Katy invites her students to continually explore what is most useful and beneficial to them on the mat and beyond.

Her passion for health and well-being shine through her teachings as she inspires students to practice in an authentic and mindful way, understanding that health and yoga are not 'one size fits all'.


Mary Beth Ray, E-RYT500, began studying and practicing yoga in the early 1990s. Since 2006, her practice has drawn her deeply into the moving meditation and self-discovery of the Ashtanga Vinyasa system and more recently into the stillness and inquiry of Yin yoga. MB shares the exploration of the many facets of yoga in an accessible manner to help you apply practical insights to your everyday life.


Stacey Swan believes that yoga has the capacity to empower, transform, and support the physical, emotional, and mental layers of the human experience in a way that brings us deeper compassion and understanding of our world and our place within it. Stacey encourages her students to practice in a focused and safe manner with instruction that is clear, warm, and light hearted. With twelve years teaching experience and over 800 hours of training she has studied Astanga, Vini-yoga, Anatomy, and Restorative.

...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!
— Jen Su
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.

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.
