Yoga One is honored to offer each student a deep understanding of yoga 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), philosophy/history 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 practice. 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!

All of Yoga One’s Teacher Trainings are affiliated with Yoga Alliance and MyCAA. We hope you will join us!
