Former professional dancer and M+Yoga owner Maggie Clayton discovered yoga as a retreat from the physical and mental stress of professional ballet. M+Yoga's schedule offers classes that cover an array of yoga styles to suit the needs of a beginning body bender or an advanced sun saluter, with a special focus on rigorous Ashtanga yoga. Yoga fundamentals, yoga flow, and intro yoga classes ease beginners and intermediate students through a series of poses to increase posture, form, and flexibility. The challenging breathing-and-flexion techniques of Vinyasa and advanced Ashtanga sessions help yogis enhance their balance, speed up their metabolism, and fold up into their sousaphone cases for post-parade naps. Maggie also combines her two passions with a ballet fusion class, bringing elegant, graceful elements of classical ballet to the introspective world of yoga.
Recessed coves, archways, and modern track lighting set an artful backdrop at M+Yoga, with hardwood floors and plenty of space providing a perfect yoga stage for classes.

As a professional dancer with Ballet Oklahoma, studio owner Maggie Clayton suffered chronic pain and soreness from the physical strain of her career, and turned to yoga in 1990 for its therapeutic potential. Yoga quickly became not only a source of relief for Maggie, but a catalyst for personal growth, and she spent nine years nurturing her own practice before teaching yoga classes to share "the ultimate mental and physical therapy for one's body from everyday life" with her students. Bolstered by the support of a staff of dedicated instructors, Maggie helms a studio curriculum that emphasizes Vinyasa and Ashtanga yoga styles. Instructors lead groups of pupils through mindful breathing techniques and into vigorously transitioning sequences of poses, much like an underwater dance off. During beginners' sessions, the instructors teach fundamental poses and alignment principles with demonstration and verbal cues, whereas teachers in more advanced classes keep chakras on their toes by introducing trickier arm balances and deep twists at a quicker pace.
