and each other through yoga.
