Clayton Yoga, established in June, 2003, welcomes all levels and backgrounds to join us in playful yoga where each and every student is encouraged to go at their own pace.
Clayton Yoga has instructed over 5,000 community classes to Clayton residents and employees as well as in the greater St. Louis metro area. Both teachers and students alike find Clayton Yoga a great place to unwind (please read our testimonials here).
Every Yoga Instructor at Clayton Yoga has completed the same Clayton Yoga Teacher Training Program rated as the highest level of standards in the yoga industry.
As a 5 year all world professional tennis player, the owner, Michelle Maue, knew from her own experience that she could not keep playing tennis. She quit one day, because she was tired of proving herself and looking outside for validation while inside watching her own spirit slowly die.
Competition or winning for only gain was in of itself an empty experience. Tennis was a valuable tool to teach Michelle that the real game is not won or lost on the tennis court but in the inner battlefield of one’s own mind.
Through the ongoing practice of yoga, Michelle learned that true happiness is found in collaboration, kindness and inspiring others to also achieve their own unique and diverse potential. In doing so, this spirit based win-win approach continues to bring new found levels of creativity, insight and joy onto Michelle’s path and animate her yoga practice to newer heights…
From her first class in 1997, Michelle knew this Vinyasa style of yoga could reclaim everyone’s confidence, courage and joy again!
Vinyasa yoga was a win-win, and every student gained whether beginner or more advanced from the same free flow of proper instruction. No hot yoga needed here.
Students are empowered from their first class to begin where they are, not where they want to be, and from there, transform tension and fear into energy, excitement and joy.
When you are in spirit, or inspired “dormant forces, faculties, and talents come alive and you find yourslf to be greater than you ever thought you could be” Pantajali.
At Clayton Yoga, we help everyone to achieve their personal best!
Because each class is boutique style yoga, meaning there is never more than 8 students, the focus is not on perfecting yoga or how you look, instead the focus is to go with your light. Clayton Yoga absolutely works!
There is never pre-registration for the classes. Please do stop by 10 minutes before any class start time listed on our class schedule.
Simply bring your smile!
In 1997, she began practicing yoga and found that yoga was the most therapeutic form of exercise for the body, mind and spirit.
She founded Clayton Yoga in 2003, at the same location in Clayton, Missouri. Clayton Yoga also provides corporate yoga classes and Michelle has personally taught yoga to over 1,000 corporate students throughout St. Louis.
Her inspiration comes from following the rapture of her soul while watching her students remember and embrace their sacred path. Yoga reminds her each day that If you set your heart and mind to achieving your goal, step by step, anything is possible.
Yoga is a 5,000-year-old practice that reintegrates the mind, breath and body, providing each practitioner with a practice of recognizing one’s true nature: wholeness. Transforming our sleeping dragons of limitation, fear, and inadequacy through the practice of loving and witnessing our whole self brings us to a place where we stay open to the present. Each Clayton Yoga asana class challenges the student to witness their inner dialogue, create equanimity and move the body into anatomically challenging and safe vinyasa sequences bringing us to our full potential and creative possibilities.
