My Story

Clay Griggs, "I enjoy being around people and teaching, training, and showing them things that might bring them joy or overall well being."
    Clay began practicing Yoga over two decades ago and briefly taught yoga at The Firm, a local gym in southern Overland Park, Kansas, before entering the U.S. Army.  Clay served in The U.S. Army as a Medical Lab Tech where he strengthened as an instructor in the technical field and areas of physical fitness.  Clay participated and frequently led PT daily exercises in regular Army fashion as part of his ongoing training.  After being severely injured, Clay began alternative exercises.  Yoga played a serious role in Clay's recovery and in helping other soldiers regain strength and mobility as well as peace of mind. 
Clay honorably exited the U.S. Army and began a life of self employment which ultimately led to his Yoga certification in 2023.  He also gained his CRI "certified Ross instructor."  He is certified to teach the Bob Ross Wet on Wet oil landscape technique.  Clay built his website "" to provide accessibility to art and fitness-yoga all in the same place.
