In the spring of 2008, TanO took his first yoga class. It was not a life changing experience. However, he continued to takes classes all throughout the DC area and as his practice grew more consistent, something started to shift. TanO began to evolve physically, mentally, and even spiritually.

TanO became a fixture at various retreats, workshops, and trainings and, in March of 2010, he found a home at Down Dog Yoga serving part-time at the front desk.  TanO set a goal to become a yoga teacher and never looked back.  He taught his very first yoga class in September of 2010. For him, it was the most exciting, petrifying and fulfilling experience ever. From that moment, TanO knew he had found his purpose. Over the next few years, TanO trained with many in the yoga world including Patty Ivey, Rolf Gates, and Baron Baptiste, all of whom he considers his teachers.

TanO intuitively teaches a high energy, power flow style yet he adapts to needs of each student.  Whether you’re looking for a heated flow, a silent sitting session, or a little something in between,  TanO offers a personable & professional approach to all that is possible through yoga.  More about: TanO Mazi Yoga.
