No one in my class looked like the yoga teachers you might see in a magazine, but the training helped each of us to cultivate
our practice and identify the particular gifts each of us had to offer to the yoga community.

...definitely worth the investment!

Teacher training at Square One Yoga is definitely worth the investment! I made long-lasting friendships with my yoga teachers and my classmates. Every teacher is open, giving, and most of all, loving. It changed my 10 year yoga practice, especially through Kristyn’s “art of adjustments” and Jennie’s deep dive workshops on asanas. Katy prepares you by letting us teach among our peers as well as providing classes focused on the business aspect of yoga. I’m so grateful to have completed my teacher training in a supportive and accepting environment!

It was an amazing experience, a beginning still unfolding.

There are many trainings available in the Bay Area, for a range of cost with a range of experiences. I will continue to take trainings but will forever be grateful for the foundation I was given. I know that my teaching is colored by the lens of my training, and am grateful it makes me a more patient, open, adaptable teacher.

It was an amazing experience, a beginning still unfolding.
— Hope Amico
What I loved about the teacher training at Square One was the community.

The training provided a safe, loving space for me to meet my own personal challenges and to grow my practice from where I was when I began. The training provided a balance between pushing our own boundaries and being gentle with ourselves. No one in my class looked like the yoga teachers you might see in a magazine, but the training helped each of us to cultivate our practice and identify the particular gifts each of us had to offer to the yoga community.
