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. Competition or winning for only gain was in of itself an empty experience.

Giving up her favorite sport, Tennis, taught Michelle that, following one’s heart is also most important. Both Tennis and Yoga continue 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. Our true nature according to yoga is wholeness. Our mission is to take away what does not belong! When we quiet our busy mind, we can access this underlying radiant disposition.

“I work during business hours and I also have a part time job that I work evenings.  Now add on the day to day things like, grocery shopping, paying bills, maintaining my household…these things make finding time to exercise a bit of a challenge.  I don’t have that concern here.”

Natalie Warren, St. Louis County Employee, St. Louis, MO

yoga002aMichelle Maue received her Masters in Social Work at SIUE in 2001. Brought up in South Florida, Michelle played championship tennis until the age of 19.

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.
