SPECIAL CLASS | Kirtan with Clayton Horton
You are invited for a heartwarming community night with devotional chanting and heart songs!

Join Clayton for an evening of Kirtan devotional chanting and heart-songs. Celebrate the coming together of the Amsterdam yoga community in an elevation of consciousness, healing and Self remembering.

The word “kirtan” stems from a Sanskrit root that means “to cut through”, so kirtan is a practice for cutting through the idea of separation, for connecting to our hearts and connecting to the present moment through sound. Chanting as a group brings us together as a community in a way that no other form of yoga does.

Clayton has been coming regularly to teach Ashtanga Yoga in Amsterdam for over 10 years, and we always had the pleasure to add a kirtan to his teaching schedule, as he’s always traveling with his guitar. Don’t miss it!

Everyone’s welcome.

Clayton is an experienced and internationally known KPJAYI Certified Ashtanga yoga teacher who was born in Oklahoma, USA. 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 14 years, both of whom gave him great inspiration to practise daily and develop a yogic lifestyle. 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. 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.

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.

From 2001-2006, Clayton operated Greenpath Yoga Studio in San Francisco, California, USA. The studio was one of America’s first Green and Environmental – Friendly yoga studios. It was an inspiration with its progressive yoga programs, philosophies, events and authenticity. The studio helped to inspire awareness of Earth Friendly yoga practices, philosophies and products. Currently, Clayton teaches Daily Ashtanga classes at Pure Yoga in Hong Kong. He teaches workshops, retreats, courses and presents at yoga conferences internationally. His favourite hobbies are surfing, swimming, singing 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).


We offer special classes on a variety of topics with different teachers and generally on friday evenings. You will find these special classes on the online schedule and they can be booked with the same cards/memberships as per the regular classes. We hope in this way to enrich your experience of yoga with us, with a touch of inspiration coming from a different prospective.
