Clayton has been a student of yoga for 30+ years. At age 21 his mother took him to a pranayama class and after several years of practice and a long trip to India, Clayton felt the calling to teach.
Clayton’s teaching style is traditional, yet light-hearted and relaxed. He believes that by practising and living yoga, we can transform ourselves and the world around us.
For Clayton, yoga is a healing path back to the Self, which allows us to experience true peace and happiness. Being kind and living in balance with nature are qualities that continue to guide his life.
Clayton studied with masters Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and the Greensufi for 14 years, both of whom gave him great inspiration to practise daily and develop a yogic lifestyle.
In 2003 Clayton received formal authorisation to teach Ashtanga Yoga from the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute of Mysore, South India and in 2010 he received Level Two Authorization.
While attending a course for teachers in Mysore during the summer of 2016, Sharath Jois awarded Clayton with the blessing of ‘Certification’ – the highest level of accreditation for teachers at the institute.
According to Clayton, Ashtanga Yoga is a complete and well-balanced system in which an experienced and skilled teacher can help any student ‘find their place’ within its structure regardless of individual challenges, aptitude and constitution.
