A sun salutation, unlike a bath of corn flakes or a shouting match with the neighborhood rooster, is a healthy way to start the day. Learn to greet the dawn with grace using today's Groupon: for $30, you get a five-class card at Clayton Yoga in Clayton (a $70 value).
Clayton Yoga was born from founder Michelle Maue's own discovery of confidence and energy through the ancient practice, and now provides a serene studio space where she imparts the same sentiments onto her students. Hour-long morning, afternoon, and evening classes take place five days per week and afford each yogi individualized instruction thanks to a six-student attendance cap. Wielding the sinew strengthening style of yin yoga, Michelle and fellow instructors teach mat-letes the pillars of the practice, helping them learn controlled breathing, the mind-and-body connection, and a perfectly pitched ohm that holds the power to tame wolverines.
Each hour-long limbering lesson loosens stiff joints while bolstering them with lean mat-earned muscle and optional cement socks. Yoganauts hooked to the practice after the course of this Groupon can further flexibility forays by inquiring about Clayton Yoga's retreats, including an upcoming teacher-training expedition in the Caribbean.
For over 12 years, a roster of Yoga Alliance–registered teachers have led more than 5,000 community classes and 2,500 corporate classes, guiding students of all backgrounds and skill levels through the calming movements of Vinyasa yoga. The modality helps detoxify bodies and strengthen the core, combining breathing techniques and movement. Along with Vinyasa-yoga classes, which meet six days a week in sessions of up to six students, Clayton Yoga hosts Thai-yoga-massage sessions, yoga retreats, and dance classes. Clayton Yoga was one of the first yoga studios in Missouri to offer a certified teacher training program, and Michelle herself has trained more than 300 yoga instructors. The studio also runs numerous wellness- and yoga-based corporate programs, where employers and employees collectively practice breathwork and restorative yoga.
