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. She has certifications in Trauma-Informed yoga, Prenatal, Restorative and Yoga for Backs. Missy is also a Reiki Master trained under Olivia Hughes.

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 Studio Manager, come say hi to her at the studio or in one of her classes!

A few things students are saying about Missy’s studio classes: “I love taking Missy’s class! I like how she creates a healing space, leads intuitively, and builds community through her offerings.” “Missy is authentic, intentional, and fully present with a wide variety of students in the class.”

After working in a biology lab for a year, Jenn decided to pursue her passion to help people and obtain her doctorate in physical therapy. From there, Jenn studied and trained extensively with Rachel Krentzman to learn how to combine her physical therapy knowledge with therapeutic yoga techniques to help patients recover from injury and manage chronic conditions. Additionally, Jenn has been advancing her functional manual therapy capabilities through The Institute of Physical Art and has spent a great deal of time studying with Judith Lasater, Shauna MacKay, Gerhard Gessner and Roger Cole.  Jenn has teaching certifications in Yoga Wall, Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga, Yoga for a Happy Back and yoga therapeutics. In 2020, Jenn started her own physical therapy practice, The Movement Mechanic PT to combine these diverse skill sets to help clients rehab their injuries and improve their overall well being through mindful movement.

In the San Diego community, Jenn teaches weekly therapy-based yoga classes utilizing The Great Yoga Wall. She strives to honor and support each student’s individual needs, using her deep understanding of anatomy and physiology to help them find their optimal version of each asana.   Jenn also teaches functional yoga anatomy lectures for yoga teacher trainings at various studios in San Diego as well as yoga therapy workshops for teachers and practitioners.  When Jenn is not working with clients, she enjoys dancing and exploring San Diego with her two children.
