Read some of the testimonials we get from our yoga students!  And we want to see yours here too!

“I wanted to thank you again for taking the time to speak with me over the phone. I am on the right path though, and have a solid plan to make this work. It is not a question of “if,” but “when.” Thank you again, truly, for your kindness and patience. You thoroughly and sufficiently answered all of my most pertinent questions. I hope to speak with you again in the very near future”. – Erika Alison

“Thank you for precious dedicated individualized care even during pre-application process.” – Niraj Shah, M.D. – ABFM Certified Family Medicine Physician

“Thank you for your support and for sharing a phone consultation with me.., I am so looking forward to this journey with you for so many reasons and connecting more and learning from you and your life experience. Yes I know the preparation is so vital and getting organized too. I want to honor signing up for the Clayton Yoga training in a way that is playful and fun while also being gentle and nurturing with myself. Thank you so much for being supportive and understanding today, it means so much!” – Justine Dooley

“The focus and mastery of breathing in this training course and the breath as the central vehicle for uniting the physical body with the mind and spirit and the peace and tranquility that it achieves will fundamentally change my outlook on life”.  President of South Trinidad Chamber of Industry and Commerce

“I’ve been troubled with sciatica resulting from an injury when I was 8 years old, which fractured my pelvis. A few years ago, when my sciatic began troubling me, I sought treatment and received injections between L4 and L5 plus daily meds. The Dr. suggested back surgery. I began taking Clayton Yoga classes and after a few weeks I found myself relying less and less on the pain meds. Although I am not completely pain free yet, I am taking longer morning walks with my wife, experiencing less discomfort. Taking Clayton Yoga classes for over five years and back pain free.  Thanks for offering yoga classes!!” S.P

“Yoga Classes at Clayton Yoga have taught me that a wise person may use “the Gate Keeper” concept. It is helpful for sure. Things are really good but then I start having expectations that are not likely to become reality. My quick emotional response ends up in the usual step back but I seem to be getting some control when I breathe deep, don’t get overly worn out and return to the basic important things to work on in my life rather than going hell bent for leather on one tangent or another. You are truly a gift in my life. Thanks for the great yoga classes at Clayton Yoga!” Officer Nick Fredrickson

Ed testimonial Screen Shot 2014-11-20 at 10.51.35 AMI bought a Groupon and went to my first class today. What a wonderful surprise! I’ve taken a few classes at other studios/gyms (I’m new to the area). Yoga always felt like something that I should do–it would be good for me to stretch and relax. But until today I never understood why people actually LIKED yoga. It was relaxing and the environment was fun and supportive. I can’t wait to go back.”  Allison

Some of the testimonials we get from the participants of our Certified Yoga Teacher Training courses:

“I wanted to take the Yoga Teacher Training because I was ready for a deeper understanding of the asanas, fundamentals, anatomy, proper alignment and breath work of yoga.

The Yoga Teacher Training at Clayton Yoga is an amazing training. The program was the first to be certified through Yoga Alliance, which was important because I wanted a program that was accredited. The cost was very reasonable and competitive with other training programs in the area. Trainings can also be very costly in other ways such as timing and commitment. Michelle offers a 15 day intensive program that accommodated my schedule and was willing to work around any days that may have been conflicting.

I would recommend this training to anyone wanting to gain a better understanding of yoga. Michelle is a wonderful instructor/teacher. She is passionate about her work and creates a strong community within the program. I have formed many lasting friendships within the program while exploring my love for yoga. This training has been a transformational experience that has forever changed my life.” Lindsay Dausman, RN

“I have gained so much through this yoga training. Mostly, I have learned that other people are a reflection of myself.  It’s inspiring to be around people who are uplifting, healthy, and want to do good things for themselves and in the world.  I now know, I can contribute by being a positive force in other people’s lives and that I can offer my knowledge and experience as well.” Kristin Johnson
