"I am grateful for my health. I got sick for the first time in years, and the moment I was able to take a deep full body breath I remembered how lucky I am to do something so simple.

And in hindsight I'm thankful for the lesson of slowing down, something I am not the best at ◡̈ "

"I am grateful for the love of my family, inspiring books, coffee in the morning and all my morning walks in nature.

I'm also very grateful for the opportunity to share sound healing with the community at Yoga One—It has been almost exactly one year since Missy and I began offering Reiki + Sound and it has been such a joy in my life.

Listening to Michael Stone's podcast, Awake in the World, introduced me to this teaching:

Life and death are of supreme importance.
Time passes swiftly and opportunity is lost.
Let us awaken. Awaken!
Do not squander your life.
- Dōgen

I hope to hang on to this perspective during the holiday hyperdrive. It reminds me of the importance of being open and compassionate in each and every moment."

- Dawn Fonseca


"I'm grateful this month (and every month) for the ability to move and breathe with ease. The daily happenings of being human makes it so easy to forget...

it's a privilege to be able to wake up in the morning, take a nice deep breath, and get out of bed. I'm also grateful for ice cream and waffle cones."

- Jackie Liu, Yoga One Teacher

Q: Can you tell us a time yoga supported you through a transition?

Michael: My yoga practice feels like an old friend.

The kind of best friend that knows you as well or better than yourself, who accepts you for who you are, yet coaxes and inspires you to be your best self.

Over the years, yoga has helped me do all the things I enjoy doing, drumming, surfing, goofing with the kids, etc.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, when we went into lockdown our biggest concern was how do we teach yoga?

Laura McCorry, our secret resource, shepherded the studio to pivot online. And in just two days we were offering our full schedule via zoom.

It was such a phenomenal moment when the community transitioned together - alone at home on our mats - but still together online and in spirit.



Overheard in class:

"Pay attention to how this pose feels in your body. Not how you think it should look or should feel. Observe what is. Stop should-ing all over yourself."
- Missy DiDonato

We definitely believe that keeping some lightness, some humor, is essential to a good yoga practice!



We're ready to move!

Q: Can you tell us a time yoga supported you through a transition?

Amy: I was recently speaking with a friend about the popularity of the game of tag. She thinks in addition to the thrill of being chased, part of what kids love and appreciate is that there is a home base built in.

This week I've been thinking about how our yoga practice serves that same purpose - a home base where we can reconnect, reflect and restore.

Transitions for me are often challenging, and this year there have been many!! Including but not limited to our oldest daughter leaving for college, our younger son starting high school, aging, and general post-pandemic life.

My yoga practice, and also teaching yoga, are refuges. When I'm feeling untethered, I often begin my practice lying on the floor. After connecting to a sense of grounded-ness and support - breath, movement, and a feeling of being at home often arise.

P.S. You might note that within the practice itself, poses like savasana, seated centering, balasana, tadasana and adho mukha svanasana serve as additional familiar mini-home bases 🙂



Q: What's your ideal cozy Fall morning?

Nazli: Give me a cold and rainy day and this is my set-up:

my cozy couch, fireplace on, a cup of cacao, a wonderful book, and my journal.

I'll probably throw on a face mask too and feel extra luxurious as I read and relax.

Hopefully someone is serving me food because I am not getting up from this! ◡̈.

Nazli teaches Vinyasa Flow on Sundays at 10:30am



Do the poses matter? Yes!

Do the other seven limbs of yoga beyond asana (the physical poses) matter? Also yes!

Which aspect of yoga first drew you to the practice?

Image shows Amy seated in meditation with the text: "Yoga has become less about physical accomplishments and more about learning how to live in the world, with present moment awareness and an open heart and mind."

Get to know your Yoga One teachers!

Q: Can you tell us a time yoga supported you through a transition?

Lori: Just recently, my son moved out of our home and into the dorms at UCSD. My husband and I are now empty-nesters. This was a very exciting, stressful and emotional time for all of us.

Our son was stepping into independence, and my husband and I found ourselves in a delicate place of wanting to help and wanting to give him space.

Getting on my mat and moving with my breath kept me centered and grounded throughout this whole process. I set my intentions and guided myself through the process of letting go.

When big feelings came up or during a stressful moment, taking slow, deep, conscious breaths brought me back to that place of centered presence. I'm so grateful for my yoga practice!



Just reminder that your yoga practice is always there for you, to support you during both seasonal and life changes 🍂🧘🏾

Yoga One Co-founders, Amy & Michael's yoga origins…

In 1997, we traded working in the Hollywood music business for three years of backpacking around the world. During that time, we discovered and fell in love with yoga. Upon returning to the U.S., we decided to share the joys and benefits of yoga with others. We are honored to have been enhancing the well-being of yoga lovers ever since (20 year this year and counting).

Our mission is to help as many people as possible enjoy healthier and happier lives.

"The attitude of loving kindness is my biggest take away from the Yoga One Teacher Training. For myself and for others. I have been much kinder to myself in my practice as well as in daily life." - Ariana - Yoga One Teacher Training Graduate

Q: How does yoga show up in your life right now?

At this point in life, yoga is a way of being. It's a deep breath when life gets weird, it's a trust that life is moving along as it should, and it's an array of tools when things are overwhelming and I need help or guidance, and an added bonus when everything is going my way ◡̈.

Q: Where are you experiencing growth in your life?

Where am I not?! Haha ... seriously though... one piece is that I am evolving my career and work and am growing into a sense of firm confidence and a clear vision of what is sustainable for my future and goals. TBD what that looks like!

Q: What's your favorite burrito?

I'm a simple bean and cheese gal -- with too much hot sauce!

Our Story

Yoga One began in an Australian apple orchard.

Amy and I left our Hollywood music business gigs to travel around the world exploring diverse cultures. To help fund our three and a half year adventure, we picked apples in Stanthorpe, Australia. A standard work shift was 10 hours a day for 10 days straight. On our off day, we happened to discover the joys and benefits of yoga from the book "Fit for Life."

Hooked, we spent six months in India studying and deepening our practice. We got engaged in Nepal at 18,800 feet with Mt. Everest as a witness. Another highlight was enjoying four days alone together on an uninhabited Fijian island.

In 2002, we opened award-winning Yoga One with a mission to help as many people as possible live healthier and happier lives. We've honored to have been voted Best Yoga in San Diego for over ten years.

We offer a positive, warm, friendly environment. Our instructors are knowledgeable and teach optimal alignment principles.

We look forward to sharing the joys and benefits of yoga with you. Namaste!
