Clayton Horton

Astanga Led

Clayton is an experienced and internationally known certified Ashtanga yoga teacher. He was born in Oklahoma, USA in 1965. He discovered yoga while living in San Francisco, California, when his mother took him to a pranayama class at age 21. After several years of practice and a long trip to India, he began teaching in 1996. To Clayton, yoga is a healing path back to the Self, allowing 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 both masters Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and the Greensufi for many years, both of whom gave him great inspiration to practise daily and develop a yogic lifestyle. He founded Greenpath Yoga in San Francisco, CA in October of 2001. The studio was one of America’s first Green and Environmental - Friendly yoga studios. with inspiring and progressive yoga programs, philosophies, events and authenticity. Clayton received Formal Authorization to teach Ashtanga Yoga from the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute of Mysore, South India in 2003 and he received Level Two Authorization in 2010. In August of 2016, while attending a special course for teachers led by Sharath Jois, Clayton was awarded with the auspicious blessing of Certification, the highest level of recognition for teachers from the institute. 

Clayton’s teaching style is traditional, yet light hearted and relaxed. He believes that by practicing and living yoga, we can transform ourselves and the world around us. According to Clayton, Ashtanga Vinyasa 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. Clayton’s favourite hobbies are surfing, swimming and playing guitar. He is committed to making the world a better place by living with eco-awareness, teaching yoga and meditation, serving others with charity work and offering music & Kirtan chanting.
