September 2024 – February 2025: Contact us for more details

We are excited to get to know you and grateful to help you expand your skills, knowledge, confidence and inspiration in sharing the joys and benefits of yoga with others. Yoga One has been training instructors to teach yoga since 2007. All of our trainings blend ancient yogic philosophy and mindfulness practices with modern asana and teaching techniques within a supportive, friendly, inclusive community.

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 with private clients.

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

“Completing my 300 Hour Training with Yoga One is the best decision I’ve ever made!” – L.S.

Course topics include:

Teaching methodology & practicum: 

Refine the art of teaching through experiential learning: effective, creative and inspiring lesson planning, sequencing for a variety of levels and styles, clear and inclusive language, hands-on assisting, optional use of Sanskrit, and more.

Delve into areas of specialization based on your unique interests and present final projects to the group.

Asanas (postures): 

Engage with detail and nuance to move beyond yes or no answers. High-level professionals can view the same set of data and arrive at different conclusions; often the answer is, “It depends.”

Accessibility and trauma sensitivity: 

Explore principles and practices including how to incorporate breath-work, accessibility and trauma sensitivity into your teaching and life.

Functional Anatomy:

Gain practical knowledge, confidence and ease in tailoring your instruction. Expand your understanding of anatomy as it relates to yoga, including prevention of common yoga injuries and tools for more effectively helping students.

Philosophy and history: 

Dive into yoga philosophy including but not limited to Chakras, Koshas, historical and modern contexts both on and beyond the mat.

Community:

Support and motivate one another to be authentic and committed students of yoga so that we can most effectively and responsibly share the joys and benefits of yoga with others.

Classes at Yoga One:

Enjoy attending, evaluating and assisting classes as part of your tuition (classes expire on last day of course). Existing memberships can be frozen.

300 Hour Certificate:

Upon successful course completion, students will receive a 300 Hour Certificate and be eligible to register with Yoga Alliance at the RYT-500 level.

“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.

Instructors:

Missy DiDonato – Lead: Asana and Teaching Refinement including Accessibility, Adjustments (verbal and hands-on), Trauma Sensitivity, Gentle and Restorative Yoga, Chakras and more.

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, attending their 200-hour Teacher Training. Missy’s love of knowledge and self-growth inspired her to complete Yoga One’s 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training.

As a human and 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 practice that meets each student where they are. She is also Yoga One’s OM (Office Manager), come say hi to her at the studio or in one of her classes!

Anna Hartman – Functional Anatomy / Movement Education

Anna is a world-class athletic trainer, movement educator, anatomy nerd, speaker, serial people-pleaser, and constant learner.

As an athletic trainer, she has worked exclusively with elite and professional athletes in the NFL, MLB, NBA, USTA, WTA, PGA, LPGA, NHL, MLS, Olympics, USATF and Division 1 universities. Along with many years of experience treating professional athletes, her sports health care practice is an integration and assimilation of over 5000+ hours of professional continuing education, blending approaches from many influences such as movement impairment systems, DNS, Pilates, yoga, EXOS, FMS, visceral and neural manipulation, and more.

Between her blog, Movement Map Webinar, Group Mentorship Program, speaking and consulting, she educates fellow healthcare practitioners so that they can take ownership of their practice. You’ll be blown away by how much you’ll learn from Anna’s many different philosophies, approaches and methods which are all boiled down into her tried-and-true, unique approach to anatomy and her belief in the body’s ability to heal itself.

She loves lounging in a hammock with a good book (or for a nap), any type of dip, fruity cocktails, staying active, and asking good questions. Anna is at her best when she’s serving others and or at the beach – or better yet, both.

Nazli E-RYT 500, has spent over a decade teaching yoga, training yoga teachers, and leading retreats around the world. Holistic wellness is a lifelong love of hers, and her passions lie in creative movement, sound healing, and breathwork.
