About Clayton Horton

Clayton is an experienced and internationally known KPJAYI Certified Ashtanga yoga teacher who was born in Oklahoma, USA, just after the full moon rose on Teacher’s Day (10 September) in 1965. He discovered yoga at age 21 whilst living in San Francisco, California, when his mother took him to a pranayama class. 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 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 in October of 2001. The studio was one of America’s first green and environmentally-friendly yoga studios with inspiring and progressive yoga programmes, philosophies, events and authenticity. Clayton received formal authorisation to teach Ashtanga Yoga from the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute of Mysore, South India in 2003 and he received Level Two Authorisation in 2010. Whilst 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.

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. 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.

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 (karma yoga), and offering music & Kirtan chanting (bhakti yoga). www.greenpathyoga.org

About Tryphena Chia

In her former life, Tryphena used to work for the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company. Her life in New York City was highly stressful and she was constantly suffering from lots of anxiety and health related issues. In 2006, at a friend’s suggestion, she went to a yoga class and fell in love with it. Her health issues went away, she became more confident and started healing on a cellular level. She went from being an unhappy and angry person to someone who is happy and content with her life. Tryphena firmly believes that it is in our way of living that the spirit of yoga truly comes to life.

Tryphena is thankful to have found Baron Baptiste and Sri Dharma Mittra as her teachers. Baron has helped Tryphena to be fearless in stepping up to her fullest potential and to be a beacon of light for others so they can live to their fullest potential as well. Sri Dharma Mittra has taught Tryphena to have compassion for everyone and to be the first person to stand up to help anyone in need.

Tryphena believes in having fun and allowing ourselves to make mistakes on the yoga mat. The yoga mat is our playground. It is in allowing ourselves to make mistakes and fall that we can grow. Her classes can be challenging but they are fun and creative. She strives to teach more than just a yoga class but to leave people feeling energised and empowered after each practice. Tryphena has been told her voice has healing qualities, which complement perfectly the words of encouragement she gives her students during every practice. She wants her students to come on the mat just the way they are, not the way they think they should be. Do not strive to be perfect but just show up and allow the magic of yoga to happen because it always does.
